Interview with Dr. Nakia- Breaking The Myths Behind Salt

It is about enjoying where you are on the way to where you’re going. Dr. Nakia is a very motivated health care professional who uses food as medicine, including salt, despite the negative reputation it has free spins no deposit bonus uk.

Salt is not bad for us; in fact, our body needs salt. Too much of anything can be unhealthy. Water retention and swelling in the body may result from consumption of too much salt. However, a healthy body is designed with mechanisms for managing the excess, and drinking plenty of water can help to remove excess salt.

Although there are reportedly 12 different salts, only two major categories of salt exist: “true salt” and “shady salt”. True salt is presented in the way that it naturally exists within the earth, containing sodium chloride in addition to potassium, magnesium, and many other trace minerals. It is a complete salt. Shady salt is processed salt, typically containing only sodium chloride, and may contain other unnecessary substances. It does not contain the trace minerals present in true salt; therefore, it is not a complete salt.


Breaking The Myths Behind Salt

Table salt is shady salt produced by excessive processing and the use of additives. In contrast, sea salt is true salt, which is produced by evaporating ocean water. Sea salt is more flavorful and has different minerals. This salt has a color other than the plain white color of table salt that we have traditionally seen. Real Salt (manufactured by Redmond Trading Co.), an unrefined, pinkish salt, comes from an ancient ocean salt deposit. Himalayan salt comes from salt deposits near the Himalayan mountain range in Pakistan.

In order to maintain the already present salt level in our body, we need to maintain a regular intake of salt. Our body uses the salt that we eat; for example, blood, urine, and sweat contain salt. When these substances are released from our body, this is an example of the body losing salt. Therefore, our salt supply must be restored in order to replace what we have used or lost.


Breaking The Myths Behind Salt

In 2011, The Journal of Neuroscience conducted a study on rats that led researchers to the conclusion that adequate salt intake in our body is likely to lower stress hormones and raise oxytocin (the “love hormone”) levels. Therefore, we conclude that salt not only helps us to live, but also to love.

We must make an effort to eat less processed food, which typically contains shady salt. Everyone should know that our body needs and loves TRUE SALT!!!
