Salt has been used as a natural flavoring for thousands of years and it’s so vital to our existence that we’ve even been created with a portion of our tongue designated to taste saltiness.
The Himalayas – the tallest mountains in the world – span 2400 kilometers across Asia at the joining of the Indian and Eurasian tectonic plates. Where these proud peaks now stand, 250 million years ago was a primordial sea. Within that ancient body of water existed a perfect, pristine ecosystem. As the plates of the earth moved and over the ages pushed the Himalayas toward the heavens, the sea evaporated and all of its life-sustaining minerals crystallized under the heat of the sun to form what we now know as Himalayan pink salt.
Himalayan crystal salt is far superior to traditional iodized salt. Himalayan salt is millions of years old and pure, untouched by many of the toxins and pollutants that pervade other forms of ocean salt.
Himalayan Salt contains the same 84 trace minerals and elements that are found in the human body; that alone is quite impressive! A few of these minerals include: sodium chloride, sulphate, calcium, potassium, and magnesium. When consuming this salt, you are actually getting less sodium intake per serving than regular table salt because it is less refined and the pieces are larger. Therefore Himalayan salt has less sodium per serving because the crystals or flakes take up less room than the highly processed table salt variety.
Another great thing about this salt is that, because of its unique cellular structure, it stores vibrational energy. The minerals in this salt exist in colloidal form, which means that they are small enough for our cells to easily absorb.

Why the pink salt is so much better than the regular, refined salt?
The regular salt is robbed out of all these elements and minerals that we have listed above. It only contains sodium and chloride and it also goes through numerous modifications under unnatural conditions. Besides these two elements, the anti-caking agents are part of the structure of the refined salt. These are additives that prevent forming lumps, and they also make it impossible for the salt to dissolve in your body. The salt cannot get out of your system and that causes many life-threatening health problems. In addition, the iodine that the regular salt contains is also synthetic and bad for your health.
Naturally, you can use the pink salt for cooking. You can make salt slabs and put some food on them as decoration like fruits and vegetables, sea food or cheese. If you froze them you can use them for deserts, and if you heat them, they can be used for searing meat, sea food, vegetables and making fried eggs. You can also decorate your food with some pink salt crystals.
Besides that, you can also relax your muscles in a therapeutic Himalayan salt bath. It makes your skin glow and it also has healing effects.
Except for cooking and bathing you can use the crystals as decoration for your home. There are beautiful lamps and other home decorations made from crystal rocks. It also smells good if you use it in an essential oil diffuser.
Air purification — Not only does Himalayan pink salt detoxify the body, you can also use it to clean the air you breathe.You may have seen one before and not known what you were looking at – a big chunky pink crystal lamp sitting on a table or desk. This decorative bit of lighting is actually made of HPS, which acts as a natural air purifier by pulling moisture from the surrounding environment into the salt. Heat from the bulb quickly evaporates the water back into the air, but any toxins that were previously carried in the cycled moisture are left behind, trapped by the salt ions.
Sinus Irrigation – If you’ve ever used a Neti pot then you know how well salt water can work to clear up your sinuses. Try using HPS saline in your pot for an even healthier cleanse. Himalayan pink salt kills bacteria and bonds to many contaminants that may be stuck in your nasal cavities due to breathing polluted air. Alternately, if you don’t like the idea of running water through your nasal cavities, you can also use this Himalayan crystal salt inhaler to cleanse your respiratory system.
Lower Blood Pressure – Because of its high sodium content, saying that Himalayan pink salt has the ability to lower your blood pressure makes a lot of people skeptical. After all, we’ve been told our whole lives that too much salt makes your BP skyrocket, but do a little digging and you will find that there are holes in the research on this topic. That said, when all natural HPS is used in lieu of (but not more than) processed NaCl table salt, your body actually has an easier time processing the minerals. Your system won’t need as much water to clear out the excess sodium, therefore you won’t retain as much water, and your body won’t have to work as hard. Remember that natural is always better than processed and the same holds true for salt. So swap out that old salt shaker for a Himalayan pink salt grinder.
Balance pH / Reduce Acid Reflux – Unbalanced pH is a problem for many people that can lead to all kinds of health problems from immune deficiency and loss of bone density to kidney stones and weight gain.
You can test your body’s pH using test strips. Urine should have a pH around 6.5 with it being lower in the morning and slightly higher in the afternoon. Saliva pH should maintain between 6.5 and 7.5 throughout the day. The majority of people with a pH imbalance lean toward acidity (lower pH number) and can fix this problem fairly easily by drinking sole made with Himalayan pink salt.
As a side note – due to its alkalinity, sole made with HPS can also be used as an antacid. Just mix about one teaspoon in a glass of room temperature water and drink to neutralize excess stomach acid.
Improve Digestion – Nutrients in HPS can actually increase the ability of our gastrointestinal tract to absorb other nutrients. For this reason, trading your shaker of table salt for Himalayan pink will help you to better digest your food. Better digestion means you’ll feel less hungry which – especially for those wanting to shed a couple of extra pounds each week – is very good news, indeed!
Strengthens the Body – Many of the minerals found in HPS are also vital for the human body to maintain strong bones and connective tissues, as well as proper muscle regeneration and blood circulation. If you are prone to chilled extremities, arthritis, broken bones, or even mental fatigue – regular use of Himalayan pink salt to season your food may be just what you need to jump start your body back to good health.
You should be able to find this amazing Himalayan Crystal Salt online or at your local health food store.
