Redmond Sea Salt
Swimming cramps can be alleviated with salt! When I started experiencing cramps in my legs, the life guard brought out the salt shaker and poured some on my hand. I licked up the salt and miraculously my cramps disappeared.
When I got home I Googled information about the benefits of sea salt. ReadyNutrition has a wonderful write up about the benefits of Sea Salt. http://readynutrition.com/resources/10-health-benefits-of-sea-salt_15092011/
Ready Nutrition talks about Sea salt becoming popular as more and more people are learning about the health benefits that unprocessed salt has to offer. When the salt is mined naturally from the earth, and nothing alters the make-up of the salt, the benefits are significant.
Sea Salt contains many essential trace minerals that your body needs in order to be healthy. This natural salt is healthier than the iodized, demineralized salt available in the market. Ready Nutrition has outlined ten great benefits to adding sea salt to your diet:
Muscle Spasms – Potassium is essential for helping the muscles to function properly. Sea salt not only contains small amounts of potassium, but it also helps the body to absorb it better from other foods. Thus it is effective in helping to prevent muscle pains, spasms and cramps.
Strong Immune System – Sea salt naturally helps build a strong immune system to help the body fight cold virus, fever and flu, allergies and other autoimmune disorders.
Alkalizing – Sea salt alkalizes the body, as it has not been exposed to high heat and stripped of its minerals, nor does it have any harmful man-made ingredients added to it. Thus it can help you prevent and reverse high levels of acids in the body, which in turn eliminates the risks for serious and life-threatening diseases.
Weight Loss – Sea salt can help in weight loss. It helps the body to create digestive juices so the foods eaten are digested faster, and it helps to prevent buildup in the digestive tract, which eventually can lead to constipation and weight gain.
Skin Conditions – A sea salt bath can help to relieve dry and itchy skin as well as serious conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. The bath naturally opens the pores, improves circulation in the skin and hydrates the tissues so skin can heal.
Asthma – Sea salt is effective in reducing inflammation in the respiratory system. The natural production of phlegm is slowed down so breathing is easier. Sometimes sprinkling sea salt on the tongue after drinking a glass of water is just as effective as using an inhaler, without side effects.
Heart Health – When salt is taken with water it can help to reduce high cholesterol levels, high blood pressure and help to regulate an irregular heart beat. Sea salt can help to prevent atherosclerosis, strokes and heart attacks.
Osteoporosis – Just over 1/4 the amount of salt that is in the body is stored in the bones, where it helps to keep them strong. When the body lacks salt and water it begins to draw the sodium from the bones, which then eventually can lead to osteoporosis. Thus by drinking plenty of water and consuming salt in moderation you can prevent osteoporosis.
Diabetes – Sea salt can help reduce the need for insulin by helping to maintain proper sugar levels in the body. Sea salt is an essential part of the diet if you are diabetic, or at risk for the disease.
Depression – Sea salt also has shown to be effective in treating various types of depression. The salt helps to preserve two essential hormones, serotonin and melatonin, which help you to better deal with stress. These hormones known as the feel good hormones, help relax and sleep better at night.
MSreliefmarketplace.com has Sea salt for you to purchase. http://www.msreliefmarketplace.com/nutrition/redmond-realsalt-natures-first-sea-salt-pocket-shaker-0-21-oz My Redmond Sea Salt is on it’s way!
It will be fun to see the benefits of enjoying the Redmond Salt, hopefully no more cramps as I swim!
Processed Salt is bad Natural salt contains Redmond Minerals is proud to offer these products, free of any chemical pollutants or other harmful substances, to livestock producers around the world. The utilization of these minerals enables animals to perform the way nature intended. Countless are the reports we’ve received from happy customers who witnessed a change in their animals from the use of our products.
The importance of minerals in nutrition is well established. Extensive work has been done with a handful of minerals, particularly the major macro and micro elements on every feed tag. Every year new discoveries are being made with minerals, even the obscure traces like strontium, and lanthanum, and every year new discoveries are made about the relationships between minerals and enzymes. Enzyme actions are driven by minerals. Throw into the mix the relationships with the many bacteria and hormones. Though we know some of what most minerals do, there is even more that needs to be learned about these relationships, proportions, and balance of all these variables working together in any biological system. Life is most certainly a very delicate balance.
So what is to be done? Is an attempt to balance a few macro and micro elements sufficient? What about the form they are in? How much of the mineral is actually utilized by the body? Can we accurately design a natural balance with all these variables? What about the other 60 to 70 minerals?
Seventy percent of the earth’s surface is covered by water. Ninety percent of the life on earth is in the seas. For centuries the sea has become mineralized from the constant erosion of minerals from the land. In addition, an estimated 20,000 underwater volcanoes continually spew minerals in the seas. After World War II the U.S. Navy analyzed the waters all over theglobe and found there to be 90 minerals in the same balance and proportion. This balance includes large amounts of sodium and chloride. It is very interesting how the sea has the ability to mix and regulate these elements into a perfect balance and proportion to sustain healthy life. Any minerals not needed in this perfect balance are precipitated out and fall to the ocean floor to be utilized by plants or sea creatures if needed.
In the 1950’s Dr. Maynard Murry studied sea life from his interest in finding cures for humancancers and heart diseases. He found that cancer and heart disease didn’t exist in sea creatures, and that tissues and organs of the old creatures were very similar to that of the young. These findings led him to experiments using sea water and sea solids on soils and land animals. He observed in trial after trial the positive health and production effects of sea minerals on plants and animals. More can be read in his book “Sea Energy Agriculture” and also in a book written by Charles Walters called “Fertility from the Ocean Deep.”
Balance and Proportion
This is the key. When the high concentrations of salts that exist in the sea are mixed with all the other minerals in this perfect balance, nutrients are easily transported across animal and plant membranes. This is the same for land plant and animal life forms.
The Salt Institute published that “sodium makes up 93% of the basic mineral elements in blood serum and is the chief cation regulating blood pH.” Is it any wonder that a saline solution (IV) injection is the first thing we receive when admitted into the hospital?
The Breakdown of Salt
All salt comes from the sea, either modern or ancient inland deposits. The difference is the composition and processing. The vast majority of salt for use in food and feed is refined. This means that the minerals in salt deposits are removed and used in other ways. The by-product is refined, and given a flow agent and put into the market for food and feed—98% sodium chloride. This product became the standard for salt. The FDA approved it, wrote the product description around it, and all the research work used it. The same happens with minerals. They are extracted and isolated and then incorporated back into biological systems. But sometimes, taking a great natural productapart and putting it back together is like trying to re-create mother’s milk in the form of baby formula, or pasteurizing wholesome milk and then trying to add back in the nutrition and digestive enzymes that were destroyed during processing.
