One of the main reasons that I love this salt is because its harvested from the ocean, making it more sustainable than rock salt crystals which are mined from the earth.
I first learnt about this amazing sea salt from my first Naturopath, in Manly, Denise Catling (yes, she still practices so look her up if you wish to see her. She’s amazing!)
She once told me that to open the cellular membrane (the outer coating of the cells in the body) you could drink a glass of pure water with 1 tsp of Celtic Sea Salt in it each day.
This, in turn, she said, would ensure increased absorption of minerals, vitamins and nutritients from your foods and supplements, increased water absorption and increased ability to retain the nutrients from food and drink. She told me that this would increase my energy 10 fold – she was totally right.
The other health benefits associated with the use of Celtic Sea Salt include; -
· Regulates blood pressure and heart beat
Should you have either high or low blood pressure or irregular heart beat issues, the use of Celtic Sea Salt will regulate both these to what your body requires to maintain optimal health.
· Remove mucous from the body
It is great for people who suffer allergies, asthma or have bronchial issues because it helps to eliminate the build up of mucous fluids in the body.
· Blood sugar regulator
Great for diabetic and pre-diabetic sufferers as it helps balance blood sugars for your body without the use of harsh medications.
· It is an alkaline substance
With 82 trace minerals contained in it, Celtic Sea Salt is a wonderful alkaliser for the human body. Top up your alkaline stores by adding minerals back into your diet through 1 tsp of this salt daily.
· Increases energy output from cells – increases energy
Naturally, salt and water are the two key ingredients in the hydroelectric output of energy from cells. Simply put, natural and pure salt and pure water mean your cells will put out more energy for you to use – increasing your overall energy.
· Promotes better rest
Because of all the alkalising trace minerals in this sea salt (all 82 of them!) the body is put into a calmer, more restful state when sleeping. This promotes increased healing and is therapeutic for mental health challenges.
· Cramp cure
When I was little I used to suffer “growing pains” or cramps in my leg bones. My mother would say “you’re not having enough salt”.
As cramps are caused by electrolyte imbalance, using Celtic Sea Salt means your body will take the minerals it needs (namely natural sodium) and discard the rest, alleviating muscle cramps quickly and naturally.
So there you have it – 10 good reasons to look at using Celtic Sea Salt in your cooking, in your diet and even just in a glass of water to increase your daily energy output!
Its clean, pure, natural and one of Mother Nature’s greatest abundant gifts to mankind.
Make the switch from crappy, totally-not-nutritional table salt to Celtic Seal Salt NOW and feel the difference :)
