Salt is essential for life!

Salt is essential for life!

All animals need salt to survive, and for thousands of years humans have used it to season, cure, and extend the shelf life of food.

As far back as 6050 BC, salt has been an integral part of the world’s history, interwoven into the diet of countless civilisations.

In early times, salt was in limited supply, so much so that it was a form of currency and more valuable than gold. Salt supply helped eliminate dependence on seasonal availability of food and made it possible to store and transport food over large distances (eg. world exploration by ships).

Consequently, Roman soldiers were often paid in salt (apparently the Romans mainly used the complex Celtic salt mined in Normandy), and this is why the word salary is derived from the word salt.

Today, salt is almost universally accessible and relatively inexpensive, which is great news, as it still plays a crucial role in maintaining human health.

Why we need complex salt?

Foods that naturally contain a balanced combination of sodium and other essential minerals, such as seafood, meats, celery, and dairy, allow us to safely consume the complex mineral salts our bodies need for optimum health.

Fulvic Acid and Sea Moss are also essential items to research in regard to essential minerals.

The body is very good at regulating mineral salts and utilising them for a wide range of cell, organ, and body system functions.

The whys:

  • Salt plays an essential role in metabolising water into cells.
  • Balances blood pH and blood acid-alkaline balance.
  • Encourages digestion and elimination.
  • Plays an essential role in healthy nerve and muscle function.
  • Regularises the quantity of bodily fluids (blood, for instance, requires about 10 grams of sodium per litre, and this is why blood is salty). All cells are surrounded by sodium.
  • Acts to regulate heart rhythm and body cycles.
  • Risks of dehydration and mineral salt loss for cell function

The elderly and the very young are the most vulnerable to dehydration due to a lack of complex salts that contain Sodium chloride, Magnesium chloride, Potassium chloride and Calcium chloride. This vulnerability is mainly due to a loss of the thirst regulation mechanism in the elderly, or the immaturity of thirst regulation in children. Both the elderly and children can be under a daily risk of dehydration, and therefore poor organ and system function.

As for the rest of us, most of us consume far too much simple salt, ie. sodium chloride, and around 80% of that salt intake is hidden in processed and convenience foods. It’s important for our bodies to maintain a proper balance of potassium and sodium, as an excess of one causes a deficiency in the other, which can eventually lead to heart problems. This balance can be corrected by using a complex salt.

Complex salt choices include Celtic Sea Salt and Pink Himalayan Salt, and are healthy options compared to simple (table) salt, or iodised salt, which has been adulterated by bleaching, heat treatment, stripped of natural minerals and combined with harmful chemicals and anti-caking agents. Also, a diet of only simple salt (Sodium chloride) will result in an imbalance of the body’s many mineral salts.

Often in medical literature, salt is considered a major factor in calcium excreted by urine, resulting in the loss of Calcium for bones, leading to the loss of bone mineral density. This is incorrect. The culprit in bone calcium loss is excess glucose or sugar in a diet, and the lack of the mineral Boron in food, because Boron is very deficient in Australian soil and therefore deficient in food.

However, Boron is present in small amounts in a complex salt. Boron has a has a major role to metabolise calcium in your blood and carry it to your bones, along with increasing mental alertness, balancing estrogen, and testosterone, preventing loss of bone mineral density, osteoporosis, and rheumatoid arthritis, and decreasing post-menopause issues. Boron also prevents calcification of the blood circulation system (as Calcite) and body organs. 

Phi’on brand, found in our shop, supplies an activated, liquid Boron called Pinnacle. Add 5ml to drinking water twice a week, or 2ml daily. Also, MEA structured water reduces blood calcification by converting Calcite into Aragonite (another crystalline form of calcium carbonate) that is then excreted in urine.

What are the main health benefits of complex salts?

Complex salts are beneficial for a variety of reasons. They can help to regulate electrolyte balance, improve nutrient absorption and metabolism, support proper cell functioning, and increase energy production in the body. Complex salts also promote better digestion and immunity, helping to reduce inflammation throughout the body. They may even be helpful in reducing risk factors associated with chronic health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and hypertension. 

Additionally, some complex salts contain trace elements that are essential for healthy skin, hair and nails. As a result, complex salts can improve overall well-being and vitality.

Finally, complex salts may also help to protect the body against toxins by neutralising harmful substances in our environment. They’re a great way to support a healthy lifestyle, whether it be through diet or supplementation. With so many benefits, complex salts are an important part of any health and wellness regimen.
