Importance of Ions in the Human Body
Essential Ions in the Human Body
Sodium (Na+)
Regulates The Amount of water (H20) in the body
Sodium moves in and out of cells, this is critical in sending electrical signals for the brain, nervious system, and muscles
Potassium (K+)
Potassiums Function regulates heartbeat, reduces blood pressure, and used in protein synthesis
Maintains fluid and acid balance needed in muscles.
Helps lungs eliminate carbon dioxide.
Cation is pumped into cells while sodium (Na) is pumped out
conducting electrical impulses to tell muscles to move.
Magnesium (Mg+2)
helps Regulate blood pressure
Helps formation of bones, teeth and assists in the process of fats and proteins also helps secrete Parathyroid hormones
