Sodium Chloride (Table Salt) vs. Organic Himalayan Crystal Salt
All living animals need salt, and one benefit of unrefined crystal salt is that it replenishes electrolytes. The importance of electrolytes cannot be overstated. Electrolytes are electrically charged and are a major factor in powering up our bodies. You see, water alone is not the conductor of electrical currents; we require electrolytes in proper balance to coordinate the electrical currents required for many body functions.
Electrolytes are just one of the many uses that our body has for salt. And these electrolytes are not found in common table salt. They come from natural unprocessed sources such as, vibrant, Himalayan Crystal Salt™. There is no salt processed anywhere that is better for your body than crystal salt. Even sea salt is partially processed and so loses some of its natural integrity in the process.
Himalayan Crystal Salt is an all natural salt that has all of its 84 ionic minerals in tact. There is no mistaking the benefits of having 84 minerals in the salt you consume, or soak in or clean wounds with—the same 84 minerals that naturally occur in your body. And, to make it even better, the nutrients in Himalayan Crystal Salt™ are very easily absorbed by the body.
Ordinary table salt presents an enormous burden to your body. It's been bleached and chemically stripped of anything that might be beneficial. Mostly it introduces into your body additional toxins that can't be expelled completely or easily.
Himalayan Crystal Salt in its natural state is nutrient rich with all the beneficial trace elements and minerals exactly like what is present in sea water. It doesn't burden our bodies but instead brings to us 84 trace elements and nutrients that our bodies can easily absorb and make use of.
Sodium Chloride (NaCl) causes dehydration. When your body is working to expel this excess toxic salt, it forms uric acid. Your body pulls the water from your cells in an effort to neutralize the damage by ionizing the substance into chloride and sodium. Your cells can therefore become dehydrated and eventually die because table salt does not contain any properties that would inhibit the excessive transfer of water out of cells.
Himalayan Crystal Salt does not present this problem. These powerful information transfers regulate the amount of water that's allowed to pass through cell walls, and preserves the optimal balance.¹
More and more people are becoming aware of the dangers of common table salt. Because of the dangers of consuming common salt, consumers and producers trends are changing.
Common Table Salt is Not the Answer
Believe me when I tell you that common table salt is not the substance that you want to use or consume. Common table salt has no such benefit and can damage your health with the toxins it introduces.
Common table salt is bleached, chemically treated and heat dried at more than 1000°. It is this process that makes common table salt 99% sodium chloride. Other substances added to table salt include corn sugar and/or aluminum-silicate. They're added even though they're toxic to the body, so that the salt granules don't clump together.
It needs to be stated that commercial salt is mainly produced as an industrial substance. According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), only 3% of the salt produced is for human consumption. Now, read on, and then decide which salt is the best to use for the health of yourself and family.
Toxic Table Salt Sources
Salt is used in many foods that you may or may not be aware of. You can't always tell from reading the product label that it's present. And you can't always taste it in a recipe. Some places you can expect to find contaminated salt are:
Many people believe that if they see sodium contained in mineral water, fruits, vegetables and practically everything else natural from the Earth that it is salt. This is not the case. Salt (Sodium Chloride) and natural sodium are two completely different compounds.
It's sometimes confusing. Some of the names that you may see on labels are very misleading and include part of the chemical name for salt which is sodium. Some of the compounds that you should be aware of may be high in synthetic sodium salts. Some common products are listed below5.
