Depending on how much water you drink, that either is or isn't a lot of salt. If you only drink 1000 ml, you're getting 1 teaspoon of salt, so okay. Not enough water, IMO, but that's another issue. However, my mind boggled when I thought about 1/2 teaspoon per 500 ml for the 4000 ml of water I drink a day. 4 teaspoons of salt! For a brief time I once did 3 teaspoons, but paid for it. Thought I'd never stop being thirsty :) Dr. Batmanji's original formula was about 1/4 teaspoon per liter, give or take personal needs. There are as many formulas as there are people.
