Sea Salt vs Real Salt
Real Salt comes in its natural state with more than 60 naturally occurring trace minerals. Unlike many other salts, Real Salt is brought to your table without additives, chemicals, or heat processing of any kind. This ensures all the natural goodness essential to your body is preserved in Real Salt.
Sea Salt is commonly produced by evaporating our current oceans which may contain toxic waste, oil spills, acid rain, mercury, lead, sewage, garbage and radiation. Real Salt on the other hand has been preserved underground, tucked away from modern pollution.
Refined salt will be white whether it is table salt or sea salt. Pure salt will have color and specks due to the natural trace minerals.
Is Salt Really Bad for Me?
Salt is–and always has been–essential for optimal health. The human body is made up of 72% salt water and 28% mineral. We need salt and minerals to survive. It's no wonder why, when admitted to any hospital, you are usually hooked up to an IV, which feeds saline solution (salt water) quickly into your body. So, the question is not, "Should I be eating salt?" but rather, "What kind of salt should I be eating?" Because of the additives and lack of trace minerals, most salts are not good for you.
A 2006 study published in The American Journal of Medicine, tells us that "sodium intake of less than 2300 mg (the daily recommended allowance) was associated with a 37% increase in cardiovascular disease mortality and a 28% increase of all-cause mortality."
In other words, people who consume too little salt are more likely to die than other people. Real Salt is good for you.
Read the Label
If your salt label has any additives listed then it shouldn't go in your body. It really is this simple. If your salt contains additives then it has been processed and refined which removes all the natural goodness. Not long ago the words "sea salt" on the label meant the salt was healthy. Unfortunately, today, since all salt originated from the sea, clever marketers are capitalizing on the sea salt buzz words even though it may be nothing more than white, refined table salt.
Healthy Trace Minerals
Just like minimally-processed flour is healthier than enriched, bleached, white flour, Real Salt is healthier than white salts because of the things we don't take out of it. Real Salt is approximately 98% sodium chloride and 2% trace minerals, and it's these 60+ trace minerals that make Real Salt real. Some of these minerals don't dissolve in water, but they are bio-available (your body can absorb and use them as nature designed) and are good for your health.
What About the Silica? You probably remember learning that silica most often appears in nature as sand. Like iron and magnesium, silica is one of those things our bodies use to stay healthy even though it seems a little strange to think of eating it. The health and science community recognized silica as an essential trace element in the early 1970's, and studies since then have indicated it can perform two important tasks in our bodies: it can help calcium do its job and prevent osteoporosis, and it can prevent aluminum from contributing to Alzheimers. In other words, silica is just another of the beneficial trace minerals that Real Salt users love for their flavor and health benefits.
