The Sodium Myth and Why We Need It! Dr.Berg

What is the sodium myth? The truth will surprise you.

Neff oh my gosh this is a big one you know there’s people that say that sodium done one study that shows any relationship between high blood pressure kind of omit unless you read the study they didn’t tell you they also lower the lower blood pressure more than the salt okay so even a recent study that between eating salt or sodium and increasing blood pressure now why

Would means you it’s necessary for survival you can’t live without sodium but you that’s probably a quarter teaspoon a day of salt but realize that salt is sodium so you need a little bit more salt than you do sodium so i’ll show you what kind your heart your fluids it acts like an electrolyte that allows the balance of other minerals to maintain that balance so without

That essential mineral you your brain you need that number two i’m sorry number three low sodium in the blood and that’s from drinking lots of water that people tell you to do and you’re just flushing out the electrolyte so you’re going to end up with a very problems swelling in the brain can people die of hyponatremia so that much water is not not good you want to drink

When you’re thirsty so how do you okay fluid retention now if you have fluid retention in your legs or your body but so instead of reducing sodium it’s much more important to raise the about four times a little more than four sodium where do you get potassium vegetables do you eat enough vegetables to nine cups to get the potassium to balance out the sodium because an only a

Thousand milligrams of potassium so the ratios are off so they will get don’t want to worry about lowering yourself just increase your potassium monosodium glutamate from fast-food restaurants eating sugar depletes after consuming some sugar so again it’s the junk food it’s the msg that that itself you want to consume it in a complex like sea salt tension low adrenal glands

If your adrenal glands are burnt out you’re not there’s one called there’s a bunch of them called mineral corticoids which are happens with the adrenal is you lose salt so you crave salt let’s say at you consume sea salt then you probably want some sweet and some salt issues if glucose issues so your just when you consume that your energy starts situation okay so what type

Of salt is the best himalayan salt is the best salt ago it’s the most pure unpolluted sea salt you don’t want to get the sea salt sewage in there and a lot of chemicals so get pink himalayan salt thing with that is it tastes like eggs okay and a lot of people don’t like the salt it’s called black himalayan salt because that sulfur is really good for conditions but again it

Has a bad odor to it some people can’t do it but think brussels sprouts cabbage it’s all the sulfur type minnow so definitely and get it if not get the pink version but go ahead and use that and use it vegetables you’re totally okay all right i’ll see you in the next video
