Sodium is being described as essential, and it is said that too much is not healthy. There is talk about reducing sodium “but not elimination”. This latter point is important for without sodium (sodium chloride) we die. We are electrical creatures, and electricity is produced at cell level when water, potassium and sodium are all present in appropriate amounts. Apparently a molecule of water entering a cell under the influence of sodium in the extracellular fluid and potassium in the intracellular water generates a tiny amount of electricity. Without a suitable balance of all three you have no electricity.
Regular consumption of natural Himalayan Crystal Salt provides your body with 84 natural minerals, trace elements and living energy. This will help balance the electrolytes in fluids of your body, support proper nutrient absorption and toxin elimination. Common table salt has been refined and reduced to pure sodium chloride, acting as poison in your body. For your body to function properly, you need whole natural salt with all its natural elements intact. Himalayan Crystal Salt offers all 84 elements, exactly identical to the elements in your body, and is vital for:
Excessive sodium is thought to increase high blood pressure in some circumstances and so doctors may recommend that persons with high pressure to reduce their salt intake. However the evidence against sodium is questionable and my doctor was emphatic that the advice does not apply to people without high blood pressure (when I questioned him about this matter). Has anyone got any evidence? Low sodium intake may lead to many problems: poor digestion (from low chlorine leading to low stomach acid); poor muscle tone and strength (hiatal hernia, hemorrhoids, …); muscle cramping; poor self-confidence; depression; poor thinking ability and much more.
High potassium can lead to low sodium problems. Note also that increased calcium can lead to low magnesium problems. Sodium is generally abundant in nearly any diet as a component of most foods and as salt (sodium chloride). Sodium supplementation is not desirable on a daily basis and it is too bulky to be practical in a plant complexed supplement form. Dietary sources are more than sufficient, except in salt restricted diets in combination with excessive perspiration situations, where addition of a little salt to food and beverages quickly remedies the deficiency.
Sodium is an extracellular element, involved in fluid balance, regulation of blood pressure, and cell membrane permeability.
