I've gone awhile without salt now, but I just had some with my dinner last night and I noticed it once again: Every time I eat some salt since being on this lifestyle (which is NOT often) I just feel better for some reason. Just more awake and more calm.
Do I have an iodine deficiency perhaps?
Have you read the thread before answering? Humans don't need salt.
This is not meant as a harsh reply, but an invitation to check what's already been said before adding your contribution.
I'm not sure who you're talking to but I will say this...salt is necessary to the body for electrical impulses. So there is a mininum requirerment however its very little. And if you are referring to my statement, no I didn't read the threads before adding mine. I base my statement on facts and don't normally refer to what others have said when making a statement based upon fact. I don't know where you're getting your facts from.
Do you mean salt as in sodium-chloride? Or just natural sodium from plants?
Marco seems to think that you are referring to sodium-chloride when you state that "salt is necessary to the body". You are right about this, if you're talking about natural sodium, but not if you're talking about sodium-chloride aka. table salt.
And btw. 1500 mg of sodium is a lot - I think most people on 30BAD gets less than 1000 mg, maybe even less than 500 mg a day. Maybe some HCRV endurance athletes needs to consume more than that, but it seems that a lot of people thrive on less than 500 mg.
Of course I'm referring to natural sodium from plants of course. Some individuals feel better having closer to the mininum salt requirement Which is 1.5 grams per day equal to approximately 600mg not 1500mg...not sure where you got that figure from. while others will thrive on less. I myself feel much better on less. Very good of you to bring that to my attention.
your organs are like the soft tender tissue of a slugs body
have you ever seen what happens to a slug when you pour salt on it ?
its very painfully fatal
im sure you can put 1+1 together
i think it's somewhat stimulating to your adrenals. don't be a junkie! ;)
