Snack Time

Looking for a clean, power snack? 

Jackson's Honest Potato Chips contain organic potatoes, coconut oil, and sea salt. That's it. No preservatives, no harmful oils, no artificial anything.
These babies trump anything that's been processed and coined as "gluten free". 

Potatoes contain high amounts of potassium, which actually aids in blood sugar regulation, lowering blood pressure, and muscle building. As well, sea salt helps to lower adrenalin, regulate hormones, absorb nutrients, and lower blood pressure. And finally, coconut oil is a natural anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-microbial agent that helps fight disease. It also tends to burn immediately as fuel, rather than store as fat on your body. In addition, it is perfect for people with no gallbladders, as it does not need bile to be emulsified. (I'm talking nerdy to you).

Enjoy!

Not All Salts Are Created Equal

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.
