As a part of our ongoing effort to make our food as healthy and nutrition as possible, we have given up on regular white table salt and switched to Celtic Sea Salt.
Did you know there is a major difference between processed table salt and real sea salt?
Table “salt” is manufactured by taking natural salt and heating it to 1200° Fahrenheit. During this extreme process, the chemical composition is completely altered and all of the nutritional benefits are destroyed. In the end, generic table “salt” ends up being about 97.5% sodium chloride and a 2.5% balance containing an array of ingredients including anti-caking chemicals, iodine to prevent goiters, MSG and/or white processed sugar to help stabilize the iodine, and aluminum derivatives such as sodium solo-co-aluminate.
Ultimately, this processed “fake” salt puts people at risk of developing cardiovascular events and chronic disease because of elevated blood pressure and arteriosclerosis. Unlike real salt, processed “salt” will cause your body to retain fluids and is so toxic that your body will operate in a sympathetic fight-or-flight response to protect itself from damage when you eat it. Additionally, most table “salt” is iodized and puts people at risk for over-iodization, which has been shown to abnormally enlarge the thyroid gland and cause thyroid-related autoimmune disorders.
Unlike table salt, Celtic Sea Salt (naturally moist salt harvested from the Atlantic seawater off the coast of Brittany, France) is not processed mechanically or treated chemically. Because it is unrefined and has no added preservatives or additives, Celtic sea salt contains 84 different live elements that are commonly found in sea water and has numerous healing benefits.
Among the live minerals and trace elements found in Celtic sea salt are iodine, iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese, potassium and zinc. The 84 trace minerals provide the necessary nutrients and protect the body from the harshness of sodium chloride that we consume from commercial salt.
Because of the life-giving nutrition sea salt contains:
- 60 trace minerals which help you stay hydrated.
- Sufficient sodium levels that help balance your sodium-potassium ratios.
- Powerful electrolytes like magnesium.
- Trace elements required for proper adrenal, immune and thyroid function.
- Digestive enzyme enhancers, which help your body absorb more nutrients from the foods that you eat.
It has been reported that Celtic Sea Salt is powerfully beneficial for your health and can help:
- Alkalize the body
- Balance blood sugars
- Eliminate mucus buildup
- Build immunity
- Improve brain function
- Increase energy
- Provide electrolyte balance
- Promote restful sleep
- Prevent muscle cramps
- Regulate heartbeat and blood pressure
Celtic Sea Salt has become an organic part of our cooking, including our dehydrated soups. We believe that good food should be both delicious and healthy. Now you, too, can enjoy the benefits of Celtic Sea Salt every time you buy Gala’s Dehydrated Soups. Cheers! 🙂
