Himalayan Sea Salt - Retains Fluid & Regulates Key Functions
Athletes know that maintaining optimum levels of salt in the body is a must for both performance and endurance.
Salt helps to regulate key functions in the body including muscle contraction, nerve function, blood volume, and acid-base balance. When you decrease your salt intake, your body will compensate by excreting potassium, which will cause a decrease in the fluid volume of your muscle cells. This hurts their ability to grow. Increasing salt intake can increase muscle size by adding more fluid volume. A higher volume of intracellular fluid also increases protein turnover, further supporting growth. Finally, many critical amino acids are sodium-dependent. This means they are able to enter a muscle cell only when accompanied by a sodium molecule.
Himalayan Sea Salt contains over 80 minerals and elements - Himalayan salts are mineral packed crystals that formed naturally within the earth. They are made up of 85 per cent sodium chloride and 15 per cent other trace minerals including sulphate, magnesium, calcium, potassium, bicarbonate, bromide, borate, strontium, and fluoride.
Because of these minerals Himalayan Sea Salt can:
- Create an electrolyte balance
- Increase hydration
- Balance pH (alkaline/acidity) and help to reduce acid reflux
- Strengthen bones
- Help the intestines absorb nutrients
- Improve circulation
- Dissolve and eliminate sediment to remove toxins
Each serve of Peak Chocolate contains 29mg of pure Himalayan Rock Salt.
