Summary

  • Sulfate ions are involved in phase II liver detoxification (conjugation) rendering metabolites more water-soluble, thereby inactivating them and facilitating their excretion in the bile, faeces or urine
  • Sodium is required for bile production, and is incorporated into the conjugation products of several bile salt
  • Sodium is intimately involved in the maintenance of body fluid balance and the regulation of blood volume and osmolarity
  • Sodium and sulfate act together to maintain fluid balance within connective tissue
  • In the extracellular matrix, sulfated proteoglycans have a strong negative charge attracting cations such as sodium, which in turn attracts water and provides hydration to connective tissue mesh and maintains its integrity
  • Sulfate is a structural component of many glycosaminoglycans, proteoglycans, glycolipids and glycoproteins found in connective tissue, contributing to its strength, elasticity and hydration
