How Much Sodium You Need Per Day?

Most normal people consume far more sodium than is healthy. As a result, many people have a higher chance of getting diseases like

heart disease or stroke that are linked to excessive salt levels. A healthy adult should take no more than 2,300 mg per day, ideally no

more than 1,500 mg. Depending on their age, children and younger adults need even less salt. Excessive consumption of sodium is

harmful, but so is insufficient sodium. You may create a meal plan that includes low-sodium items to

make sure you're receiving the ideal amount of salt in your diet. You may ask a nutritionist or

healthcare professional for guidance on how to obtain the necessary amount of salt if you're unsure of where to begin.
