It is an unfortunate and common fact that the amount of refined salt found in processed foods is astronomical and can affect your health for the worse, taking its toll on the fresh and healthy glow of your skin.
The main issue behind this is that processed foods are full of the wrong kind of salt since they are made from refined sodium with added chemicals, sugars, preservatives and bicarbonates. This means that refined salt is stripped of more than 60 essential minerals and includes such preservatives as aluminum hydroxide, which has been linked to Alzheimer's in the U.S.
According to the 2010 recommendations of the American Heart Association, an adult should have no more than 1,500 mg of sodium per day. If you are eating the standard American diet, then you are already taking in way too much sodium, negatively affecting the beauty of your skin.
But, wait! There is good news in all of this. You can begin to improve the health of your skin by making the simple switch to the right kind of salt as opposed to the harmful sodium found in many processed foods.
Your answer can be found in mineral-rich sea salts from the ocean.
Yes, sea salt is full of minerals that will nourish your body, keep your blood alkaline, and even increase the benefits you receive from other foods. Interestingly enough, sea salt is the most alkalizing food on the acid/alkaline spectrum. For this reason, we firmly believe that cooking with and sprinkling on high quality sea salt should not be just an “extra” in your diet but should become an essential component for helping you stay biochemically in balance. Balance is one of the most important secrets for health, longevity, and beauty.
So how could a deficiency in nourishing sea salt affect the quality of your skin?
Here are the many ways that sea salt benefits your skin:
- Aiding in nutrient absorption in your intestinal tract
- Promoting healthy cellular maintenance, resulting in fresh and vibrant skin cells
- Boosting your immune system to make you more resistant to skin infections and disease
- Reducing fluid retention so that your skin remains radiant and luminous
- Relieving skin diseases and skin allergies
- Reducing toxins to promote clear skin
For this reason, it is highly essential to give your body the healthy minerals that it is craving so that it can repair and restore your skin from the inside out. All of the above benefits of sea salt in the diet are quite impressive and they work together flawlessly to improve the quality and tone of your skin.
Boosting nutrient absorption through eating healthy sea salt will quickly supply your skin with the nutrients it needs to repair skin disorders, dryness, flakiness and an uneven skin tone. Eating healthy salts will additionally help to regulate your sleep patterns so that your body can rest and repair itself to help you wake up looking refreshed and rejuvenated in the morning.
Furthermore, having healthy levels of sea salt in your body will reduce fluid retention, which often leaves your complexion looking dull, lackluster and flat. If you have ever wondered what to do to get glowing and clear skin synonymous with youth, the simple answer is found in staying hydrated so that you can effectively flush toxins from your body. Eating the right kind of healthy salt works hand-in-hand with hydration because it will reduce unsightly and uncomfortable fluid retention so that your skin looks fresh and youthful. What a dramatic difference!
