Over these last decades, sea salt became more and more polluted since the oceans have more agricultural and industrial toxins. But, the Himalayan salt is mined of ancient sea areas and beds so it is pure and has no toxins.
This salt is the healthiest salt for use and is all natural. It is pulled of the high mountain range worldwide, Himalayas. Also it is restorative for the health and this was known for thousands of years. In general, this salt has 84 mineral traces and ionic energy too when combined with water.
The best benefits of Himalayan salt:
The hues are white, pink and this is the minerals inside.
1. Low in sodium
This salt has the same items as table salt, BUT the crystal structure it has is better than processed salt and it has less sodium in ¼ tsp.
2. More iodine
All salts have iodine, but this one has more of it and this is vital for the health.
It has 84 health beneficial minerals and elements- this salt has over 84 minerals and calcium, magnesium, iron, potassium, copper and more. This is mineral crystals made all by nature in the earth. Also they have 85.62% sodium chloride and 14.38% traces of potassium, sulphate, magnesium, calcium, bicarbonate, bromide, borate, strontium, fluoride.
These minerals can:
- Keep good electrolyte balance
- Control water out and in cells
- Make better hydration
- Stop muscle cramps
- Lower acid reflux
- Aid intestines get nutrients
- Make metabolism better
- Regulate pressure
- Make bones better and stronger
- Boost blood flow
- Stop goiters
- Dissolve sediments and removes toxins
But there is more – experts think this salt boosts libido too, slows aging and cleanses the body of metals and toxins.
Why pink Himalayan salt is superior to regular sea salt
Sea salt is much better than table salt but is processed more lately, sadly.
But table salt has no minerals except sodium and chloride. Also, it is bleached too, chemical cleansed and heated on high heat. Even more, iodine in this salt is synthetic and we cannot make use of it. It has anti-caking agents as well that stop salt to dissolve in water and clumps the salt shaker. Also such agents cannot make the salt get absorbed well inside us and thus we are at risk of more health issues.
Usage of pink Himalayan salt:
Use the pre-ground salt or grinders for salt
2. Salt bath
Add some salt in the tub water and soak for a good body detox. Also the nutrients here boost the blood flow and remove soreness of muscles. This makes us heal better both mentally and physically.
3. Salt slabs
These are in shape of serving platters. Also those slabs make better mineral content and taste of salt. Heated: used for shrimps, veggies, thin slices beef, fish fillets, fried eggs and more. Frozen: for cold desserts and sorbet. Chilled: for decoration of veggies, fruits, cheese and sushi. And this salt also kills microbes, so quickly scrub this slab.
Use it for crystal décor, containers, sprinkled on meals and dishes and more.
5. Air cleansing
The salt crystals here resolve breathing issues, and clean the air naturally while they promote more health. Use Crystal rock lamps for cleaning air. If you like meat, know that brining makes the meat even better.
