Mass-produced table salt is processed and loses so much of its natural mineral content, that iodine is added back in, as well as anti-caking agents. The so-called 'raw', unprocessed salts (Cornish Sea Salt is one) hang on to the all-important minerals that are hugely beneficial to human health.
Cornish Sea Salt is harvested from such a special geological location that it retains more than 60 natural minerals that cling on to the sodium chloride and stay there.
The most important of these are potassium, magnesium and calcium, vital to human wellbeing. We all know why we need calcium but magnesium and potassium are less understood.
For the wellbeing of nerves and cells, to muscles and regulating blood sugar levels, even influencing sleep and anxiety, magnesium is essential for our bodies, yet one of the commonest mineral deficiencies in modern life. Potassium helps to regulate the level of fluids in the body and ensures correct functioning of the heart. Neither are optional for a healthy life.
