Is Salt Bad For You?

 

Salt isn’t actually the devil we think it is and can actually have so many benefits.

The reason salt is demonised today is because of the dreaded table salt. Table salt is manufactured by taking natural salt and heating it to extreme temperatures, in this process the chemical composition is completely altered and all of the nutritional benefits are destroyed. As a result people are led to believe salt is bad for you, but in reality it depends on the salt you’re using.

Table salt really isn’t salt at all; it is processed and contains chemicals. This type of salt puts people at risk of disease and cardiovascular issues.

Real salt, on the other hand, has many benefits! Using sea salt or Himalayan salt is a great digestive enzyme enhancer meaning your body is more able to absorb the nutrients from the foods you eat. Sea salt contains lots of trace minerals that help you to stay hydrated as well as electrolytes.

You can actually bathe in salt to help increase your magnesium levels. This also creates a detoxifying effect and is super relaxing. Add in some coconut oil for a super luxurious treat.
