The term "Sea Salt" is used to describe many salt products. Technically ALL salt mined on earth can be called sea salt. Most of these are mined in areas of salt beds left from ancient seas that evaporated long ago. Over time, these salt beds are subjected to geological pressure and moisture. These geological processes leach away minerals and elements, while concentrating others. These salts no longer provide the spectrum of minerals and elements contained in seawater. Many consider salt mined from these ancient beds "earth salts".
Earth salt's coloring runs in the red or pink spectrum, indicating high levels of iron. Charles Walters, ACRES USA, explained that feeding this type of salt to livestock feed programs by producers with high iron in their soil/forage or water can cause health issues for livestock. Feeding red mineral salts to livestock foraging on hay or drinking water with high iron content causes iron toxicities blocking the uptake of other important minerals and trace elements. He believed that Michiganís problems with bovine tuberculosis could be due to misdiagnosis and was actually iron toxicity.
There are inexpensive white sea salts available that are created from either seawater or mined from the earth. Many livestock producers offer inexpensive white salt to their livestock. These inexpensive salts are mined from the earth OR it is "sea salt" that is retrieved from seawater. Although it is white in color, this salt contains 97-99% NaCl and only one to three percent other minerals and trace elements, due to environmental impact and processes used to retrieve the salt. Livestock ingest greater quantities of inexpensive white or red colored salt because they are less water soluble and lower in minerals and trace elements.
To be called sea mineral solids or "sea salt," as defined by Dr. Maynard Murray, MD*, sea salt cannot be touched by rain or leached of minerals and trace elements, and contain no more than 82-85 percent sodium chloride (NaCl) with balanced mineral and trace elements in the remaining 15-17 percent.
Sea Essential Mineral Salt is solar dehydrated seawater from a desert estuary receiving less than one-half inch of rainfall annually, providing the complete spectrum of minerals and trace elements found in seawater. Because of this, you are giving your livestock the highest quality livestock salt available.
*Maynard Murray was a medical doctor who researched the crucial importance of minerals - especially trace elements - to plants and animals. Beginning in 1938 and continuing through the 50s, Dr. Murray used sea solids - mineral salts remaining after water is evaporated from seawater, proving the benefits contained in "real" sea salt or sea solids for plant and animals.
Sea Essentials Mineral Salt is an excellent addition to all livestock feeding programs.
