Healthy Benefits of Drinking Warm Salt Water
1. Helps Digestion
Saltwater stimulates salivary glands function and activation in the mouth, and the secretion of the enzyme called amylase. Indeed, digestion begins with the action of amylase in the mouth.
On the other hand, salt hastens a protein-digesting enzyme and hydrochloric acid in the stomach, thus helps in the process of food decomposition. Therefore, salt water regulates digestion and absorption of nutrients.
Saltwater provides minerals which are beneficial for detoxification of the whole body system. Furthermore, this drink is a potent anti-bacterial agent thus doubles the detoxification effect on the body, and eliminates bacteria and toxins.
3. Improves Bone Health
The body neutralizes bloodstream acidity by using calcium and other minerals as well which leads to suffering from many bone diseases, including osteoporosis. These minerals can be refilled by the use of salt water, thus bone health improves.
4. Improves Skin Health
The minerals contained in salt, such as zinc, sulfur, chromium, and iodine, are very beneficial for healthy skin. Zinc controls oil glands and promotes healing of wounds. Sulfur makes the skin soft and treats eczema and rash. Chromium protects the scalp of dryness. And last but not least, iodine enhances skin metabolism and the supply of oxygen.
5. Promotes Weight Loss
Saltwater promotes weight loss by reducing appetite, so prevents food over-consumption and stops cravings for unhealthy food. Thus, if you consume salt water regularly you will control your appetite and lose weight rapidly. Furthermore, your body will absorb more nutrients from the food consumed.
6. Treats Inflammations
The amount of salt that the body requires and needs is 8 grams (one and a half teaspoons) on a daily basis. The body falls into a crisis called sodium-sparing if we don’t provide the amount needed, in order to keep fluid balance and blood pressure.
Inflammation can be caused by this state of crisis due to the high levels of renin (an enzyme) and aldosterone (a hormone). When the body lacks salt the levels of renin and aldosterone increase quickly.
