Why not table salt?
Did you know that Commercial refined salt is stripped of all its minerals, besides sodium and chloride, and it is chemically cleaned, bleached and heated? I read that it is treated with anti-caking agents which prevent salt from mixing with water in the salt container. These agents also prevent dissolving within our system leading to build up and then deposit in organs and tissue, causing severe health problems. And that, the iodine that is added into salt is usually synthetic which is difficult for your body to process properly.
Why Pink Salt?
The pink color of the Himalayan Sea Salt is an indication of this salt’s rich and varying mineral and energy-rich iron content. Himalayan salts are crystallized sea salts from the Himalayan mountains which have been covered by lava and kept in a pristine environment surrounded by snow and ice and thought to have been protected from modern-day pollution leading to the belief that Himalayan Pink salt is the purest salt to be found on earth. It is made up of 85.62% sodium chloride and 14.38% other trace minerals including: sulfate, magnesium, calcium, potassium, bicarbonate, bromide, borate, strontium, and fluoride.
Because of these minerals Himalayan pink salt can:
-Create an electrolyte balance
-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
-Lower blood pressure
Help the intestines absorb nutrients
-Dissolve and eliminate sediment to remove toxins
