We’ve written many articles where we’ve raved about the benefits of salt for teeth and gums. In our article, “How Sea Salt Benefits Your Teeth and Gums”, we explain how sea salt can soothe inflammation and prevent reinfection, reduce bacteria, and fight bad breath. 

But if there had to be royalty among the sea salt out there, French Grey sea salt would take the crown!

French grey sea salt or Celtic sea salt is harvested by hand in Brittany, France. The extraction method follows a 2000-year-old Celtic traditional technique, which involves the collection and evaporation of seawater in salt pans. French grey sea salt is known for its higher than usual moisture content and unique light grey color.

French grey sea salt contains 75 beneficial minerals and trace elements including:

  • sodium
  • calcium
  • potassium
  • magnesium (which is what gives it that distinctive grey color)
  • iron
  • manganese
  • zinc
  • Iodine
  • phosphorous

French grey sea salt has so many amazing healing benefits because it helps to balance out the minerals in the human body.

Other benefits include: 

  • Preventing and getting rid of excessive mucus from the body
  • Regulating blood sugar and blood pressure
  • Reducing water retention
  • Quick healing from wounds or injuries
  • Improving heart health
  • Extracting excess acidity and toxins from brain cells such as aluminum (which can be very damaging)
  • Getting rid of excess acidity in the body and maintaining a normal acid-alkaline balance 
  • Improving respiratory system
  • Improving adrenal health
  • A calming effect on the central nervous system
  • Increasing energy levels
  • Boosting immunity to disease, infections, and illness
  • Preventing kidney stones
  • Controlling the production of saliva 

The benefits really are endless!

Another big thing to mention is that there really is no sea salt that benefits your teeth and gums like French grey sea salt! Really. There isn’t.

This is why it is one of the most important and essential ingredients in our all-natural herbal tooth and gum formula.

Our French grey sea salt is harvested on the Atlantic coast of France by paludiers (salt harvesters) who do everything by hand. As we mentioned before, salt has been harvested using traditional methods for over 2000 years and seen as very demanding but noble work.

The French grey sea salt that is included in Good-Gums is certified by the prestigious Nature et Progrés (one of the world’s oldest and most demanding organic certification bodies).  Although all sea salts are natural, this certification ensures the quality of the salt.  The taste remains pure because no metal instruments are used to gather and package these salts.  The ponds are required to be a safe distance from roads and industry to help ensure the salts remain free of pollution.  Only exceptionally clean sea waters are used.
