Bodybuilding and Salt: How Much Salt Per Day is Okay?

Is Salt or Sodium Bad?

Salt nervousness started in the early 1900s, when French doctors described that six of their hypertension patients also used a high-salt diet.

New research shows that this basic compound is probably not as unsafe as formerly considered.

Furthermore, research released in 2015 identified that a lower intake of sodium may basically be linked to a higher risk of death from cardiovascular disease.

We also understand that consuming not enough sodium can raise the risk of different types of condition and problems, such as…

Type II diabetes
Higher levels of LDL (“bad”) cholesterol and triglycerides
Increased levels of insulin resistance

And if we talk about sodium intake and health, we need to focus on potassium also because research reveals the ratio of sodium to potassium consumption is extremely important.

Obviously, the ideal sources of potassium are the kinds of foods lots of people stay away from, vegetables and fruit.
