Celtic Sea Salt

Celtic Sea Salt is whole, unrefined natural sea salt, harvested from clay-lined salt beds, just off the northern coastline of France by trained salt farmers. The natural clay that lines the Celtic Sea Salt beds enhances the mineral content of the salt and protects the fragile trace elements. The clay also ionizes the many minerals in the salt, helping it to be rich in electrolytes.

Because of this ionic balance, unrefined, whole sea salt is naturally attracted into the fluids in the human body.  As a result, Celtic Sea Salt helps to maintain the mineral and fluid balance in the body, maintaining homeostasis in the extra-cellular, lymphatic and plasma fluids of the body. This leads to more energy and overall increased vitality.

Nothing is added to this quality Sea Salt that would interfere with its natural balance. Nothing is taken out of this whole salt which has over 80 vital minerals and trace elements left intact. Comparative analysis shows that the mineral content and balance is most similar to what is required by our bodies extra-cellular, lymphatic, and plasma fluids to maintain homeostasis.

In other words, not only does our body need the minerals and trace elements found in Celtic Sea salt but it also uses these minerals most easily as the minerals are provided in this specific ratio.

Celtic Sea Salt is considered to be a strong alkalizer and to provide renewed energy. An acidic body condition is believed to contribute to many sicknesses and alkaline foods are considered powerful remedies.

A distinguishing characteristic of Celtic Sea Salt is that it is moist. The moisture helps to preserve the magnesium and other minerals and trace elements that occur in the salt.

No synthetic mineral supplement can equal the wealth of minerals that natural Celtic Sea Salt supplies, regardless of how rich its content or how precisely it is formulated, - this is real sea salt!

Table salt is a refined product devoid of the naturally occurring mineral constituents. Table salt is basically sodium chloride, With Anti-caking agents being added to table salt to make it flow easily.  Some of these include: ferrocynide, yellow prussiate of soda, tri-calcium, phosphate and aluminum hydroxide.

These anti-caking agents affect the color of the salt, so it is then bleached to assume a pure white color. This now affects the texture and taste.

Dextrose, glucose and talcum are other substances often added to the salt to improve its taste and texture.

Table salt/Sodium Chloride is harmful to the body as it sets up a mineral imbalance within us which leads to a wide range of problems, such as: Calcium imbalance, calcifications, hardening of the arteries, hemorrhagic stroke, high blood pressure, kidney stones, osteoporosis, cataract, glaucoma, fatigue, psychological problems and many more. (This is not to mention the effect of the additives.)  Celtic Sea salt will help prevent and reverse these conditions.

Other Sea Salts There are many other sea salts on the market, most of which come from the sea originally and that is why they can put  ‘Sea Salt’ on the label, but they are mostly all refined and contain only –sodium chloride. Sometimes we see on the label – added iodine, if it were whole sea salt then there would be no need to add iodine or anything else. Most of these are white in colour.

Iodine is an important trace element essential to our health, however it is only needed in micro quantities and can only be properly utilized by the body when it is taken in the presence of other elements.  Iodine actually becomes harmful when taken unnaturally in larger quantities.

The mineral ratio of mined salt changes over time, although it originally came from the sea this distinguishes salt harvested from the ocean from salt mined.

Most other sea salt and table salt use high temperatures to quickly dry salt. High temperatures change the molecular structure of the salt and removes minerals. Minerals are further removed when the salt is washed.

But Isn’t Salt bad for you? No. Sodium is a mineral necessary to human life, however in order to do its job it needs other minerals like magnesium, potassium and calcium. When these minerals are taken out of the salt the sodium no longer has the support of these minerals to function properly.

Scientific research reveals that there are actually very few salt-related health problems.  A healthy, active lifestyle demands a sufficient reasonable salt intake; a body functioning on no salt or on restricted rations of salt causes more problems than it was intending to solve.  Most often salt related health problems are caused by diets
