Event Details

What's in a number?

The average American consumes 3,400 mg per day. Do you know how to reduce your intake?


Join the American Heart Association, Million Hearts and The Heart Truth in a Twitter chat about sodium and the effects it can have on your
heart. It is estimated that if Americans cut their average sodium intake by more than half - to about 1,500 milligrams a day - there would be a nearly 26 percent decrease in high blood pressure.  Even reducing to 2300mg would result in improvements in blood pressure.

 

We know sodium is an acquired taste. As you take steps to reduce sodium, you'll actually start to appreciate foods for their true flavor. In time, you'l look forward to how food really tastes - not just the salty flavor.
