I would NEVER eat more than 2000 milligrams (2 grams) of salt, per day, in order to raise blood pressure, and actually think that the target should be 1500 milligrams for most people.
There are two main reasons for low blood pressure, IMHO.
- A person has health problems and an unhealthy metabolism.
Usually as a result of a poor, unbalanced diet, consisting of too many carb, protein, fat and alcohol calories.
- A person has very good health and a healthy metabolism.
Usually as a result of a balanced diet, consisting of healthy levels of carbs, proteins and fat calories.
A person who has health problems will just make their health problems worse by increasing the salt in their diet to an unhealthy level.
A person who has very good health will harm their health by increasing the salt in their diet to an unhealthy level.
My blood pressure ranges from around 95/50 in the morning to around 130/80 at mid-day, to around 115/65 in the evening, which I consider to be very healthy daily blood pressure trends. But, IMHO, my lower bp morning readings are due to having a very healthy metabolism, which, in turn, allows me to survive and improve from heart failure, persistent Atrial Fibrillation, Insulin Resistance/Pre-Diabetes, Kidney Dysfunction, etc., with a reasonably good quality of life.
