New daily sodium limits are up - can I stop worrying about how much salt I eat?
Oct 27, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Globe and Mail
I heard the daily sodium limit has been increased. Does this mean I don't have to be concerned about how much salt I eat? Earlier this month Hypertension Canada announced a proposed recommendation to decrease daily sodium intake to 2,000 milligrams - an increase from the current 1,500-milligram limit - in an effort to lower blood pressure.
Still be aware, this may just be a fad statement. Also be aware of Potassium intake. Potassium and Sodium (Chloride as in common salt) are blood relatives to each other and as such, may enhance High Blood Pressure.
