Reduce Sodium Intake | Cut 1,000+ Mg From Your Daily Diet
(It's a lot easier than you might think.)
Most of us should be eating no more than 1,500 mg of sodium a day. Americans average, however, about 3,500 mg daily. Get quick and easy tips to reduce sodium intake. Enjoy a healthier (and still delicious) life.
The mega amounts of salt (sodium chloride) we eat is an absolute disaster for our bodies. And it’s really no surprise. The human body simply wasn’t designed to take in so much salt.
The result of our high sodium consumption are shockingly high rates in our country of hypertension (nearly 90% of Americans develop this silent killer), as well as strokes, heart attacks, renal failure, senility, erectile dysfunction, stomach cancer, kidney stones, and osteoporosis (brittle bones).
The good news is that food producers and restaurants are starting to lower the crazy amounts of sodium in their food, but they’ve got a long way to go. So it’s vital that we as consumers make every effort we can, like reading food labels on the products we buy at the market and, whenever possible, researching nutrition information pdfs that many restaurant chains now post on their website. They’re real eye-openers.
We’ll help you get started. Below are some easy switches that can help shave 1,000+ mg of sodium off your daily diet in no time.
