Sodium

Sodium is a necessary mineral that everyone needs in their diet. However, consuming too much can lead to high blood pressure and increase your risk of heart disease.

The current recommendation is 2300 mg. per day for the average healthy adult. Someone who has health problems may want to consider limiting their intake to 1500 mg. per day.

Be sure to look at nutrition labeling, which is provided on all packaged products, to help you determine how much sodium is in the foods you consume. Remember, the amount listed is per serving, and most packages are not single serving containers.
