Not All Salts Are Created Equal

Amberleigh CarterComment

There's a huge difference between refined white table salt and unrefined white sea salt.

Refined white table salt:

  • Often contain anti-caking agents, some of which are aluminum-based and linked to heavy metal toxicity and Alzheimer's disease.
  • Other additives, such as dextrose (a sugar), are used in iodized salt (salt with iodine added) to keep the salt from turning purple.
  • Sodium silico-aluminate, also added to processed table salt, is associated with kidney problems and mineral malabsorption.
  • Furthermore, sodium acetate is added to table salt, which causes elevated blood pressure, kidney disturbances, and water retention.

Unrefined white sea salt (white Celtic Sea Salt or Morton Canning & Pickling Salt):

  • Aids in balancing blood sugar levels.
  • Clears the lungs of mucus and phlegm, which helps those with asthma and cystic fibrosis
  • It is a strong antihistamine, which helps with bites, stings, lowering adrenaline and stress, & more
  • Helps to prevent muscle cramps (including women's cycles)
  • Alleviates headaches, dizziness, and light-headedness upon standing
  • Makes bones firm
  • Helps absorb nutrients in the intestines
  • Extracts excess acidity from the cells of the body, particularly in brain cells
  • It is very hydrating to the body

Consider this to be your formal invitation to add a pinch (about 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon) of unrefined white sea salt to each liter of water you drink.  This will help maintain electrolyte and energy levels, while also helping your body perform vital functions. 

Oh--and you might as well just throw away that iodized refined white table salt while you're at it (hint: iodine is a thyroid inhibitor).  Your body will thank you.
