You’ve probably all heard of the suggestion that Americans should cut back on their sodium intake. It is estimated that the average American consumes 3,700 mgs of sodium daily. The recommended intake is far lower, some 2,300 mgs daily. Some have even gone further like the American Heart Association, and suggested that the line be drawn at 1500 mg. The question that needs to be asked here is does the lowering of sodium intake really get us any healthier? The answer is sometimes yes and sometimes no.
