New You New Years: Changing Your Salt
Why You Need More Salt
Salt is often touted at something we all need to reduce in our diets. High salt consumption is blamed for a whole host of diseases like hypertension and heart disease. But new research shows that this isn’t the case! Salt is really a healthy food for our diets and is essential for our bodies! Along with other trace minerals like magnesium, salt contains sodium and chloride which are necessary for our body.
Natural salt is not something new to our diets. Salt is mentioned in the bible nearly 50 times! In traditional cultures salt was used to preserve food and could even be used as currency. Salt is still as important now as it was then.
