The current recommended daily intake for salt in the UK is 6g. The actual average daily intake in the UK is much higher at around 8.4g per day. Overwhelmingly, the evidence supports the fact that despite sodium being an essential mineral, our current high intakes of salt are not necessary and for some, may increase the risk of high blood pressure (hypertension) and many other non-communicable diseases including cardiovascular disease, stroke, osteoporosis, stomach cancer and kidney disease. www.actiononsalt.org.uk.
Salt is composed of sodium and chloride and it is the sodium part that can cause the high blood pressure issues if eaten to excess. Healthy diets should contain no more than 6g salt a day which contains approximately 2.4g of sodium.
