Sodium 10 mg
The US sodium RDA 2400 mg. bHIP Energy Drink has a very low level of sodium.
consume far too much sodium, putting them at risk for high blood
pressure, heart disease, and stroke. Sodium is used to regulate blood
volume and blood pressure. Sodium aids in the transmission of nerve
impulses and is used to help regulate the acid/base balance in the
body. Common signs of excess sodium include high blood pressure, fluid
retention, and swelling.
About 11 percent of the sodium in the average
U.S. diet comes from adding salt or other sodium-containing condiments
to foods while cooking or eating. But the majority of the sodium — 77
percent — comes from eating prepared or processed foods that contain
the mineral. So even though you may limit the amount of salt you add to
food, the food itself may already be high in sodium.
A lower sodium intake has a beneficial effect on blood pressure.
you are older than 50, are black, or have a health condition such as
high blood pressure, chronic kidney disease, or diabetes, you may be
more sensitive to the blood pressure raising effects of sodium. As a
result, aim for a sodium intake at the low end of the range recommended
for healthy adults.
