Agree that this article could have been more informative. A quick search on google shows tons of articles on this very question, many by government health organizations.

A crucial piece of information that was missing is that sodium is the component of salt that can cause adverse health effects (though is also a crucial electrolyte). As Vitor points out, 1500 mg is recommended if:
- you are 51 years of age or older
- you are African American
- you have high blood pressure
- you have diabetes
- you have chronic kidney disease
Otherwise, 2300 mg is advised.

I like Pacific Natural Foods's organic, unsweetened almond milk in the Original and Vanilla flavors. A cup of Original only has 35 calories. It is not as easy to find in grocery stores as Almond Breeze, but I prefer it. The box has a screw top, rather than the push-up top on Almond Breeze, which has come in handy to prevent spills more than once. One thing to keep in mind is that almond milk does not contain calcium, so if you are substituting it for dairy milk, you will need to get your calcium from another source.
