Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt Contains Sodium (Na)

Sodium is essential for many processes within the body. It is an integral component of blood plasma and plays an important role in osmolality. That is, it helps to control when and how fluids cross the membranes of our cells.(1) While this may not seem important it is integral to life as we know it. Cellular fluid efflux and influx processes are essential for normal cellular activity and they are partially regulated by sodium. Sodium is used in every cell in the body chiefly as a key component of the sodium-potassium pump. This basic cellular mechanism maintains the correct ionic gradients within our cells.(2) Because the Western diet is rich in sodium, there is little chance of becoming deficient in this trace mineral.
