  • Commercial Table salt is refined by drying at an extremely high heat (sometimes in excess of 1,000 degrees) which destroys beneficial substances in salt.
  • Commercial Table salt is typically 97.5-99.9% sodium chloride, whereas a quality sea salt is only about 87% sodium chloride. This is because unrefined sea salt contains a rich content of important trace minerals.
  • Table salt is full of additives, fluoride, anti-caking agents, excessive amounts of potassium iodide and other poisons. Many versions of commercial salt also contain aluminum derivatives, which are known to be highly toxic. These additives can cause discoloration in salt, so bleaching agents are then used to restore the desirable white color.
  • Unrefined sea salt, naturally harvested and dried in the sun, contains a wealth of trace minerals and electrolytes. Our bodies only need small amounts of these nutrients, but they are still absolutely vital for a variety of functions in the body.
  • In fact, they are key players in enzyme production as well as immune system, adrenal and thyroid function.

Salt, actually sodium, being an electrical conductor, actually energizes the body.  True sea salt, or Celtic salt, contains 92 essential minerals.  Salt works most efficiently in the body in the presence of magnesium, potassium and calcium, which are found in natural, unprocessed salno-table-saltt.  Refined table salt retains only two of them and is but a shadow of natural salt’s magnificent health properties.

Sodium deficiency is dangerous and leads to diarrhea, vomiting, headache, weakness, low blood pressure, lethargy, weight loss, confusion, dizziness and muscular irritability.

Celtic-Sea-SaltThe molecular structure of table salt has been dramatically altered by the high temperature (400 – 500°F) at which it is processed.  Several methods are used to refine salt.  Minerals are removed from iodized salt (table salt) using chemicals such as chorine, hydrochloric and sulfuric acids.  Refined salt also has several anti-caking agents, such as phosphate, yellow prussiate of soda, ferrocyanide. and tri-calcium.  It is even processed with aluminum in some cases.  Any salt that flows freely has been exposed to anti-caking agents to prevent it from absorbing moisture, adversely affecting its absorption into the body.  Heated and washed, salt is white and therefore, like processed sugar, more easily marketed.  Commercially processed table salt is a poison and should be avoided.
