    The solubility of the two salts are very similar. ALL nitrates are soluble, and sodium chloride is common table salt, and also always soluble. The consequence to nature is slim, as all representing ions are needed for life to function. I'm fairly certain a biological process exists for using nitrate to make protein, why else would nitrates be used in fertilizer. Also there are cellular systems that use sodium and potassium ions to activate various switches, the Na-K pump of animal biology for example.
