Many Uses of Himalayan Salt
Let’s talk facts! Many of you are still unclear why Himalayan Salt is better than other salts and what are the many uses of it for health benefits?
The Himalayan mountain range stretches across Asia passing through China, Nepal, Myanmar, Pakistan, Bhutan, Afghanistan, and India. Most people associate the Himalayans with Mount Everest, the highest peak on this planet, but here is something new to think about salt.
A couple of hundreds of millions of years ago crystallized sea salt, now deep within the Himalayans, were covered by lava, snow and ice, that kept it a pristine environment and protected the salt from modern-day pollution. Thus, 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.
Himalayan salt was formed naturally from hearty 80+ minerals and elements –85.62% sodium chloride and 14.38% other trace minerals including: sulphate, magnesium, calcium, potassium, bicarbonate, bromide, borate, strontium, and fluoride (in descending order of quantity).
Because of these minerals Himalayan pink salt can:
- Create an electrolyte balance (ideal for HOCL solutions)
- Increases hydration
- Regulate water content both inside and outside of cells
- Balance pH (alkaline/acidity) and help to reduce acid reflux
- Prevent muscle cramping
- Aid in proper metabolism functioning
- Strengthen bones
- Lower blood pressure
- Help the intestines absorb nutrients
- Prevent goiters
- Improve circulation
- Dissolve and eliminate sediment to remove toxins
It is even said to support libido, reduce the signs of aging, and detoxify the body from heavy metals.
