You are not alone of you have times when you crave salt.  Your body is likely telling you something. Often it can be your internal genius crying out for more essential minerals.  For many Americans who eat the Standard American Diet (S.A.D.) getting enough salt isn’t the problem, in fact we get too much sodium in the form of refined, white table salt.  A great alternative that actually nourishes your adrenal glands and thyroid, keeps your blood alkaline and can even increase the healing powers of other foods is Sea Salt.

5 Tips

Many of you reading this already use sea salt because of its outstanding taste compared to regular table salt. Now you can learn how good it’s doing your body as well as your taste buds.

  1. Ditch the white, highly refined table salt. Instead purchase some high quality, mineral rich, unprocessed Sea Salt.  They may be colored, but the colors are merely the presence of valuable, nourishing minerals our bodies need for good health.
  2. Ladies, try cutting way back on salt intake after ovulation to avoid feeling up tight and irritable.  Reducing your salt intake also helps to ease that time of cleansing your body is going through.
  3. Men need more salt than women. Athletes (especially endurance athletes) need more salt to function.  Children under the age of 2 need almost none. Between 1600-2400 mg. of sodium per day is a good general guideline for adults. 1 tsp of salt provides 2000 mg. sodium.
  4. Pure, raw Sea Salt can help balance gut flora by alkalizing the blood so diseases like Candidiasis (yeast infection caused by an overgrowth of Candida Albicans) cannot thrive. Important to note: you cannot correct a mineral deficiency with Sea Salt, taking additional minerals is necessary, so consult your Doctor.
  5. Revitalize and relax with a Sea Salt bath soak.  It’s not just for food! A Sea Salt bath helps to relax muscles, ease aches and pains in the joints, additionally it draws out impurities from the skin.
