Salt Intake Requirement

Salt Intake Requirement: Overview

When drinking lots of water throughout the day, salts (especially sodium) are washed through the kidneys and voided.  Increasing salt in the diet helps prevent any imbalance as a result of significant water consumption and low salt intake.  For every two quarts of water consumed per day consider adding 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
