Why You Should NOT Limit Your Salt Intake?

sea saltYes you read that right – I am saying you should NOT limit your salt intake!  Why is this?  Well, as Dr. Brownstein posts in his blog, we need salt to live.  It is important for many biochemical processes in the body.  Now, I am not talking about that white, refined table salt they have on the table at many restaurants or that comes in that round blue bottle.  I am talking about unrefined, mineral rich, moist, colorful sea salts.  This type of salt has the right ratios of sodium, chloride, and all the minerals we need to properly utilize these items in the body.  Just like we have been told an apple a day keeps the doctor away, well a teaspoon of the right sea salt per day may just do the same thing!
