- Why this dangerous food isn’t so dangerous
- Adding low-sodium magnesium salt to your food can reduce pain, fatigue, cramps and circulation problems
- But read this email first!
When you think of salt…
You might think of words like
But as you’re about to see, this shouldn’t necessarily be the case.
However, let me step back a little, right to the beginning of this story.
A reminder about the missing nutrient…
A little while back we offered you a magnesium health challenge…
We wanted to see if you’d notice the effects of a complete magnesium replenishment within 60 days. As I explained, restoring lost magnesium can ease the following:
• joint pain and stiffness
• high blood pressure
• poor circulation
• muscle cramps
• restless leg syndrome
• high cholesterol
• Severe PMS
So it’s well worth topping up this nutrient, which is sorely lacking from our diets, and gets harder to keep in the system as we age.
However, there were a lot of elements to our complete magnesium package, from bath flakes and sprays to supplements.
If you didn’t fancy the full magnesium ‘spa’ then I’ve got a really simple alternative.
But one that might surprise some people…
It’s a way you can top up your magnesium without baths, sprays or taking supplements. You’ll barely notice that you’re doing anything to add it to your diet!
All you have to do is try this magnesium-enriched table salt: magnesium salt.
It’s far lower in sodium that your average table salt, making it a far healthier addition to your meals.
Yet it can give you that daily magnesium boost which you need to ease chronic pain, nausea, exhaustion, insomnia, restless legs, cramps, acid indigestion, dizziness, poor memory, anxiety, facial tics, severe PMS, appetite loss, and many more problems.
Now, I know this sounds odd…
TABLE SALT as a healthy ingredient?
What’s going on?
Well, yes, table salt can be good for you…. in moderation, and with few caveats.
Because despite decades of media hysteria, salt is not as bad for you as you might think.
After all, it’s hardly a poison is it? We all need salt for our muscles and nerves to function properly.
And having too little can be as bad as having too much.
In 2017, world leading expert on heart health named Professor Salim Yusuf said that it was dangerous to lower our salt intake as much as we’re being told.
He said that the recommended 6g of salt per day, was too low and could actually increase chances of heart disease.
Another study in the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology has shown that too little sodium in your system can speed up the onset of cognitive decline.
The research showed that men lower blood sodium levels were 30% more likely to have cognitive impairment.
Our salt problem doesn’t really come from adding good-quality table salt to food (not unless you’re piling it onto your dinner in big white pyramids).
In fact, only around 5% of your intake comes from adding salt to home-cooked meal, and then changing to a low sodium version reduces this even further.
A lot of processed salt comes from obvious sources, like crisps and savoury snacks.
But the really serious health issue is all the high sodium salt that sneaks into ready meals, takeaways and processed foods, which we are all eating too much of, and too often.
It’s the invisible salt… or the salt you cannot obviously taste… that’s the salt you need to avoid.
For instance earlier in the month, a new report by Action on Salt showed that Chinese takeaway dishes could contain as much salt as five Big Macs.
They found that some supermarket Chinese ready meals had more salt than in two Pizza Express margherita pizzas, while a few of the rice dishes had more salt than eleven bags of ready salted crisps.
In 2016, some brands of crumpets were found contain “alarmingly high” amounts of high sodium salt, while processed loaves of bread was another ‘surprise’ culprit.
This is why many Britons simply don’t realise how much poor quality salt they eat in the foods they buy from supermarkets and restaurants….
You don’t need to throw out the baby with the bathwater.
Not all salt is the enemy
If you were to only eat home cooked meals made from whole, natural ingredients (vegetables, fish, pulses, meat) and simply added some magnesium-enriched low sodium salt, you’d have a healthy amount of safe salt in your system.
But more importantly, you’ll have topped up your magnesium levels, putting that missing nutrient back into your body with so many benefits, as you can see here: Magnesium Salt Benefits
So if you didn’t fancy taking on the big magnesium challenge, this is an easy, effortless way to add a little of this missing nutrient to your diet.
Until next time,
