Salt is vital for humans and animals !!!

We need salt for our water balance and metabolism, but also for our muscles and nerves to function.Our body cannot produce salt itself, so we have to eat or drink it. Many diets advertise rapid weight loss by prescribing a completely salt-free diet. This is absolute nonsense, because the "success" of the diet is based on a lack of water. If our organism is permanently supplied with too little salt, acid is produced in some cells, which damages the DNA structure and can have further consequences.

Water and salt also play an important role in asthma and allergies. Both foods reduce the release of the neurotransmitter histamine, which is thought to be responsible for most allergic reactions.Salt is a natural antihistamine and is needed in the lungs to keep the air passages moist and loosen mucus.

Why was salt weighed out with gold in all desert regions?

Salt is still traded today, almost as it was a thousand years ago. However, you no longer get gold for it.
