Too little salt in certain populations can also actually increase blood pressure as well as resting heart rate. In order to hydrate and nourish our cells, transmit nerve signals, contract our muscles, ensure proper digestion and breathing, and maintain proper heart function, we need salt.
In this book, a leading cardiovascular research scientist and doctor of pharmacy overturns conventional thinking about salt and explores the little-understood importance of it, the health dangers of having too little, and how salt can actually help you improve sports performance, crush sugar cravings, and stave off common chronic illnesses.

Good history of dietary guidelines for salt.
Why salt is very important and why we are told to eat too little of it. The most important part is the dangers of too l little salt and when we deplete the most salt and how to become in tune of how much our body needs. Worth a read.

Informative, surprising and backed by sciencw
"The Salt Fix" is as important to nutrition sanity as the top sellers of the genre, like Nina Teicholtz's "The Big Fat Surprise" and Gary Taube's "The Case Against Sugar", to name a couple. The author of "The Salt Fix" not only gives us a history lesson as to how we ended up with such low recommendations for salt intake, but also goes into exceptional detail regarding why we need salt to live, and live well. I've only just finished this book but I can already tell I'll be reading it many times over in the coming months and years, in the hopes of "absorbing" and integrating all the information and details into my daily life as well as the lives of my loved ones.
