Holy grail of salt
Updated: Apr 16, 2020
Is dirty better...?!? And "why" is Grey Salt the most coveted over it's other siblings...
Treasure, Currency and Elixir
Salt is treasure and a highly coveted commodity from the ancient world. Salt was one of the greatest treasures of antiquity. Apart from the Europeans, Chinese, Hittites, Hebrews, Egyptians, Sumerians and other civilizations, it was a prized commodity and valued greatly. Popular from the the times of pre and post, the Great Flood through the Greek and Roman Empires as well as today. Roman Legions sometimes used salt as currency. Due to the high value of salt, an ancient Roman proverb is quoted as saying that people who did their job well were “worth their salt.” (Or “worth their weight in salt.”). Alas it appears much of salt's super-powers have been forgotten, sunken into myth and/or edited out of man ancient scriptures that remind Humanity from whence we come, as well as, our Instruction Manual of "how to" care for, cure and heal our bodies.
Warrior of Wellness
According to new research, grey salt when in contact with malignant cells, begin to self destruct. The science of it reads something like this: the malignant cells have high levels of a protein called Bcl-2 and this protein makes is most difficult to kill. But the miracle of Grey Salt works on these degenerative cells with elegance, grace and ease. In fact, this research presents unlike most varieties of salt. Grey Salt has presented itself as miraculous. Grey Salt acts like a magnet for this Bcl-2 protein akin to a Pacman effect, gobbling-up these ill cells without harming healthy cells which maintain the body's wellness, thus, due to Grey Salt's hyper-purification process.

The Chemistry of Grey Salt
Grey Salt known also as Celtic Salt, though not exclusively, contains a wide variety of minerals and trace elements. Grey Salt contains roughly 33% Sodium, 50.9% Chloride, 1.8% Minerals and Trace Elements and 14.3% moisture.
Colored by the clay from where it's harvested, Grey Salt is often called Celtic Sea Salt. It is hand-raked in Brittany, France, though not only, where the natural clay and sand create moist, mineral-rich crystals. This salt generally retains its moistness. Grey Salt can help to restore electrolyte balance, has alkalizing properties and can prevent muscle cramps, much like its cousin, Rose Salt. Thus, it is a bit more expensive, due to the labor intensive process of cultivation. This research is premised upon Elements in Light Grey Celtic Salt and is measured in milligrams per 1/4 teaspoon (one serving size).
Once re-disolved in water and/or in food as it cooks, these naturally present elements recreate the sea water from whence it came. It is amazing how this composition is similar to human blood and body fluids. Basic physiology validated the fact that the ideal replenishing substance, capable of maintaining or re-storing health in humans, would have to be that very sea salt that has retained all of the elements of original sea water. And as such, it has been established that (24) of these elements are essential to maintain physiological life.
The Elementals of Minerals
Multiple bodily functions and processes can only be performed with certain certain minerals. Each mineral needs one or more other minerals to execute these functions properly. For instance, a calcium-phosphorus balance is necessary for the body to maintain dis-ease free environment, counter fatigue, avert weakening intellectual faculties and avoid premature aging. Magnesium can only be used if calcium and phosphorus are in a proper balance. Hence, an over abundance of one mineral can result in a deficiency of another. Obtaining minerals from whole food source(s) provide the body with a wide variety of minerals necessary and assist in the natural absorption. Mineral supplements should be only an option IF under the supervision of a doctor or nutritional adviser.
