You can exceed your daily sodium limit — without even reaching for the salt shaker! There are many hidden sources of salt in foods besides fatty snacks and fast food. According to the American Heart Association, you should be consuming no more than 2,400 mg of salt per day and no more than 1,500 mg if you already have high blood pressure. By reducing the amount of salt in your diet and carefully choosing your meals, you can greatly decrease the risk of heart disease and stroke. Be a conscious consumer and learn which foods are potential salt traps.
