Salt is fundamentally essential for your life, you simply cannot live without it. In fact, salt makes up a significant portion of the liquid inside and outside of your cells. Unfortunately, most people are unaware that there are major differences between common table salt and natural health-promoting salt.
Common Table Salt
Common table salt is found in most households, restaurants and processed foods. This type of salt is refined and stripped of any nutritional value and is highly addictive and destructive.
Most all of the natural chemical structure of common table salt is destroyed or altered through the drying process. The salt is dried at more than 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit. After processing, common table salt consists of 97% sodium chloride and 2.5% chemical compounds like iodine, moisture absorbents and sugar. Sodium chloride is an unnatural chemical that your body flags as a poisonous substance. In an effort to defend itself from the aggression, your body has to expend tremendous amounts of energy to metabolize common table salt crystals and keep your body at optimum fluid balance. During this process your body sacrifices other vital functions by taking water from other cells in your body.
Studies reveal that for every gram of sodium chloride that your body cannot process, your body will use more than 23 times the amount of cellular water to neutralize it. This process causes excess fluid in your body tissue, which contributes to high blood pressure, heart disease, dehydration and electrolyte imbalance.
Health Promoting Salt

In contrast to common table salt, Himalayan crystal salt helps to restore balance in your body, regulates PH and neutralizes negative ions. The minerals found in Himalayan crystal salt are easily absorbed and are used to maintain vital functions without the need to be broken down or processed by your body.
