Typical table salt has iodine added (starting in the 1920s to prevent iodine deficiency), and has been “processed” to remove non-salt substances. It also has a few added chemicals… usually anti-caking agents at the very least.
- alkalizing the body
- increasing immunity
- improving electrolyte balance
- promoting good sleep and good moods
- preventing muscle cramps
- regulating of the cardiovascular system
- and more…
The minerals found in sea salt make it a good natural alkalizer. The same can’t be said for common table salt, which has had all or most of its other minerals removed. (For this reason, it is of particular interest to those following the alkaline diet.)
The range of benefits of such a simple ingredient are truly amazing. We haven’t even talked about its possible uses in regards to asthma, cholesterol, high blood pressure, and weight loss. If you’re on the alkaline diet or just serious about your health, you may want to give sea salt a closer look!
