Benefits of Salt in Your Diet
. . .all of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And, when we go back to the sea. . . we are going back to whence we came. -John F. Kennedy
Salt is not only critical to your life, but it is one of the basic elements of which your body is made. Like true lovers, the relationship between salt and your health is so intricately involved as to make them impossible to be disentangled or untied. Without salt, you could not exist for a moment. At the fundamental level of the physical body, you are a walking, breathing, salty ocean.
Like the ocean, the lifeblood of the Earth, your blood consists of saltwater and a specific combination of mineral elements. It’s the inclusion of these essential minerals plus the sodium and chloride that give PSYMPHONY™ Original Himalayan Crystal Salt® its unique “life-giving” qualities.
Besides the clinical research facts demonstrating the positive impact of Original Himalayan Crystal Salt on a myriad of body functions, science has already determined the role and need of salt in our existence. What they have yet to probe, and we aim to make clear, is the difference between table salt versus crystal salt or sea salt versus crystal salt. This subject has been the focus of our research to distinguish our brand from the other ‘knock-off Himalayan salt” products and discourage the companies that sell these brands from using our research to sell their untested salt.
Essentially, every cell in the human body is dependent on the presence of sodium. We find sodium diffused throughout the fluid between cells. Each cell in our body is like a small ocean containing salty water. Inside our cells, we find primarily potassium. These two minerals, sodium and potassium need to be in constant, dynamic balance so the cells can exchange incoming energy with outgoing, depleted energy. Your body is constantly monitoring these minerals and working to maintain their delicate balance.
