10 Awesome Truths about the Amazing Benefits of Healthy Salt

Did you know that there are benefits of healthy salt intake? Yes, I’m sure you’ve heard it said that too much salt is unhealthy. I’m sure you’ve been warned that sodium levels that are too high can be dangerous for your overall health. Truth be told, too much of anything isn’t good for you, so why would be surprised that too much sodium would be. By the same token, if your body has a sodium deficiency your body is also at risk. Sodium is a naturally occurring element and is necessary for the human body to function properly. The key is finding a balance of good sodium levels vs. bad sodium levels.

The amazing thing is that our bodies have been created to balance all of the various levels of elements, minerals, and even hormones. The problem comes when those levels get out of balance. This can happen for a variety of reasons. The first of which is when minerals which we introduce into your bodies through consumption have been so altered that our bodies don’t recognize them.

The problem that we face is that the salt industry has refined salt. They’ve used a chemical process to remove what they consider to be impurities and a bleaching process so that the salt appears to be white. When those impurities are removed what is essentially happening is the removal of trace minerals found within the salt. The best option or healthy salt consumption is when the salt is rich in trace minerals and free from manufacturing additives.

Salt has been used for thousands of years as a natural flavor enhancer.

To receive the maximum nutritional benefits you need to use naturally occuring healthy salt. These healthy salts are mined from dead sea beds found at ground level or under the grounds surfaced. They are left natural. Naturally occuring minerals are rich in trace minerals like; calcium, magnesium, sulfur, boron, zinc, iron, copper, and many more.

Utilizing naturally occurring salts such as Pink Himalayan Salt, Celtic Sea Salt, Redmond’s Real Salt, and Volcanic red or black lava salt, offers needed minerals that aid the overall health of the body. These trace minerals occur differently in each grain which means you’ll find different benefits in each type of healthy salt.
