You have to use in context and the app dictates that. Lenore makes awesome points about sodium and potassium shortage and overage. That's why the app is si important it tracks that along with calcium and iron which can be overdone or have a shortage of. Coconut water for the beach and warm weather physical activity can help balance things out it is a source of potassium, calcium and magnesium and can help balance out your daily intake and situational needs.

So I can buy coconut water to drink? I know that sounds dumb! I just never searched for it. I thought it was something to use to substitute as an ingredient when cooking, lol.

I will definitely look for it at the grocery store!

Sodium and salt are not the same thing. You can find out about the difference in nutrition books. The balance of sodium and potassium is very important, so we shouldn't think in terms of avoidance but in terms of balance.

Oh yeah, we get at Costco and Amazon. I have standard shipping monthly with Amazon and keep at both places and in car etc. Lenore highlighted some of the reasons why.

Men as they age really need to pay attention to all of this and probably should still subscribe to or read Men's Health on occasion. Many of the thoughts shared here can have beneficial outcomes for men.

Funny you should say that. We got the Kirkland Organic No Salt Seasoning a few months ago and had some mild reactions after using it a few times. Went back to our regular spices and haven't had those reactions since.

Funny to remember that when we were kids mom would give us salt tablets when we'd travel in hot, desert areas during the summer. How times have changed.

Salt tablets were a daily football regimen in warm weather.

^^^ It's things like this that make me take whatever the latest health trends may be with a grain of salt. Some of it may turn out to be good advice, other things will be debunked, and a few may even turn out to be bad for you. So, I sort of listen to the latest bits of wisdom but don't take it too much to heart. FWIW I seem to be pretty healthy just following my own common sense.
