eCureMe’s Healthy Living
SODIUM


THE BREAKDOWN
  • Produces energy in the body
  • Produces acid in the stomach
  • Transmits nerve impulses
  • Allows for muscle flexibility
  • Balances the acid and alkali levels


IN THE BODY
Sodium, like Potassium, is one of the easier minerals for the body to absorb.


WITHDRAWALS
The body does not really suffer from a lack of Sodium. The problems usually occur when too much is taken. If you are working outside, the sweat may cause you to loose Sodium.


NATURAL FORMS
Cheese, butter and pre packaged processed meat are all food that contain a high level of Sodium.


DAILY DOSE
  • Women and men 920 - 2300 mg
  • During pregnancy 0mg
  • During lactation 0mg


OVER DOSAGE
Taking too much Sodium can lead to high blood pressure, osteoporosis, asthma and stone in your urine.


AGENTS
Once in the body, Sodium mixes frequently with Calcium, Potassium, Chloride and Magnesium.


SUPPLEMENTS
There is no real use for Sodium in the human diet. It is all for taste!
