All about salt
With the advent of industrial development, natural salt has been chemically cleaned and reduced to the combination of sodium and chloride - unnatural, isolated, unwholesome substances.
Natural crystal salt consists not only of two, but of all natural elements. These are identical to the elements of which our bodies are built and those originally found existing in the primal ocean from where all life originated.
Original unprocessed salt consist of 84 naturally found trace elements absolutely necessary for the body
- regulates the water content
- vital to nerve cells communication and information processing
- balances blood sugar levels, reduces aging
- aids absorption of food in intestinal tract
- natural antihistamine - clear sinuses
- makes the bone structure firm
According to ayurveda organic rock salt (sindala and kala namak) is healthiest - it is known to be cooling, anti- acidic, anti-bilious, anti-phlegmatic, carminative and digestive.
Both rock salt and sea salt have these benefits because of
Sodium: cures acidity, gas and purifies blood
Chlorine: frees the body from foreign elements
Calcium: formation and growth of bones
Phosphorous: sharpens the mind
Iron: helps in absorbing oxygen
Manganese: balances salt in the body
Potassium: strengthens nerves, heart and liver
Copper: adds iron content to the body
Sulphur: purifies blood and skin
Silicon: strengthens eyes and ears
Magnesium: a general health tonic
Fluorine: strengthens bones
We can reduce the use of salt by adding foods to our diet that have natural salt content like carrots, cabbage, guava, cucumber, radish, banana, fenugreek. Herbs, garlic and lime when sprinkled upon food reduces the need for salt, without detracting from the taste.
The wisest choice would be to use rock salt, sea salt and black salt.
