The next few posts are on baking essentials in everyone’s home, that are easy changes as well. Now just because it has a 👎🏻, doesn’t mean it’s caused you cancer and you’re now dying.

Why sea salt over table salt❓Here are some benefits of sea salt: .
💧is full of 60+ trace minerals which are great health benefits to your body.
💧with our food being grown in less nutrient dense soil, it’s hard to get trace minerals from our foods. The bodies of water sea salt come from are not lacking in these trace minerals.
💧has magnesium and potassium, 2 minerals many are low on. .
💧minerals like potassium and magnesium that help you get the most out of the sodium your body needs, while countering the negative effects of sodium. Potassium and sodium work closely together. When you get plenty of potassium in your diet, sodium stops raising blood pressure. In fact, getting enough potassium lowers your blood pressure more than cutting out sodium does.
💧has healthy electrolytes
💧has iodine in it .
💧sea salt actually has chloride in it which helps create your stomach acid (HCL). Having enough stomach acid is key to how you digest foods and absorb their nutrients.
💧Improves insulin sensitivity, helping you get energy out of the food you eat.
💧Improves vascular health and circulation.

Why I don’t love table salt:
👎🏻table salt is bleached
👎🏻the table salt pictured (like many salts) has a corn derived sugar added to it.
👎🏻the table salt pictured has an anti caking filler added to it
👎🏻Table salt has been stripped of the minerals like potassium and magnesium that balance its effects on blood pressure.
👎🏻it’s processed.

Just FYI...when the American Heart Association gives a daily limit on salt, it’s table salt.
