These 12 Health Benefits Of Salt Will Shock You


Before I start, I really want to apologise for not putting a post up yesterday. Today's post will make up for it. *Hugs* 

It's no secret that the main ingredient needed in any food one cooks or eats is salt. This is because, no matter the ingredients used in preparing a meal and the time spent in preparing a meal, the absence of salt in that meal renders everything sort of useless... why? Because it lacks taste. 

Aside from the above, we have most times been advised to stay away from too much salt because of the risk of having one disease or the other, however, the below health benefits of salt will blow your mind away. I hope you get inspired. ENJOY!

- Did you know that having your bath with salt water helps in relieving one from dry and itchy skin, eczema and psoriasis?
- Did you know that salt helps kill the germs in our food?
For example, to avoid eating or having any kind of germs in your food especially in your vegetables, meat or fish, it is always recommended you wash them with salt before using eating them or using them to cook. 

- Many believe that the frequent consumption of salt leads to hypertension. However it really hasn't been proven. A study shows that those who  consume sodium i.e salt more (2300 mg a day, which is what is recommended one takes in a day) tends to live longer than those who don't. 

- Having an allergic reaction or an asthma attack? Try sprinkling salt in your tongue and be prepared to experience a great relief. 

- Did you know that drinking salty water helps reduce one's heart from beating regularly and it also helps reduce high blood pressure?

- Having problem sleeping? Did you know that salt helps improve one's sleep quality?

  3. Hmmmm, which way, I remember, growing up, I used to visit my mom's friend who own a clinic, each time I eat her food there's always no salt in it.
    In my subconsciousness, I think salt do more harm than good.
    Perhaps, I should have asked her; why she doesn't use salt on her meal.
