More Information: The Difference
Ordinary Table Salt
Many doctors readily acknowledge that ordinary table salt, which is almost 100% sodium chloride, can produce harmful effects in the body. The common concern is the sodium/potassium imbalance.
Dr. Henry Gilbert, an early pioneer in this field, found that if ordinary table salt “had all the other salts of the body combined with it in correct physiological proportion, it would be a food; but when only one element is present, the mineral balance of the body is completely upset, and so the body is poisoned.”
He further explained that ordinary salt interferes with the normal flow of all the fluids of the body and so tends to increase susceptibility to colds and other infections ailments. It creates mineral imbalances and a relative deficiency of every other mineral constituent of the body. Then by displacing potassium in the cells, it causes a potassium deficiency.
Biochemist Jacques Loeb also affirmed that sodium chloride is poisonous to protoplasm unless combined with other essential elements.
In addition, Dr. C. Samuel West, a noted researcher on the lymphatic system, claims that ordinary table salt upsets the delicate mineral balance in and around the cell, thus interfering with the electrical function of the cell.
Sea Salt? Himalayan Salt?
Considering sea salt as a possible alternative to ordinary table salt, chemical analysis shows sea salt contains too much Magnesium and insufficient Potassium, since humans as land life, require more Potassium than do sea creatures.
Himalayan salt? likewise, contains 99% or more Sodium Chloride (insufficient Potassium), plus Iron as colorant.
BIOSALT: Biochemically Balanced
BIOSALT is a triturated homeopathical compound preparation, biochemically balanced to correspond to the normal saline content of healthy human plasma in the ratio the body uses it. (See Active Ingredients) It is the RATIO that is important. Too much Potassium is also toxic, so it takes the correct ratio of all the minerals and elements to constitute the food Dr. Gilbert recommends. This is what you find in BioSALT.
Dr. West and others affirm that each cell is an electrical generator, depending for its function upon the delicate mineral balance in and around the cell. As a biochemical balance of essential minerals and trace elements, BIOSALT can contribute to this delicate balance and can help compensate for some of the mineral deficiencies in various of our foods.
BioSALT has a delicate flavor and is fine-textured. It is neither a salt substitute nor a low-sodium or sodium-reduced product. It is an agreeable flavor enhancement recommended as an alternative to ordinary table salt.
