15+1 reasons salt benefits our health

  1. Stabilizes irregular heartbeat and regulates blood pressure – in conjunction with water
  2. Extracts excess acidity from the cells in the body, particularly the brain cells
  3. Balances sugar levels in the blood, which is particularly important for diabetics
  4. Is essential for the generation of hydroelectric energy in the cells of the body
  5. Is vital for the absorption of nutrient components through the intestinal tract
  6. Is needed to clear the lungs of mucus and sticky phlegm, particularly in those suffering from asthma and cystic fibrosis
  7. Clears up catarrh and congestion in the sinuses
  8. Is a strong natural antihistamine
  9. Can prevent muscle cramps
  10. Helps prevent excess saliva production; saliva that is flowing out of the mouth during sleep may indicate salt deficiency
  11. Makes bones firm; 27 percent of the body’s salt content is located in the bones; salt deficiency and/or eating refined salt versus real salt are major causes of osteoporosis
  12. Regulates sleep; acts as a natural hypnotic
  13. Helps prevent gout and gouty arthritis
  14. Is vital for maintaining sexuality and libido
  15. Can prevent varicose veins and spider veins on the legs and thighs
  16. Supplies the body with over 80 essential mineral elements; refined salt, such as the common table salt, has been stripped of all but two of these elements. In addition, refined, commercial salt contains harmful additives, including aluminum silicate, a primary cause of Alzheimer’s disease.
