Pink sea salt is an unrefined form of salt that comes from naturally formed sea and mountain beds. It is commonly found in the Himalayas, Mediterranean, and Hawaiian islands. Unlike table salt, pink salt contains, on average, over ninety health-promoting trace minerals, including phosphorus, bromine, boron, zinc, iron, molybdenum, manganese, copper and silicon. Regular table salt is refined and bleached and so only contain sodium and chloride (which aren’t even usable) and contain anti-clumping agents such as aluminum hydroxide, refined sugar, stearic acid, sodium ferrocyanide, calcium phosphate. (Can you believe some use up to 70% dextrose to prevent clumping? That’s 70% refined sugar you are eating with your refined salt!)
When air dried and properly ground, salt supports many physiological functions in our body. One of the main functions of salt is in its chloride fraction. Chloride is a mineral that is necessary for making HCL, hydrochloric acid, which is used by the stomach to digest foods and the strong acid kills the bacteria and other organisms you ingest with foods on contact. Acid reflux is typically treated with antacids but GERD usually is a result of low HCL. When foods cannot be digested, your body tends to hold onto the undigested food particles and it eventually rots leading to an overgrowth of bacteria, fungus, parasites and can lead to leaky gut syndrome. Leaky gut is often times an underlying cause of eczema, psoriasis, acne, fatigue, etc.
Regular consumption of sea salt is necessary for nerve transmission, fluid/electrolyte balance, energy production, skin health, an alkaline pH and kidney health. I have used pink salt to remedy constipation, muscle cramps, insomnia, reduce inflammation and bloating, improve skin quality, hydrate, aid in weight loss, clear asthma symptoms, and target some infectious microorganisms.
Sprinkle our Premier Research Lab’s pink salt in your water and food daily. I recommend at least 1 tsp a day.
