Why did I replace ordinary salt with Himalayan salt?!
Have you heard about the amazing Himalayan crystal salt that comes directly from the Himalayas? It is packed with some pretty amazing benefits and is a must-have piece to add to your pantry. This is an absolutely wonderful and desirable alternative to table salt, and the many facts I came across explain why..
First of all! What makes Himalayan crystal salt so amazing? More than 200 million years ago, there were crystallized beds of sea salt that were covered with lava. The fact that they have been preserved in this pristine, unspoiled environment that has been surrounded by snow and ice for so many years means that the salt has been protected from the pollutions of modern times. Many people believe that this pink salt from the Himalayas is the purest salt that can be found on the planet!!
- Energy and minerals
Himalayan salt contains the same 84 minerals and elements found in the human body, which is pretty impressive in itself! Some of these minerals are: sodium chloride, sulfate, calcium, potassium and magnesium. It is low in sodium and another thing that makes this salt amazing is its cellular structure that stores vibrational energy. The minerals in this salt exist in colloidal form, which means they are small enough for our cells to absorb easily.
- What exactly are the benefits?
Some of the benefits you can expect from consuming this salt in place of regular – table salt include:
– Support vascular health;
– Support healthy lungs and respiratory function;
– Promote a more stable pH balance in cells;
– Reducing the signs of aging;
– Promoting healthy sleep;
– Increase libido;
– Increases hydration;
– Bone strengthening;
– Lowers blood pressure;
– Improves blood circulation;
– Detoxification of the body from heavy metals.
- Comparison with other salts
- Sea salt
While still a better choice than table salt, sea salt is becoming more and more processed and let’s face it, the oceans are getting more and more polluted every year. Because of the pristine conditions in which it is stored, Himalayan salt proves to be the purest salt available today.
- Cooking white salt
Table salt is completely devoid of most of its minerals, with the exception of sodium and chlorine. Bleached and cleaned with chemicals and then heated at extremely high temperatures. The iodine that is added to table salt is almost always synthetic, which is difficult for our bodies to perceive. This can lead to serious health problems. Studies have shown that for every gram of table salt that is consumed, your body will use 20 times the amount of cell water to neutralize the amount of sodium chloride that is present in this chemically treated salt.
In addition, many of us consume too much processed food. These foods contain astronomical amounts of salt, which is not good for our health!
