Just like our post on essential minerals we just aren’t getting everything we need from the foods we eat.
The right kind of salt can remineralize our bodies, assist with alkalization and help us lose weight, sleep better, improve skin tone and digestive and nervous system health.
Table salt is heated to 1200 degrees to help with the manufacturing process and than has additives like anti caking agents.
There is nothing wrong with good quality salt, (Not Table Salt Which Does Cause Problems) and it is a myth that it raises blood pressure. The himalayan salt pictured has 84 essential minerals our bodies need.
Improve your metabolism with better salts like the pink himalayan salt in the video. Loaded with minerals this salt can actually help you lose weight. When you ingest himalayan salt it activates you digestive system so your metabolism improves and you will lose weight.

The more common “refined” table salts have been been stripped of their minerals during processing, which manufacturers then sell to supplement companies. It makes the unmistakable point that the producers of table salts are intentionally stripping what they know to be the most nutritious part of the salt, and actually increasing profits by malnourishing their own customers.
Table salt has all of its minerals removed, which would otherwise help to balance the blood pressure. Consequently, table salt causes gross blood pressure fluctuations, instead of stabilizing it. This well-known danger has created an entire industry of “low sodium” foods.
Processed foods are very high in sodium, but it is always in the form of table salt, artificial flavors, or flavor enhancers. In the ultimate heart-health irony, low sodium products often contain monosodium glutamate, a sodium-based excitotoxin that causes heart attacks in people who do not have enough magnesium (from organic vegetables and sea salt). It is probably the most common reason for mysterious heart failures in young athletes, who simply fall-over dead at sporting events. The profuse sweating imbalances their electrolytes even further, to become the final straw on the camel’s back.
Contrary to popular belief, table salt is not just sodium chloride. It also contains additives that are designed to make it more free-flowing. Ferrocyanide, talc, and silica aluminate are commonly included. Aluminum intake leads to neurological disorders, particularly when no selenium is provided to help the body to chelate it. Aluminum bio-accumulates inside the body, causing further degeneration over time. Talc is a known carcinogen, though its effects upon ingestion have not been heavily studied. While it was once used in baby powders, the majority of such products now use cornstarch instead of talc, because of the known health risks. The F.D.A. has a special provision to allow talc in table salt, even whilst it is prohibited in all other foods, due to toxicity issues. According to current regulations, table salt can be up to 2% talc.
