Why should I care about what kind of salt I buy?
If you ever heard someone say, “well, let’s see if you’re worth your salt!”, you were listening to an ancient saying that came from a time when people were actually paid in salt. Salt was used as money.
Because historically, salt was extremely important to everyone’s diet. it was an accepted fact. Salt contains a combination of essential trace minerals not found anywhere else. It balances many body functions with precision.
Did you know this little known ‘salt’ fact?
The word salary goes back to the Latin word that originally denoted a ‘allowance given to a Roman soldier for buying salt’ or a ‘salt allowance’.
This was ‘Salarium,’ a derivative of sal, ‘salt.’ Salt being in former times a valued commodity over which wars were fought, rather that taken for granted as it is today. It soon broadened out to mean ‘fixed periodic payment for work done,’ and passed in this sense via Anglo-Norman salarie into English.

Today, for the most part, we use processed salt. Those precious minerals and trace elements are now stripped out in a processing plant.
Salt processors and advertisers have convinced us that we should be more concerned with the white bleached look of the product and lower costs rather than in its actual nutritional content.

Why does the harvesting method makes a difference?
Gathered and harvested near the coast of Northwestern France where the ocean water is rich in a variety of minerals makes Celtic Sea Salt® superior to other salts.
The salt is channeled into clay ponds where the sun and wind evaporate the water leaving a rich mineral brine. A salt farmer uses wooden tools to speed its drying and helps the salt crystals form before packaging takes place.
By contrast the everyday table salt we usually see and use is washed and boiled. It is then mixed with iodine, bleaching agents, and anti-caking agents to create a purely white, free-flowing product. Even many sea salts you see in health food stores have been boiled and washed, which ends up removing minerals and trace elements.
Why else is Celtic Sea Salt® different?

February 1996 Dr. West says:
“Today, health claims are getting wilder and wilder. None of these claims changes the most fundamental truth about good health–namely, that lifestyle changes with the right kinds of nutritional supplements, attention to your environment, exercise, examination of your body’s structure (i.e. spine, neck, pelvis), pure water, the right kind of salt (we use only Celtic Sea Salt®), and a positive mental attitude are the things that make up good health.”
From Health Alert by Dr. Bruce West
