Sodium In Natural Foods

The sodium content of fresh, whole foods is naturally very low.  Not only are they low in sodium, they are also high in potassium to help maintain that delicate sodium/potassium balance.  This balance helps regulate our cellular metabolism, and prevents water retention in our cells that damages the fibrous mesh of the skin and contributes to the development of cellulite.
