Sodium is the major positively charged ion in blood and body fluids. The average adult body contains about 90 g of sodium. More than half of this is in the fluids that bathe the cells, about one-third is in the bones, enmeshed in the crystals of insoluble bone minerals, and some is retained within the cells.
