Salt. We all know that too much of it can be bad for you, but did you know that the right amount of salt vital for your body to function effectively?

Salt contains sodium, an important nutrient that your body cannot produce itself, which it needs to relax muscles, maintain fluid balance, prevent dehydration, send nervous system impulses and prevent low blood pressure. However, not all salts are created equally, and many common table salts are bleached and riddled with a concoction of additives, such as sodium aluminosilicate and magnesium carbonate, which prevent clumping.

Pink Himalayan salt is different

Because it is unrefined and unprocessed, it is free of nasty additives and toxins, meaning that it contains just what your body needs. Not only that, but it also tastes better, as it is naturally more salty than average salt.

It is found in the Punjab region of Pakistan, one of the richest salt fields in the world, and is mined from salt mines 5,000 feet below the Himalayan mountain range. As a result, the salt crystals have experienced tremendous pressure, making them almost 100% pure. The pink and red colour variations indicate the salt’s rich mineral content, as alongside sodium, Pink Himalayan salt contains a huge range of minerals; eighty-four to be exact, including calcium, iron, iodine, boron and potassium.

These minerals help to balance your body’s pH levels, which makes a huge difference to your health, enabling you to digest food efficiently and maintain a good immune system. They are also said to be a natural sleep aid, as the right amount of sodium and minerals in your diet is key to getting a good night’s rest. Furthermore, respiratory problems are improved by Pink Himalayan salt, as it is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and capable of removing pathogens in the air, such as pollen. Consequently, special Himalayan salt caves and lamps have now been built so that people can experience its air purifying health benefits all over the world.
