Salt is an essential element in the human body. Unfortunately, most people use refined table salt void of its natural minerals, which has a different effect on the body than natural sea salt. Natural sea salt offers the following benefits:
Helps with muscle contraction and expansion, nerve stimulation, adrenal function and other biological processes.
Provides chloride, which helps produce acids necessary to digest protein and enzymes for carbohydrate digestion, and is necessary for proper brain functioning and growth.
Contains magnesium, which is important for producing enzymes, nerve transmission, bone formation, forming tooth enamel, and resistance to heart disease, and it also contains many other trace minerals.
Helps maintain electrolytes in the body, which are essential for cellular communication and proper muscle function.
Aids in food absorption and maintains blood sugar, reducing the risk of diabetes.
Plays an important role in freeing the lungs of mucus and phlegm.
Helps maintain the body's natural pH.
Supplies essential minerals directly to our cells to enhance and improve the body's immune system and increases resistance against infections and bacterial diseases.
Helps in the preservation of serotonin and melatonin.
Helps in stabilizing abnormal heartbeats. In fact, sea salt in conjunction with water and in the right proportion is essential for the regulation of blood pressure.
Before sleeping, if taken with warm water, it helps induce a deeper and longer sleep.
It helps control drool while sleeping, which usually happens if the body is deprived of the right type of salt and water.
It helps in the preservation of serotonin and melatonin, both which are essential hormones required to manage stress.
