The mineral salts of sodium have many different functions in the body. The body cannot produce sodium itself. For this reason, the intake of sodium through food, high quality food supplements or medicines is of essential importance in order to prevent any deficiency and associated disturbances in growth. The German Nutrition Society (DGE) recommends a sodium intake of 550 mg per day for adolescents and adults1.
Sodium is involved in the cellular transport process. It is essential for the transmission to nerve and muscle cells and hence for the stimulus transport.
Sodium can be administered in the form of tablets, effervescent tablets, drinking granules, direct granules, powders, capsules, coated tablets and injection solutions.
Our products are in conformity with the standard pharmacopeias (EP, USP, DAB, DAC) and/or the conditions imposed by food law (E number, FCC) and are available in different grades, particle size distributions and bulk weights.
