I think everybody knows that eating to much salt is unhealthy, but what most of you don't know is that even the most common table-salt contains chemicals and even sugar!? like.. WTF!
Another fact is that people tend to think that seasalt is better then the normal table salt but the thing is they have the same basic nutritional value. The most notable differences between sea salt and table salt are in their taste, texture and processing.
The table and cooking salt found in most homes, restaurants, and processed foods is void of nutritional value, lacking beneficial trace minerals. Processing salt turns it into sodium chloride, an unnatural salt the human body actually sees as a toxic invader! The body cannot dispose of it in a natural, healthy way which can lead to inflammation of the tissues, water retention and high blood pressure :| yeah..shocking.. oke there's more..Studies show that for each gram of table salt your system cannot process, your body will use over twenty times the amount of cellular water to neutralize the sodium chloride in chemically-treated salt. This can lead to cellulite (HOLY F#CK!?) rheumatism, arthritis, gout, as well as kidney and gallbladder stones. I know I know.. enough already.. so what is the other option to season your food in a healthier way? Well...
I use Himalayan Seasalt, unlike the 'normal' salt you're familiar with Himalayan Seasalt has been used in natural medicine and therapeutic treatments for centuries. With benefits that include everything from increased energy levels and concentration, to weight loss, enhanced sleep quality, and improvements in the functioning of your body's major systems, this powerful mineral has effective healing properties that can restore health and have you feeling better than ever. Its minerals exist in a colloidal form, meaning that they are tiny enough for our cells to easily absorb.
