SODIUM FOR PILATES

1. CIRCULATORY SYSTEM

Sodium is required for normal blood pressure and consistent levels. It is vital for keeping other minerals soluble within the bloodstream and for prevention of hardened arteries. Natural sodium (sodium phosphate and sodium sulphate) as obtained from foods is balanced to provide a stable

pressure within individual cells. Common table salt (sodium chloride) retains excess fluids at a rate of approx.1g of salt to 70g of water, thereby increasing body weight. The sodium/potassium balance is the main factor in the control of the body’s fluid balance. Table salt is concentrated sodium without the essential balance of potassium to ensure correct cell pressure. It is advised to restrict adding salt to meals, avoid salty processed foods and to increase the intake of potassium-rich foods. The excess use of salt has led to an increase in blood pressure and research has confirmed the direct link between salt and the risk of hypertension.

2. DIGESTIVE SYSTEM

Sodium is required for the production of saliva, which is required for the initial digestion of carbohydrate foods. Natural sodium provides an alkaline balance to the entire body, preventing disorders such as arthritis, ulcers and stomach acidity.

9. BLOOD SYSTEM

Natural sodium promotes normal blood pressure and protects against blood clots and thickening of the blood.

14. JOINT SYSTEM

Sodium preserves flexibility of joints and promotes movement of muscles. It keeps blood minerals soluble and protects against arthritis. Celery is the ultimate natural sodium food, apart from kelp, and it is well balanced with potassium, to provide the balance.
