Salt - Natural Sea Salt 350g
Sea salt is produced through evaporation of ocean water or water from saltwater lakes, usually with little processing. Depending on the
water source, this leaves behind certain trace minerals and elements. The minerals add flavour and colour to sea salt, which also comes in a
variety of coarseness levels.
Sea salt is mostly composed of sodium chloride, a compound that helps regulate fluid balance and blood pressure in the body.
Compared with table salt, sea salt is less processed, contains more trace nutrients, and has a larger particle size, a characteristic that explains why it contains less sodium per teaspoon.
In general, salt can help you maintain adequate hydration and blood pressure levels.
Since sodium plays a vital role in fluid balance, not getting enough of it can lead to dehydration, especially during high-intensity exercise.
Having proper fluid balance in the body is also important for maintaining healthy blood pressure levels.
Therefore, consuming either too little or too much sodium can lead to changes in blood pressure in those who are sensitive to dietary salt.
Taking a sea salt bath is thought to decrease skin dryness and inflammation.
Sea salt adds flavour to foods and may have some beneficial non-dietary uses, but it should not be consumed in excess.
Overconsumption of sodium is associated with high blood pressure, osteoporosis, kidney stones, and other health issues.
Furthermore, people with kidney disease, high blood pressure, and heart failure may need to be particularly careful about their intake of sea salt and other salts.
