From SeaAgri.com – All mined salt on earth was at one time seawater. SEA-90 Essential Elements is technically sea salt or “sea solids” as named by Maynard Murray, MD contains the full spectrum of periodic table minerals and trace elements in the exact proportions as sea water. SeaAgri accomplishes this by totally solar dehydrating sea water in a desert estuary receiving less than one-half inch of rainfall annually thereby providing the complete spectrum of minerals and trace elements found in sea water.
The term “Sea salt” is used today to describe many different salt products which are inferior to SEA-90 Essential Elements. For example, one popular mineral salt for livestock is mined from the earth in Utah. This ancient salt evolved millions of years ago from trapped ocean water after the seas which covered the area receded. Although the company mining this salt calls it “sea salt”, we refer to this type of salt as “earth salt” since fewer minerals and trace elements are present and those elements are not in the quantities or proportions found in fresh sea water. Earth salts have been subjected to geologic pressure and moisture which leach away elements and concentrated others. Earth salts are typically red or pink in color indicating high levels of Iron. Charles Walters, ACRES USA, explained that feeding this type of salt could cause animal health issues for livestock producers with high iron in their soil/forage or water. Feeding red mineral salts to livestock foraging on hay or drinking water with a high iron content will cause iron toxicities blocking the uptake of other important minerals and trace elements. He believed that Bovine Tuberculosis in Michigan may have been misdiagnosed having actually been an iron toxicity.
In addition many livestock producers offer inexpensive white salt created from either sea water or mined from the earth. Typically white in color, this salt contains 97-99% NaCl and only one to three percent other minerals and trace elements. Livestock also ingest greater quantities of both the white and red colored salts than SEA-90 Essential Elements because they are less water soluble and lower in minerals and trace elements. SeaAgri believes high quality sea mineral salt or solids must be created from fresh seawater on an annual basis. To be called SEA-90 Essential Elements or sea mineral solids, as defined by Dr. Murray, sea salt must never be touched by rain or leached of any of its elements and in its natural state beige in color. SEA-90 Essential Elements or sea mineral solids must never contain more than 82-85% sodium chloride (NaCl) with the remaining 15-17% being minerals and trace elements. SEA-90 Essential Elements is perfect livestock mineral.
