effects of using 'Real Salt'.
I had a heart attack 21 years ago at the young age of 49. Following bypass surgery, to replace an underdeveloped artery on my heart. I decided I wanted to live. I had always been active, but had some poor eating habits. I learned to cook and make it healthy. I also learned that healthy can be very tasty. Many of the low fat foods are slightly more expensive, but you live to complain about it.
Over the years, I have collected hundreds of very good tasting recipes. A few are more complicated, but the end result is worth the effort.
One of the big evils promoted by some, is salt. It can cause high blood pressure. As an Army medic in the mid sixties, I learned that low sodium, is far more dangerous than high sodium. I served in Viet Nam and always had salt tablets handy for myself and others. The combination of heat and humidity created a severe problem.
I still have a supply of salt tablets on hand.
Now, fifty plus years later, I trust my body to tell me when I am low on salt and respond to it. One of my daughters, sent a bag of 'Real Salt' several months ago.
At first, I wondered why she would do this. There is not a huge inheritance waiting for her.
Then I tasted it and was hooked. I thought my body was telling my mind that I needed it. I did some reading and found that the real salt is not processed the way the other salt is. It still has all the minerals naturally found in salt.
I grew up in a rural area, on a small farm. Our well water had a high Iron content, which made it taste very good, but never thought to much about it. There were springs in several places on the farm, and I often drank from them.
When we had grain ground at the 'Feed Mill', for animal feed, trace minerals were always added, because the animals needed those minerals to be healthy.
Now it all came together. My body told my brain it needed those minerals and I craved them. My daughter told me that once the minerals your body needs are being supplied, the craving will subside. Now I warn friends and family, that if they try real salt, they will be addicted. Then they are.
I'm at the stage where I am not addicted, but enjoy the flavor and feel rejuvenated by using it. I have more energy. I get the same feeling after eating Iron rich foods, like spinach and beets. Two things that some don't like to eat.
Several years ago, I had a blood test, following a serious problem caused by a tick bite. The hematologist was concerned, because my iron was off the charts high. He assumed that I might be taking Iron pills. I assured that I was not taking iron pills, because I knew they could cause problems for people my age. I told him that my lunch at work consisted of a large spinach salad two or three times a week.
His response was that if it was coming from food, have all you want. (That job involved walking seven to nine miles on an average day).
Once your levels of minerals are restored, you will use less of it, but will still enjoy the taste. The difference is like the difference of night and day.

Best Salt Ever
I have tried a lot of salts and this one is the best out there. Packed full of minerals so my body gets what it needs and tastes great!
Best Salt Ever
You would not expect a salt to have a difference in flavor, but this does and it is subtle, good tasting, and consistent. It's color also makes for a more interesting presentation.
Good flavor in all applications
I've been using this for years. It's the only salt in my kitchen! It works well in all recipes and baked goods.
Real Salt when I want it
Yup, real salt...without the fillers that we see in the grocery store.
Problem is, the local natural market is often sold out. So, Thrive Market ships it to me. Nice.
love real salt!
This salt is not only good for me, it is superior tasting - I haven't found anything I like better!!
No other salt for me
I appreciate that this is pure salt, no anti-caking agents. I enjoy the flavor, seems less salty than my big name brand sea salt. Haven't noticed any grittiness as other reviewers have stated, but I do seem to use more of this than my previous salt.
Redmond Sea Salt
Excellent product, just as represented and shipped PERFECTLY-SAFE AND ON TIME!!!!
Good bag design
Love that it is pure salt and taste is good. A little stronger than I was used to...I dislike how it can be gritty...health benefits outweigh the grit...I will buy again
I threw all other salts out!
This salt is beyond delicious! I'm using less and getting better results. The flavor is so different....it's hard to call anything else "salt" after using this!
go easy on this stuff. it is WAY saltier than himalyan salt and has thrown off a couple of dishes til we figured out what it was. we werent mis-measuring, this stuff needs to be used in moderation!
This is for real
One of the only salts that I do not swell after using. Over processed table salt now has sugar in it, so I could swell and have a sugar fix. Go figure. I am so glad to find Thrive Market with good prices and real natural product. This item can sell for $5 more on the out side. Thrive Market comes very close to navel base prices as well. Thanks Thrive Market for filling in the gap.
It's great! Not overly salty so it allows you to taste your food & enjoy it!

A Premiere Salt.
Premiere salt mined right here in the USA!!! Absolutely wonderful. I am so thrilled to have discovered this company, and am more than pleased to not only get superb, delicious and healthful products, but also proud to support products produced in this incredible nation of ours!!!!
Love, love, love this salt! My daughter introduced it to me and I have banished any other salt from my home! And it's a bargain buying here on Thrive!
Real Salt-Really Good!
Because this is real sea salt, I end up using less of it. Tastes like the salt I grew up with without the fillers (yes, there are fillers in ordinary table salt!).
Great price and tasty salt.
My favorite sea salt
Fast delivery .. my favorite sea salt .. great price
We love this salt. We have met Redmond's employees and they are honest people that I truly believe sell a great product! You can see the minerals in your salt and it's mined from untouched mountains in Utah. I love it!
I've used this brand for years. I bought a shaker bottle more than 20 years ago when I first discovered it on a trip to the Grand Canyon. I have used it ever since. Because of the trace minerals (rock?), it does not fully dissolve. That doesn't bother me. I like the flavor. The fine texture still comes out of my fine-holed salt shaker.
Excellent, and great price.
- Toni Jo
Good everyday use salt. Natural minerals and great flavor.
Really good salt
I love the fact that this salt contains trace minerals, and it's flavour is so much better than old table salt! Once again, Thrive beats the best price I can find locally, and by a long shot.
Extra salty salt
I love salt! And I am lucky to have good blood pressure regardless of what I eat, so I put salt in almost everything I cook. I'm not sure why, but this salt has a more intense flavor than standard salt and other sea salts I've tried. This means you don't need as much! I have been known to warn guests at my house that this is "extra salty salt". I also appreciate the trace minerals and the fact that I can see the different colored grains on my food, unlike white salt which just kind of blends in.
I love this salt, I use it for everything, and I don't have to feel bad about it. The price is right too!
Exceptional product. I love this. I don't have to use as much salt because it has a great taste.
- Thrive Audrey
I love the flavor, but it leaves crunchy, sandy grit in the food. Yuck.
Throw out that table salt!
A definite improvement on the taste of regular table salt, and just as beneficial as the trendy Himalayan or Celtic salts.
Natural salt at its finest!
Whether you are on a Paleo, Vegan, or Gluten Free diet, this is the right salt for you.
This is the purest salt I've had so far. The taste is quite different and so is the texture. Depending on certain foods, the grittiness can be noticeable.
At the beginning, it was difficult not to get distracted from it. However, it contains great health benefits and a high mineral count so it is well worth getting past the granule.

Not all sea salt is created equal
So many brands nowadays are capitalizing on "sea salt" when really it's the same refined, nutritionless stuff.
I've used this brand for a couple years and don't tolerate any other salt in my pantry. It has all the trace minerals without tasting like dirt, and the salt itself is more complementary than overpowering when I use it for cooking. And all the other minerals in it interact superbly with whatever I make.
And the bag design is so convenient. I don't know why other salts don't use this design, no more spilled salt or having to use a funnel, I can just securely pour it right into the shaker.

Real Good, Real Salt
First off, this is not normal salt- keep that in mind. It is a bit stronger than most people are used to and it might throw your taste buds into a frenzy. I tastes really pure and does not come out gritty very often is an excellent seasoning.
I love that it was made in the USA and comes in a cool bag. This is the only salt that I have ever bought that had a spout for dispensing. The negative is also the positive- its pretty strong.
- Justin Ortiz
Helps reduce water retention!
I noticed a few years ago that even the smallest amount of salt was making me retain water. I decided to cut salt out completely just because it wasn't worth it to me. My doctor suggested Redmond Real Salt and I'm so grateful he did! I can't tell the difference when comparing the taste to normal salt, and I can finally enjoy the salty taste on my foods again! It seems like my body recognizes that this is a good, healthy product and I don't have the water retention issues like I used to! Even if you don't have these problems, I definitely recommend this salt!
I'll never buy any other brand of salt
This is hands down the best sea salt you can find. Do yourself a favor and go ahead and put it in your cart. Your body and your taste buds will thank you.
Loved the taste and health benefits of Real Salt however I found it to be "gritty"
The real deal in salt
Redmond offers some incredible salts. I've used their products for over a few years now, and have never found a better source for all of my recipes that call for traditional or flavored salts. Their Onion and Garlic organic salts are certainly among my favorites...and their Kosher course salt is ideal for tenderizing thriftier cuts of grass fed meats. Try their clay products too.
- Mitch Reed
This is some real fine salt. Tasty and wholesome.
One of my Top Brands
The flavor is amazing!

Tasty Sea Salt
I really find this sea salt savory and earthy. It tastes so good! I really feel great about the fact they don't take anything or add anything. I have used many other sea salts over the years, but none had the flavor like this one, nor did they bring out the natural flavor of my foods like this one does. It is absolutely lovely!
Best Sea Salt Out There
I have tried many brands of sea salt, this however is the very best of the best. It is completely natural. They don't take anything away or add anything either making it the most natural sea salt I have ever tried. It is so much better than any other sea salt I have ever had. I really love it! It makes every recipe better with such great flavor and it is healthier than regular table salt. I feel really great about using this salt in my food!

Good For Your Body
I went on a date with a guy who refused to add any salt to his meal unless it was sea salt, and while he was kinda boring, he did end up teaching me a lot about sea salt and why it's MUCH better for your body than the table salt you find in most food and restaurants. I picked up some of this sea salt, and I'm so, so impressed. Just a little bit of this stuff goes a long way. In fact, I compared, and I used about 1/4 of what I normally use in food to salt my food. It has a much more flavorful taste than regular table salt. It also feels a bit more course and granular than regular table salt, but that's a good thing too.
I'm never going back to regular table salt.

You won't look at salt the same way
Until I tasted Real Salt, I thought I knew what good salt was. I'd converted to sea salt after some research, because I knew it was evaporated sea water, pretty pure stuff.
Then I tried what Redmond had to offer and my goodness. There is no comparison. This salt doesn't just make things salty, it brings out flavor like you wouldn't believe. It has all the trace minerals other companies leech out of salt that are healthy and natural and good for your body. Trust me, do yourself a favor and just buy one bag. I swear to you, you won't go back to any other salt. Take the challenge and write a review.

As real as it gets
You don't really understand what this company means by real until you taste its salt. This is pure salt, I'm talking salt with all the elements that make salt natural, none of it filtered out, so you taste the minerals that are captured when salt is sourced. It's quite simply, the best, most pure and earthy salt I've ever tasted in my life.
