Salt and it’s effects on human health
Whether you’re cooking or going through a detox session, it’s important to choose the right kind of salt, especially when you consider that an average person consumes between 4,000 – 6,000 mg of salt per day, and some people consume even more. Table salt accounts for most of this consumption and this has resulted in a variety of health problems.
Why not Table Salt?
Table salt is perhaps one of the most common household items and ingredients in cooking. Unfortunately, the “impurities” removed during the table salt production process happen to be essential minerals needed for your body. After the salt is processed, 99 percent of what’s left is a non-natural sodium chloride. In addition, some additives may be added to prevent clumping and improve the pouring process. Aluminum hydroxide is sometimes used, which deposits to our brains and is related to Alzheimer’s. The high balance of sodium chloride in table salt makes it easy for a person to exceed the daily intake limit. While our bodies need Sodium for survival, it also needs the other minerals which are removed from natural salt in order to make table salt.
Table salt does little good for your overall health, and contributes to ailments like rheumatism, arthritis. or kidney and gall bladder stones.
Why Himalayan Pink Salt?
