Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Why Nature's Cargo™ Sea Salts?
A. Just as "processed" grains and natural sweeteners become empty white starches and sugars, likewise, mined and processed salts become devitalized and demineralized. The result is refined 'sodium-chloride', a harsh chemical the body does not recognize and cannot use to maintain good health.
Q. What minerals are contained in Nature's Cargo™ Sea Salts?
Chloride 50.6%, Sodium 35.5%, Magnesium .429%, Calcium .3150%, Strontium .00864%, Copper .000525%, Selenium .00029%, Manganese .00017%
Q. Why are minerals essential to achieve/maintain homeostasis?
A. For the Cells:
Electrolytes produce the "energy sparks" that keep our bodies functioning. Without that "spark", created by the positive ion from quality salt, balance and equilibrium are compromised. As energy is exerted, body salts are lost through perspiration, and excretion through the kidneys. Our bodies do not store salt for future use - it must be replenished regularly, especially during and after strenuous exercise and work. It's no secret that we are salty beings and do require a diet that DOES include 'natural' salt!
From the moment salt enters the body the magic of digestion begins. Good digestion begins in the mouth when we chew our food. When good salt combines with saliva to start the process, the taste is intuitive; you just know it's right! In order to promote good digestion and produce hydrochloric acid, salt must be present. A balanced sea salt with the right proportions of sodium, magnesium, and potassium, along with the other minerals and trace elements found in seawater, fill the extracellular fluids of the body with everything necessary to allow nutrients in, and waste to pass out through the cell walls.
For The Active and Athletic:
Many athletes, and outdoor workers, mix Nature's Cargo™ Sea Salts in water bottles, or place a few crystals under the tongue, to replace lost salt and electrolytes and report less cramping, light-headedness and fatigue.
For Raw Food Diets:
Balanced and natural salt, such as Nature's Cargo™ Sea Salts, with all the minerals and trace minerals intact, promote the body's ability to break down complex carbohydrates, celluloids, and chlorophyll. Unfortunately, today's depleted soils now yield foods much lower in natural salt. Nature's Cargo™ Sea Salts bring to life the naturally great taste of grains, fruits, and vegetables.
Q. Why is Radiant Life offering another Sea Salt?
A. After completing a comprehensive long-term study of the French sea salt industry, and in keeping with our policy to maintain the highest standard of cleanliness and purity of our products, we want to ensure that our customers have access to the purest, pollution free salts available.
It has been discovered, through independent laboratory analysis, that the heavy metal 'Lead' is now present in all brands of French harvested sea salts. Unfortunately, our studies indicate this to be an increasing trend. This is not acceptable to us. Please refer to the following analysis for details.
In its place we are excited to introduce our new salt line, Nature's Cargo Crystal Sea Salts, harvested in the pristine waters off Central America. Laboratory testing indicates this to be one of the purest, pollution free salts available with a taste and quality of the highest level!
