I was reading an article about the benefits of sea-salt in diet. The sea-salt is an integral element of our food but very rarely we think of it in terms of a healthy ingredient.  You will be amazed to know that coarse grains of sea-salt may pack in about 100 minerals within them. The sea-salt differs from the refined salt in its form and texture, however they taste the same.  I feel it will be great injustice to limit sea-salt benefits within the confines of a limited words blog. But it is enough to introduce you to some of the relatively unknown benefits of sea-salt.


I feel some of the most appreciable sea -salt health benefits are not limited to:

  • Stabilization of abnormal heartbeats: Contrary to the popular belief sea-salt helps in curbing high blood pressure. The sea- salt when combined with water in right proportions help to stabilize pressure by eliminating harmful sodium deposits from body.


  • Inducing deep sleep: Sleep and salt?! Rarely people believe that it is one of the appreciable benefits of sea-salt. The sea-salt helps to clear congestions induced by issues like sinus, catarrh, and bronchial congestion. It helps the person to get refreshing sleep.

The improved cell health also reflects on our immune system and equips us to fight against various diseases with ease.


  • Curbing Water Retention: Normally no one will believe if it is said that this is counted amongst one of the valued benefits of Sea-salt.  Contrary to the popular belief the sea salt helps to avoid water retention in the body.  It helps to dissolve kidney stones.


  • Dead sea-salt benefits: It is said that dead sea-salt possess healthful properties than its regular counterpart. It  has high values of sodium chloride which establishes it as one of the most famously used skin care cosmetics.
