Re: sea salt

I always thought that salt is bad in any amount. Anyways, I do not think our ancestors had access to it in paleo times...

Re: sea salt

Cordain (Paleo-Diet) does not consider salt of any kind to be paleo.

I assume paleo people would have used salt from sea water and from mineral deposits when they had it available, although probably not in quantities anywhere approaching modern diets.

That's not true. Your body needs salt to help hydrate you and distribute electrolytes after an intense workout.

Re: sea salt

I am about to hit the sack so I won't search for it, but there was some supplemental reading after a WOD post a while back - maybe 45-60 days ago. Use Google's site search maybe? I will try for it tomorrow if no one found it.
