The Truth: About Salt

Posted on July 20, 2010. Filed under: Articles on Health | Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Do you know, how important Salt is for the body?

Salt is a vital substance for the survival of all living creatures, particularly humans.

Water and salt regulate the water content of the body.  Water itself regulates the water content of the interior of the cell by working its way into all of the cells it reaches to cleanse and extract the toxic wastes.  Salt forces some water to stay outside the cells.

Another way to explain this is that there are two oceans of water in the body; one ocean is held inside the cells of the body, and the other ocean is held outside the cells and Good health depends on a most delicate balance between the volume of these oceans, and this balance is achieved by SALT.

Salt is also crucial for the extraction of excess acidity from the cells in the body, particularly the brain cells. Salt is very important for the generation of hydroelectric energy in the cells in the body.

Do you know, Common Table Salt you buy from your grocery store is completely Bleached and Leached of all its minerals. Common Table Salt also includes additives including aluminum silicate (to make it free flowing), dextrose, bleaching elements, and other chemicals, making it POISONOUS for the body?


The WRONG type of salt is common table salt you get, its often labeled as  “ free flowing”  or “refined salt” or “iodized salt”.

The RIGHT type of salt is Natural salt that is unrefined crystal Rock salt.

You can find this at any health shop near you. In India most people call it “Sendha Namak” it is very light pinkish to white in color, and powdered from the crystal, make sure you check it says unrefined.

Crystal rock salt contains 84 of the 92 trace minerals known to man, and no other natural or man-made salt has this many minerals.  In addition, the salt contains the minerals in the same proportions as the human body does, as well as the vital minerals such as calcium and magnesium.

All of these elements are crucial for good health, and keeping you free from dis-ease. A small shift of changing the Salt in your home will make the biggest difference in the wellbeing of you and your loved ones.

Please Note: An adult requires no more than 6gms (approx 1 teaspoon) per day.

I had completely stopped eating salt, thinking that since the refined stuff is bad, i shouldnt eat at all ! am glad to read this, going to get this un-refined rock salt .. its good for cooking as well right ?? does that reduce its effectiveness?? should one only sprinkle from on top ,for taste?? since i have been eating pretty much bland food up to now 🙂 .. thanks alot !!

I hope you change that soon..

Im so proud to say that the only salt is used is natual!! Thank you Sej for the light!! 🙂

It is good to see your information is accurate. They say salt makes you think. When we are children we only want sweets. The minute we include salt into the diet it opens up our thinking process. Of course sea salt is the best. Thank you
