Sodium

Sodium

Sodium in the form of salt (sodium chloride) was formerly a scarce and highly valued raw material. Today, salt is available cheaply and in huge quantities, and is commonly used as table salt and in processed foods. Often, salt is consumed in considerably excessive quantities, leading to a range of potential health complications. The German Nutrition Society (DGE) recommends a salt intake of 5-6 g per day, however in practise around double that amount is consumed by Western Europeans. Sodium does therefore not play a role in orthomolecular medicine or as a dietary supplement.
