As you probably know, all animals require some salt to survive. Humans consume foods that naturally contain salt (like meat and seafood) or add salt as a seasoning.
However, some terrestrial animals have diets deficient in salt. These animals must seek supplemental salt sources. Some animals such as horses and cattle require access to salt blocks to keep healthy. Wild mammals and birds are known to aggregate at natural mineral deposits known as salt licks where they can ingest the essential sodium and chloride minerals they need to survive.
This is why you should have in your diet a high quality Mediterranean Sea Salt:

Diabetes: Reduces the need for insulin to maintain the correct levels of sugar in the body, becoming an essential ingredient of the diabetic diet.
Musculature: Potassium is essential to help muscles functioning properly. This salt contains small amounts of potassium, and helps the body to better absorb potassium from other foods. That is why it is effective in preventing spasms, cramps, some myopathies and muscle aches. It is vital for the muscular contraction, necessary to maintain muscle tone and strength, the stimulation of the nerves, the proper functioning of the adrenal glands, for the growth and development of the body.
Osteoporosis: One third of the amount of salt in our body is stored in the bones, where the salt helps keeping them strong and resistant. If there is a lack of water and salt in the body, it starts to get sodium from the bones, which over time can cause osteoporosis and bone fragility. In this way, drinking lots of water and consuming high quality salt in moderation can prevent osteoporosis.
