Publisher's Summary

We all know the dangers of sugar and salt: but the danger attributed to the second white crystal has more to do with getting too little of it, not too much. Too little salt can shift the body into semi-starvation mode, causing insulin resistance, and may even cause twice as much fat to be absorbed for every gram that's consumed.

Too little salt in certain populations can also actually increase blood pressure as well as resting heart rate. In order to hydrate and nourish our cells, transmit nerve signals, contract our muscles, ensure proper digestion and breathing, and maintain proper heart function, we need salt.

In this book, a leading cardiovascular research scientist and doctor of pharmacy overturns conventional thinking about salt and explores the little-understood importance of it, the health dangers of having too little, and how salt can actually help you improve sports performance, crush sugar cravings, and stave off common chronic illnesses.

    "Good history of dietary guidelines for salt."

    Why salt is very important and why we are told to eat too little of it. The most important part is the dangers of too l little salt and when we deplete the most salt and how to become in tune of how much our body needs. Worth a read.

    "Great book upending dogma"

    This book makes a great case that low sodium diets are unattainable and likely damaging to health. Backed with good evidence and a strong message.

    "Worth a listen if you want to be healthy"

    Good book, I'm pro salt and haven't listened to the RDA of salt in years but still learned a lot from it. Wish the reader could pronounce satiety correctly for the amount of times it was said. Would recommend to anybody looking to ignore the propaganda and start getting healthy.

    "Informative, surprising and backed by sciencw"

    "The Salt Fix" is as important to nutrition sanity as the top sellers of the genre, like Nina Teicholtz's "The Big Fat Surprise" and Gary Taube's "The Case Against Sugar", to name a couple. The author of "The Salt Fix" not only gives us a history lesson as to how we ended up with such low recommendations for salt intake, but also goes into exceptional detail regarding why we need salt to live, and live well. I've only just finished this book but I can already tell I'll be reading it many times over in the coming months and years, in the hopes of "absorbing" and integrating all the information and details into my daily life as well as the lives of my loved ones.

    "Changing my life!!!"

    Everything you have ever heard or read about salt could be wrong. What if eating more salt that helps keep us thin and be the answer to rather than the problem of our nations health problems. This book is like the answer to so many questions I've had about salt. Frankly YOU NEED MORE SALT!!! I watched as my grandma eat a perfect low salt low fat diet and was miserable so her last day. I'm huge about how bad we need FAT now we can welcome salt back to the table and embrace it. It may be the cure for all the things you think cutting it out should have been.

    Lots of good information presented in a logical way. I'm beginning to question ALL of my previous dietary knowledge!
