How much salt is in the human body?


1 Answer

The human body contains many salts, of which sodium chloride is the major one, making up around 0.4 percent of the body's weight at a concentration pretty well equivalent to that in seawater. So a 110 pound person would contain around 200 grams of sodium chloride – around 40 teaspoons.
