Sodium Risks for Bones

Not only can all that sodium leave you bloated, a new study shows it also may be eating away at your bones.

The study shows that high salt intake is linked to an increased level of urinary calcium, meaning the more salt you eat, the more calcium leaves your body. And experts say that’s bad for your bones.

The more calcium you drain from your body, the less there will be available for bones to utilize in the continual process of rebuilding new bone cells, something that takes place in the body throughout your lifetime.

Fortunately, research also shows that increasing your intake of the mineral potassium – abundant in fruits and vegetables – might help offset that risk.
