How to add sodium to diet in a healthy way?

I am taking a medication that causes muscle spasms if you do not have a high enough sodium intake, I already use plenty of salt when cooking and eat enough junk food. I was wondering if there was a more healthy way to add some more sodium to my diet.

If you want to do it in a scientific manner, first of all you need to know the daily sodium intake level you need to maintain to avoid the muscle spasms. Next, you need to do a tally of all the sodium in prepared foods that you eat (should be on the labels) and the sodium content of the salt you add in your cooking (i.e., how many milligrams of sodium are in, say, 1/4 teaspoon of common salt). Then it's a matter of working out the total on a daily basis to be certain you get enough but not too much.

"WHERE" was Sodium first discovered?!?

I've looked everywhere and all the questions just state that it was discovered in 1807 by Sir Humphry Davy! I need to know "WHERE" it was discovered. Please help!

Sodium was discovered by Sir Humphrey Davy at 1807 in England. Origin of name: from the English word "soda" (the origin of the symbol Na comes from the Latin word "natrium").
Sodium was first isolated in 1807 by Sir Humphry Davy, who made it by the electrolysis of very dry molten sodium hydroxide, NaOH. Sodium collected at the cathode. Davy isolated potassium by a similar procedure, also in 1807. Shortly after, Thenard and Gay-Lussac isolated sodium by reducing sodium hydroxide with iron metal at high temperatures.

I hope this is helpful.

What is the name of pure Sodium and where can i purchase it?

I am wondering when typing into a website like ebay what should a type to get pure sodium what name is for it and is it possible to purchase it on on ebay??? Or any other websites I can buy it from?


It is hazardous to use, I would recommend against purchasing it. On contact with moisture, sodium becomes sodium hydroxide. It can also explode in water and combust in oxygen.
