Salt is Bad…Right?!

imagesNo!!  Sodium is an essential nutrient to the body- you need it. BUT, in the right form and with the correct ratios of other nutritional co-factors.

Sodium is feared because if you are eating a SAD (standard American diet) you are getting too much of it in refined, processed, and packaged foods. What we know as table salt is mineral stripped, bleached, processed, and de-natured. Table salt can disregulate blood pressure, (hypertension), contribute to obesity, heart disease, osteoporosis, and much more.

The average person needs about 1 tsp. of salt in the correct ratio with potassium to allow the cells to uptake nutrients (some whole food sources of potassium – Swiss chard, crimini mushrooms, spinach, romaine lettuce, celery, broccoli, winter squash, tomatoes, collard greens, AND Celtic sea salt :-).

A great way to give your body this essential nutrient while tastily seasoning your food is to use Celtic Sea Salt. It looks like sand because it is unrefined, and unprocessed.
