Which anion is most abundant in blood?

Asked by Clarissa Mercado

Chloride is the most common anion in the body and is primarily found in the extracellular blood compartment (serum or plasma). Chloride, with sodium, potassium, and bicarbonate, regulates water distribution, osmotic pressure, pH, and ion balance in the extracellular compartment of the blood.
