If you’ve been reading NaturalNews for long, you’ve heard me talk about the importance of switching from processed table salt to a “full spectrum” salt. Table salt — or “white salt” — is to real salt as table sugar is to dehydrated cane juice. Both white table salt and white sugar are devoid of the full spectrum of minerals and other nutrients that protect and enhance your health.
Here in Ecuador, I regularly drinkjugo de caña, for example (fresh, raw sugar cane juice), but I would never think of eating refinedwhite sugar. I don’t use refined whitetable salt, either. Instead, I useHimalayanPink Crystal Saltbecause it contains the full spectrum of 84minerals and trace elements just like Mother Earth intended. It is an unrefined, unprocessed “raw”salt that’s hand-mined from abundant salt caves that were formed 250 million years ago as ocean salt settled in certain geologic pockets around the earth.
Most of the western world thinks of salt assodium chloride– a highly refined, processed white substance that’s devoid of nutrients. Salt is so devoid of nutrients, in fact, that in the early 20th century, doctors noticed that people who ate white table salt started to suffer chronic degenerative diseases such asgoiter. This was caused by thelack of iodine in the salt.
Iodine deficiency, by the way, is the No. 1 most preventable cause ofmental retardation. Eating processed salt that lacks iodine, in other words, can cause your offspring to be retarded.
Now what’s really interesting about processed table salt is thatit’s missing over 80 minerals. But they only put ONE mineral back in — iodine. That’s because iodine is the one mineral that causes the mostobvious disease (goiter is sort of hard to not notice).
Iodine is a naturally occurring mineral in the ocean. It’s abundant in seafood and in real sea salt, but it’s completely missing from refined white table salt.
So they startedaddingiodine to table salt, creating “iodized salt.”
But why would you want to eat salt that’s been artificially enriched with ONE mineral when you could be eating salt that naturally containseighty-four minerals?
Himalayan Pink Crystal Saltcontains 84 minerals and trace minerals, including iodine! And below we share a link where you can get it at 33% off…
Beware of the “sea salt” scam
You’ve probably noticed a lot of processed salt companies now claiming to offer “sea salt.” The truth is,virtually all salt is sea saltbecause it all came from the sea at one time or another in the Earth’s history.
The term “sea salt” is essentially meaningless. White processed salt can still be called “sea salt” even though it is devoid of full-spectrum sea minerals.
The way to tell if your salt is really full-spectrum salt is tolook at thecolor. If it’s pure white, it’s not full-spectrum. White salt is just like white sugar: It’s missing the key supporting minerals and nutrients your body needs.
Full-spectrum salt always has a non-white color. Celtic Sea Salt, for example (which is really good salt) has a brownish sandy color. Our Pink Himalayan salt is a sort of sandy rose color. All the truly natural full-spectrum salts are sandy or brownish in color.

Some other things you may not know about full-spectrum salt:
• This product stores for years. It’s naturally shelf-stable as long as you keep it relatively dry and unopened. Store in a dark, cool place for longest shelf life.
• Full-spectrum salt is a crucialpreparedness item. Your body cannot live without salt, and in a crisis situation, real salt may be very difficult to come by in many areas. Storing full-spectrum salt is not only good for your health today; it’s a type of nutritional insurance against future food shortages.
• If you exercise a lot, juice a lot or live in a very hot climate, your body may actuallyneed more saltthan you’re getting. But processed salt doesn’t provide all the minerals your body needs to replenish. Only full-spectrum salt fulfills your body’s true salt needs.
• A craving for junk foods is often just a craving for full-spectrum salt. When your body lacks minerals, it urges you to consume more. This is often mistranslated in your mind as a craving for salty snack foods. But consuming full-spectrum salt (in a reasonable amount) can often ease your junk food cravings.
Where it comes from
Our Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt comes from the Himalayan Region of the Karakoram mountain range located 400 miles from the Hunza Valley in Pakistan. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karakoram)
Our salt is alwaysstone ground. No metal ever touches the salt during grinding. All the salt is extracted by hand from the salt caves (ancient sea bed deposits). No salt from other sources is mixed with this salt. This is 100% from the Karakoram mountain range salt caves.
These salt deposits are roughly 250 million years old, meaning they were deposited long before the earth became polluted with heavy metals, pesticides and PCBs. While there is really no such thing as “organic” salt, this is probably the most pristine salt you’ll find anywhere on the planet. Eating this salt is a lot like going back in time and consuming minerals from pre-industrial Earth.
This is the salt I use regularly. I actually add salt to raw foods recipes (like raw guacamole) in order to increase my mineral intake. That’s necessary because I eat very few packaged foods that are high in salt. Plus, I exercise regularly so I’m losing a lot of minerals through sweating. This is why salt intake is a regular part of my diet. To me, it’s actually a type of superfood, and I make sure I get enough full-spectrum salt on a daily basis.
Note: If you have high blood pressure or eat a lot of salty processed foods, then obviously don’t add more salt to your diet. Instead,replacethe junky processed salt in your diet with full-spectrum salt. Stop eating salty snack chips and canned soups (those soup cans are lined with BPA, too) and start eating fresh juice smoothies and homemade cuisine made with full-spectrum salt.
