2. How is it harvested?

Here is a list of our salts and their respective harvesting methods:

Light Grey Celtic-  Hand harvested using method invented by the Celts who settled this region of France.  Seawater at high tide is trapped in estuaries until it evaporates to a brine, in which it is guided by the salt farmer through a series of clay-lined beds until by the end it is crystallizing.  The farmer uses wooden rakes to pull the sunken crystals imparted with the grey color from the bed of the harvesting ponds.  With little more done than natural draining, the yield is a moist, natural crystal salt with the brine, or “bitterns” still intact.

Fine Ground Celtic-  This salt comes from the Light Grey Celtic, just low-temperature dried and crushed for convenience. Great for baking and as a transition salt (looks the closest to regular salt)

Gourmet Kosher-  Hand harvested by salt farmers from lined beds where seawater is piped in and allowed to evaporate. As the crystals form they are kept in motion, yielding a beautiful, tiny, delicate crystal.
Makai Pure- Greenhouse harvested salt.  The seawater is taken from deep ocean currents where there is higher salinity, which yields a high-mineral salt with beautiful natural chunks and flakes.

Kosher Celtic-  Naturally harvested from salt ponds where the seawater is naturally filtered up through the ground.  This is the most moist salt we have.  Also for its price the highest minerals.  Even the fine ground variety is very moist, full of the mineral-rich brine.

Flower of the Ocean-  This is the “cream of the crop” of salts.  By skimming the crystals off of the surface of the brine, only the most delicate crystals are caught before they sink to become the Light Grey Celtic salt.  Flower of the Ocean is a culinary treasure, known as a “finishing salt” or an “expediting salt” to be pinched on food right before serving.  No need for a grinder with this salt, as the crystals are easily crushed between the fingers.

3. Is there Iodine?
4. What is your best salt?
5. How do you ensure it is just salt?

We strive to ensure that the salt you get from us is just salt as Mother Nature intended.  Our producers test at the source and we do annual 3rd party testing.  We test for pollutants like mercury, lead, and aluminum.  We also test for radiation, petroleum, and micro-plastics.

6. Where I can I find your salt?

Our salt can be found at these fine Retailers.



A New Way to Hydrate: Celtic Sea Salt® Electrolyte Powder

A New Way to Hydrate Celtic Sea Salt® Electrolyte Powder

Dr. Lynne August, M.D. was inspired over 30 years ago by Jacques deLangre, founder of the Celtic Sea Salt® brand, to research electrolyte formulas. Her formulas are based on the salt and mineral content of ocean and soil, cells and blood. While monitoring the effects of electrolytes on blood chemistry of thousands of individuals, Dr. August ultimately developed Celtic Sea Salt® Electrolytes that recharge cell batteries - the foundation of health and vitality.

Most people are dehydrated.

Many people drink too much or too little water. Even with the right amount of water dehydration can result from too little or too much salt and the use of poor quality salt. Also, a deficiency of electrolytes, or an imbalance in electrolyte ratios, is very common and causes dehydration.

Some indicators of dehydration:

  • high or low blood pressure
  • stress,
  • use of caffeine and/or alcohol
  • inflammation
  • high or low cholesterol
  • an aversion to (or a dislike for) water or salt,
  • unquenchable thirst
  • cravings for salty foods
  • absent or excessive sweating
  • a low salt diet

The need for water to hydrate is obvious.

Bodies are over 60% water. However, water alone is usually not sufficient for hydration. Adequate intake of the right salt and maintenance of the right amounts and ratios of electrolytes are as essential as water.

Electrolytes are essential.

The primary electrolytes in the body are sodium, chloride, potassium, magnesium, sulfate and phosphate.

Why are these electrolytes?

When each of these is dissolved in the body fluids they become ions. Ions are electrically charged, positively or negatively. What distinguishes these electrolytes from other charged ions is the marked difference in their concentrations inside versus outside the cells.

This difference in concentrations inside versus outside the cells creates a charge on cell membranes, making each cell a battery. The cell battery provides the spark that “burns” fuel (food) with oxygen. And, in turn, the energy generated from burning fuel charges the cell battery by actively maintaining the wide difference in the concentrations of the electrolytes inside versus outside the cell.

 

In short, hydrating is synonymous with charging our cells, our body battery.

 

Celtic Sea Salt® Electrolyte Powder contains all six primary electrolytes.

The quantities and ratios of these six electrolytes are designed to charge our body battery. Once charged cells power muscles to move, nerves to feel, glands to make hormones or enzymes, bones to remodel, ears to hear and cells to reproduce.

Is Celtic Sea Salt® dissolved in water an electrolyte?

Yes, water becomes an electrolyte if there are any salts and minerals dissolved in it, even small amounts. Simply put, electrolytes conduct electricity whereas water absent of all dissolved salts and minerals does not.

However, Celtic Sea Salt® dissolved in water does not charge the cell battery as described above. The ratios of potassium, magnesium, phosphates and sulfates to sodium and chloride in Celtic Sea Salt® are very low, well below the cells’ requirements to charge the cell batteries.

Is Celtic Sea Salt® recommended in addition to Celtic Sea Salt® Electrolyte Powder?

Celtic Sea Salt® brings out the taste of food. Taste, as opposed to the dictates of the latest diets, food fads and so-called scientific evidence, is our surest ally for a healthy appetite.

We have a healthy appetite if our tastes and desires choose whole foods – foods as found in Nature – in the amounts we need them at the time we need them. No web searches, no calculations of calories or of the macro and micro nutrient contents of our diet can even begin to replicate a healthy appetite.

Secondly, just as raw unprocessed sugar cane – a whole food - contains a host of vitamins, organic minerals and phyto-nutrients in specific ratios to the actual sugar in the cane - so Celtic Sea Salt® has a host of organic trace electrolytes and minerals in specific ratios to its sodium chloride content.

 

Minerals and colloids (primarily organic acids) are responsible for the gray color of Celtic Sea Salt®. The naturally occurring colloids enhance mineral absorption. There is much more value in the small amounts of readily assimilated organic minerals in Celtic Sea Salt® compared to the larger amounts of inorganic minerals supplied by supplements.

 

Most salt consumed is white and dry, indicating only sodium chloride remains, all minerals and colloids having been stripped. And, like most “pure” white dry sugar consumed, sodium chloride by itself is a chemical. To the contrary, Celtic Sea Salt® is a food, a whole food, as found in Nature.

 

Does Celtic Sea Salt® Electrolyte Powder help chronic conditions?

 

While electrolyte deficiencies and imbalances are rarely if ever the only explanation for common chronic conditions, they certainly may be a contributing factor. These chronic conditions range from fatigue, achy weak muscles, toxicity, headaches and pain to dry skin, high or low blood pressure and brain fog.

 

Chronic conditions invariably have a multitude of “causes” so, even in the unlikely event a “magic bullet” appears to solve them, in truth they continue to progress, often out of sight. Therefore, do not try to “treat” chronic conditions. Use a chronic condition as an indicator light on your dash – it’s time to cultivate health, starting with charging your cell batteries.

 

Many benefits have been reported by physicians and health practitioners, athletes, travelers, octogenarians and teenagers, dieters, party-goers, performers, zest-seekers and more who recommend and take this electrolyte supplement. Celtic Sea Salt® Electrolyte Powder not only cultivates health, it cultivates health according to Nature.

 

Dr. August also developed the Health Equations Blood Test Evaluation, based upon discernible quantum forces at play in blood chemistry, and also inspired by her practice of biological farming.

CAUTION: The Celtic Sea Salt® Electrolyte Powder should not be used if there is kidney, liver or heart failure or any other serious illness or trauma. Electrolytes must be medically managed in any serious illness so all supplemental electrolytes are contraindicated.
