Cravings mean that the body is missing something. It’s normally caused by a lack of nutrients in the body.
If you’re craving something salty – it may mean you need more zinc in your diet. Zinc not only makes taste buds work more efficiently, It prompts the growth of new taste buds.
Zinc is abundant in whole grains, pumpkin seeds, Brazil nuts, pastured eggs, and seafood. Zinc is needed for insulin and glucose utilization, and a deficiency can also lead to sugar cravings.
