The SALT Debate

epsom-salts

Written by: Samantha Russ

Is salt good or bad for you? This question has plagued society for as long as I can remember. After some thorough research, I have come to some conclusions—REFINED SALT (processed table salt) is deserving of its notorious reputation while SEA SALT deserves a little more praise, and is actually crucial for good health.

With Refined Salt, you:

1). RETAIN WATER, Ergo, YOU BLOAT

Menstruating? Resist having those salty tortilla chips in front of you, your lovely female body will LITERALLY hold onto every piece of salt that chip as to offer.

2). BECOME ADDICTED

Once you start, you want more of it over time.

3). INCREASE YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE

Which is not good for your kidneys, heart, or brain.

SEA SALT, on the other hand, is a balance of minerals that actually aid the body in its normal functions. So unlike table salt, which digests as a substance your body wants to rid itself of, sea salt regulates the very problems table salt creates.

With sea salt, you:

1). Expel excess fluid and eliminate edema/water retention

2). Equalize sugar levels in blood and absorb the right nutrients

3). Stabilize irregular heartbeats

4.) Expel excess acidity from brain cells

5.) Prevent muscle cramps

and much more… let’s not forget how incredibly healing an Epsom salt bath is!

The bottom line is you should eliminate table salt the way you seek to eliminate refined sugar. However, sea salt in its natural element is something you may want to start adding to your diet.
