Sole water boasts lots of health benefits, and may even help to heal adrenal fatigue. Read all about the benefits and how to make sole water below.
With so many purported health benefits, you need to know how to make sole water, but you also might want to know why you should.
Sole water (pronounced “sol-ay”) may be a key ingredient to healing adrenal fatigue. That’s why you’ll find it in our adrenal fatigue recovery protocol.
Best of all, many people notice the benefits almost immediately!
There are three main reasons to drink sole water:
Sole water is rich in minerals
Salt gets a bad rap for causing high blood pressure, but did you know that good salt has tons of good health benefits? Salt is an amazing source of trace minerals, many of which you can’t easily get anywhere else. By making a strong salt water infusion, you are jam-packing it with these minerals, which include iodine, copper, zinc, magnesium, calcium, and more!
You may be wondering how to choose good salt, not only to make sole water, but also for every day culinary uses. Here are a few good options:
- Real Salt– a favorite for use in cooking, flavoring, and this sole water. You can buy it in bulk if you use a lot of it. Real Salt comes from ancient sea beds in the US (Utah), so it is not subject to modern-day ocean contamination. It is pink with flecks of other colors and can be gritty due to the high mineral content.
- Himalayan salt– also mined from ancient sea beds, Himalayan salt is pink and is also rich in minerals.
- Celtic sea salt– gray in color, Celtic sea salt is also a good source of minerals.
These are all good options and boast benefits that refined white table salt does not, as white table salt is not only stripped of nutrients and bleached, but sometimes contains additives.
(See the recipe for Brown Butter Blondies with Salted Caramel for a really good excuse to use good salt in the kitchen!)
Sole water supports detoxification
Sole water helps the body to detox unwanted toxins and pathogens, by helping to improve hydration and absorption of nutrients.
Salt is antibacterial and may assist in removing bacteria from the body.
When our body is well hydrated and nourished, the immune system is strengthened, and our bodies are better able to fight off pathogens as well as eliminate toxins.
Sole water= energy
Because of the high mineral content, sole water promotes energizing on a cellular level, nourishing your body from the ground up.
The word “sole” actually translates to “sun” in some languages, which is fitting considering the energizing effects sole water has. This is one major benefit many people notice from drinking sole water.
Each of these benefits is intertwined, and really all go back to the high mineral content.
How sole water can became your secret weapon
If you’re struggling with symptoms of adrenal fatigue, you may want to give sole water a try. These symptoms include:
- abnormal fatigue
- blood sugar roller coaster
- excessive crankiness
- weight gain or loss
- insomnia or other sleep disturbances
- lack of interest in sex
- hair loss
Sole water is a cheap and easy solution and many people notice a difference within a couple of days of drinking sole water!
Energy levels improve. Blood sugar begins to stabilize. Hair stops falling out.
Incorporating sole water into your protocol may just be the missing piece you need for recovery.
How to make sole water
All you need is a cup of salt (see above for suggestions), a quart-sized jar with a plastic lid (like this) and filtered water.
- Put 1 cup of salt in the jar, then fill it the rest of the way with filtered water.
- Cover the jar tightly with a plastic or other non-metal lid and give it a shake.
- Let sit out on the counter overnight. (I leave mine out all the time, as the salt water will not spoil.)
- If the cup of salt is completely dissolved, add a little more until it doesn’t dissolve. This is how you ensure the water is totally saturated.
- Take 1 teaspoon in the morning on an empty stomach (you may need to work your way up to this) in a glass of water.
You can work your way up to a tablespoon in the morning, and can even take another tablespoon once or twice more in the day if you feel the need it. You should always start slowly and work your way up to the dose that feels right.
