PANSALT® FAQ Series: Who invented PANSALT®? How did PANSALT® come about?

Heikki  Karppanen, MD
PANSALT® is a quality innovation in health foods spearheaded by Heikki Karppanen, M.D., a Professor at the University of Helsinki, Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology in Finland. 

Dr. Karppanen became involved in the study of salt and its harmful effects after he learned about the high incidence of heart attacks leading to deaths among families in North Karelia, Finland where they lived. He later discovered that it was the high Sodium and low mineral content in the soil in their area affecting their food chain that brought about these heart problems and deaths. 

This inspired Dr. Karppanen towards the invention of PANSALT®. Together with Dr. Mildred Seelig, a Magnesium expert from the American College of Nutrition, studies towards the development of PANSALT® were completed. The collaboration of the two experts may be found in the Journal of the College.
