Sodium is needed for adrenal function
Citrus fruit are hepato-protective

How: ¼ teaspoon salt + glass of water

Lemon: High in Vitamin C, citric acid for digestion
Grapefruit: High in Vitamin C, potassium & antioxidants

Himalayan Salt (Pink): Adrenal, sinus, bone support
Real Salt (Redmond): Underground salt deposit in Utah from ancient sea bed so less chance of pollutants than sea salt of today
Celtic Sea Salt: Opt for grey, cloudy, beige. Alkalises, immune support, brain function
Cranking it up a level
D3 + K2 Drops: Ideally get your blood levels for Vitamin D3 tested but I’m yet to find many who pass first time. Good D3 levels are beneficial for many health markers which aids in fat loss, performance & muscle building.
