Organic Sea Salt vs. White Table Salt


Salt is salt. . . right? No, its not!

Learn the difference between commercial salt and natural, organic, gourmet sea salt crystal. Most people buy iodized salt from the grocery store and don’t think a thing about it. They don’t realize that good sea salt can help give them good health, while refined salt can create some health risks.

Salt comes from the sea. It may have been laid down centuries ago in salt deposits, or it may have been dehydrated from pure seawater. Grocery store salt is different from salt from natural sources. It has been heated—up to 1200° F.!—and refined to remove most of the natural elements. Grocery store salt is mostly chemical sodium chloride, while natural sea salt has up to 84 natural minerals in it.

Your body craves natural salt. In fact, your blood actually contains 0.9% salt, which maintains the delicate balance of sodium throughout your body. Just about every system in your body needs good  sea salt to make it work. It is especially important for your nervous system, but every body structure absolutely requires it. The National Academy of Sciences advises that we consume at least 500 mg. of sodium a day to maintain good health. How much a person actually needs varies quite a bit, depending on their genetics and daily routine.

Popular diets say you should reduce or even eliminate dietary salt for good health, especially for cardiovascular disease. However, studies from Scotland, Finland and the United States showed little or no correlation between reducing your salt intake and reducing coronary heart disease. Perhaps refined table salt, which can act like a poison in your body, can be more of a risk. But the research is undeniable: reducing or eliminating dietary salt is basically wrong. Your body absolutely requires salt, but it has to be the right kind. Pure, natural unrefined Original  Sea Crystal Salt™ is such a salt. It gives you the healthy nutrients you need, in a form your body can use. It is pink because of the natural minerals in it! Gourmets say sea salt tastes fantastic, with a richness you may have never tasted before from grocery store salt.

Natural health practitioners are convinced that good crystal sea salt can improve your health. It keeps you safe and healthy during exercise; in fact, high-altitude hikers make sure they get enough so they don’t go into hyperthermia. Taking adequate dietary salt has improved and even eliminated Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Hypertension and stomach cancer have been linked to salt imbalance from improper dietary intake. Cystic fibrosis has been linked to improper salt metabolism. Expectant mothers are always advised to take enough salt in order to help create a healthy infant.

If you’ve never tried good sea salt, you are going to be amazed at how good it tastes and how affordable it is. You may also be surprised at how quickly your health improves from using good, natural, organic sea salt. Try our sample first if you need more convincing.

What is Crystal Salt?

When we speak of Crystal Salt, we are referring to only one specific crystal salt, the “Original”, coming from one specific location in the Himalayan Mountain of Pakistan and has been the subject of comprehensive medical research as written about in the book Water&Salt - The Essence of Life, by Dr. Barbara Hendel, MD and Peter Ferreira. Original Himalayan Crystal Salt is more than sodium and chloride. Original Himalayan Crystal Salt can actually be viewed as food. When we speak of this salt, and as we scrutinize its properties, we mean salt in its original form: holistic, wholesome, unaltered, natural salt, as it has crystallized in the Earth over millions of years.

Original Himalayan Sea Crystal Salt contains all the elements of which the human body is comprised. From the periodic table of elements we are familiar with 94 natural elements (stable as well as unstable). Apart from inert gases, all of these elements (84) can be found in crystal salt. Hence, crystal salt 

contains all natural minerals and trace elements that are found in the human body. We perceive crystal salt as being the totality of all natural elements. This 

may not be entirely correct according to chemistry, however we will continue to use the term crystal salt in this context. The number of the respective 

elements contained in the crystal salt is biophysically irrelevant to this study.
