We would like to introduce to you five rules of strategic salting for your optimal health
1. Eat all the salt you want, as long as you are the one doing salting
2. Skew the use of salt toward the end of food preparation
3. Use only natural, unrefined salts
4. Make salting a deliberate act
5. Use the right salt at the right time
Many of us have morning routines that are wonderful health practices — a morning meditation, a few yoga poses, a brisk walk around the neighborhood, or a delicious fruit-infused smoothie. Daily routines are vital to health and happiness, and this is especially true at the start of the day. How about a quick and simple glass of warm lemon water with Pink Himalayan Salt?
The medical community used to suggest that pregnant women limit salt (sodium) intake in pregnancy for three reasons. One, they believed salt intake contributes to bloating. (In fact, inadequate salt intake can cause bloating.) Two, that salt would increase water retention (Salt actually helps us regulate the right amount of fluid retention). And three that it would increase blood pressure. (Some studies have actually shown that additional salt intake can lower blood pressure in pregnancy.) These all are all issues that can develop in pregnancy and the thinking went that salt would only exacerbate them.
