Letting water sit for 24 hours will greatly reduce the chlorine level, as aquarium enthusiasts and orchid gardeners know. Some water systems, however, add chloramine, which lingers much longer, so it's good to check with your water dept. if you need to know. I know about this due to a mild heart murmur which reacts to too much chlorine.

Sodium and magnesium chloride are both commonly found. They aren't usually present in amounts that would be "nutritional" (especially not sodium, since everyone gets more than enough salt in their diet), but they do give tapwater a more pleasant flavor than distilled water.
Biv, I know (knew) a woman who would say "not everybody" but it was her own uninformed fault. She went to great extremes to remove all sodium from her diet. Even to the point of washing any canned foods that she used. She was bragging about this one day. I told she needs some sodium to keep her cells healthy. Some weeks later I ran into her and she had been to the doctor feeling miserable. He asked her about salt and she started bragging - until he stopped her. Then he explained how sodium keeps body fluids in balance inside and outside the cells.
