What is the daily sodium intake?

2500mg/ day. Well, sodium intake is in the news quite a bit lately and the current consensus is somewhere around 2500mg/day...But I can tell you that many of us far exceed that limit too often...Canned food is a huge problem...I.E a tiny 11.5oz can of campbell bean/bacon soup contains 860mg of sodium. Thus 4 of these babies already exceeds that limit. Eat well, stay healthy... Good luck.

High sodium intake. Patients who ingest a high sodium (na) diet run the risk of developing hypertension due to the retention of water caused by a high na intake. You are 36 years old and may not have high blood pressure (hbp). See your diet to get a diet that is not na rich and you may be able to delay your entry into a hypertensive state. If you need flavoring for your diet, try onion or garlic powder or pepper.
