April 25, 2011 Health Tip Of The Day

UNDERSTAND HOW CHLORIDE WORKS

Chloride is another electrolyte that works closely with potassium and sodium. Chloride also helps regulate body fluids in and out of body cells. Chloride joins sodium in surrounding the fluids outside the cells. This mineral is a component of stomach acid that helps with the digestion of food and the absorption of nutrients. Chloride also helps to transmit nerve impulses. As stated earlier, many salt substitiutes also contain chloride in the form of potassium chloride. Deficiencies are rare.

As Always, To Your Health!
