I love being great friends with guys like the Food Detective (and Nutrition Nerd) Nicky P.
Not only does he have a hilarious French Canadian accent, and authentic personality, he’s always delivering me well-researched nutrition info that I can pass along to my readers.
Today, Nick uncovers some shocking FACTS about real salt.
Plus, you’ll discover the REAL truth about sea salt.
Take it away Nick…
Everyone knows that salt is bad for you.
Eating salt increases your blood pressure and leads to hypertension.
But what if I told you that everything you heard about salt and sodium is just another nutrition lie?
I know this is hard to believe…
After all, every health institution, nutritionist and fitness website under the sun tells you to avoid salt.
But the truth is that the guidelines on salt from the American Heart Association (AHA) are too low, and even downright dangerous if you exercise a lot.
Your body NEEDS real salt to be healthy.
Even worse — if you eat a very low salt diet, you’re setting yourself up for:
– Increased insulin resistance
– Increased blood triglycerides, LDL cholesterol and stress hormones
– Increased risk of stroke and heart attack
– Increased arterial plaque formation
– Overtraining-like symptoms, including hypertension and sleeping disorders
Real salt is simply NOT the enemy for 99% of people.
(The only reason you’d want to watch your salt intake very closely is if you have specific renal or kidney problems, or osteoporosis.)
HOWEVER, not all salts are created equal — far from it.
Always try to avoid common refined salt (table salt), and use unrefined salt instead.
Refined salt contains 97.5% sodium, the rest being a bunch of added chemicals like ferrocyanide, fluoride and aluminosilicate — which you definitely do NOT want in
On the other hand, pure unrefined salt contains 84% sodium, the rest being 16% of essential trace minerals and other micronutrients.
Now, if you’re like me and you’re always looking for the healthiest option out there, you absolutely need to check out this pure, unrefined salt I’ve been experimenting with:
==> Real Salt
This is simply the best tasting salt I’ve ever had.
In fact, it’s so good that one of the owners I talked with last week — John Cawrse — can barely keep up with the demand.
From a true salt-lover,
Karen and I talked with John and we’ve been using his product as well…and we love it.
And because you only need a teeny, tiny pinch to get the flavor (and health benefits) you need, it seems like one bag lasts forever.
This is simply the BEST Real Salt I’ve ever come across. Period.
