Salted Salt is a mixture of key pharmaceutical grade mineral salts of elements most of us are probably deficient in. The blend uses natural salt as a buffer.
- Sodium Chloride (A blend of natural salts)
- Potassium (Potassium Chloride)
- Magnesium (Magnesium Chloride)
- Boron (Sodium Tetraborate)
- Iodine (Potassium Iodide)
Why take it?
For adults, It provides a maintenance dose of key elements many people are significantly deficient in and most people have an intake far below optimal. Please inform yourself, especially about iodine and boron.
Is it safe to use as a condiment?
Yes. Evey salt in here is in amounts well below the surprisingly high upper tolerable levels.
The most controversial elements in here are iodine and boron, and these are at levels much lower than many people take for long periods to great effect (There are many thriving, informative and helpful communities endorsing and explaining the use of these minerals, if you want to get quickly informed without having to plough through abstracts, papers and articles.)
There is evidence of boron being damaging to reproduction at very high levels to male rats, this is at amounts vastly more than in this salt. Moreover the very respected examine.com disputes this claim as per https://examine.com/supplements/boron/
If you have questions and don’t want to trust the internet then please ask your doctor:) This salt blend might improve your health and wellbeing and have an illness preventative effect. If after taking it you notice anything negative about your body or feeling then stop taking it. I really cannot see this will be the case, especially assuming you just take a pinch or two.
How much should I use?
A pinch (a quarter of a gram) will provide a significant update of boron and iodine and a maintenance dose of magnesium and potassium. This pinch will also provide many trace elements that come from the natural salts. Do not take too much salt.
What are the black particles?
That is natural black salt that I put in there mainly to ID the Salted Salt as not being normal pink salt. It also gives it a faint sulfurous smell. Many people over the world and history have considered Black Salt to be especially beneficial to wellbeing. This is not something I have researched. Yet.
Is it easy to make?
Yes, very. You will need to buy the ingredients which are cheap and mix them in the proportions above. You will need a grinder for the crystals and it will need to be mixed very well for a long time. For about £30 you will be able to make many years supply for you and your family. It keeps indefinitely.
How is it best stored?
I suggest keeping it in glass and leaving in the sun. It loves moisture and will get quite wet if allowed. It dries easily or can be sprinkled damp.
Can I buy some rather than make my own?
I am not into selling it. It is very easy to make yourself. If you know me, contact me, I will give you a months supply to try.
