Have you heard of Himalayan salt- the purest salt found on the planet?
This salt is hand-mined from the Himalayan mountains, that stretch
across Asia, passing through Nepal, China, Myanmar, Pakistan,
Afghanistan, Bhutan, and India.
Millions of years ago, the crystallized sea salt beds were covered with
lava, and surrounded by snow and ice throughout the entire year,
protecting it from any kind of pollution. Moreover, its richness in
minerals and iron provide its hues of pink, red, and white.
It contains the same compounds as table salt, but its crystal structure
makes it lower in sodium per serving.
Its crystals are naturally formed within the earth, and consist of
85.62% sodium chloride and 14.38% of about 80 trace minerals such a
potassium, strontium, calcium, sulfate, magnesium, bromide, borate,
bicarbonate, and fluoride.
Its high mineral content makes it a real natural miracle, that treats
and prevents various health issues. Here are some of its health
- Boosts circulation
- Strengthens the bones
- Prevents muscle cramps
- Treats acid reflux
- Detoxifies the body from metals
- Improves libido
- Stimulates metabolism
- Regulates the pH balance of the system
- Dissolves and eliminates sediment to remove toxins
- Improves body hydration
- Reduces premature aging
- Lowers blood pressure
- Creates an electrolyte balance
- Prevents goiters
- Regulates water content both, inside and outside of cells
- Helps the absorption of nutrients in the digestive system
This salt can be used in numerous ways, as explained by Dr.Mercola:
“Himalayan salt is often utilized in the same way as table salt; it’s
used for cooking, seasoning and preserving food. What’s unique about
Himalayan salt, however, is its availability as salt blocks that may be
used as serving dishes, cooking surfaces and cutting boards.
Apart from using Himalayan salt for culinary purposes, it can also be
substituted for bath salts and added to relaxing salt and mineral baths
that allow the skin to soak up minerals from the water. Plus, it can
also be made into eye-catching Himalayan salt lamps and candle holders
for your rooms.”
