Top 6 Essential Health Benefits of Sea Salt

Salt has been used as a natural flavoring for thousands of years, and it’s so vital to our existence that we’ve even been created with a portion of our tongues designated to taste saltiness. I did a Daniel fast last year and eliminated salt from my diet completely for 10 days, and everything I ate tasted completely bland. During that time, it made me realize how essential salt is to our lives and caused me to spend some extra hours researching all of the many uses and benefits of sea salt.

As I’m sure you’re aware, salt is seen as a very unhealthy substance by many organizations, such as the American Heart Association, and I understand why. I’m not saying you should start shoveling salt into your mouth, but I want to clarify that there is a major difference between processed table salt and real sea salt. A true, unrefined sea salt actually supports the human body in essential ways and can truly be an awesome health promoter.


6 Health Benefits of Sea Salt

If we’re talking about real salt like Celtic Sea Salt® or pink Himalayan salt, it has many benefits and should be used daily. Why? Because of the life-giving nutrition sea salt contains, including:

1. Rich in Trace Minerals

High-quality sea salts typically contain 60 trace minerals. In the case of Himalayan sea salt, the number is said to be 84. Either way, sea salts are a great source of minerals.

It’s become harder and harder to obtain trace minerals from the foods we eat due to the lack of nutrient-rich soil. However, trace minerals are still abundant in our planet’s seas and oceans, from which we get a variety of sea salts. (1)

2. Helps Avoid Dehydration and Balance Fluids

Here’s how sodium works within the body: Essentially, water follows salt, which means if you increase sodium too much, water retention also occurs. At the same time, the opposite is also true: A loss in sodium results in a loss in water, potentially causing dehydration and extreme thirst.

By consuming sea salt daily, you also ensure that you maintain sufficient sodium levels, and this helps balance your sodium-potassium ratios. Sodium and potassium are two electrolytes that work together to ensure that there is proper fluid balance in your body’s cells as well as your blood plasma and extracellular fluid. (2)

3.  Excellent Electrolyte Source

The minimal processing of unrefined sea salt enables it to retain much of its natural mineral content. Sea can contains many of the major electrolytes, like sodium, magnesium, calcium and potassium, that are absolutely essential to good health. (3)

Electrolytes have so many important functions — from regulating your heartbeat to allowing your muscles to contract so you can move. Sea salt in moderation can help in avoiding an electrolyte imbalance, which can cause all kinds of serious negative symptoms, including some that are potentially deadly.

4. Proper Brain, Muscle and Nervous System Function

As a provider of sodium, sea salt is not just good for — it’s essential for proper brain, muscle and nervous system function. As I already said, sodium is a regulator of water in your body. It’s also required for the transmission of electrical signals in the body. Why is this so important? Without the proper transmission of electrical signals in the body, so many things can get thrown off.

Without this communication system working as it should, the brain, muscles and nervous systems are especially inclined to suffer. Both too much and too little sodium cause cellular malfunction. So as much as you hear about making sure you don’t get too much salt in your diet, it’s also absolutely just as important to make sure we get enough. (4)

5. Digestive Health Aid

Not getting enough salt in your diet can actually negatively impact your digestive health. If you don’t get enough salt in your diet, it can lead to your body not producing enough hydrochloric acid (HCL) in your stomach. If you have low stomach acid, it can seriously throw off your digestive system. Consuming the right amount of sea salt helps your body produce proper amounts of HCL since sea salt provides chloride, which is the building block of stomach acid.

6. Nutrient Enhancer

Having enough stomach acid also helps our bodies to absorb vitamins and minerals like calcium, zinc, iron, folate and B12. So consuming a high-quality sea salt regularly can help your body absorb more nutrients from the foods that you eat. This is great news since it’s not only what you eat, but how your body processes what you eat, that gives your body the nutrients it needs on a daily basis.


What Is Sea Salt?

All salts (even table salt) originate from a sea or salty body of water, but not all salts on the market today actually come from the oceans in existence today. What does that mean? Salts that are not sea salt are derived from underground salt deposits left behind by seawater at some point.

Sea salt is a type of salt produced from the evaporation of current seawater. The evaporation is accomplished by either open-air solar evaporation or by a quicker vacuum evaporation process. Some of the pricier sea salts available today often come from the slower sun-fueled evaporation method. When you eat a sea salt that has experienced very little processing, you have a salt that contains health-promoting trace minerals. (5) It also has natural flavors and colors that make it a lot tastier and more interesting to use for cooking as well as homemade beauty products.

Sea salt can be either unrefined or refined. I encourage you to look for unrefined sea salt, which has more of its inherent health properties. Refined sea salt is washed to strip it of its trace minerals. You also don’t want a sea salt that lists “sodium chloride” as its main ingredient because this means it’s just as refined as table salt.

Also beware of additives when purchasing sea salt. Unfortunately, some commercial producers of sea salt include health-hazardous additives in their final product, and certain food additives trigger leaky gut.


Types of Sea Salt

Two of my favorite varieties of sea salt are Himalayan sea salt and Celtic Sea Salt®. There are many other varieties since there are so many salty bodies of water that sea salt can be derived from.

Himalayan Sea Salt

Many believe Himalayan sea salt is the purest salt available on the planet. With a history dating back to Earth’s creation, it’s believed to be composed of dried remnants of the original, primal sea.

Known as “pink gold,” Himalayan crystal salt is actually a beautiful translucent pink and contains all of the 84 elements found in your body. Because of the amazing nutrient load, doctors of functional medicine report that regularly eating Himalayan salt can help:

  • Regulate the water content throughout your body
  • Promote healthy pH balance in your cells (particularly your brain cells)
  • Promote blood sugar health and can help reduce the signs of aging
  • Assist in the generation of hydroelectric energy in cells in your body
  • Absorb food particles through your intestinal tract
  • Support respiratory health
  • Promote sinus health
  • Prevent muscle cramps
  • Promote bone strength
  • Regulate your sleep
  • Support your libido
  • Promote vascular health
  • Regulate your blood pressure with sufficient water and potassium intake

Celtic Sea Salt®

Another ancient commodity, Celtic Sea Salt® is comparable to Himalayan crystal salt in its composition and health benefits. Being of a grayish hue, it is naturally harvested in Brittany, France, near the Celtic Sea using a 2,000-year-old Celtic method that is crucial to preserving its life-giving nutrition profile.

It’s been reported that Celtic Sea Salt® is powerfully beneficial for your health and can help:

  1. Alkalize the body
  2. Balance blood sugars
  3. Eliminate mucus buildup
  4. Build immunity
  5. Improve brain function
  6. Increase energy
  7. Provide electrolyte balance
  8. Promote restful sleep
  9. Prevent muscle cramps
  10. Regulate heartbeat and blood pressure

Interestingly, this salt retains its moisture and is moist to touch, in spite of how you store it. Think of this as a gentle reminder of its ocean source and continual life-giving properties.

Other sea salt options include:

  • Fleur de Sel or  Flor de Sal: French or Portuguese for “flower of salt,” this sea salt gets its name from the patterns of crystals that resemble flowers. This is a salt that forms as a thin, fragile crust on seawater’s surface  as it evaporates. Traditionally, it was used as a salve and laxative, but today it’s most commonly used for cooking as a finishing salt.
  • Flake Sea Salt (or Flaky Sea Salt): This variety of sea salt can be formed naturally or produced by a variety of methods. Most flake sea salts have thin, flattened crystals that provide more surface area with less mass resulting in a quick-dissolving and crunchy salt. It’s said that flake sea salt has a saltier taste but lower trace mineral content than other sea salts. (6)
  • Hawaiian Sea Salt: Hawaiian or Alaea sea salt is a traditional Hawaiian salt. Alae is a natural red volcanic clay that is added to enrich the salt with iron oxide, and it also gives this sea salt its distinctive red color. Real Hawaiian salt is pricey and hard to find outside of Hawaii. (7)
  • Italian Sea Salt: This sea salt is derived from the Mediterranean Sea along the coast of Sicily.

Sea Salt vs. Table Salt

Table salt is mainly mined from underground salt deposits. It’s heavily processed to eliminate healthy minerals. Table “salt” is manufactured by taking natural salt (such as crude oil flake leftovers) and heating it to 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit. During this extreme process, the chemical composition is completely altered, and all of the nutritional benefits are destroyed.

In the end, generic table “salt” ends up being about 97.5 percent sodium chloride and a 2.5 percent balance containing an array of ingredients, including: (8)

  • Anti-caking chemicals
  • Iodine to prevent goiters
  • MSG and/or white processed sugar to help stabilize the iodine
  • And aluminum derivatives, such as sodium silico-aluminate

There are actually 18 food additives that are allowed to be put into table salt. Trust me when I tell you that no one really knows what’s in this stuff, and calling it “salt” is a complete misrepresentation.

Ultimately, this processed “fake” salt puts people at risk of developing cardiovascular events and chronic disease because of elevated blood pressure and arteriosclerosis. Unlike real salt, processed “salt” causes your body to retain fluids. Subsequently, it should be no surprise that people who use these products develop diabetes, gout and obesity more than people who don’t.

Additionally, most table “salt” is iodized and puts people at risk for over-iodization, which has been shown to abnormally enlarge the thyroid gland and cause thyroid problems, such as thyroid-related autoimmune disorders. Excess iodine in the diet can also lead to nausea, headaches and unhealthy hormone levels.

So when the American Heart Association says that salt is bad for you, I strongly believe that this is correct when referring to table “salt,” but not a high-quality unrefined sea salt.


History of Sea Salt

Salt has always been essential to human life since humans need dietary salt in order to survive. The production of sea salt has been dated all the way back to prehistoric times. Since all salt either comes from dead, dried-up seas or living seas, the history of salt is equivalent to the history of sea salt.

In the sub-Sahara in the 6th century, Moorish merchants regularly traded prized salt in equal amounts (by weight) for gold. Later in 1295, the explorer Marco Polo returned from his travels telling stories of the highly impressive value of salt coins bearing the seal of the Great Khan of the Mongol empire. There were salt trade routes all over the world with the most popular one leading from Morocco south across the Sahara to Timbuktu.

The history of human civilization is said to be directly linked to salt. How so? Animals would create paths to salt licks, men would follow turning trails into roads and settlements would grow beside these roads. As civilizations grew around the world, salt continued to be one of the main items used for trade. (9)

Solnitsata was Europe’s earliest known town, and it was constructed around a salt production facility. According to archaeologists, Solnitsata accumulated wealth by supplying salt throughout the Balkan Peninsula. (10)


Seal Salt Precautions

Even though sea salt has health benefits, you don’t want to overdo it. Use sea salt in moderation.

If your diet is too high in sodium, then more water is excreted by the kidneys, and this can cause complications with balancing other essential electrolytes. Symptoms of having too much sea salt include bloating, lethargy, dehydration, weakness, irritability and muscle twitching.

Hypernatremia occurs when there’s an imbalance of sodium and water in your body. This condition is more common among infants who have a low intake of breastmilk or an intake of formula that was not mixed properly, older adults, people with diabetes or kidney problems, severe burn patients, people who take diuretics, and those who eat heavily processed diets. Symptoms can include intense thirst, headache, confusion, irritability, restlessness and drowsiness. Seek medical attention immediately if you think you may be experiencing hypernatremia. (11)


Final Thoughts on Sea Salt

Always aim to skip the salt found in processed and packaged foods. That’s the kind of salt that causes problems. Sea salt, on the other hand, in moderate amounts daily is truly an awesome health booster in multiple ways.

Sea salt is also preferred over table salt by many people (especially in the culinary world) because it’s more flavorful. When you opt for a high-quality sea salt, you can actually use the salt shaker guilt-free. You can enjoy how tasty sea salt makes your food while it positively impacts your health — now that’s a win-win situation.

    I eat celtic sea salt every day and it is my primary source of salt. I use it liberally. It is foundational to proper nutrition and is a superfood. It is especially essential that thecword get out to everyone who has been placed on low sodium diets that this is very dangerous. As long as the provenance of the salt consumed is pristine raw sea salt, they can bring their bodies back into harmony and begin to detoxify.

  2. Oma Fatima says:

    How do we take celtic sea salt or himalayan salt? How much is enough for a day? Who can take it?

  3. Jennifer says:

    When we use the Celtic or Himalyan Salt in cooking, are the minerals destroyed by the heat?

  4. titi says:

    Can Himalyan Salt help decrease heartbeat and blood pressure? Is it also beneficial for eczema?

  5. angelique says:

    hello i would like to know if sea salt is good for inflammation, like for lupus! id like more info on how to heal lupus. treat. help. thank you. also do you know if niagen is good and also what is mitochondira? (cell) i read something about those two things yesterday and thought of asking you.

  6. Cathy says:

    Hi, does this salt help with CLL? Is there anything else that can help some one with CLL? I heard Tumeric and Red Korean Ginseng helps with CLL, how much should some one take? Please help!

  7. Sars says:

    I have mild gastritis. I have low sodium levels too? Which salt do you prefer for my condition?
    Can I switch completely to any one of the salts including cooking? What abt the iodine content?

    • I thinking using sea salt or Himalayan salt are both great options! I would also stop drinking soda, coffee, gluten, grains and dairy as these may exacerbate your symptoms. I would start consuming a probiotic supplement and probiotic rich foods.

  8. josh says:

    My fiance has been diagnosed with pcos which quickly caused type 2 diabetes and she’s only 20. She loves to salt her food as well which i have been against until now researching natural salt. Any recommendations on which salt is a better choice?

  9. Oralia says:

    I am a personal chef and have always used Kosher salt while preparing my food, there really is a difference in how the food tastes when I use this salt. From a cooking prospective, this salt is in diamond form and penetrates the food better and thus leads to the Maillard process. I have cooked w/sea salt, and it just does not give the same flavor to food. Of course, even when I used Kosher salt, I then finish w/Himalayan salt at the table. So, I would like to know if Kosher salt is as bad for you as table salt?

    I very often crave salt and then sugar. I find that there is just not enough salt to please my palate. What I can do about this? So I have gone back to cooking w/Sea salt, but I wonder if cooking w/this, or Himalayan salt destroys the health benefits of it.

    Thank you in advance for your response, oh, one last thing, when I don’t get enough salt in my food, I get dizzy so apparently I’m not using enough salt, I can feel it.

    Oralia

  10. Diane says:

    What about Mediterranean Sea salt? The package says it is harvested on the west coast of Sicily.

  11. Edmond says:

    Witch salt you recomend me to use? Celtic or Himalayan one? What if i mix them booth?

  12. Eileen says:

    What about Redman’s Real Salt ( a fine texture sea salt)? Same benefits as Celtic or Himalayan?

  13. Jenna says:

    How about for gastritis, sibo, and crohns with severely low thyroid… I know fun huh? I feel so salt sensitive.. I swell up but crave it often. Is there a possible way to be salt sensitive even if it is the good stuff? For what it is worth I am already nut egg dairy grain and sugar /fruit free.

  14. Carol says:

    You cannot get to much iodine from table salt. The lowest amount taken should be 12.5 mg to 50 mg. My health did not improve until I added natural salt and iodine. My husbands also.

    • Don says:

      I also have read that iodine is an essential nutrient and that no restaurant or fast food place has iodized salt so the only place to get it would be iodized table salt from the supermarket (or vitamin supplements)

  15. Organic_Beast_2015 says:

    I’ve had a long history with gout inflammation and part of this inflammation was due to over-consumption of refined sugars, more specificly the fructose monosaccharide portion of HFCS and sucrose table sugar, which promoted insulin and leptin resistant metabolic syndromes within my body.

    Six months ago I was 258 lbs with 30% bodyfat and was considered, according to BMI charts, severely obese, but visually, I just looked like a bodybuilder that was in constant bulking season. I decided to delve into a paleolithic diet composed mainly of the basic foods of our ancestors, theoretically speaking of course (before the agricultural revolution), and my weight slightly dropped but was still fluctuating like the stock market.

    I decided in the last 3 months to go completely into ketosis. Of course one must do extensive research before jumping into something as extreme as keto-adaptation (see Dr. Peter Attia’s personal keto-diet lab experiment and statistical data on his own body.) Once I entered keto-mode, my weight dropped significantly and the bodyfat began melting off.

    I’m currently sitting at a modest 19.2% bodyfat and 198 lbs in weight. I plan on losing more weight into the 175 lb zone before I begin doing any aesthetic promoting activities such as weight training and HIIT, and yes, I do plan slowly and gradually increasing glucose (not fructose) intake to promote and recover glycogen stores from anaerobic workouts.

    I know this entire paragraph had little to do with the thesis of this article, but I do want to point out that you’re correct on the anti-caking agents. Those do promote inflammation and are not only contained in processed tabled salt. They’re also contained in your powdered onion and garlic, so be careful. I bought some cheap onion and garlic powder this past week and used it on some grilled tilapia and low-and-behold, a mild gout flare-up appeared overnight.

  18. Rodney says:

    All salt is sea salt. Himalayan’ Celtic and any others you care to mention have just gone through a process caused by movement in the earth, volcanic eruptions etc, that have crystallized them and in that process mixed them with minerals and metals. You forget to mention that Himalayan salt especially, the metals can be radio active. A poor write up not giving the full facts.

  19. Michelle says:

    I started using Celtic salt a few months ago – before knowing about it’s benefits. I just love it. I love ti so much I crave it, which leads me to believe it’s satisfying something that has been lacking or out of balance in my body.
    When i read the health benefits, I realized those are some problems I struggle with– blood sugar, low immunity, fatigue, etc.
    I liked the Himalayan but my body really loves the Celtic.

  20. Dorothy says:

    where can I buy the himalayan and celtic sea salts?

  21. Carolyn says:

    Good Day, I have to add my 2 cents worth….I started using the Celtic Sea Salt about a year ago and have to say I noticed that we use less salt and the Celtic Sea Salt doesn’t have that extreme salty flavor like table salt….I buy the coarse grind and grind mine in a mortar & pedestal ….it is wonderful!!…thank your for all the info on these wonderful salts…..

  22. Diana says:

    How are sea salts taken? Can I take both celtic and himalayan salts together?

  23. Diana says:

    Can I use both celtic and himalayan salts together? What is the best way to consume salts other than cooking,is having a glass of warm salt water every morning recommended?

    • You can use both together. You should get enough salt in the foods you eat daily without having to add it to your water unless you are exercising in warm conditions and sweating very frequently.

      • Isabel says:

        Whether or not you get enough salt in your diet really depends on each persons diet, no? If you eat at home, prepare your own food, steer clear of salted meats and processed foods, or even eat vegan and a largely vegetable diet, you would likely not consume that much sodium. If you have low BP versus high BP, your need for salt might be different. For me, the discovery of pink H salt after most of a lifetime on a very healthy diet has been a life-changing addition to my diet, including salt water. Brain fog, muscle cramps, diagnoses of CFS, hypothyroidism, etc., and two decades of no energy when all I needed was a regular salt intake? How I wish I knew that 20 years ago!

  24. desiree says:

    I have been using Himalayan pink sea salt in the grinder for about a year. I can sure tell the difference. I haven’t really changed my eating habit just my salt habit and I have lost a lot of water weight. I was using regular table salt and I was weighing in at 300 pounds with swollin ankles puffy fingers it hurt to walk. So I did some research and seen that sea salt was good for you so I bought it then I seen the pink Himalayan sea salt and switched only because it was pink and I love pink. I only use it in my cooking and don’t add any salt after I’m done cooking I am one year later at 260pounds ankles are not swollin and I have lost water weight in my fingers that I can know we’re my wedding ring and it slips off occasionally. Now I love this product so much that I got each of my family members a pink Himalayan sea salt grinder.

  25. Patrick says:

    My mother has heart problems and is on warfarin. is the “hain” celtic sea salt beneficial for her. The salt has iodide in it.

  26. David says:

    A few weeks ago I came across someone testified how she used sea salt to cure simple trauma, something that has troubled me for many years. I decided to try this sea salt. First I bought Mediterranean sea salt at Walmart and could not fine the rest like Celtic or Himalayan. Every day I placed a pinch on my tongue and waited for it to dissolve. After a week I began to notice great result. I can assure you I feel much better. My whole body has been transformed and I am now using but sea salt with lot of water drinking. Believe me it works.

    • Nancy Teliski says:

      David:

      It sounds like maybe you are doing the “WaterCure”?
      I do this everyday, I start my morning out with 1/8 tsp of Pink Himalayan salt and let it dissolve on my tongue, then follow with a glass of warm pure non flouride structured water with fresh organic lemon juice.
      I drink six 16 oz glasses a day altering between Pink Himalayan salt and Celtic salt.
      The results have been life changing to say the least, so much that my young daughter tried it when she felt run down and was amazed how quickly she bounced back to her old energetic self!

  27. Lecia says:

    I would like to switch from table salt to sea salt but worry about not getting enough iodine or too much. How can I ensure that I am getting enough iodine and not too much sodium?

    • Joel says:

      If iodoized salt is your only source of iodine, belive me your not getting enough. Search and read the research table salt contains just enough to prevent goiter and thats it the officials say we only need 250mcg a day. Truly we need closer to 12.5 mg a day.

  28. Janelle says:

    Where do I purchase Celtic sea salt? What brand is recommended?

    • Ariane says:

      selinanaturally.com is the owners of the Celtic Sea Salt brand and the experts! They have helped me so many times. They are a small family business out of NC that has been selling it for 40 years!

      • Aloisio Correia says:

        Hi, I am in search for just “IODIZED CELTIC SEA SALT”. I went to “Selina Naturally” site but their products don’t have
        Iodo, an essential mineral for proper thyroid functions in the body. We all human beings need IODO.

        Please. can someone tell me where to buy the salt above? I live in Maryland, zip code 21784. I do have a “Wegmans”
        Market, Whole Food, and Trader Joe’s, but I still not been able to find it.

        Thank you for your help!

  29. Marissa says:

    Wondering about heavy metals in these salts? Lots of confusing info about this topic.

  30. DavetteB says:

    I have used both and find that the Celtic salt tastes ‘salty’ so I do not need to use as much. Himalayan is a little less expensive where I live so I use it more often. When I share recipes, I recommend for people to use either Celtic sea salt or the Himalayan. One of my Jewish friends says they only use the Kosher salt to process meat to remove the blood; they don’t use it for cooking or at the table.

  31. Annette says:

    I heard that Himalayan sea salt contains trace amounts of lead. No amount of lead is safe for the human body.. If this is true it doesn’t seem like a good option to me even though it contains many other beneficial nutrients.

    • Joe R says:

      All foods contain “trace amounts” of contaminants but the good outweigh the bad in it. You would be surprised if you knew all the contaminants you eat in your food every day, in trace amounts.

    Himalayan Crystal Salt is the most beneficial, cleanest salt available on the planet. It was formed about 230 million years ago where the energy of sun has dried up the original, primal sea.

    You are correct on many subjects in this article, except for giant mistake. When you refrenced iodine you said ”most table “salt” is iodized and puts people at risk for over-iodization, which has been shown to abnormally enlarge the thyroid gland and cause thyroid-related autoimmune disorders.” This information is completely incorect and their is a tone of research to prove otherwise. If this comment were true why is it that most of the population in the U.S. is so depleted in iodine. Iodine is an essential mineral for proper thyroid function when pared with selenium and atp cofactor it can stabilize thyroid function and many other functions in the body. I appreciate the info on this post, but please be more cautious when speaking of something as important as iodine. The truth is the standards of iodine are way to low measured in mcg. When the truth is we should be consuming at least 12.5 mg of iodine daily in our diet. The research is out their all you have do is a quick google search of iodine protocol and you will see its many benefits

    I buy Celtic Sea Salt from Whole Foods. I have been using it in my cooking for the past year, and absolutely love the taste. After having been on high blood pressure medication for four years, I have been taken off of them by my doctor. I am still stunned by this because the only change to my diet regime has been the use of this salt. If you have high blood pressure, I highly recommend changing your cooking salt to the Celtic Sea Salt. It’s working for me!

    I eat celtic sea salt every day and it is my primary source of salt. I use it liberally. It is foundational to proper nutrition and is a superfood. It is especially essential that thecword get out to everyone who has been placed on low sodium diets that this is very dangerous. As long as the provenance of the salt consumed is pristine raw sea salt, they can bring their bodies back into harmony and begin to detoxify.

  2. Oma Fatima says:

    How do we take celtic sea salt or himalayan salt? How much is enough for a day? Who can take it?

  3. Jennifer says:

    When we use the Celtic or Himalyan Salt in cooking, are the minerals destroyed by the heat?

    Can Himalyan Salt help decrease heartbeat and blood pressure? Is it also beneficial for eczema?

    hello i would like to know if sea salt is good for inflammation, like for lupus! id like more info on how to heal lupus. treat. help. thank you. also do you know if niagen is good and also what is mitochondira? (cell) i read something about those two things yesterday and thought of asking you.

  6. Cathy says:

    Hi, does this salt help with CLL? Is there anything else that can help some one with CLL? I heard Tumeric and Red Korean Ginseng helps with CLL, how much should some one take? Please help!

  7. Sars says:

    I have mild gastritis. I have low sodium levels too? Which salt do you prefer for my condition?
    Can I switch completely to any one of the salts including cooking? What abt the iodine content?

    • I thinking using sea salt or Himalayan salt are both great options! I would also stop drinking soda, coffee, gluten, grains and dairy as these may exacerbate your symptoms. I would start consuming a probiotic supplement and probiotic rich foods.

  8. josh says:

    My fiance has been diagnosed with pcos which quickly caused type 2 diabetes and she’s only 20. She loves to salt her food as well which i have been against until now researching natural salt. Any recommendations on which salt is a better choice?

  9. Oralia says:

    I am a personal chef and have always used Kosher salt while preparing my food, there really is a difference in how the food tastes when I use this salt. From a cooking prospective, this salt is in diamond form and penetrates the food better and thus leads to the Maillard process. I have cooked w/sea salt, and it just does not give the same flavor to food. Of course, even when I used Kosher salt, I then finish w/Himalayan salt at the table. So, I would like to know if Kosher salt is as bad for you as table salt?

    I very often crave salt and then sugar. I find that there is just not enough salt to please my palate. What I can do about this? So I have gone back to cooking w/Sea salt, but I wonder if cooking w/this, or Himalayan salt destroys the health benefits of it.

    Thank you in advance for your response, oh, one last thing, when I don’t get enough salt in my food, I get dizzy so apparently I’m not using enough salt, I can feel it.

    How about for gastritis, sibo, and crohns with severely low thyroid… I know fun huh? I feel so salt sensitive.. I swell up but crave it often. Is there a possible way to be salt sensitive even if it is the good stuff? For what it is worth I am already nut egg dairy grain and sugar /fruit free.

  14. Carol says:

    You cannot get to much iodine from table salt. The lowest amount taken should be 12.5 mg to 50 mg. My health did not improve until I added natural salt and iodine. My husbands also.

    • Don says:

      I also have read that iodine is an essential nutrient and that no restaurant or fast food place has iodized salt so the only place to get it would be iodized table salt from the supermarket (or vitamin supplements)

  15. Organic_Beast_2015 says:

    I’ve had a long history with gout inflammation and part of this inflammation was due to over-consumption of refined sugars, more specificly the fructose monosaccharide portion of HFCS and sucrose table sugar, which promoted insulin and leptin resistant metabolic syndromes within my body.

    Six months ago I was 258 lbs with 30% bodyfat and was considered, according to BMI charts, severely obese, but visually, I just looked like a bodybuilder that was in constant bulking season. I decided to delve into a paleolithic diet composed mainly of the basic foods of our ancestors, theoretically speaking of course (before the agricultural revolution), and my weight slightly dropped but was still fluctuating like the stock market.

    I decided in the last 3 months to go completely into ketosis. Of course one must do extensive research before jumping into something as extreme as keto-adaptation (see Dr. Peter Attia’s personal keto-diet lab experiment and statistical data on his own body.) Once I entered keto-mode, my weight dropped significantly and the bodyfat began melting off.

    I’m currently sitting at a modest 19.2% bodyfat and 198 lbs in weight. I plan on losing more weight into the 175 lb zone before I begin doing any aesthetic promoting activities such as weight training and HIIT, and yes, I do plan slowly and gradually increasing glucose (not fructose) intake to promote and recover glycogen stores from anaerobic workouts.

    I know this entire paragraph had little to do with the thesis of this article, but I do want to point out that you’re correct on the anti-caking agents. Those do promote inflammation and are not only contained in processed tabled salt. They’re also contained in your powdered onion and garlic, so be careful. I bought some cheap onion and garlic powder this past week and used it on some grilled tilapia and low-and-behold, a mild gout flare-up appeared overnight.

  18. Rodney says:

    All salt is sea salt. Himalayan’ Celtic and any others you care to mention have just gone through a process caused by movement in the earth, volcanic eruptions etc, that have crystallized them and in that process mixed them with minerals and metals. You forget to mention that Himalayan salt especially, the metals can be radio active. A poor write up not giving the full facts.

  19. Michelle says:

    I started using Celtic salt a few months ago – before knowing about it’s benefits. I just love it. I love ti so much I crave it, which leads me to believe it’s satisfying something that has been lacking or out of balance in my body.
    When i read the health benefits, I realized those are some problems I struggle with– blood sugar, low immunity, fatigue, etc.
    I liked the Himalayan but my body really loves the Celtic.

  20. Dorothy says:

    where can I buy the himalayan and celtic sea salts?

  21. Carolyn says:

    Good Day, I have to add my 2 cents worth….I started using the Celtic Sea Salt about a year ago and have to say I noticed that we use less salt and the Celtic Sea Salt doesn’t have that extreme salty flavor like table salt….I buy the coarse grind and grind mine in a mortar & pedestal ….it is wonderful!!…thank your for all the info on these wonderful salts…..

  22. Diana says:

    How are sea salts taken? Can I take both celtic and himalayan salts together?

  23. Diana says:

    Can I use both celtic and himalayan salts together? What is the best way to consume salts other than cooking,is having a glass of warm salt water every morning recommended?

    • You can use both together. You should get enough salt in the foods you eat daily without having to add it to your water unless you are exercising in warm conditions and sweating very frequently.

      • Isabel says:

        Whether or not you get enough salt in your diet really depends on each persons diet, no? If you eat at home, prepare your own food, steer clear of salted meats and processed foods, or even eat vegan and a largely vegetable diet, you would likely not consume that much sodium. If you have low BP versus high BP, your need for salt might be different. For me, the discovery of pink H salt after most of a lifetime on a very healthy diet has been a life-changing addition to my diet, including salt water. Brain fog, muscle cramps, diagnoses of CFS, hypothyroidism, etc., and two decades of no energy when all I needed was a regular salt intake? How I wish I knew that 20 years ago!

  24. desiree says:

    I have been using Himalayan pink sea salt in the grinder for about a year. I can sure tell the difference. I haven’t really changed my eating habit just my salt habit and I have lost a lot of water weight. I was using regular table salt and I was weighing in at 300 pounds with swollin ankles puffy fingers it hurt to walk. So I did some research and seen that sea salt was good for you so I bought it then I seen the pink Himalayan sea salt and switched only because it was pink and I love pink. I only use it in my cooking and don’t add any salt after I’m done cooking I am one year later at 260pounds ankles are not swollin and I have lost water weight in my fingers that I can know we’re my wedding ring and it slips off occasionally. Now I love this product so much that I got each of my family members a pink Himalayan sea salt grinder.

  25. Patrick says:

    My mother has heart problems and is on warfarin. is the “hain” celtic sea salt beneficial for her. The salt has iodide in it.

  26. David says:

    A few weeks ago I came across someone testified how she used sea salt to cure simple trauma, something that has troubled me for many years. I decided to try this sea salt. First I bought Mediterranean sea salt at Walmart and could not fine the rest like Celtic or Himalayan. Every day I placed a pinch on my tongue and waited for it to dissolve. After a week I began to notice great result. I can assure you I feel much better. My whole body has been transformed and I am now using but sea salt with lot of water drinking. Believe me it works.

    • Nancy Teliski says:

      David:

      It sounds like maybe you are doing the “WaterCure”?
      I do this everyday, I start my morning out with 1/8 tsp of Pink Himalayan salt and let it dissolve on my tongue, then follow with a glass of warm pure non flouride structured water with fresh organic lemon juice.
      I drink six 16 oz glasses a day altering between Pink Himalayan salt and Celtic salt.
      The results have been life changing to say the least, so much that my young daughter tried it when she felt run down and was amazed how quickly she bounced back to her old energetic self!

  27. Lecia says:

    I would like to switch from table salt to sea salt but worry about not getting enough iodine or too much. How can I ensure that I am getting enough iodine and not too much sodium?

    • Joel says:

      If iodoized salt is your only source of iodine, belive me your not getting enough. Search and read the research table salt contains just enough to prevent goiter and thats it the officials say we only need 250mcg a day. Truly we need closer to 12.5 mg a day.

    Where do I purchase Celtic sea salt? What brand is recommended?

      selinanaturally.com is the owners of the Celtic Sea Salt brand and the experts! They have helped me so many times. They are a small family business out of NC that has been selling it for 40 years!

        Hi, I am in search for just “IODIZED CELTIC SEA SALT”. I went to “Selina Naturally” site but their products don’t have
        Iodo, an essential mineral for proper thyroid functions in the body. We all human beings need IODO.

        Please. can someone tell me where to buy the salt above? I live in Maryland, zip code 21784. I do have a “Wegmans”
        Market, Whole Food, and Trader Joe’s, but I still not been able to find it.

  29. Marissa says:

    Wondering about heavy metals in these salts? Lots of confusing info about this topic.

  30. DavetteB says:

    I have used both and find that the Celtic salt tastes ‘salty’ so I do not need to use as much. Himalayan is a little less expensive where I live so I use it more often. When I share recipes, I recommend for people to use either Celtic sea salt or the Himalayan. One of my Jewish friends says they only use the Kosher salt to process meat to remove the blood; they don’t use it for cooking or at the table.

  31. Annette says:

    I heard that Himalayan sea salt contains trace amounts of lead. No amount of lead is safe for the human body.. If this is true it doesn’t seem like a good option to me even though it contains many other beneficial nutrients.

    • Joe R says:

      All foods contain “trace amounts” of contaminants but the good outweigh the bad in it. You would be surprised if you knew all the contaminants you eat in your food every day, in trace amounts.
