Our expert says:
If you drink a lot of water this washes important minerals like sodium (found in table salt) and potassium out of the body and can cause so-called electrolyte imbalances. Your body reacts by craving salt to replenish the last sodium. Adults only require 2,5 litres of LIQUID a day, so don't overdo you water intake - 2-3 cups a day is more than enough if you are also drinking other liquids. It is also not a good idea to eat masses of sodium as this can harm the kidneys and increase blood pressure. You can increase your salt intake moderately because of your low blood pressure, but please do every thing in moderation, including drinking water.
