Salt plays a variety of positive roles within the lung. First, salt is believed to have anti-inflammatory properties. Reducing inflammation in bronchial tubes allows them to relax and expand which allows airflow for easier breathing. Salt also has antimicrobial effects essential in the case of acute bronchitis in that it assists in removing the infection, speeding the time to recover.
In addition, an increase in the amount of salt inside the lung lining pulls more fluid into the lung. This causes a thinning of the mucus lining that is usually thick and sticky for patients who suffer from bronchitis. The increased fluidity of mucus assists in removing particles from the lungs in order to ease the inflammation and can also help break up and release congestion for more comfortable breathing.
