Our Organic Pure Salt has natural properties which have many health benefits, including anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties.
We have salt in every cell of our bodies – about 250 grams (a cupful) in an adult human. That’s why our tears and sweat taste salty.
Organic Pure Salt plays a crucial role in keeping our bodies functioning properly. When we exercise, when we’re hot, and when we’re going through physiological changes, such as pregnancy or growing old, its role becomes even more fundamental. Most crucially, it maintains the balance of our fluids, which carry oxygen and nutrients around our bodies.
Our body is able to adjust to the amount of salt that we consume, such as through making us thirsty when it needs extra water to dilute the salt. A healthy body processes just the right amount of salt it needs and the kidneys dispose of any excess.
Without enough salt, our bodies cannot perform all the vital functions listed above. Symptoms of insufficient salt include muscular weakness, muscular cramps and, in the extreme, heat exhaustion and heat cramps. Severe salt deprivation can even prove fatal.
“Salt imbalances can make us very ill. We need to embrace the ‘salt of the earth’ in order to replace vital minerals.”
