The Truth about Salt

Posted: September 10, 2018

Salt is a naturally occurring and vital aspect to our body. This may seem contradictory to conventional diet advice from our elders but both are correct. We need salt in our bodies, just a specific type of it. Many people are unaware that there are substantial differences between different types of salt; Salt you’ll find sitting on your table in a restaurant (appropriately named Table Salt), and naturally occurring salt that you’ll find in your body and all around you. These differentiations have a drastic impact on your overall health and wellbeing! In fact regular table salt has no common factors with natural salt…minus the name of course.

Common table salt comes complete with various chemicals of which ultimately pollute and contaminate the body, forcing it to run down. Full of chemicals and sodium chloride, it forces the body to retain water, 23 times the amount of natural salt! Since it is dried at high temperatures, the chemical content is changed and our bodies aren’t able to neutralize it. On a daily basis, most ingest anywhere between 4,000 to 6,000 mg! This causes uncomfortable and common side effects such cellulite, gout, gall bladder and kidney stones, as well as types of arthritis.  

            Naturally occurring salt such as Himalayan Salt (nicknamed white gold) is jam packed with 84 elements and minerals aiding your body to function optimally! In conjunction with spring water, it provides the body with all of the elements it needs. It’s over 250 million years old and is the purest, most uncontaminated salt available! The other benefits include:

  1. regulating the water content throughout your body
