What are mineral salts? Where in living beings can mineral salts be found?
Mineral salts are simple inorganic substances made of metallic chemical elements, like iron, sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium, or of non- metallic elements, like chlorine and phosphorus.
They can be found in non-solubilized form, as part of structures of the organism, like the calcium in bones. They can also be found solubilized in water, as ions: for example, the sodium and potassium cations within cells.
