Too much salt is not good to consume, as we have all heard a million times before. Due to the common belief, salt is bad, many people decided to cut it entirely from their diet in fear of potential problems that it may cause. All of this is understandable, but I wouldn’t go as far as to suggest that we eliminate it completely from our diet.
Some salts are proven to be detrimental while others are actually good when taken in the right proportions. Iodized table salt is an example of very a bad salt. Sea salt, Himalayan salt, and black salt are examples of good salt. These good salts protect the health of the body. As there is a purpose for salt in our Earth, there is also a purpose for it in our body. Salt eliminates bacteria, mucus, and parasites from the body; similar to how it purifies the air and helps to keep the water of the ocean clean. Being subjected to polluted air, water and contaminants in the foods we are consuming daily, we need a little salt to help fight all these adversities.
There are many home remedies that involve the use of salt, which clearly illustrates its usefulness. For example, if you have a cold, gargling with a little salt in some warm water is a very effective way to remove that cold from off your chest. Consuming a little salt daily actually helps the body to fight sicknesses and diseases.
