How much salt is necessary for optimal health?

Some, even some nutritionists, recommend that we consume no salt at all, as they claim the if

we eat fresh and organic fruits and vegetable and enough of them then we will have all the sodium that we need. On the other hand, some doctors and health organizations advise that we consume the right amount of salt daily.

What is the right amount?

Health Canada recommends that adults do not exceed 2,300 mg of sodium per day. (http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/hl-vs/iyh-vsv/food-aliment/sodium-eng.php)

1 teaspoonful contains about 6 grams of salt and 6 grams of salt contains about 2400 mg of sodium. Most people get a lot more salt than is recommended and so


all are cautioned not use more than recommended as it may cause a health hazard.

I found some other interesting information:

Some feel that unrefined sea salt is the best salt to use and that makes a lot of sense to me.

Some feel that we won’t be healthy without consuming the recommended amount of salt.

I found this Bible verse interesting. Colossians 4:6 (New International Version) "Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone."

Some caution watching carefully our salt consumption as many food that are pre-prepared and processed contain way too much salt. So we should read labels carefully so that we don’t go beyond d the recommended amount.
