DASH Diet Sodium Allowance

Your daily Dash Diet sodium allowance should be no more than 2300 milligrams per day for a standard diet, so if you are over that requirement slowly reduce the intake a little bit each day over a 2-3 week period so your taste buds will get use to less salt.

Ultimately you would like to be on 1500 milligram per day, this is a much safer level and this should be your goal.
