Why You Need More Salt!

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 dietsSalt 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.  

How Salt Works in our Body

Salt is a main component of blood plasma, amniotic fluid, lymphatic fluid and extra cellular fluid. It carries nutrients in and out of our cells. Salt is needed for firing the neurons in our brains and helps with creative thinking. It also helps maintain proper blood pressure and supports your adrenal glands (most adults are experiencing adrenal fatigue).

Salt is also important to help us digest our food. It helps in the production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach. It also activates amylase which helps break down starches.

New evidence shows that salt may not even cause heart disease.  There was actually data showing that a low salt diet increased your likelihood of dying. The study showed the least likely to die were people having high salt in their diets. Interesting!
