The truth about the controversy over salt

Salt can be a controversial subject for those who are taking care of our health. It gets a bad rap most of the time. Doctors tell us to avoid it, and some of us listen. However, what these doctors usually don’t mention is that there is a big difference between regular old table salt and real sea salt.

Salt provides sodium, which is necessary for life.

Salt helps with muscle contraction and expansion, nerve stimulation, the proper functioning of the adrenals, and other biological processes, as well.

Salt also provides chloride, which helps produce acids necessary to digest protein and enzymes for carbohydrate digestion, and is necessary for proper brain function and growth.

Real sea salts contains magnesium which is important for producing enzymes, nerve transmission, bone formation, forming tooth enamel, and resistance to heart disease and it also contains many other trace minerals.

Salt also helps raise the voltage in your body. The higher your voltage is the faster you will heal yourself when you have been injured.

The next time your doctor tells you, you can not have any salt, ask him what are the side affects of not having salt, why can’t I have real sea salt.

When the western doctor tells you to eat less salt he is kind of giving you good advice, because the salt most Americans are eating is the wrong type of salt, it has no trace minerals in it, the problem is the doctor forgot to tell you, you should be eating Himalayan sea salt or any sea salt that has trace minerals.

You have to have sodium a long with all the other minerals for your body to function properly, there has to be a balance.

The bottom line is you have to have all the minerals for you to be in true health and that includes the natural minerals in the water you are drinking, every glass of kangen water you drink has those natural minerals.

Please watch this video it explains the important of sodium.

Nature is all about balance. The human body, being naturally created, reflects this principle in every small aspect as well as in its main orchestration, the constant search for homeostasis. Yet mainstream doctors tend to overlook the primal theme of balance. They like to view each body part or system in isolation. They don’t hear the symphony because they have chosen to examine only one note of the music. This approach produces some strange conclusions, one of which is that sodium is the culprit in hypertension, diabetes and heart disease.

The sodium-potassium connection

Sodium and potassium are essential dietary minerals and electrolytes, meaning that they dissociate into ions (charged particles) in solution, making them capable of conducting electricity. Normal body functioning depends on the right regulation of sodium and potassium both inside and outside of cells.

Sodium is the principal ion in the fluid outside of cells, while potassium is the principal ion in the fluid inside of cells. Sodium concentrations are more than ten times lower inside than outside cells, and potassium concentrations are about 30 times higher inside than outside cells. The concentration differences between potassium and sodium across cell membranes create an electrochemical gradient known as the membrane potential. A large portion of energy in the body is dedicated to maintaining sodium/potassium concentration gradients, underscoring the importance of the balance between sodium and potassium in sustaining life. Tight control of cell membrane potential is critical for heart function, as well as nerve impulse transmission and muscle contraction.

In Western industrialized countries, the daily intake of sodium chloride (salt) is about three times higher than the daily intake of potassium. The balance or equilibrium so necessary for these minerals is not achievable through the typical dietary choices of Westerners. Studies are showing that the relative imbalance of this ratio in the Western world is positively correlated with hypertension, heart disease and diabetes.

Studies support the need for a balanced relationship between sodium and potassium

In a report from the Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, DC, published in the journal Kidney International, researchers noted that chronic low potassium levels have been associated with a variety of lung disorders, kidney disease, and hypertension in both adults and children. However, the effects of potassium depletion on the rapidly growing infant have not been well studied. They designed their study to determine the effects of severe chronic dietary potassium depletion on blood pressure and kidney structural changes in young rats. Rats were fed either a control or a potassium deficient diet for 14 to 21 days. At the end of the period, blood pressure and renal activity was assessed. Then the remaining rats in each group were switched to a high salt diet or were continued on their respective control or potassium deficient diets for an additional six days.

Most Americans are eating the wrong salt, it has no potassium or any trace minerals, sodium by it self is dangerous.

Clearly, sodium is only one side of a two-sided equation. It is as necessary to body functioning as is potassium, but must be in balance with potassium to be effective. The traditional Western diet is high is sodium and low in potassium. Being told to reduce the amount of sodium consumed fails to acknowledge the need to raise potassium consumption until both minerals are balanced and equilibrium is reached in the fluid inside and outside of the cells.

It is impossible for researchers to duplicate the balance of natural minerals; in every glass of kangen water you are getting the right balance of natural minerals.

Not all sea salts are the same, always check to make sure you read the back of the bottle and it states trace minerals.
