Conventional Sodium Advice WRONG, Large Study Confirms


The researchers found that consuming less than 3,000 milligrams of sodium per day was associated with a 27 percent increase in cardiovascular disease and death.

Consuming between 3,000 milligrams and 6,000 milligrams of sodium each day was found to be associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease and death.

Consuming more than 6,000 milligrams per day was associated with a 15 percent increase in cardiovascular disease and mortality.

Remember that current guidelines have been limiting sodium consumption to 1,500 milligrams for those over 50, and less than 2,300 milligrams for those 50 or younger.
