Hello Water Friend,

Did you know that a balanced intake of both water and unrefined natural salt is necessary for adequate hydration?

The way in which water is regulated in the body is really interesting. Water itself regulates the water content inside our cells, whereas salt regulates the water content outside our cells.

However, the intake of refined salt (white table salt) can create a significant imbalance in water regulation inside and outside the cells, especially when the body is dehydrated.

I think it's important to understand how the balanced intake of water as well as the right type of salt can help promote optimal health and hydration.

Thus, I hope you will check out our related articles in this issue.

Happy October!

Water and Salt—A Balanced Intake Is Essential for Health and Hydration

Water and salt (along with potassium) regulate the water content of the body. Drinking water without adequate salt and potassium intake will not correct dehydration!

Drinking water will temporarily treat the symptoms of dehydration, but the balance of salt intake is what makes the real difference in health and hydration.

I believe most of us have been programmed for years to believe that all salt is bad. The fact is that refined white salt, such as commercial table salt, IS bad for our health. I consider it a toxic poison for the human body.

However, unrefined natural salt provides many health benefits. It is a vital element for all living things.

In some cultures, salt is literally worth its weight in gold. Unrefined sea salt, for example, has been used by healers throughout the ages as a powerful “medication.” And in desert countries, people know that their survival depends on a balanced intake of water and salt.
