IN THE BODY
Sodium, like Potassium, is one of the easier minerals for the
body to absorb.
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.
Cheese, butter and pre packaged processed meat are all food
that contain a high level of Sodium.
- Women and men 920 - 2300 mg
- During pregnancy 0mg
- During lactation 0mg
Taking too much Sodium can lead to high blood pressure,
osteoporosis, asthma and stone in your urine.
Once in the body, Sodium mixes frequently with Calcium,
Potassium, Chloride and Magnesium.
There is no real use for Sodium in the human diet. It is all for taste!
