By David Higgins

Seasalt produced at various regions of Okinawa are sought-after commodity.

Okinawan Salt is far more than just a highly regarded condiment for food. It is something that is strongly tied to Okinawan people and culture.  It’s not only something that represents good health, but it is said that by incorporating it into everyday life, this very special salt is truly the secret source to a long life.

The Sea of Okinawa is a truly wonderful body of water. It’s very rich in minerals that make it a great place to gather resources, and one of them is Okinawan salt.  Okinawan salt is not only rich in all natural minerals, but it also has a rich taste.  It has won a gold medal in an international food contest, and is also listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for this fact.

Okinawan Salt has been proven to be the best of all salts produced in Japan, and because of this it has managed to gain the full attention of the whole world. It is 100% natural as it comes straight from the Sea of Okinawa; therefore, it is free of any toxic elements or radiation.

It also contains the highest number of natural quality minerals that other forms of salt don’t have in abundance. Some of these natural quality minerals are nutrients that we all need for everyday life and good health. These minerals include calcium, potassium, zinc, silicon, and magnesium, to name only a few.   Yet another benefit of Okinawan salt is that it’s taste is one of the most highly regarded among all ocean salts. It is a unique salt due to its very unique and natural production process.

Okinawa, Japan is known internationally for being the land of longevity, and one can understand why, with just the presence of Okinawan salt alone. It’s a mineral that is made by nature, and comes from the Sea of Okinawa, a body of water that is one of the cleanest and clearest of all blue ocean waters in the entire world. Therefore, Okinawan salt is truly a gift from this amazing sea, and this gift is blessed with the secret to long life that results in the longest living humans on earth residing in this great exotic locale.

    I just read an article that says Okinawa is a contaminated dump site. ( http://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2013/08/07/national/okinawa-dump-site-may-be-proof-of-agent-orange-experts/#.U86ADbGKTkA ) This says the opposite. Which is true?

      I doubt you’ll care at this point, found this article via a search, but Okinawa has the highest longevity rating in the world.They did find some Agent Orange in containers on a former US Military base, but the island itself is absolutely beautiful and quite clean, very low air pollution, clean ground water. Now something I will say is that this article exaggerates or says a few false things. All sea water is slightly radioactive and naturally contains some degree of heavy metals and other toxins, this is true of all sea water, and salt is never the “secret of longevity”, the “secret” is a natural diet that is LOW in salt, heavy on fish & vegetables, low amounts of artificial food & soda consumption, coupled with lower amounts of stress, active lifestyles, excellent healthcare, and low rates of alcohol, tobacco, or drug abuse.

        Nicholas, I grew up on Okinawa. You don’t have to school me on it’s history or it’s treasures. I don’t think you understood my question.
