Have You Heard
I was was taken by surprise when I first used this style of fluoride free, natural toothpaste. Having tried many other brands, flavours and formulations in the last few years. I can tell you there are many I like and some that I don’t.
What started off for me many years ago, beginning with toothpaste as a way to remove chemicals specially the bad fluoride from my daily diet wherever and whenever possible, has lead me to help and inform others to change their habits and convert over to all natural, chemical free and organic products.
One of these styles of product is what this article is about, so are natural salt toothpastes better, not only for the daily maintenance of your teeth but for your overall oral health care, lets find out.
What Is Salt
Salt is a mineral composed primarily of sodium chloride (NaCl), a chemical compound belonging to the larger class of salts; salt in its natural form as a crystalline mineral is known as rock salt or halite. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salt
Some of the earliest evidence of salt processing dates to around 6,000 BC, when people living in the area of present-day Romania boiled spring water to extract salts; a salt-works in China dates to approximately the same period. Salt was also prized by the ancient Hebrews, the Greeks, the Romans, the Byzantines, the Hittites, Egyptians, and the Indians. Salt became an important article of trade and was transported by boat across the Mediterranean Sea, along specially built salt roads, and across the Sahara on camel caravans.
Salt is essential to the health of humans and other animals, and it is one of the five basic taste sensations. Salt is used in many cuisines around the world, and it is often found in salt shakers on diners’ eating tables for their personal use on food. Salt is also an ingredient in many manufactured foodstuffs.
Some table salt sold for consumption contains additives which address a variety of health concerns, especially in the developing world. The identities and amounts of additives vary widely from country to country. Iodine is an important micronutrient for humans, and a deficiency of the element can cause lowered production of thyroxine (hypothyroidism) and enlargement of the thyroid gland (endemic goitre) in adults or cretinism in children
Benefits of Salt
Salt believe it or not has many benefits to our health, but can be also bad if over consumed. So remember not to swallow it.
- We need it for digestion
- It helps rehydrate your body
- Assists in the function of insulin
- Helps maintain good oral health

These are only some of the many benefits salt can bring you but please ensure to follow any dietary guidelines and like everything else consume in moderation.
