Importance of Sodium
Today I have to talk about SALT! I can't get over how much of a difference it's making for me this dry Utah winter and knew I had to share its benefits with you all.
Sodium = the "blood electrolyte"
▫️Rich in trace minerals: it is getting harder & harder to obtain in our foods due to our, sometimes, lack of nutrient rich soils!
▫️Electrolytes prevent dehydration/balances fluid levels: many many people (including Dr's) think that if too much sodium in the body = water retention (which can be true) but also not enough water and not enough salt also = retention. Have #edema? Increase potassium! (importance of potassium and my obsession in a later post). 🚫 Diretics! They will take fluid out and vital minerals along with it! Potassium works hand in hand with sodium and will keep fluid levels without depleting sodium.
▫️Promotes nutrient absorption
▫️Digestive health: Anyone on a low salt diet and have digestive issues or #heartburn? Thats because lack of salt = the above. Sodium =digestive enzymes, aids in elimination of Carbonic acid and halts fermentation!
🤰I can not believe the difference it makes on my pregnancy. I drink at least 68oz regularly and if I do not add salt to my water I'm peeing all day long. When I do, I'm peeing half as much (yes, even pregnant.. I'm 30 weeks and RARELY get up at night to go) AND no retention.
🌨️ My lips and hands tend to get really dry in the winter. Days I add salt to my water.... Zero lotion or chapstick needed! I feel I should post pics of the difference.... Yes I believe I will (stay tuned!)
Salt and potassium go hand in hand. They are VITAL to health. Along with Magnesium it makes up the trifecta of a good foundation.
Do your body/brain/organs a favor and start actually absorbing the fluids you're drinking!!
