What is the recommended amount of sodium to consume in one day?
This depends on your current health as far as blood pressure, heart condition, and kidney condition. The FDA recommends 2400 mg a day max but I personally probably consume around 7000-8000 mg of sodium per day. I don't see this as a problem for me given that i have normal blood pressure and a healthy heart/kidneys. I drink around 2.5-3 gallons of water per day in order to stay healthy in general but also to ensure that my kidneys are flushing the extra sodium out of my body.
But as always, and especially with this topic, consult a physician before altering your diet.
