There’s a new salt star on the block…Kruschen salts. They may sound like a new thing but these mineral salts have actually been used for centuries to support health.
Salt has had a shaky old time in the popularity stakes over the years. It was once a highly prized commodity to our ancestors, “table salt” is sometimes viewed as the main culprit behind modern health issues. On the other hand, we’ve also witnessed the wellness world herald the arrival of Himalayan, Epsom & sea salts (to name a few!), so we’re increasingly aware that salt is not just about making our food taste better!
What are Kruschen salts?
And why are they swiftly gaining popularity by health-conscious people? Simply put, Kruschen salts are minerals, and contain a number of ingredients including:
- Citric Acid
- Magnesium Sulfate
- Potassium Chloride
- Potassium Iodate
- Potassium Sulfate
- Sodium Chloride (table salt)
- Sodium Sulfate
When salt lost popularity there for a while, Kruschen salts also fell by the wayside. However, people are increasingly including these salts into their daily wellness routine.
What are the benefits of Kruschen salts?
- They can support healthy digestion
- They can support regular bowel motions
- They support muscle and joint comfort
- They are a good dietary source of trace minerals that can be low in a modern western diet. Trace minerals support many functions in the body, including the health of the thyroid gland, which is responsible for our body's metabolism. Trace minerals are essential but can be missing from soils and processed foods.
- They can support normal alkalinity in the body. Normal, healthy alkalinity is important for a healthy immune system and recovery for ills and chills.
One of Kruschen salts most appealing properties is that they support the body’s natural detoxification processes. Our bodies encounter environmental toxins as part of our daily lives, so we can’t underestimate the importance of having healthy and efficient detoxification pathways.
Kruschen salt minerals are generally regarded as safe to consume, however anyone advised to be on a low-sodium diet should be cautious about taking them. As always, it’s best to check with your health practitioner before making any significant dietary changes by way of supplementing with foods or medicines.
As is becoming more and more evident, salt is more than just a flavor jump-start. Kruschen salts are helping shake up the way we view salt…for the better!
What about other mineral salts?
Inside our body, mineral salts play key roles in hundreds of day-to-day metabolic tasks. They work synergistically with each other to keep us healthy; their roles are interrelated. They complement each other and when it comes to absorption, they can optimise one another - taking them together is great for bioavailability. Because of the way they work together in the body, it makes sense to take a variety of mineral salts in combination.
Multimineral salts offer up to 72 essential and trace mineral salts, much higher than the six found in Kruschen Salts. Multimineral salts are naturally sourced from either sea water or mineral rich clays. They come in liquid form and under many names, colloidal minerals, concentrated mineral drops and ionic minerals.
