Salt is essential for life, you cannot live without it. However, most people simply do not realize the huge difference between refined table salt and other salts such as pink Himalayan salt. These differences can have a great impact on health.
If you want your body to function properly, you need holistic salt complete with natural elements. Common table salt is very different from natural salt.
Common salt or refined table is bleached with chemicals. Table salt is composed of 97.5% sodium chloride and 2.5% chemicals such as moisture absorbents and iodine. Dried at over 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit, this excessive heat alters the natural chemical structure of the salt.
Through the use of advertising, the salt industry has made us believe that there are actually health advantages to adding potentially toxic iodine and fluoride to salt. In addition, table salt often contains potentially dangerous preservatives. Calcium carbonate, magnesium carbonate and aluminium hydroxide are often added to improve the flowability of the salt.
Pink Himalayan Salt is 250 million years old
This is by far the purest salt available on earth and is absolutely free of toxins or pollutants.
Himalayan salt is known as Himalayan Crystal Salt, Himalayan Sea Salt or Pink Sea Salt. The properties of natural Himalayan salt contain the 84 elements found in your body:
Regulates the water content throughout the body
Promotes healthy pH balance in our cells, particularly neurons
Regulates blood sugar and helps reduce the signs of ageing
Power generation for the cells of your body
Aids in the absorption of food through the intestinal tract
Prevention of muscle cramps
Greater bone strength
Naturally promotes sleep
Supports your libido
Positive effects on vascular health
May also help in regulating blood pressure
With the increasing pollution of the oceans, most of today’s sea salt is not as pure as it used to be. Pink Himalayan salt is pure when it is extracted from deep in the earth and it is washed by hand with virtually zero environmental pollutants. It is one of the healthiest natural salts around.
