Celtic Ocean Sea Salt
In light of recent research and experience, we are recommending an increase in the daily usage amounts of Celtic Ocean Sea Salt.
General revised guidelines: adults 4g to 7g daily. If not enough is used in food/cooking then 1g to 2g (1/4-1/2 of a small level teaspoon) may be added to a large glass of drinking water daily to bring the usage levels up. Children pro-rata usage based on the above for a 12 stone (75kg) Adult.
Usage levels below 3g daily are associated with health risk factors as discussed in the external article exposing mainstream salt myths, by Morton Satin, which can be viewed here
Another article from the same source, The Salt of the Earth, Written by Sally Fallon Morell discusses why salt is essential to health and happiness. This article can be viewed hereBoth of these articles are essential reading for everyone, especially those who restrict their salt intake and/or still use white, processed, salts.
Science has arrived at some dangerous conclusions based on the wrong salt. The vast majority of salt in the world is used for industrial purposes, only 7% is used for food, so it's no great suprise that the effects of refined salt are of little consequence to manufacturers.
Refined salt is blasted with heat, changing it's very structure, after it is "chemically cleaned", what you are left with is Sodium Chloride without the life force of the essential minerals and trace elements. Additives, such as dextrose and bleaching agents, are then thrown into the mix creating a product that far from being naturally alive with minerals is in fact a dead chemical. Your body has to sacrifice energy in order to try and metabolise this refined salt, and it upsets many processes within the body including fluid balance and elimination systems.
Celtic Ocean Sea Salt should not be confused with ordinary sea salts - many of these still go through a considerable refinement process. Ordinary 'natural' sea salt is generally missing around 90% of the essential trace elements and minerals. Sea Salt simply means it comes from the ocean. Most of these products have still been exposed to artificial heat, destroying the valuable structure and are mechanically harvested using metallic pipes and bulldozers. If it's a nice clean white colour, it has been refined.
