And also people’s blood contains 0.9% of salt.
As such, human body embodies the sea from which
all life forms on earth were born.
And all the living creatures dwelling away from
the sea need salt for their daily activities,
and it is crucial for them to consume salt concentrated
from the sea water.
There are ample marine minerals
contained in natural salt in particular
and these minerals control metabolism of various
kind and play an important role in maintaining life.
The salt produced from the sea is both the origin
and the repository of life.

We will be able to live young and healthy
if we stick to the basics.
Ringer's solutiont and sal
Old literatures say that King
Sejong enjoyed salted soup made by adding bay salt
whenever he felt weak. In modern terms, it is like
taking saline solution. Bay salt is rich in minerals
essential to the human body, and can help promote
metabolism. For such reason, salt was frequently used
in the past as medicine during emergencies.
What we know as the Ringer's solution is saline solution
added with 0.03% of potassium chloride and 0.033%
of calcium chloride, while saline solution is 100mℓ
of distilled water with 0.9g of sodium chloride. Saline
solution is transparent and colorless, and has osmotic
pressure same with serum. When injected to the human
body, it supplements water loss caused by infectious
diseases, poisoning etc, and also promotes the restoration
of blood pressure and discharge of toxins.
Meanwhile, glucose solution is made by adding 0.1%
of glucose to Ringer's solution, so that the components
of the solution will be close to those of blood. As
shown above, salt is used significantly in areas closely
related to our everyday lives.
