THE SALT

Since 1982, our company M. P. Theodorou (Salt Industry) has been processing and packaging natural sea salt. With years of experience on our side, we have managed to successfully combine nature with technology without altering the products natural form.

Salt is a vital substance for the survival of all living creatures, particularly humans. Water and salt regulate the water content of the body. Water itself regulates the water content of the interior of the cell by working its way into all of the cells it reaches. It has to get there to cleanse and extract the toxic wastes of cell metabolisms. Salt forces some water to stay outside the cells. It balances the amount of water that stays outside the cells. There are two oceans of water in the body; one ocean is held inside the cells of the body, and the other ocean is held outside the cells. Good health depends on a most delicate balance between the volume of these oceans, and this balance is achieved by salt - unrefined salt.

Initially, the process of water filtration and its delivery into the cells is more efficient at night when the body is horizontal. The collected water, that mostly pools in the legs, does not have to fight the force of gravity to get onto the blood circulation. If reliance of this process of emergency hydration of some cells continues for long, the lungs begin to get waterlogged at night, and breathing becomes difficult. The person needs more pillows to sit upright to sleep. This condition is the consequence of dehydration. However, you might overload the system by drinking too much water at the beginning. Increases in water intake must be slow and spread out until urine production begins to increase at the same rate that you drink water.



When we drink enough water to pass clear urine, we also pass out a lot of the salt that was held back. This is how we can get rid of edema fluid in the body; by drinking more water. Not diuretics, but more water!! In people who have an extensive edema and show signs of their heart beginning to have irregular or very rapid beats with least effort, the increase in water intake should be gradual and spaced out, but not withheld from the body. Naturally, salt intake should be limited for two or three days because the body is still in an overdrive mode to retain it. Once the edema has cleared up, salt should not be withheld from the body.


WHAT IS SALT

- Salt is a clear and brittle mineral

- The chemical formula is NaCl (Sodium Chloride)

- Salt can be found in three different forms:

  •     Sea Salt
  •     Rock Salt
  •     Vacuum Salt

 

 

 

WHY SALT IS VITAL

75% of the human body consists of water which is found in our tissues, cells, blood, etc. and is a brine solution, very similar to sea water.

The adult body contains up to 300g of salt and requires about 3g each day to replace what goes lost through sweat. Man cannot produce salt itself and is therefore compelled to obtain it from food.
