Sodium is present in almost everything you eat and drink. It may be present naturally in various foods or supplemented with many foods during production. The most common form of sodium that we consume in our daily lives is salt, 40% sodium and 60% chloride. People use it in both home and restaurant cooking as a flavouring ingredient.
For a long time, salt has been associated with hypertension, which causes damage to the blood vessels and arteries when persistently increased. As a result, your chance of developing cardiovascular disease, stroke, heart failure, and renal disease rises.
