Health benefits of drinking warm salt water

If there was a simple, low cost, effective way to improve your overall general health wouldn’t you do it? There just so happens to be such a thing and all that it involves is warm water enhanced with sea salt. When you drink a glass of salt water your body starts to immediately benefit from it and in just 7 days your health is vastly improved. The solution quickly starts to remove toxins throughout the body and that in turn makes cells grow back stronger.

To harness the healing properties of salt water simply add 2 teaspoons of sea salt (not table salt) to 1 litre of lukewarm water and stir or shake until you no longer see any salt granules in the glass or jar. Drink all of the solution on an empty stomach, first thing in the morning, for seven days straight. After one week you should stop for the next week, and then you can repeat it every other week thereafter. It may taste a bit too salty for your palette, but your body will thank you in the end!

There are many additional benefits beyond the detox aspect of the drink. The most obvious being hydration, and when all natural sea salt is added to filtered water you’re feeding your body even more nutrients and minerals. Salt water also works to stimulate digestive enzymes in your saliva and stomach that help to break up food and thus speeds up the entire process. Salt contains many healthy minerals which create an alkalizing effect that neutralizes acidity in the bloodstream. This benefits and improves bone health, especially in individuals with osteoporosis issues.

Another reason to drink salt water is that unrefined salt is known to reduce both adrenaline and cortisol levels. These stress hormones are a factor in relation to insomnia and besides keeping people up at night they also make you feel jittery. By reducing their levels salt helps to calm and soothe the nervous system and that helps you get a better night’s sleep. Finally, salt water contains a variety of minerals that all greatly benefit your skin. For example, iodine increases the metabolic rate and oxygen consumption of the skin. Chromium does wonders to alleviate dry scalp and reduces the prevalence of skin infections. Sulphur makes skin appear more radiant and glowing by keeping it smooth and clean. And lastly, zinc regulates oil glands and helps wounds heal quickly.

NOTE: If you have hypertension or any pre-existing medical conditions consult your doctor before beginning the cleanse.
