Sodium recommended daily

An amount of about 500 mg a day is considered adequate to maintain the body's salt concentration. Intake should be no more than 2.4 g of sodium per day which is the amount found in around one teaspoon of salt.

Those who eat few processed foods are probably getting around 1.2 g of sodium in food, leaving around half a teaspoon to be added to stay within recommended limits. Athletes and those who perspire a great deal may need more. The average daily intake of sodium in the USA is about 3 to 6 g with one-third to one-half of this being made up from table salt.

Sodium recommended dailyPregnant women may need to consume 2 to 3 g of sodium per day. This amount should be available from a varied diet of wholesome, minimally processed foods with no salt added during cooking. In Australia, the recommended intake is 920 to 2300 mg per day.
