    I have heard that drinking cherry juice will aid in the treatment of Chronic Kidney desease. CKD.
    Has anyone heard of this?

    I’ve been told sea salt is lower in potasium. Is that correct?

    No, not according to my nutrient analysis data. Six grams (1 teaspoon) of gray sea salt contains 15.6 mg potassium and 1920 mg sodium. In comparison, 6 grams of table salt contains less than 1 mg potassium but sodium is higher at 2325 mg.

    I am not familiar with any research related to cherry juice however cherries are high in antioxidants and have been shown to reduce inflammation when eaten daily. There may be a benefit for kidney patients who have inflammation. Here’s an article you may be interested in reading.
