Salt is a vital substance for maintaining your health. We constantly hear bad press about salt, and indeed, refined salt is extremely unhealthy, however your body needs natural salts to function properly.
Isolated, synthetic, sodium chloride, with none of the valuable minerals and trace elements, cannot be assimilated by the body so well, making it far less beneficial to the system. Another case of Mother Nature knowing best - pure, natural salt such as Celtic Ocean Sea Salt has the perfect balance of minerals, nutrients and sodium chloride that we need for optimum health; your body can recognise and absorb these essential nutrients efficiently.
Celtic Ocean Sea Salt: General usage guidelines: adults 6g to 12g daily on food and in cooking. If not enough is used in food/cooking then the remainder 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 4-6g daily are associated with health risk factors as discussed in the external article exposing mainstream salt myths, by Morton Satin, which can be viewed

Both 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 surprise 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 the 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.
The rule of thumb with salt is....
if it's a nice clean white colour, it has been refined.

*Magnesium is one of the key minerals for regeneration; it is used in over 350 enzymatic reactions in the body, more than any other mineral. Next to Oxygen & Iodine, Magnesium is the third most important element for sustaining life as well as reversing disease and aging. It is estimated that 80% of the population of western countries are is magnesium deficient. Mag Sea Pure is considered the remedy of choice by RN for resolving this deficiency.
