Why it's important for hydration
Without enough chloride in your body, you won’t be able to properly balance your fluids. When imbalanced, you’re either losing more water than you can take in (dehydration), or consuming more water than your body can get rid of (hypervolemia). Both are bad.
Why it's important for overall health
Chloride combines with hydrogen in your stomach to make hydrochloric acid, a powerful enzyme responsible for the breakdown of proteins and the absorption of metallic minerals and vitamin B12.
It also helps your body digest and absorb nutrients.
Your body’s red blood cells and plasma exchange chloride to transport carbon dioxide and balance your body’s pH.
