I used to know a guy a while back who said to me that he added salt to water as a supplement and it really intrigued me. I'm talking real salt, not tabletop ****, but the kind with trace minerals and all that.

Does anybody know about this or tried it? Google search isn't helpful enough with how much you should take in by body weight.

I need to know the benefits of salt water before I could say how much you should take. My initial reaction is leave it in the ocean.

Don't do it.

Just. Don't.

You get enough from your food.

Salt water is what? Salt+Water.

I don't see how that is good as a supplement.

it has lots of minerals. I cant get more specific than that. I dont use it as a supplement but I use it as an alternative to table salt. table salt has additives that are not good for you and beleive it or not...sugar.

I'm talking about adding something like Real Salt (http://www.realsalt.com) to water. I know that my sodium intake is not that high to begin with, so I see no problem as long as you are flushing your system with normal water. Amirite?!?!

Too much will kill you. I'd just eat a damn multivitamin if you don't think you get enough minerals.

The only thing multivitamins dont provide enough of is sodium (but we get enough from our food), and calcium.

So just take a multivitamin, eat normally with lots of milk.

Calcium is the 5th most common element in the world. Virtually all grown foods contain it. With or without milk, as long as you are eating your veggies, there is no reason you should have a deficiency of calcium.
