Salt 424 was created by nature in the Dead Sea region, the lowest place on earth and one of the 10 wonders of the natural world. The area is characterized by extreme heat and dry, very clean air, plenty of sunshine, and little precipitation. This unique combination produces salt enriched with 21 natural minerals, in concentrations, 10 times higher than in regular salt.
The Dead Sea area provides the world with many essential natural resources, such as Potassium, Bromine, and Magnesium, as well as the unique salt formed there over hundreds of thousands of years. Residents of the area learned to use the salt for their seasoning and cooking needs, and especially for preserving food. Of course, it was used for trade as well. Throughout history, salt, and especially fine salt, was used as currency by merchants and was considered a valuable asset.
Salt is an ionic mineral compound that is essential for life. Its components, such as sodium chloride (NaCl), play an important role in the human body—in the digestive system, the respiratory system, the nervous system, and in the regulation of fluids. Salt is as essential to the human body as water.
