Ep. 148 – How Much Difference Does Salt Intake Make? Real Salt Nutrition & Fasting with Darryl Bosshardt

I am excited to connect with Darryl Bosshardt today! Darryl is passionate about healthily living, healthy eating, and life-long learning. He grew up working for the family mineral business in Redmond, Utah. Then he earned a Bachelor of Science degree at Southern Utah University, followed by an MBA at Western Governors University. Darryl oversees the salt company, Redmond.

Salt is one of the most misunderstood minerals on Earth. For thousands of years, it has sustained life and provided a source of trade. It even got used as currency. However, over the last century, salt has become known to many as a dangerous chemical that should be avoided at all costs. Things are changing, though. Currently, research is returning salt to its place of necessity for human health because without salt, everything dies. Be sure to join us today, to hear Darryl’s story, discover the misconceptions around sea salt, and find out about the vital role that salt plays in our lives. 

“Our bodies are a saline solution in motion.”
