The Amazing Benefits of Sea Salt

By Stephen Maxwell March 09, 2021

The Amazing Benefits of Sea Salt

Salt tends to get a bad rap - in the world of hypertension and highly processed foods, the advice from the doctor is often to curtail salt intake. Even for bodybuilders, many have a fear of salt due to it being thought of as contributing to water retention. However, in having fear around this natural food, we often forget that having the right salt can lead to proper nourishment for your mind and body - let's explore these in more detail and why you should be upgrading to a sea salt!

Sea salt vs. table salt - what's the difference?

Sea salt naturally contains trace minerals, which provides amazing benefits to your body. However, the regular table salt that you see at the local supermarket is heavily refined, which means that it is stripped of these natural minerals.

If you're concerned about salt, know that most of the sodium you need to worry about comes from processed foods - so if you stick to whole, natural foods and use some sea salt in your cooking, you have nothing to worry about!

Sea Salt is essential for a healthy body:

  • Prevents muscle cramps

  • Helps electrolyte balance

  • Supports healthy blood pressure

  • Supports energy production

  • Helps smooth digestive function

  • Helps to regulate blood sugar

  • Assists in a restful sleep

  • Supports heart health

    Celtic Sea Salt

    Celtic Sea Salt contains less sodium than other salts and is harvested manually (by hand!) from Brittany, France, near the Celtic Sea. The reason that it retains such nutrition is due to the 2,000 year old harvesting method. 100% natural, this salt is chemical free and unrefined.

    Being a moist sea salt, Celtic Sea Salt is fully mineralised and contains the prized natural trace elements, which are needed for so many functions in the body.

    Along with the general benefits of sea salt, Celtic Sea Salt also:

    •  Helps to clear out mucus

    • Supports your healthy immune system

    • Has an alkalising effect

    • Supports brain function

    • Supports hydrating the body

    Product Recommendation:

    Celtic Sea Salt by Salt of the Earth

    Himalayan Crystal Salt:

    Himalayan salt contains sodium chloride, but it also has an astounding 84 trace minerals and elements. Where is Himalayan Crystal Salt found? Pakistan’s Punjab region, near the Himalayas, hence the name. The purity of this salt is due to the fact that it is sourced from crystals formed millions of years ago, that are sheltered from the environmental damage we see today.

    This type of salt is pure and unrefined, and comes in a range of colours from white to light pink and darker pink tones. Why the colours? This is due to the wonderful trace minerals like potassium, calcium and magnesium. With its crystalline structure and small particle size, your body can more readily absorb the goodness of the essential elements. 

    Along with the general benefits of sea salt, Himalayan Crystal Salt also:

    • Regulates fluid balance

    • Assists intestinal absorption of nutrients for a healthy gut

    • Supports bone strength

    • Supports health of the respiratory tract and sinuses

    • Aids a healthy libido

    By regularly consuming Himalayan Salt, you are giving your body the love it needs. Simply add it to your cooking, seasoning, food preservation or enjoy it as part of your topical beauty products!

    Final Thoughts:

    Don't fear the salt shaker! When you start to appreciate the delicate electrolyte balance in your body, you'll love the astonishing benefits that sea salt can give your body. Remember to source quality products like those found at Vitamin King, so you know you're nourishing your body with the best. Instead of trying to get rid of all salt, limit your consumption of highly processed foods, which contain excess sodium. Swap out your regular table salt for one of our specialised sea salts, and start experimenting with a delicious new recipe today!
