Salt and Jing’s Vegetable Stock – Powering your body

Enzymes power every living cell in our body.  Enzymes are special types of proteins that your body uses to initiate basic chemical reactions. Without enzyme activity, most of these reactions would not occur fast enough to sustain human life.

Three examples of enzyme usages in your body include the digestion of the food, copying of the information in your DNA and the burning of a vital source of energy called glucose to power your body and brain.

Enzymes cannot work, however, without co-factors. The co-factors the body uses are in the form of minerals, which are found in rich soil, in certain foods, and in abundance in Himalayan salt which we use in the vegetable stock.

Himalayan salt has spent over 250 million years maturing under extreme tectonic pressure and is full of trace minerals, including potassium, calcium and magnesium. Himalayan salt assists enzymatic pathways, supports the generation of hydroelectric energy in your cells, promotes a healthy pH balance in your cells, regulates water in your body, preventing dehydration which creates lethargy and increases absorption of food particles through your intestinal tract, among other benefits.

Jing’s vegetable stock is mineral-dense and should be used in your cooking for flavour, other than spices no other flavouring is needed. It can also be used as a nourishing hot drink at any time of day.

Table salt does not have any of the properties of the salt we use as table salt contains 97.5% sodium chloride and 2.5% chemicals such as moisture absorbents as it has been highly processed and is reaped of all of its minerals. We advise you to throw table salt in the bin. This is why salt gets a bad rap. But sodium and potassium together contained in natural salt is vital for life.

Not only are Himalayan salt and our vegetable stock important to power enzymatic pathways but also via the sodium content that allows the cells in our body to bind to water and maintain intra- and extracellular fluids in the right balance. Sodium is an electrically charged molecule and along with potassium helps maintain electrical gradients across cell membranes, which is critical for nerve transmission, muscular contraction, and various other functions.

Salt is also essential to the regulation of blood pressure

Vital to for the clearance of the lungs of mucus (essential for asthma cases)

Aids in the rapid healing of infection and viral overwhelm

Crucial for balancing sugar levels in the blood

Needed for the generation of hydroelectric energy in the cells (the body’s power source)

Integral in the process of absorption of food particles through the intestinal tract

Essential for preventing muscle cramps and critical for making the structure of the bones strong (osteoporosis is largely the result of a shortage of water and salt)
