I’m Crazy For Real Salt!
I’ve told you before that my family thinks I’m crazy. I received stares of slightly disconcerted curiosity when I started mixing up my own shampoo, toothpaste, and deodorant in the kitchen. But the other day my dad saw me very liberally salting my dinner plate before I brought it to the table.
I turned around and saw mortified alarm in his widening eyes. “It’s sea salt!” I quickly reassured him, before realizing that I had yet to educate my family members on the benefits of this mineral-rich ingredient. “It’s good for you!” I said, trying to ameliorate his concern.
With one last effort, I said, “I think of it as a supplement!”
Unfortunately, that phrase required even more explanation, so I spent the rest of dinner extolling the following virtues of sea salt to my family members.
Yes, Salt is Good For You!
As a matter of fact, numerous studies support the growing belief that old-fashioned doses of sea salt actually contribues to vitality and longevity.
A 2006 study published in The American Journal of Medicine tells us that “sodium intake of less than 2300 mg (the daily recommended allowance) was associated with a 37% increase in cardiovascular disease mortality and a 28% increase of all-cause mortality.
Trace Mineral Profile
Additionally, sea salts like Real Salt contains over 60 trace minerals. This complete, whole form of salt fulfills your body’s craving for these essential nutrients. These minerals also lend a characteristic pink color to the salt.
Choose Your Salt Carefully
Regular table salt–that bleached white powder ground into suspiciously uniform granules–has been stripped of any nutritional value. It is a chemically-manipulated imitation of the real thing! That salt spikes blood pressure–not sea salt. Additionally, those processed salts often contain additives like the sugar dextrose.
