Sodium is critical element, as it helps in maintaining blood pressure, as well as normal functioning of muscles and nerves. Sodium holds water in the blood and high levels increases the blood volume thereby increasing the pressure. The human body regulates sodium level extremely carefully to maintain optimum levels, especially the kidneys. The kidneys sense the sodium level in the blood and whenever high level is found, kidneys eliminate it. And in case of low sodium levels, it retains it be reabsorbing the sodium from the blood that is initially filtered by the kidneys.
