Sodium in the diet

Sodium is present in almost all foods and drinks.

Sodium is also an important component of table salt (sodium chloride), which is often added to the diet during meal preparation or at the table.

Lack of sodium

A deficiency of sodium occurs rarely as this mineral is present in almost all foods. In the case of prolonged sweating, for example in professional athletes, a deficiency of sodium may occur.

Excess sodium

Too much sodium is bad for the kidneys and heart. In fact, it increases blood pressure and risk of cardiovascular disease.
