Nitrites And Salt Question...


I'm having trouble with very high nitrites in one of my tanks (separate post about that on the Tanks board!) and as I've read many times on here that adding a 0.1% salt solution will help reduce the effects of high nitrites on fish, this is what I've done tonight.

But why does it? What is it about salt that affects the nitrites and their toxicity? Very curious to know. :)
