Introducing a new size of Real Salt, a smaller version of the regular 10oz. These are great for travel! Compared to Real Salt brand salt, many sea salts appear stark white because they have undergone a harsh refining process. Unlike Real Salt, these salts are filled with silicates, dextrose, and other additives. By contrast, Real Salt is an all-natural, kosher-certified sea salt extracted from deep within the earth, crushed, screened, and packaged. Real Salt's unique flecks of color are the result of more than 50 natural trace minerals essential to human health (including natural iodine!). Experience the goodness of Real Salt!
The negatively charged ions in real salt, especially when combined with water, support a host of hormonal, chemical and electrical processes in the body.
Its trace mineral concentration makes it especially supportive of nerve and heart health. (Scary, since cardiac patients are often told to reduce sodium).
Some other health-related processes that salt can support are:
- Food absorption: Proper mineral balance in food and water helps the body absorb and assimilate food and water better.
- Cell Cleansing– The negatively charged ions in real salt and the trace mineral concentration let it cross into cells and pull toxins from them, supporting cell health.
- Blood Pressure– Some evidence shows that it may actually support healthy blood pressure.
- Heart Health- The negative ions in real salt help stabilize an irregular heart beat and support electro-chemical reactions in the body.
- pH Balance- It is alkalizing and may help balance the body’s pH.
- Blood Sugar- Proper mineral balance from real salt helps increase insulin sensitivity and supports healthy blood sugar levels.
- Seasonal Discomforts– Some evidence shows that real salt dissolved in warm water is an effective at relieving seasonal discomforts.
- Respiratory Support– Real Salt can be helpful in clearing up excess mucous and phlegm.
- Improved sleep– Balancing the trace minerals in the body is supportive of hormone processes and can improve sleep quality and duration.
- Reproductive Health– By supporting natural hormone function, real salt is also supportive of natural fertility in men and women.
- Cellulite– There is some evidence that cellulite is lessened by proper intake of regular salt.
- Cell Communication– Its pH and ion concentration help improve chemical communication between cells.
- Muscle Tension– The trace minerals and pH in real salt help alleviate muscle discomfort. This is one reason that you often see athletes soak in salt water/epsom salt baths.
- Bone Health- Real Salt supports healthy bone structure. When sodium and trace mineral stores are not high enough in the body, it can pull salt from the bones to keep the rest of the body functioning. This can be a tremendous factor in osteoporosis.
- Adrenal and Thyroid Health- the pH and trace minerals in salt are extremely important for proper adrenal and thyroid function. Iodized salt usually has anti-caking ingredients that are known to block the thyroid's ability to take in the iodine. Real Salt supports proper thyroid function.
- Nerve function– The electrical properties in Real Salt help support proper nerve function throughout the body.
- Digestive Health– When consumed with water, it can support the digestive system and increase stomach acid.
- Oral Health– Real Salt trace minerals can be helpful for oral health and for remineralizing teeth. Swishing with a salt water mixture daily can help improve oral health.
