If you're looking for a natural way to detoxify your body, a salt water cleanse might be the perfect option. In this guide, we'll explain what you should know about salt cleanses, including what they are, how they can support your health, and how to make one at home.

Salt Water Cleanse: The Basics

A salt water cleanse is a detoxifying technique that can be performed on its own or incorporated into other cleansing methods. This type of cleansing is an excellent addition to any healthy lifestyle since it's easy to perform at home and offers a number of health benefits, which we'll cover below.

While salt water cleanses are safe for most people, they might not be suitable for people with high blood pressure, kidney problems, or other health conditions. If you have high blood pressure, it's best to talk to your doctor before attempting the flush. Pregnant people should also speak with a medical professional before cleansing.

Benefits of a Salt Water Cleanse

Salt cleanses help promote better overall health by helping your body eliminate waste and toxins more effectively. Specifically, these cleanses can help:

  • Relieve constipation
  • Reduce bloating
  • Support digestion
  • Alleviate other issues related to the colon and digestive tract
  • Draw toxins out of the body

In addition, cleansing with salt water may improve a person's energy levels and assist with weight management by improving regularity and decreasing water retention. If high-quality natural salt is used, a sea salt cleanse can also help balance mineral and electrolyte levels in the body. Some people even use a salt water flush to prepare for a colonoscopy.

Salt Water Cleanse Recipe

If you'd like to experience the benefits of a salt flush for yourself, here's a simple salt water cleanse recipe you can follow.

  1. Heat one liter of filtered water to about room temperature or slightly hotter. 
  2. Mix the water with two teaspoons of high-quality sea salt (such as bamboo salt) until the salt dissolves. Do not use iodinated table salt.
  3. Drink the salt solution quickly (within five minutes)

It's best to perform a salt water detox in the morning when it's easiest to get the water down on an empty stomach. 

Where to Find High-Quality Salt for Your Cleanse

When making your own salt cleanse, it's important to use high-quality natural sea salt. If you were to use table salt or another variety of processed salt, you might miss out on some of the benefits of cleansing.

You can find this type of natural salt in PIOR Living's online shop. We recommend using purple bamboo salt, the healthiest salt on earth, for cleansing because it's toxin-free, highly alkaline, and rich in key minerals. You can also use a salt tea product (like PIOR Living Radiance Salt Tea) that's designed for detoxification.
