Pigs Fly + Salt is Healthy

WELLNESS WEDNESDAY SPOTLIGHT: SALT

I bet you’ve heard lots of deets on different salts. These two are the highest quality, most nutritious salts you will find and staples in my kitchen. But, why?

Salt, albeit easily overdose on in America, is still vital for our health. First and foremost, since these salts are LESS processed, they have less sodium per serving. Woot! We do need salt since it’s necessary for our body to operate efficiently, particularly when it comes to: digestion, electrolyte balance, and even mental acuity. However, there are more nutritious forms of salt that should have you tossing your iodized table salt like, NOW.

Himalayan Crystal Salt:

The varied colors of pink, red + white within this salt is the sign of it’s mineral and energy-rich iron content. It is made up of 85.62% sodium chloride + 14.38% other trace minerals including: sulphate, magnesium, calcium, potassium, bicarbonate, bromide, borate, strontium, and fluoride.

Kalahari Desert Salt:

This is a pure, mineral-rich salt with vital minerals + trace elements. It’s especially high in potassium, magnesium + sulfur.

These salts can help specifically with the following:

  • Create an electrolyte balance
  • Increases hydration
  • Regulate water content both inside and outside of cells
  • Balance pH (alkaline/acidity) and help to reduce acid reflux
  • Prevent muscle cramping
  • Aid in proper metabolism functioning
  • Strengthen bones
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Help the intestines absorb nutrients
  • Prevent goiters
  • Improve circulation
  • Dissolve and eliminate sediment to remove toxins
