Our bodies need a variety of salts (not just sodium), for optimal biological functioning. Boulder Salt® is the first salt product on the market to combine all the important electrolytes into a single product and in a ratio that approximates what should naturally exist in our bloodstream.
Calcium is best known for its role in strengthening bones and teeth but it brings a whole lot more to the table than most people realize. It helps carry messages between the brain and body, works alongside magnesium for muscle contraction, and is key in both nerve transmission and the release of hormones and enzymes into the bloodstream.
Milk and other dairy products like yogurt and cheese are excellent “go-to” sources of calcium. For non-dairy sources consider kale or collard greens, tofu & molasses.
Boulder Salt has 75 mg of calcium per 1/4 teaspoon.
Sodium is critical to our survival, It plays a role in nutrient absorption and transport, proper nerve conduction, muscle contractions, and maintenance of blood volume and blood pressure. Sodium also works in tandem with potassium to maintain proper balance of fluids in the body.
Boulder Salt has 40% less sodium than traditional table salt and sea salt. And a balanced ratio of sodium to potassium, which along with magnesium, helps to maintain a healthy blood pressure.
Potassium like sodium, is critical to maintaining good health and proper metabolic function in the human body. It plays a key role in proper hydration, muscle contractions, regulating heart rate and stabilizing blood pressure.
Avocados, mangoes, bananas, baked potatoes and yams are great sources, as are raisins and coconut water.
Boulder Salt offers 154 mg of potassium in a single 1/4 teaspoon!
Magnesium plays a crucial role in over 300 metabolic reactions within the human body. It is required for energy production, contributes to the formation of our bones and is needed for our bodies to produce DNA, RNA, and many other important molecules. Like sodium and potassium, magnesium is also involved in nerve transmission, muscle contraction, and heart functioning. Magnesium as also been shown to have a calming effect on the brain and may help in preventing migraines.
Where can you find the best sources of magnesium? Nuts, green leafy vegetables and whole grains are top go-to choices. Boulder Salt® is also an excellent source, providing 35% of the RDA in a single serving (heaping ¼ teaspoon).
Alkaline is the term given to the pH in our body when it is above 7.
Our bodies are self-regulating our pH levels every second, but our modern lifestyles expose us to increased acidity and toxicity. Processed foods, pollution, and contaminants are the culprits.
When our bodies are overly acidic our health becomes compromised, and we become susceptible to the growth of harmful bacteria and organisms. An acidic pH is associated with obesity, allergies, disease and even cancer. When our body is too acidic, it can pull alkaline rich minerals from our bones. This can cause fatigue and increases the risk of osteoporosis. If you put the focus on eating and drinking more alkaline foods, your body will see fewer health issues, and you’ll just feel better.
Most fruits and vegetables are alkaline, as is green tea and Boulder Salt.
An alkaline environment is the body’s first line of defense in fighting off disease and staying healthy. Unlike traditional table salt and sea salt, Boulder Salt is alkaline. It also has 40% less sodium, is an excellent source of magnesium and tastes great!
Boulder Salt can be used as a 1:1 replacement in cooking, baking and food prep. Adding Boulder Salt to a bottle of water is an easy way to boost your electrolyte levels and your alkalinity.
