Hi Adam1994 - "Inorganic salts are sources of essential ions eg. sodium, chlorine, potassium etc. Important functions include - metabolic processes/regulation include transport to/from cells, muscular contraction, conduction of nerve impulses, acid base & water balance, cell membrane polarity, coagulation, energy release (inc. ATP synthesis) and as a component of bone tissue." These aren't my words - I found it here: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_the_function_of_inorganic_salts_in_the_body Hope this helps

i cant see how sodium and chloride ae minor inorganic salts... i thought more in the direction of iron, selenium, zinc etc. having said that theu are usually cofactors for enzymes, owing to their reducing capacities (like the heme moiety of hemoglobin)
