I didn't know there were different versions. How can you tell which are which? I'm not really satisfied with what I can get easily. It's Spring Valley, timed release 1000 mg.

Salt / Sodium isn't bad unless in excess or if your body can't process / absorb it properly.

On the contrary, the original poster was directed to talk to a dietician by a practicing RN, since then it's just been chatter about how salt/sodium effects all of us.

And I did but didn't get a real firm answer. She recommended that I still calculate what the original liquid contained and record that as different meats and foods absorb differently. It wasn't long after my original post, though, that the situation changed. Still good information though.

Not sure whether you have them over there but we have products such as Lo-Salt which is based on potassium rather than sodium. Might be worth hunting them out (but ask the doctor first).

Just checked Lo-salt is available in USA but there may be other similar products.

Something a lot of people overlook when trying to cut down on sodium is bottled mineral water. Check the analyses of the brands first if buying it
