Types of Salt – Salt Health Are some salts Healthier than others?
Types of Salt. Are you confused? Ever since grammar school my family has always considered me to be a health nut. When my friends craved chocolate, I craved cabbage. As a health nut, I always thought that salt is salt is salt. Then I became a certified nut, (I sat for an exam that made me a Certified Nutritional Consultant) and I realized that all salts are not the same. Take my FREE Health Class to learn more.
Consider taking the Free Health Class. I discovered that eliminating unknown food additives in my food and drink has caused my food allergies and migraines to go into remission. My fibromyalgia doesn’t have any flare ups, in fact, 90 percent of all my aches and pains are gone. As shocking as it may seem, there are different types of salt, and it DOES matter to your health based on your decision of the types of salt.
If you are wondering about types of salt, here is my review:
Iodized salt is deadly. The salt looks the same as regular salt — which seems weird because iodine is normally stains everything yellow. From my research I found out that iodized salt contains aluminum. Aluminum has been linked by controversial results. Some researchers say that aluminum contributes to Alzheimer’s Disease. Aluminum hydroxide is often added to improve the ability of table salt to pour.
Sea salt is another one of the types of salt. Beware because sea salt has calcium silicate which is an additive to keep the salt flowing freely.
Kosher salt is another one of the types of salt. Kosher simply means that a Jewish Rabbi was on premises at the salt plant and blessed the salt. This salt also has Yellow Prussiate of Soda which is an additive.
Canning and Pickling salt is one of the types of salt that I recommend. This salt does NOT have any additives. Why? Well, when I can the canning process of putting the vegetables, beans, meat or whatever is being canned at a high pressure into a glass jar that seals. If the salt has any additives in it, the canning process magnifies the taste. So the metal of aluminum makes home canned food taste like metal.
Canning, in my opinion, is an act of love because it takes so much time, buying the supplies to can is expensive and it is a ton of work. Yes, it is cheaper. Yes, it is better for my health. Yes, my family and friends love to receive my canning gifts. But, the fact still remains that canning is a ton of work.
I try to keep canned goods to a limit of only three canned goods from Food Manufacturers per week. A challenge and most weeks I make my goal. The danger in using store-bought canned goods is the plastic (bisphenol A) that Food Manufacturers use to line the canned goods. There is also an adhesive that is used to adhere the tin can to itself to make the can. Both are not healthy for humans and animals. Bisphenol A mimics estrogen to the body which is the leading cause of heart attack, hormonal disorders like hot flashes, night sweats, painful periods, depression – - and the list goes on and on.
What is the recommended salt allowance for an adult. Well, that is a different opinion, too. It all depends on who you ask. As a general rule of thumb, I would suggest about a half a teaspoon is an adult’s recommended daily allowance. That is roughly about 1500 mg. per day. Most Americans eat 1500 mg of salt per meal.
When money is involved the simple subject about types of salt is far from being a simple subject. Let the buyer beware!
