Many believe that salt is bad for you, but without it, we wouldn’t survive. An essential electrolyte needed for the body to function is salt. Sodium helps maintain your fluids, regulates blood pressure, muscle contraction and much more.
Sweat is the release of sodium from your body. It needs to be replaced to a healthy level because it is not something your body produces. If it is not properly replaced your body may experience fatigue, dizziness, headaches and more. Deficiency for long periods can be fatal. Increasing your table salt has been researched and proven to cause heart problems. This causes many people to reduce their salt intake. Reducing your salt is not the answer but the type of salt your intaking.
Table salt goes through heavy processing and contains many added chemicals. This can cause the body more harm than good. Natural salts like sea salt, Celtic sea salt, and Himalayan salt are unrefined and have no added chemicals. These salts go through a natural drying process which keeps the minerals (potassium, magnesium, and calcium) that your body needs.
Replacing your table salt with a natural salt is a healthier alternative and can be found at your local grocery store. Also making sure you are avoiding packaged and processed foods high in processed salt and chemicals will improve your health.
