RDA levels vs. WHO vs. Nutrient Balance - potassium, calcium
RDA potassium 4700mg a day, WHO 3500 mg a day ..... Is this because in the US salt intake is so high. I rarely make 4700 but 3500 is very doable without supplementing. My potassium-sodium nutrient balance on Cronometer is usually to the right as I eat few processed foods and a lot of veggies.
RDA Calcium (senior) 1200mg vs WHO 500-700. Once again I find getting 500-700 from food doable but the 1200 requires supplements and, honestly, based on various articles I gather there is not a lot of science behind the 1200. I gave up on it because I saw an increase in BP and Horrific consiption no matter what form of calcium I took. The Calcium Magnesium balance in the meters you get with a gold subscription is usually right in the dark green.
So, how do other people feel about or know about these various values. I know from looking at dog food stuff that values were determined based on a grain based diet for dogs and grains impact mineral absorbtion etc. Where did the RDA values come from? How about the WHO values? How about Cronometer "balance"
Just things I am thinking about. FWIW I do supplement Magnesium. Most soils are very depleted in this one. Don't go overboard but do use it.
