What should my daily sodium intake be?

Monday, October 07, 2019

I was talking to a client this morning about sodium and processed foods. My suggestion was to look at the sodium content of food and their daily intake. The American Heart Association recommends no more than 2,300 milligrams (mg) a day and moving toward an ideal limit of no more than 1,500 mg per day for most adults. Because the average American eats so much excess sodium, even cutting back by 1,000 milligrams a day can significantly improve blood pressure and heart health. And remember, more than 70 percent of the sodium Americans eat comes from packaged, prepared and restaurant foods — not the salt shaker. https://www.heart.org
