    I been eating clean for a while now. But I noticed I use about 2 teaspoons of franks hot sauce with my tuna each time. I use it with my chicken , etc.

    So I probally use about 6 tea spoons a day. I read the container and its 200mg's of sodium per teaspoon. So im bringing in 1200 mg's of sodium from that a day. How much is too much?? That seems kinda high.

    1.2 g's of sodium is not high in itself, but quite a bit just for a condiment

    Who cares? What is your total sodium intake?

    It doesn't really matter anyway, so long as you have no pre-existing conditions that would be effected (ie worsened) by a high sodium intake.

    B12 is usually from red meat.

    I don't eat any red meat, just eggs, tuna, nuts, and whey for protein.

    I cringe to think how much sodium I must take in on a daily basis. I am not too worried about it now (only 21) but since heart problems run in the family, I will probably start to monitor sodium intakes ~ age 35.

    i've heard if you do enough hammer curls per day it really doesn't matter how much sodium you intake because the hammer curls really set it off and the growing of your biceps really need the sodium anyways.

    Ive taken 9999% of RDA of B12 in a day before, and for cyanide treatment they give well over close to a million percent.
