The number 1 thing you need to add to your diet today!!

Boost metabolism, feel less tired, improve digestion .... just add Salt Water Sole (pronounced so-lay)

 Check out our top 5 Reasons why you should be including Salt Water Sole - Natures electrolyte drink into your daily routine.

What is Salt Water Sole?

To be clear when we tell you to have salt we are not referring to  your regular white table salt here, which is often a dangerous blend of sodium, chloride, glass and sand. Yes you read that correctly

...glass and sand, but that’s a whole other blog for a whole other day. However this makes it even more important to source mineral-rich, unrefined natural salts. Ideally a celtic grey sea salt or Himalyan Pink salt.

Salt is natures electrolyte. An electrolyte is a compound that ionizes when dissolved in liquid, meaning it becomes a charged molecule. Your body needs these charged molecules to help it send electrical signals from one cell to another and assist the kidneys in maintaining fluid balances within the body.

Different types of electrolytes include sodium, potassium, chloride, bicarbonate, calcium, sulphate, magnesium and phosphate.

Why drink Salt Water Sole?

1.Drinking salt water sole will help your body remain hydrated.

That’s right we often get approached by people who declare they drink plenty of water, but are your hydrated or diluted? You may be guzzling back the good stuff however over-drinking and causing the body to become dilute can actually lower our metabolism and provide additional stress to the body. Our body relies on a certain concentration of minerals and electrolytes to function properly.  If we constantly feel thirsty, and keep drinking litre after litre just to spend the day on the toilet, then feeling thirsty again we are not actually hydrated.

It’s like watering a bone dry plant, all the liquid pours out of the bottom without actually getting absorbed where you need it – your cells. When you drink water with a little salt it allows your body to absorb and utilise the fluids you are drinking. For those who constantly feel thirsty you may find yourself not looking for as much water once you are actually remaining hydrated.

2.Salt Water Sole Improves Digestion

Salt water will activate the salivary glands (the first step in the digestion process)

Once in the stomach, salt stimulates hydrochloric acid in the stomach as well as the enzyme that digests protein and helps you break down food to complete the digestion process.

3.Salt Improves quality of sleep.

The trace minerals in salt have a calming effect on the entire nervous system. It’s also well known for reducing stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline in your body allowing you to relax.

For those that wake every night to go the bathroom it can also help prevent the need urinate during the night, to make sure your sleep remains unbroken.

 

4.Natural, Unrefined Salt is rich in Vital Minerals

Without minerals your body is missing the essential building blocks it requires to function and maintain proper nutrition and health.

Mineral deficiencies are becoming more common due to depleted amounts in our soils we grow our vegetables in or poor nutrition.

Salt Water Sole when made with unrefined natural salt is an amazing source of vital minerals. After sodium chloride (salt) the main mineral in unrefined sea salt is magnesium, which virtually everyone needs more of. Just a few of the other many minerals found in unrefined salt are chromium, selenium, zinc and boron.

5.Salt Water Sole is great for your skin.

All of those essential Vitamins and Minerals help support the Immune system and assist with wound healing and prevent scarring. It some cases it can also assist with Acne.

How to make Salt Water Sole?

  • Fill a glass jar with approximately 1/3 unrefined salt (Celtic Sea Salt or Himalayan, already ground)
  • Then fill the jar with filtered water leaving a slight gap at the top.
  • Place a lid on the jar (non metal, ceramic or a BPA free plastic*)
  • Shake and leave sit for 24 hours
  • After 24hours if all of the crystals have dissolved then add some more salt to your water.
  • The Sole is ready when it is saturated and the salt will no longer dissolve. You should have undissolved salt at the bottom of your jar.

*Using metal lids or spoons with your Salt Water Sole can de-ionize your water so stick with plastic, ceramic or wood.

How to drink it?

Each morning add a small amount of sole to a small glass of filtered water.

The amount will vary depending on what your body needs and the concentration of your Sole solution.

Your tongue will tell you exactly how much sole to add to your water. Start with 1/2 tsp of sole.  When you add your sole to your glass of water, taste it. If it tastes the way you believe salt water tastes, then it is perfect. If it tastes like your drowning in the ocean then it’s a little strong. Pour a little water out and dilute the solution with more plain water until it tastes mildly salty. If it doesn’t taste salty enough, you may need to add more than a tsp of sole until the balance is correct for you. Your sense of taste will let you know what your kidneys need and you may find that each day your needs are different.

If you find yourself tired of an afternoon you may also wish to have some Salt Water Sole in the afternoon as well
