Role of Sodium in Your Body

Before we talk about sodium, please know that Himalayan Crystal Salt is THE Best. It’s delicious, healthy, with 84 minerals and trace elements. That’s why it’s GOOD for you.

Mainstream medicine has us all convinced that salt is bad for you. And they’re right about refined table salt. It’s little more than industrial waste and it’s VERY BAD for you.

Table salt is sodium chloride. A mere 2 elements that are leftover to season your food. After they strip away every other synergistic element to sell for profit. The remaining product is called salt. But it is nothing compared to its original, whole self. Refined salt is similar to other “white death” products like refined sugar and refined flour.

However, we’re talking about the role of sodium in your body…

  • Circulatory – maintenance of blood pressure, normalize heart rate
  • Excretory – helps maintain acid-base balance
  • Digestive – required to produce hydrochloric acid in stomach
  • Endocrine– reduces aldosterone secretion
  • Detoxification– keeps toxic substances in solution

Sodium Deficiency Symptoms

fatigue, weakness, low blood pressure, slow oxidation rate, low hydrochloric acid level, eating disorders, anxiety, extreme and chronic lo moods, apathy, poor protein digestion, bloating-abdominal, allergies, dizziness

Sodium Excess Symptoms

high blood pressure, water retention, headache, fast oxidation rate, nervousness, lowers calcium and magnesium level, irritability

Synergistic Nutrients

Absorption– calcium
Metabolic – zinc, choline, inositol

Antagonistic Nutrients

Absorption– calcium
Metabolic – zinc, choline, inositol

Hair Analysis Notes

Low Hair Sodium:

  • excellent indicator of impaired adrenal gland activity
  • very low sodium is indicative of exhaustion

High Hair Sodium

  • indicative of excessive adrenal gland activity
  • often indicates excitability and fast oxidation
  • sodium levels can be elevated by toxic metals, especially cadmium

Supplementing Sodium

Salt consumption can be harmful if excessive or if blood pressure is elevated. Slow oxidizers with low sodium levels and low blood pressure often feel better when the use Himalayan Crystal Salt.
