Salt — NaCl — consists of sodium and chlorine. An excess of the former can Is Salt Bad for Your Health? / Cleveland Clinic can lead to high blood pressure, heart disease and strokes. WHO experts are confident Salt intake / WHO : if people eat less salt, they can save up to 2.5 million lives a year around the world. Therefore, experts recommend Salt intake / WHO do not consume more than one teaspoon of this product per day without a slide.

Yes, salt is extremely dangerous. But you should not completely abandon it. Nevertheless, it is one of the simplest and most accessible sources of sodium and chlorine, albeit not the only one. And without these elements, the body's cells will not be able to work properly.

Salt promotes electrolyte balance

The electrolyte balance is the ratio of sodium, chlorine, potassium and other substances. They are necessary I. Shrimanker, S. Bhattarai. Electrolytes / StatPearls for the normal functioning of cells and organs, including the heart, blood vessels, muscles, kidneys.

If you completely abandon sodium and chlorine, important processes will go wrong: regulation of fluid balance, transmission of nerve impulses, contraction and relaxation of muscles.

Due to sodium deficiency, a person will feel A. Kadri Balcı, O. Koksal, A. Kose, E. Armagan, F. Ozdemir, T. Inal, N. Oner. General characteristics of patients with electrolyte imbalance admitted to emergency department / World journal of emergency medicine nausea, cramps, muscle weakness. Low chlorine levels will result Electrolyte Imbalance / Cleveland Clinic to vomiting, swelling and feeling of constant fatigue. Children can A. Willoughby, H. A. Moss, V. S. Hubbard, B. B. Bercu, B. I. Graubard, P. M. Vietze, C. C. Chang, H. W. Berendes. Developmental outcome in children exposed to chloride‑deficient formula / American Academy of Pediatrics it is even worse to develop or slowly add to growth.

Regulates the fluid balance

The sodium contained in the salt helps to control the volume of the liquid. If the element is too small, problems will start. So, the skin will become dry, and the blood pressure will be J. Kojuri, R. Rahimi. Effect of «no added salt diet» on blood pressure control and 24 hour urinary sodium excretion in mild to moderate hypertension / BMC cardiovascular disorders falling, which can lead to fainting.

Participates in the transmission of nerve impulses

When one nerve cell needs to communicate with another, it opens special channels. These paths allow Pass the Salt: Sodium’s Role in Nerve Signaling and Stress on Blood Vessels / NIH sodium to get inside. Normally, an influx of the element causes the nerve cell to activate and a chain reaction occurs: the signal is transmitted from cell to cell and gradually reaches the brain. After that, the muscles perform the action.

If the sodium concentration is less than necessary, the signal will not pass or will pass weakly. Because of this, the ability of muscles to relax and contract will decrease and may Hyponatremia (low sodium level in the blood) / National Kidney Foundation seizures begin . And also problems with swallowing C. Giuliani, A. Peri. Effects of Hyponatremia on the Brain / Journal of clinical medicine , involuntary eye movements and tremors are uncontrollable tremors of different parts of the body.

Helps muscles contract and relax

Sodium helps T. Clausen. Na+-K+ pump regulation and skeletal muscle contractility / Physiological reviews muscles contract. The disadvantage of this element may be Hyponatremia / Cleveland Clinic cause tingling and spasms — sudden one-time painful muscle contractions.

Athletes and just active people should pay special attention E. Veniamakis, G. Kaplanis, P. Voulgaris, P. T. Nikolaidis. Effects of Sodium Intake on Health and Performance in Endurance and Ultra‑Endurance Sports / International journal of environmental research and public health how much salt they eat. The reason is that sodium and chlorine are excreted M. J. Turner, A. P. Avolio. Does Replacing Sodium Excreted in Sweat Attenuate the Health Benefits of Physical Activity? / International journal of sport nutrition and exercise metabolism out of the body along with sweat. Their deficiency can Convertino V. A., Armstrong L. E., Coyle E. F., Mack G. W., Sawka M. N., Senay L. C. Jr., Sherman W. M. ACSM Position Stand: Exercise and Fluid Replacement / American College of Sports Medicine lead to uncomfortable sensations in the muscles, slow recovery and prolonged pain after training , because without sodium, muscle fibers simply cannot S.
