Real salt, Celtic Sea Salt & Himalayan salt, contain several minerals and are actually vital for optimal health. Natural salt has been known to help combat a whole host of ailments including stress, depression, emotional disorders, confidence issues, muscle weakness, bladder control problems, diabetes, sleep disorders and arguably cancer.
