Thank you for your kind words - they make my day! Excessive salt intake is not a good idea which is why the government is in the process of promulgating regulations to reduce the salt intake of the SA population. The most serious effects of high salt intakes are increase blood pressure (hypertension) and kidney disease. If you have very low bp, then you are probably not prone to this type of reaction to sodium. It is, however, always a good idea not to overdo anything. So try to reduce your salt and soldium intake by reducing how much you add to your food. Do this gradually so that you don't worsen your low bp, but try to get down to not exceeding about 1,5 gram per day.
