Benefits of Sea Salt
Hey guys, Axe here, of naturalmedicine. In this tutorial I'm going to train you on the many benefits of sea salt and thenegative side effects of iodized table salt. At the end I'll talk about the ways that Ispecifically like to use salt and something you've got to be aware of also your sodiumto potassium ratio. Let's start off talking about the benefitsof sea salt and why to stay away from iodized salt. Iodized table salt today is about 97%salt, but it also has anticaking agents, MSG, and also aluminum derivatives. If you'rejust using regular salt, you use it when you're out to eat or you buy it at your regular grocerystore, that is not the salt you want to be
using. It's not natural. I know that it doeshave iodine. Most people tend to not necessarily be iodine deficient because they're not gettingenough salt. It's because they're not eating enough iodine rich foods if it's an issue. Just to say this, regular iodized salt hasbeen shown to increase your blood pressure. It's been shown to increase weight gain andincrease cellulite buildup in your body. You want to stay away from regular iodized saltbecause of the aluminum and because of the anticaking agents and the other chemicaladditives. Now, what you should be doing is consumingsea salt or rock salt on a regular basis.
I know that my wife actually for Christmashere a few years ago got me a salt collection that I use in different seasonings. I knowthat I have Himalayan salt, Celtic sea salt, and other salts from all around the world.In fact, I've got some different black types of salts, one from Hawaii that I absolutelylove. There are a lot of different types of salt out there. But again when we're talking about a rocksalt, like a Himalayan salt, or a sea salt, like a Celtic sea salt, it's not just salt.There are other electrolytes or vitamins and minerals that are associated with those. Infact, if you look at a Himalayan sea salt
or a Celtic salt, they may contain as manyas 80 trace vitamins and minerals in that one salt alone. So it's not just sodium. It'salso potassium. It's chloride. It's magnesium. You're going to find these other ratios there. Some of the benefits of consuming sea saltin moderation include increased hydration. It can support your kidneys and actually helpsupport kidney detoxification. It can improve cleansing your colon. It can improve the healthof your libido. It can improve brain function and help get fluids throughout the body. Itcan support heart health and really also improve overall energy levels.
Getting sea salt or rock salt is actuallyan important part of your diet. You should be getting it on a regular basis. Two of myfavorites, Himalayan salt and Celtic sea salt, are absolutely two of the best you shouldbe using. I want to say that typically doing a fourth of a teaspoon per meal three timesa day is about the ideal amount for most people. If you're an athlete, you can actually doquite a bit more if you're sweating on a regular basis. You do want to be getting a littlebit of salt on your food, especially if you have a thyroid problem. If you have a thyroidissue, getting a little bit of this real salt every day in your food is an absolute must.
Now along with increasing your salt consumptionwith the benefits of sea salt, you also need to be getting more potassium rich foods. Iwould go onto my website, DrAxe , and look up potassium rich food list and really increaseboth of those, because hydration is not just about getting more water. It's about gettingmore sodium and getting more potassium. You need to get more of both of those, so potassiumrich foods like avocados, spinach, homemade yogurt, figs, kiwi. A lot of fruits and vegetablesare high in potassium. Again that's what you want to be focusing on. Really almost everybodyshould probably be getting more good quality sea salt as well as getting more potassium.You need those ratios balanced. It helps with
