is important.

How Much Salt Do You Need to Survive?
By Brandon Specktor

Salt: It's 40 percent sodium, 60 percent chlorine and 100 percent delicious.

The constantly-debated question: How much salt do you actually need to be healthy? On one hand, your body needs the nutrients in salt to survive particularly sodium.
"Sodium is the most important extracellular electrolyte," Dr. Paul Whelton, a professor of global public health at Tulane University, told Live Science. "It plays a role in many, many health functions."

Electrolytes are tiny substances that dissolve in water to create positively- and negatively-charged ions that conduct electricity. A proper balance of these charges inside and outside of your cells is crucial to regulating many bodily functions, including hydration, blood pressure, and proper functioning of nerves and muscles.
