importance of salt for human body

Salt plays a significant role in human life, and its history is absolutely connected with that of human being since it is essential for human survival. The first simple microorganisms were developed in the sea and depended solely on seawater, which provided them with the nutrients and oxygen they needed.

The fetus grows inside a liquid which contains salt. Breast milk, heart, arteries, veins and our own blood also contain salt. During pregnancy,  the woman's needs in sodium are increased  due to the  increase in blood volume.

Thus, although doctors previously recommended reducing the amount of salt to avoid the danger of swelling, now the view has been revised and salt is necessary in pregnant woman's diet.

The relation between salt and hypertension is also under discussion today. Studies carried out show a small increase in blood pressure within the limits of statistic error. Besides, the main cause for hypertension is our bad eating habits.

Even research has now  turned to the other salt component, chlorine, since, so far the criminalization of sodium has led doctors to the wrong paths and to hysterical prohibitions towards those who suffer from hypertension. What is particularly important is the balance of potassium and sodium.

Sodium and potassium function as electrolytes in the body (potassium inside cells and sodium in blood and tissues). Natural foods without salt contain enough potassium, so a small quantity of salt strengthens the presence of sodium and contributes to the  desired balance. In the model of natural diet, salt consumption is actually imposed.

Particular attention is needed when it comes to prepared foods with preservatives (sausages, cans, processed food) which contain enough salt. Athletes should also consume significant quantities of salt after intense physical activity.

The fluid loss is high (often around 2 liters per hour of exercise), thus the loss of sodium should be balanced by increasing salt in the diet and water consumption. Nevertheless what is important to realize is that there are no rules applying to everyone regarding the use of salt and it is risky to give general instructions especially to hypertensive and nephritic patients.


The benefits of salt for our organism

Correct amount of salt in our body :

- helps in the multiplication of red blood cells
- helps in the prevention of constipation
- facilitates digestion
- contributes to gastric fluids secretion
- contributes to appropriate support and balance of adrenal gland
- strengthens and balance of thyroid
- sodium and water help maintain the health of our nervous system
- helps all cells to eliminate toxins
- sodium helps adrenal gland to maintain normal blood pressure in our body reduces swelling
