I stopped the daily broth when I saw the msg in the ingredients - so now I started putting 1/4 tspn under my tongue with a 16oz water chaser. How many grams of sodium is that?

edit: ok, found this in the Phinney / Volek article:

.. 5 grams per day (3 grams in your food, 2 grams from broth/bouillon).

.. Salt and sodium are not the same.
1 teaspoon of salt = 5 grams of salt = 2.3 grams of sodium
(the rest is chloride)

How do you gals and guys get your 2 grams of salt a day? I'd like to be able to make bone broth and bottle / refrigerate them for daily doses, but that'll probably not happen.

Rosemary, yes, salt makes me retain water.

s93, I put salt on my food, and in my water, and in my tea.

Make one big pot full and use freezer ziplock bags to portion it up. I generally don't keep meat products for more than 3-4 days so freezing is the way to go!

New talk from Breckinridge.

Is salt reduction ‘the holy grail’ of preventing heart disease?

Sorry - I meant this video on salt - it only shows like a minute and then gets cut off.

What was the verdict on salt?

Although Phinney, Volek and Westman have long advocated adding salt to a Ketogenic Diet, this is the most through explanation I’ve seen.

Think you have "adrenal fatigue"?...you may be low on this one essential mineral.

Sodium, Nutritional Ketosis, and Adrenal Function

My canary in the coal mine is my abdominal muscles, they'll cramp with exertion if I'm not using enough half-salt. A bit under a teaspoon in some water, plus salting food to taste with half-salt, seems to do the trick. I also take magnesium, but it's the potassium salt that I notice when I forget.

That's interesting! I certainly do not pay enough attention to Potassium. Have the Half-Salt for an electrolyte drink, but like with many supplements, my use of it is hit or miss.
