Salt & Nutrition
I wish I could share that. I wish that you, for even one moment, could experience the transformational, life-giving power of this unique salt.
I am extremely pleased to be able to offer you what I consider to be the healthiest salt on the planet. You won't find better quality anywhere. It's time for a Change!
Sileo Natural salt crystal is comprised mainly of the two elements, sodium and chloride, as well as 82 other stable minerals.
Chloride is a chemical the human body needs for metabolism (the process of turning food into energy). It also helps keep the body's acid-base balance. The amount of chloride in the blood is carefully controlled by the kidneys. Chloride ions have important physiological roles. For instance, in the central nervous system, the inhibitory action of glycine and some of the action of GABA relies on the entry of Cl− into specific neurons.
Also, the chloride-bicarbonate exchanger biological transport protein relies on the chloride ion to increase the blood's capacity of carbon dioxide, in the form of the bicarbonate ion.
Sodium ions (often referred to as just "sodium") are necessary for regulation of blood and body fluids, transmission of nerve impulses, heart activity, and certain metabolic functions. Interestingly, although sodium is needed by animals which maintain a high blood sodium concentration and extracellular fluid sodium concentration, the ion is not needed by plants, and is generally phytotoxic. A completely plant-based diet, therefore, will be very low in sodium.
This requires some herbivores to obtain their sodium from salt licks and other mineral sources. The animal need for sodium is probably the reason for the highly-conserved ability to taste the sodium ion as "salty."
