6. Bone health
A popular theory regarding osteoporosis and other bone disorders is that the body uses calcium and other minerals from the bones in order to survive and neutralize acidity in the blood. Sole is thought to help improve bone health because it is full of naturally healthy minerals and has an alkalinizing effect.
And if you’ve heard rumors that salt consumption actually causes osteoporosis, think again. A study published in the Journal of Food and Chemical Toxicology concluded that “for the generally healthy person there is no sound evidence that the consumption of salt at the present average level of 9 grams per day constitutes a risk factor for osteoporosis.” And that’s just for normal, nasty table salt. Considering how good natural, unrefined salt is for your body, it’s fair to say that there’s nothing to worry about!

7. Skin health
Natural salt contains minerals that can help your skin look and feel its best. Chromium fights acne and reduces skin infections. Sulfur keeps skin clean and smooth. It can also help a dry scalp, eczema and rashes that are often a result of a sulfur deficiency. Zinc promotes rapid healing of wounds, boosts the immune system and regulates the activity of oil glands. Iodine helps increase oxygen consumption and the metabolic rate of the skin.
