Use a mixture of sea salt, rock salt and iodised table salt to maximise health benefits of salt
Given a slightly elevated blood pressure I decided to review the potential issues, and one of them seems to be the KIND of salt one consumes.
Not all salts are equal. I've checked and found that both rock salt and unprocessed sea salt are BETTER for the body than ordinary table salt.
1. Sea water contains a vast number of elements in addition to salt. Sea salt contains about eighty mineral elements that the body needs. Some of these elements are needed in trace amounts.Sea salt is not rich in iodine, which needs to be taken as a supplement.
2. Salt essentially comes from sea water but processing reduces, if not eliminates the trace elements. (I've read this in numerous places but not found conclusive proof)
3, Unprocessed sea salt and rock salts contain a WIDE RANGE of trace chemicals that are crucial to body functioning, and which may be found in other food, but there can only be a benefit in adding what is NATURALLY found.
Use a mixture of sea salt, rock salt and iodised table salt to maximise health benefits of salt.
"Now I lick sea salt off my palm in the morning before my first glass of water and use salt liberally. I drink about 1.5 gallons of water a day and take some supplements as well as eating a lot of whole grains, and fresh fruits and vegetables. My waist used to be a size 43 and now is a size 36. I weighed 249 pounds; now I weigh 210 and have solid muscle mass. My complexion and appearance are those of a man in his early thirties and my potency of a man in his twenties. My ankles are no longer swollen and new pulses, yes, new pulses, have developed where once they were dead. I no longer take any medications for all those problems, whereas I used to be on at least 15 prescriptions at a time. My insulin needs are down from 95 units a day to 35-45 units a day. I no longer suffer with “chronic infections” or fatigue —I sleep 6-8 hours a day instead of 12-14." [Batman’s book on water: Batman = Batmanghelidj]
