Salt Intake – You Do The Maths

Do you actually know how much salt you need?

The current average daily intake for adults is 8.6 grams. You would see a significant decrease in the risk of heart disease and high blood pressure if you were to reduce that to 3 grams.

The trouble is not many of us truly appreciate how easy it is to go over board with our salt.

Just to give you an idea-  most sliced breads hide 0.5 grams per slice.

Do your ticker a favor and starting adding up what you eat in grams of salt and then deduct the excess for a healthy heart.
