Celebrate World Salt Awareness Week
March 5, 2018
World Salt Awareness Week is being celebrated this year from March 12th - 18th and is the perfect opportunity to recognize all the many benefits of salt. Salt, or sodium chloride, is essential for life. In fact, no mineral is more essential to human survival than sodium because it allows nerves to send and receive electrical impulses, helps your muscles stay strong, and keeps your cells and brain functioning. However, sodium chloride (salt) is a nutrient that the body cannot produce, and therefore it must be consumed.
The Salt Institute has created a micro-website to promote this event at http://worldsaltawarenessweek.org/
