Do I have to avoid sodium?
Posted by Stephan Mackenzie on 22 April 2011 11:18 AM
Your body needs approximately 3-5 times more potassium than sodium. However, most Americans ingest approximately 3-5 times more sodium than potassium because of the typical diet of highly processed, high-sodium, fast foods. Sodium causes retention of fluids in the body and increases blood pressure. There is no need to add sodium to any food-there is more than enough occurring naturally in food. You should avoid adding salt to food, and eliminate all processed foods.
