Good for the Skin and Internal Organs

Helps with Weight Loss

Unrefined sea salt contains many essential trace minerals that your body needs in order to be healthy. The minerals are alkaline to the body and thus can help to prevent many diseases and common ailments when added in moderation to the daily diet. Excess amounts of salt can cause it to build up in the tissues and cause many health problems.

In order to obtain the most benefits of salt, it should be taken with plenty of water.

Sleep Better

Sprinkling some sea salt on the tongue after drinking a glass of water is said to help the body to relax so that you can fall into a deep sleep at night.

Strong Bones and Teeth

Sea salt is essential for strong and healthy bones. It wards off acidity so that the minerals such as calcium, potassium and sodium, can remain in the bones and keep them strong. High acid levels in the body cause these minerals to leave the bones in order to neutralize the acids.

Swishing a solution of sea salt and water around in the mouth can also help to remineralize diseased teeth.

Healthy Skin

A sea salt bath can help to clear up and moisturize dry skin in order to keep it young and healthy. It can help to relieve conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.

Healthy Heart

Studies have shown that a low salt intake and a high water intake contributes to high blood pressure in some people. But when both are consumed in the right proportions it can help to lower blood pressure as well as high cholesterol levels. Thus sea salt can help to prevent atherosclerosis, heart disease and stroke as they are often brought on by high blood pressure.

Healthy Lungs

Sea salt is effective in clearing up the lungs and airways to help you to breathe better. It has been shown to help reduce inflammation, and thereby reduces the production of phlegm and mucus, which make it difficult to breathe. Thus it can help to reduce the symptoms of asthma and the common cold.

Heal Faster

Sea salt naturally helps your body to heal faster. Whether you are recovering from surgery, an illness, a fall, a burn or from a cut, sea salt can help to speed up the healing process.

Maintain a Healthy Weight

Last but not least, sea salt can also help you to lose weight or maintain it at a healthy level. This is because it helps to digest your foods as well as absorb more nutrients. The more nutrients your body is able to absorb, the less junk foods you will crave.

In addition it helps to prevent a buildup along the intestinal walls that contributes to constipation and other digestive problems.
