It is well known that consuming too much sodium increase the risk of chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart problems. Too much salt kills the calcium in your body which can lead to bone fractures. The recommended daily sodium intake for adults is 2,300 mg – less than one teaspoon. Check the label of whatever you eat during the day and you’ll find that you’re most likely consuming more than that. Remove read-made sauces and processed foods form your diet as much as possible.
