The Salt is a crystalline and ordinarily white substance , soluble in water and crackling in the fire . Its about sodium chloride , which can be found in seawater or in some solid masses. Salt is used as seasoning (to season meals) and for the preservation of meats.
For example: "Please pass me the salt", “This soup is very rich, although it needs a little salt”, "The doctor told me that I do not have to abuse salt, since excessive consumption brings pressure problems", “My daughter complained because, after entering the sea, salt tasted in her mouth”.
There are many different types of salts. Thus, for example, is the common salt, which is the one used regularly in kitchens to be able to give a different and tasty touch to any dish. And then there is also sea salt, which is one that is obtained directly from the seas.
In addition to all of the above, it should be stressed that in recent decades the salts used to take a bath have become fashionable. These are substances that are thrown into the water and whose clear function is to allow the person who enjoys it to relax, de-stress and take care of their skin at the same time.
Among the most recommended salts to achieve that aforementioned relaxation are rock salts such as that of the Himalayas or the Andean. They enhance their functions if they are also accompanied by other products such as jasmine oil.
Another type of salt is known as the salt flower, which is the type of red foam that generates the salt and then is subsequently used with different uses within the field of medicine.
The Mineral salts they are those inorganic molecules that, in living beings, can be found precipitated or dissolved. Being in the water, these salts appear ionized. Different specific ions make the salts fulfill various structural functions in the body , such as pH regulation or the impulse of biochemical reactions.
In living beings, therefore, salts may appear precipitated, which means that they constitute solid structures. That is the case of silicates (like the bra in some vegetables), the calcium phosphate (which makes up the skeleton of vertebrates) and the calcium carbonate (used in arthropod shells).
Dissolved salts, meanwhile, are in the water and allow you to control muscle contraction and intervene in osmotic balance, for example.
Another possibility is that salts appear associated with organic molecules, as is the case with phospholipids , the phosphoglycerides and the phosphoproteins .
Nor can we forget that there are various expressions that use the term salt and that we use frequently in our colloquial language. Among them they would highlight "put salt in the mill". This is used to say that someone has been scared because he needs some judgment and rationality.
