Health Tip: Pass the Salt

You may think all salt is the same but there is one type of salt that is actually good for you and provides some great health benefits!

Celtic Sea Salt

Celtic salt has some of the exact OPPOSITE effects of normal table salt.
Some of the conditions it can benefit are...

Sinus and bronchial congestion: Celtic sea salt when taken before sleep has helped the sufferer sleep through the night as it breaks up the irritating mucus, providing much relief.

Regulate blood pressure: Celtic sea salt has been shown to actually normalize blood pressure. It literally goes around your body and 'scrounges' for the harmful sodium deposits and completely eliminates it from your body. If you have high blood pressure, pure salt will bring it down. But if you have low blood pressure, pure salt will bring it up. Only nature has been designed with the ability to do this.

Deeper and more restful sleep: When Celtic sea salt is taken with warm water before bedtime, it promotes a deeper and longer sleep that is both restful and refreshing. Nor does it cause you to wake up and wanting to urinate.

Water retention: We often hear that salt causes water retention. Again, this is only because the wrong salt was. Celtic sea salt does the opposite by helping our body properly balance out the electrolyte minerals and releasing the retained water.

Kidney stones: Celtic sea salt has also been reported to actually dissolve kidney stones.

Building the immune system and aids healing: Celtic sea salt provides the rich minerals directly to our cells to enhance resistance to infections and bacterial diseases. It also helps our body heal quicker when there has been a surgery, sickness, burns, mental disorders, etc.

Prevent over-acidity in body: The rich minerals effectively eliminates unwanted sodium from the body, extracting excess acidity in the body, especially in the brain. The electrolytes are vital to the nerves for communication and information processing of the brain cells.

Helps control saliva: If you drool in your sleep, it could mean that your body is deprived of the right kind of salt, and that you are not drinking enough water. This condition may also lead to double chin as your saliva glands work doubly hard to lubricate your insides. Drink more water with Celtic sea salt to stop this condition.

Wound Healing: Bathing wounds in sea salt water does not sting, and it helps wounds to heal faster. Also helpful for gargling or drinking to ease sore throats.

Diabetics: Helps balance out sugar in blood in diabetics.

Muscle cramps: Providing essential minerals to the muscles and preventing muscle cramps.

Strong alkalinizer: Helps keep our body at the right pH. This is important as an over-acidic body creates many health problems and an endless list of degenerative diseases.
