    Man this bots are now being paid by big-salt corp

    Those trials seemed to focus on lower systolic numbers. Shouldn’t we be more concerned about diastolic? Is there clinical evidence that shows that reducing sodium intake affects diastolic?

    I have been mixing potassium chloride with regular table salt for a couple years now and it works well

  • @paulcohen6727 says:

    Or, you could just not use salt at all.

    Reducing salt over time reduces cravings for salt, gets easier to stay away from it 👍

    Salt is my biggest weakness ❤

    So do we try to get it down to 750mg or 1500? I thought Dr. Greger suggested 1500mg before.

    • @ninjaturtles12121 says:

      1500 is his recommendation for compliance sake. He personally in his personal diet goes lower. But if you are consistently staying at 1500 n have no heart issues you are good!

  • @jagsterr1 says:

    Keto people are consuming a LOT of salt – what happens to them?

  • @ninjaturtles12121 says:

    What is everybody’s fav salt substitute??? Please help me out. Im sincerely going to try to get to 1500 this year
