Salt and Your Health

It’s well known that salt is critical to your existence. But there is a tremendous difference between table salt versus crystal salt. Common table salt no longer has anything in common with the original crystal salt. Natural salt is "chemically cleaned" and reduced only to sodium and chloride. Important minerals and trace elements are considered "impure" and removed. The remaining salt by itself however, is not a natural element and is poison to the body. Modern methods of mining and chemical treatments have turned the 'white gold' into an almost useless substance.

Clinical research facts gathered from double-blind studies with PSYMPHONY™ – our unrefined and unprocessed Original Himalayan Crystal Salt®, have demonstrated a myriad of benefits of salt to your body. Crucial to your existence is the presence of the primary electrolytes of sodium (Na+), potassium (K+), calcium (Ca2+), magnesium (Mg2+), chloride (Cl-), phosphate (PO43-), and hydrogen carbonate (HCO3-), plus other significant mineral salts. The electric charge symbols of plus (+) and minus (-) indicate that the substances are ionic in nature.

The words ions, ionic, and ionized refer to electrical charge or electrical potential. We commonly refer to this as ENERGY. Your body functions on Energy alone and requires a specific and complex combination of electrolytes to maintain the very delicate balance between the intracellular and extracellular environments of your body. Vital to your existence is the presence of precise quantities of the right electrolytes. It’s the electrolytes that affect and regulate the hydration of the body, blood pH, blood pressure, and are crucial for nerve and muscle function.

The muscle tissue and neurons of the body are considered electric tissues, able to conduct electricity. It’s the electrolyte activity in the body that activates the muscles to contract. There can be no thoughts and no words without natural salt in your body. And without sufficient levels of the key electrolytes mentioned above, muscle weakness or severe muscle contractions may occur.

Electrolyte balance is normally maintained by eating salt or drinking an electrolyte containing substance, like sole. It is water and salt that regulates each and every metabolic function of the body, including functions of the solid matter itself. Without water and salt, this solid matter of our body is absolutely useless. It is water and salt that energizes and activates our bodies!
