The Amazing Benefit of Himalayan Salt

 

A couple of hundreds of millions of years ago, crystallized sea salt beds, now deep within the Himalayans, were covered by lava. Aside from being kept it in a pristine environment that has been surrounded by snow and ice year round, the lava is thought to have protected the salt from modern-day pollution leading to the belief that Himalayan Pink salt is the purest salt to be found on earth. It is now hand-mined from the mountains and brought to the culinary market.

 

HIGHLY ABSORBED MINERAL CONTENT

  • Iron - The many hues of pink, red and white are an indication of this salt’s rich and varying mineral and energy-rich iron content.

  • Iodine – Natural salts are rich in iodine, so it doesn’t need to be artificially added in.

  • Less sodium consumed per serving – Himalayan salt is made of the same components as table salt but since the crystal structure is larger than refined salt, and by volume- this salt therefore has LESS sodium per 1/4 teasp serving- because the sea salt crystals or flakes take up less room on a teaspoon than highly refined tiny table salt grains.

  • 80+ minerals and elements – Himalayan salts are mineral packed crystals which formed naturally within the earth made up of minerals including: sulphate, magnesium, calcium, potassium, bicarbonate, bromide, borate, strontium, and fluoride (in descending order of quantity).
