Himalayan pink salt is often said to be the most beneficial as well as the cleanest salt available on this planet today. With a history dating back to Earth’s creation, Himalayan pink salt is
believed to be composed of dried remnants of the original, primordial sea. It has all kinds of nutritional and therapeutic properties, not to mention culinary uses. You can use it as a healthier option to processed salt. You can also use it to create homemade body scrubs and bath soaks. Our pink salt comes from the Punjab and is ground medium fine. 3 oz jar.
Refined table salt is harmful to our bodies as it has
been stripped of natural trace minerals and electrolytes, and added
with synthetic additives such as iodine. Table salt is composed of 97% sodium chloride, is chemically produced,
and it’s bleached. It also happens to contain aluminum more often than
not which has been linked to Alzheimers disease.Substituting your regular refined table salt with the all-natural Himalayan pink salt for cooking is one of the easiest ways that you can start enjoying the
appealing visual impact, taste and health benefits of the our salt.
A Salt Sole a Day
Himalayan Pink Salt is used to make Salt Sole (pronounced Solay), essentially water that has been fully
saturated with a natural salt. This isn’t just a small amount of salt
dissolved in water, but rather water that has absorbed as much natural
salt as it is able and will not absorb any more. When the Himalayan salt is dissolved in water, the crystal salt and
associated minerals hydrolyses into ions form (or electrolytes),
unleashing the stored energy in the ionic salt crystals. Along with the
84 trace minerals and elements in the Himalayan salt sole, this stored
energy results in great benefits to our bodies as it nourishes every
cell of our body.
Benefits of Himalayan salt sole include:
