Is is good or bad for you? The media today would falsely have you believe it is bad for you with the reasoning that it makes you hold water, causes high blood pressure and heart disease, etc.

As you stand in front of the salt section in the grocery store, it’s mind-boggling as there are so many kinds, types and brands of salt to choose from. You ponder – which one is the culprit? IT IS THE REFINED SALT!
Refined salt is the problem. Yes refined salt – only because its chemical properties have been eliminated by the refining process. It simply becomes nothing more than sodium chloride. The 80 or so trace minerals that are naturally supposed to be in salt, have been taken out by the refining process. The same principle is true in processed foods. So it is the TYPE of salt that is causing the problems. Refined salt has the preservative ‘sodium acetate’ which has been scientifically shown to be linked to heavy metal toxicity, kidney problems and elevated blood pressure issues.
Salt is actually needed in the body to help balance your blood sugar, help keep your bones strong, regulate metabolism, elevate the immune system and much, much more. UNREFINED SEA SALT is the remedy.
