excuse me. I am 23 years old, I am very fond of fitness, especially lifting weights and thank God, now I have got a muscular body according to my dreams, I have never taken supplements or injecting steroids both so far. I only consume all-natural foods such as egg whites and bananas, for example, but a few days ago I found an article that said that egg whites contain a lot of “sodium” substances. and as far as I know that the content of “sodium” is harmful to heart health and can trigger an increase in blood pressure, is that true? It’s also coincidental that lately I’ve often heard news that many senior weight lifters and bodybuilders have heart disease, I’m just afraid that someday the same thing will happen because of consuming egg whites too often, please enlighten me, thank youu003cbru003eu003cbru003e

Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. There is sodium in eggs. And indeed sodium can trigger an increase in blood pressure, and can also lead to heart problems. However, you should also know that even without eating eggs, there is a certain amount of sodium in our bodies, and in other foods we eat. Sodium is simply salt.

Our bodies have kidneys that function to regulate sodium levels. There are even special hormones in the body that regulate sodium levels in the body to remain within normal levels. In some people whose kidneys have been damaged, or have a history of high blood pressure, sodium consumption is limited, because the body can no longer balance it. But sodium does not necessarily cause all these diseases when consumed in normal levels, and sodium in eggs is not much. The usual concern in egg consumption is the cholesterol obtained from egg yolks.

So you can continue the diet that you have been living so far by consuming egg whites. We just want to add that the best way to consume egg whites is to stick to boiling or cooking them first, not eating them raw because there are certain ingredients in eggs that prevent you from getting all the benefits if they are not heated to a certain temperature. So, hopefully useful.
