Most of us have heard the message that we should cut back on salt for better health. But medical research has questioned the wisdom of having everyone eat a low-sodium diet. The result: No one seems to know exactly how much salt we should consume.

After all, it is widely believed that high consumption of sodium is associated with heart disease, heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure, kidney stones and osteoporosis.

In fact, according to a National Institutes of Health-funded study headed by Kirsten Bibbins-Domingo, Ph.D., M.D., cutting back on salt could lead to “44,000-92,000 fewer deaths from any cause annually.”

Moreover, the American Medical Association (AMA) says that if we reduced the salt in restaurant foods and processed foods by half, we might be saving 150,000 lives a year within a decade.

Frightening Numbers

These numbers are scary, especially given that table salt is so freely available to everyone. Despite this, the Food and Drug Administration Continue reading

Believe it or not, salt is good for your health! But why do we often hear our doctors advise us to stay away from salt or salt-treated foods? Yet we need salt to balance our diet. So are all salts the same? What really makes sea salt different from a regular salt? Let us take a closer look on the big difference between regular table salt and sea salt.

Our old table salt is highly refined, going through a process that removes the magnesium and trace minerals. Various additives are added, like aluminum compound to keep it dry. The natural iodine is destroyed during its refining process and only added back in the form of potassium iodide. As for sea salt, it is naturally dried under the heat of the sun. Therefore retains its natural iodine from the sea. It also means there is still large mineral content. With sea salt you don’t need to use too much of it since it has much stronger flavor than table salt.

According to Ayurveda doctors, sea salts are the most beneficial forms of salt because they don’t increase the sodium content of blood,  Continue reading
