The Himalayan mountain range can be found across Asia, passing through India, China, Nepal, Pakistan, Myanmar, Bhutan and Afghanistan. Mount Everest is also located in the Himalayan Mountains range and is the highest peak on the planet. Something else that is contained in this beautiful mountain range is Himalayan salt. These sea salt beds were once covered with lava, hundreds of millions of years ago, protecting the lava from pollution. It is some of the purest sales that can be found in the world and it is hand-mined and sold to the world. The salt is pink because it is energy-rich, loaded with minerals and iron. The benefits are incredible and many people are just now discovering this natural salt that is charged with intensity and minerals.
Synergy – An Amazing Health Benefit
Pink Himalayan salt works in a synergy that is an interaction of multiple elements contained in a system that produces an effect different from others. This salt is loaded with iodine, has less sodium per serving and has larger crystals than refined salt. Himalayan sea salt has more than 80 minerals and elements formed naturally in the earth. This salt contains 85.62% sodium chloride and 14.38% trace minerals including calcium, sulphate, potassium, magnesium, borate, bromide, strontium and fluoride.
Himalayan salt can:
- Improve bone structure;
- Decrease blood pressure;
- Relieve muscle cramps;
- Boost metabolism;
- Balance electrolytes;
- Balance water content inside and outside cells;
- Stimulate absorption of nutrients
- Prevent goiters
- Balance pH values and hydrate the body
- Reduce acid reflux
- Stimulate circulation
- Dissolve and eliminate toxins
It is also believed by health experts that Himalayan salt can prevent premature aging, increase libido and reduce heavy metals in the body. This sea salt is the purest kind of sea salt available in the world. Table salt is inferior because all of the minerals that the body needs are stripped from it. Table salt is also bleached, cleaned and exposed to high temperatures. Table salt contains anti-caking agents that prevent it from clumping if it is exposed to moisture in a salt container, which can also prevent it from dissolving in the body. The fact that the salt cannot dissolve causes it to build up in tissues and in organs that can lead to serious health conditions. Synthetic iodine that is added to table salt prevents the body from processing it correctly.
When you eat the right kind of salt, it can lower your blood pressure and stimulate better circulation. As salt is absorbed into your bloodstream in a more efficient manner, you are getting a better benefit from it. If you mix the salt with hot water to dissolve it, it can help to clear up sinus issues and can also contribute to improve any respiratory conditions that you may have. The negative ions contained in the pink crystals attack sinus issues with full force.
A Himalayan salt bath can serve to relax, rejuvenate and detox you. The salt water has an electrical charge and the dissolved minerals. The bath can draw out your toxins and cleanse your skin. It helps to clean the body and provide it with energy. If you want to try a Himalayan salt brine bath, add between 1 – 2 pounds of Himalayan salt into a warm bath. A salt bath is an intense detox system, and the water does not need to be very hot. You should only soak in this intense salt bath for between 15 and 20 minutes. At the end of the “brining” process, your muscles are going to feel relaxed to the point of feeling weak. If you feel that you need less intense salt bath, just use between 1 and 2 cups of salt in warm water.
