Sodium (Na, atomic number 11) is an alkali metal that exists in living systems as Na+ ions. In physiology, it regulates blood volume, blood pressure, osmotic equilibrium and cellular pH. Sodium is transported though membranes to and from the extracellular fluid via sodium channels and the sodium–potassium pump.
