4 Nutritional facts about Sea Salt
Pure sea salt has a lot of nutritional benefits. We listed a couple for you to learn more about this amazing product. Our sea salt is hand harvested from the Aegean Sea. Instead of using more traditional ways of letting seawater into an inlet and having the water evaporate, our salt is hand harvested directly from the rocks near the sea.
A great source of minerals
Did you know that high-quality sea salt has 84 trace minerals that nourish and strengthen our body? We used to be able to get enough minerals from the food we eat. However, with monocropping and improper farming methods, our soil has been depleted of these essential minerals and doesn’t provide the nutrients to our food like it used to. However, we can supplement with sea salt and replenish our bodies with these easily absorbable minerals.
Because of its amazing mineral content, sea salt is a great source of electrolytes like magnesium, calcium, potassium, and sodium. These electrolytes are vital for muscle, brain and heart health, because of its critical role in the nervous system. Instead of the typical sugar-filled electrolyte drinks you can find at the supermarket, try adding sea salt to water with a squeeze of lemon juice.
Great for skin health
Because of its potent mineral content, sea salt is said to have anti-inflammatory properties that can be beneficial for skin health. There are many beauty products that use sea salt, because it is said to have the power to detoxify the skin, while exfoliating, increasing circulation, and providing the skin with nutrients. Sea salt has been known to be especially beneficial for acne, psoriasis, eczema, and anti-aging.
Regulates blood pressure
Yes, high quality sea salt is said to be greatly beneficial for regulating blood pressure. The rise in blood pressure is the result of inflammation in the body, which is primarily caused by a high sugar, processed food diet, which also includes white table salt that’s devoid of most nutrients. Real sea salt is said to reduce inflammation by bringing in the necessary minerals that the body uses to boost its immunity. By providing the body with enough water and potassium, it is said to help prevent heart disease and improve cardiovascular health.
DISCLAIMER: The American Heart association recommends no more than 2.3 grams of salt intake per day for the average adult. Although at Neolea we believe that not taking in enough salt per day is equally unhealthy as taking in too much, we consider all our communication regarding the nutritional impact on health as a result of the consumption of any Neolea product as purely informative and not an advice.
