Here is one of the reasons… Himalayan salt has less sodium than table salt and it is naturally rich in iodine, so it is not artificially added in. The many hues of pink, red and white are an indication of this salt’s rich and varying mineral and energy-rich iron content.
Himalayan salt is mineral packed crystals which formed naturally within the earth made up of 85.62% sodium chloride and 14.38% other trace minerals including: sulfate, magnesium, calcium, potassium, bicarbonate, bromide, borate, and strontium; and it is further stated that this pink salt packs a hearty 80+ more minerals and elements in their pretty pink package.
You ask…what and how does that benefit me, well here is a list of benefits for replacing the table salt shaker with Himalayan Pink salt:
Create an electrolyte balance
Regulate water content both inside and outside of cells
Balance pH (alkaline/acidity) and help to reduce acid reflux
Prevent muscle cramping
Aid in proper metabolism functioning
Help the intestines absorb nutrients
Dissolve and eliminate sediment to remove toxins
Aiding in vascular health
Supporting healthy lungs and respiratory function
Reducing the signs of aging
Promoting healthy sleep patterns
Lowers blood pressure
Detoxifying the body of heavy metals
And if that isn’t enough to convince you here is why table salt is inferior…
Commercial refined salt is not only stripped of all its minerals, besides sodium and chloride, but is also chemically cleaned, bleached and heated at unnecessary high temperatures.
In addition, it is treated with anti-caking agents which prevent salt from mixing with water in the salt container. These agents also prevent dissolving within our system leading to build up and then deposit in organs and tissue, causing severe health problems.
Studies have shown that for each gram of table salt that is consumed that the body cannot process, your body will use 20 TIMES the amount of cellular water to neutralize the amount of sodium chloride that is present in this chemically treated salt.
Finally, the iodine that is added into salt is usually synthetic which is difficult for your body to process properly. Shockingly under U.S. law, up to 2% of table salt can be additives. This is large in part of how salt has gotten such a bad name. It is not necessarily salt that is unhealthy for us, it is refined table salt that is inferior for our health.
ALSO…Pink salt has other healthy uses such as:
Salt Slabs– used as serving platters, the slabs will impart an enhanced salt taste and mineral content. Chilled: decorate with fruits, sushi, vegetables or cheese. Frozen: present cold desserts and even sorbets. Heated: use the slabs to sear vegetables, shrimp, fish fillets or thinly sliced beef or even to fry an egg. The dense salt blocks conduct heat beautifully with near perfect heat distribution.
Best of all, Himalayan salt is naturally anti-microbial, so clean up requires just a quick scrub or rinse.
Salt Lamps: Keep a salt lamp in each room of your home and it will diminish the electromagnetic toxins in the room, I keep one close to my TV and my desk near my computers
Decoration– use the salts in containers, as décor crystals and sprinkled on food for presentation.
Bathing- throw in the tub for a detoxifying Himalayan salt bath. The replenishing nutrients stimulate circulation and soothe sore muscles.
Naturally rich in 80+ nourishing and skin-replenishing minerals, bathing with pink bath salt is a healing and therapeutic experience for mind and body.
Potpourri Holders and Essential Oil Diffusers, many on-line sites sell beautiful home décor featuring the pink salt as crystal rocks.
Air purification– crystal rock lamps for air purification are also found and sold on-line.
