Natural Salt Alternatives From Andi Lew

Andi Lew is a qualified food, lifestyle and wellness coach who has been working with functional fitness athletes and their diets for several years. The Rx Review caught up with the published author recently to talk about salt and some natural salt alternatives athletes should be taking!

Today we are talking salt!

Now in the Western World we are often told to avoid three things: sugar, fat and salt. But what if I told you there were actual good salts that not only you can consume, but you should be consuming…

Of course, processed salts like iodized salt isn’t great for your body, but there are many un-processed salts that actual;y give you essential minerals like Peruvian Pink Salt.

Salts like these, which are generally pink in colour, are rich in trace minerals that our bodies need for performance, espcecialy when doing functional fitness and CrossFit trianing. After tough workouts we need to replace minerals like magnesium and iron and unprocessed salts a great way to get them back in your body. They are also rich in calcium so they are great for bones and muscle recovery.

The salt I highlight in the above video is Peruvian Pink Salt, which is one of the most uncontaminated salts going around. It’s basically minerals disguised as the word salt.

Check out the above video to find out some great salt alternavtives for functional fitness athletes and what makes them so good.
