What it is

Sodium is a tiny particle that our bodies need to stay healthy. It comes from salt, which is found in many foods we eat. Sodium belongs to a big family of nutrients called minerals, which are like the building blocks that help our bodies work properly. Other members of this nutrient family include calcium, iron, and potassium. Sodium helps make our food taste good and adds flavour to what we eat.

Health Benefits

Sodium is like a superhero for your body! It helps control the balance of fluids, which keeps our muscles and nerves working properly. When we have enough sodium, it can help prevent muscle cramps and keep us feeling energised.



In terms of health benefits, having the right amount of sodium in our bodies can support healthy blood pressure levels. This means that it's good for our heart and overall cardiovascular system. Sodium also plays a role in maintaining proper kidney function by helping to regulate fluid levels.



If you don't get enough sodium or have too much of it, problems can arise. Too little sodium may lead to symptoms like fatigue or headaches while too much could contribute to high blood pressure or even increase the risk of stroke.



So remember, just like Goldilocks finding the perfect porridge - not too hot, not too cold - we need just the right amount of sodium for our bodies to work their best!
