Did you know that most people aren’t eating enough salt? Real salt I mean.
If you still use table salt. Stop. Now. Yikes that stuff is toxic! Firstly it’s had its iodine removed which, amongst other things, is essential for thyroid health. It’s been stripped of its beautiful, minerally nutritional value and had anti caking agent added to keep it bone dry. That means when you eat it your body can’t absorb it….so you end up with salty build up in your arteries and tissues….
Sea and rock salt: it’s the business. Here’s why…
“Salt is not only critical to your life, but it is one of the basic elements of which your body is made. Without salt, you could not exist for a moment”.
Every cell in the human body is dependent on the presence of sodium. We find sodium diffused throughout the fluid between cells. Inside our cells is primarily potassium. These two minerals, sodium and potassium need to be in constant, dynamic balance so the cells can exchange incoming energy with outgoing, depleted energy. Your body is constantly monitoring these minerals and working to maintain their delicate balance.
