What is Himalayan Pink Salt?
Himalayan Pink Salt is fossilized sea salt that contains 84 minerals and trace elements such as copper, potassium, magnesium, calcium and iron as well as many others essential to good health. It is an unrefined, unprocessed "raw" salt that is hand-mined from abundant salt caves that were formed 250 million years ago as ocean salt settled in certain geologic pockets around the earth. The pink color of the salt is from the iron content within the salt. The tiny mineral particles in the Himalayan salt are metabolized easily in the body to help cells function properly.
Highly refined table salt is devoid of nutrients. In the early 20th century, doctors noticed patients with chronic degenerative diseases such as goiter, an enlargement of the thyroid gland due to insufficient iodine in the body. Adding the iodine back to table salt reduced the number of goiter cases but further medical investigations were never conducted to find what other health problems may have been caused by the lack of minerals in the average diet.
Himalayan Pink Salt helps to eliminate toxins from the body, improve circulation, balance the body's pH level, support the functions of the nervous system and promote healthy, relaxed muscles. Soaking in a Himalayan salt bath for 20 minutes per day keeps your skin well-hydrated, promotes circulation, reduces inflammation, and detoxifies skin.
Doctors and health experts advise people to lower their salt intake - even the most natural salt on earth can be bad for you if consumed excessively. Standard table salt, rock salt and sea salt are refined meaning all the minerals have been removed leaving just sodium chloride. Sodium chloride needs the other trace minerals in the correct amounts for it to function correctly in your body.
