Himalayan Sea Salt
Are you still using table salt? If so, here’s why you should start using Himalayan Sea salt today! Himalayan salt dates back billions of years, basically to the very beginning of planet Earth, which I find fascinating.
It comes from the Punjab region of Pakistan, which is around 190 miles from the Himalayan Mountains. It is believed that the salt is composed of dried remnants of the original, primal sea. It can be pink, red, or white in color. The salt comes from mines 5,000 feet deep below the Himalayan Mountain Range, and it is said that it is 99 percent pure. It is even mined by hand. Now that is dedication!
There are several reasons why Himalayan salt is preferred over table salt. One is that table salt involves a great deal of unnatural interference. It is very highly processed, which means it is devoid of almost all minerals. Many commercial salts also undergo a bleaching process and contain aluminum derivatives and other harmful ingredients. YUCK!
Another really important reason to switch is the health benefits. The salt is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, it’s been said to loosen excessive mucus, speed up mucus clearance and decreases your overall immune system oversensitivity. It also helps to balance your body’s pH level. This is due to the rich mineral content (over 84 minerals including calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper and iron). A healthy pH level helps to boost your immunity and encourages good digestion. It also can encourage better sleep.
Believe it or not, but eating enough salt in your diet daily is one of the key’s to a good night’s sleep. Other health benefits include strengthening bones, preventing muscle cramps, improving circulation, and detoxing the body of heavy metals. Using Himalayan salt in your food is just one way to incorporate it into your everyday life. Other ways include:
- Salt lamps- these lamps have the ability to chemically and physically transform a room
- Halotherapy- this is the inhalation of micronized dry salt within a chamber that can be compared to a salt cave
- Homemade body scrubs- powerful detoxifier with numerous minerals
