- All salts are not created equal. Refined salts are ~100% chemically synthesised sodium chloride (some with iodine added)
- However even the traditional view on salt (bad for blood pressure) would value the reduced sodium content of Olsson's Macrobiotic salt.
- Olsson's Macrobiotic salt is basically a Celtic style sea salt, the difference being that it is made from sea water off the Great Barrier Reef.
- The mineral profile of Olsson's Macrobiotic salt is significantly superior to normal Celtic sea salts and himalayan rock salts.
- It contains naturally occuring Magnesium, Potassium, Calcium, Iodine and Selenium.
- Locally Sourced, Long shelf life, Stored in an airtight container.
- Olsson Industries is the only family-owned and operated company producing salt in Australia.
Andrew Weil "A study from Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York found that people who eat the least salt have the highest rates of death from heart disease. Specifically, they found that the 25 percent who claimed they ate the least salt were 80 percent more likely to die of cardiac disease. This remained true after adjusting for such heart disease risk factors as smoking, high blood pressure and diabetes. No one is suggesting that on the basis of these findings we start using more salt to protect our hearts – but the researchers did question whether there is any reason for doctors to recommend that healthy people cut back on salt. Study author Hillel W. Cohen, associate professor of epidemiology and population health, said that the findings suggest that, for the general adult population, "higher sodium is very unlikely to be independently associated with higher risk of death" from heart disease or other causes. Keep in mind that this wasn't the type of study designed to determine cause and effect – that is, while it shows an association, it doesn't tell us whether low-salt diets were responsible for the higher risk of death from cardiovascular disease, and it certainly doesn't demonstrate that consuming lots of salt would be protective. There could be another explanation, although the researchers said that they tried to account for other possibilities.Bear in mind that the sodium in salt seems to affect blood pressure only among "salt-sensitive" people. If you have high blood pressure, you may be able to bring it under control by losing weight, exercising regularly, practicing relaxation techniques and following my other recommendations for lowering blood pressure before resorting to medication."http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3510893/
So thats about it. It's powerful stuff that makes us feel great and perform better. Use Olsson's Macrobiotic Sea Salt to replace table salt and salt intake from processed foods.
Ben Greenfield, BenGreenFieldFitness "Refined table salt is poisonous to the body and is responsible, in great part, to the onset of many terrible diseases including thyroid and metabolic dysfunction. So what’s the alternative to common, nasty, iodised, sodium chloride and chemical laden table salt? Sea salt. Natural sea salt contains 80+ trace minerals including potassium and it is only 92% sodium chloride. It is free of aluminium and other toxic substances table salt is exposed to during the refining process. Sea salt is also known for its coarse, crunchy texture and superior flavour.

Dave Asprey (The Bulletproof Executive)"If you want to live longer, eat more salt. That's what the data says and certainly i've been on 10 grams of salt a day for almost 8 years, and I consider quality sea salt a performance enhancing substance. Ideally you want salt that's been mined from a salt mine from a very old ocean because there are no modern pollutants in there."

Abel James, Fat Burning ManThere's a big difference between the salt in processed foods and natural mineral salts.
Gary Taubes, The Political Science of Salt
In an era when dietary advice is dispensed freely by virtually everyone from public health officials to personal trainers, well meaning relatives, and strangers on check-out lines, one recommendation has run through 3 decades with the idsiputable force of gospel: East less salt and you will lower your blood pressure and live a logner, healther life. While the government has been denouncing salt as a health hazard for decades, no amount of scientific effort has been able to dispense with the suspicions that it is not.
Chris Kresser "Ghee is clarified butter, and it’s popular in Indian cooking. Because the milk solids have been removed, it’s very low in lactose and is almost entirely fat – mostly saturated. I tend to use ghee to brown meat and sautee garlic and onions when I make soups or stews, and I sometimes scramble my eggs in it."
