    This is a long held belief that may have to do with the fact that air blowing in from the ocean is probably cleaner than it is in a city with industry and pollution.  When you are by the sea side, the smell of the salty air may inspire you to take deep breaths.
    This might not be true in a modern port city where there are many ships that burn high sulphur fuel and emit toxic fumes, but in the days of sailing ships it was probably very fresh clean air.

      Also, there are healing properties to salt, and more people have salt lamps in their homes as "purifiers," so the salt is a type of "antioxidant" by absorption.
