In this video, we’re going to talk about the difference between Himalayan salt and sea salt. Is there really a difference?
Himalayan salt is actually very different from standard sea salt. Here’s why.
Although both Himalayan salt and sea salt have trace minerals, sea salt also has microplastics. One study found that 90% of sea salt products had small amounts of plastics.
However, Himalayan salt has zero microplastics. Why? Himalayan salt is sourced from an ancient sea that existed before humans and pollution.
Microplastics can create a lot of inflammation in the body because they act as endocrine disruptors. Microplastics also take 500 years to break down.
Do not use sea salt unless it’s Celtic sea salt. This is a much cleaner version of sea salt from France.
What about table salt? Well, not only does table salt have microplastics, but it is also bleach and doesn’t contain trace minerals. Additionally, table salt can contain added sugar and aluminum as an anti-caking agent.
We need a good-quality salt to help:
• Make HCL
• Support the adrenals
• Promote immune health
• Hydrate the body
• Promote healthy insulin levels
• Support the sodium-potassium pump
You need around 1-2 tsp of salt per day. This depends on your activity level. If you sweat a lot, this can increase your need for sodium.
If you’re on keto, you want a bare minimum of 1 tsp of salt a day. This is because, as you lose fat, you also lose water weight and electrolytes. Salt is a vital electrolyte.
Some studies show that certain microbes in your body can help break down microplastics. Make sure your microbiome is healthy. Additionally, cruciferous vegetables and omega-3 fatty acids can help detoxify your body, eliminate endocrine disruptors, and keep inflammation down.
