Why is pink best? The many hues of pink and red are an indication of this salt’s rich and varying mineral and energy-rich iron content. Unlike the refined white version that we find in most of our pantries, Himalayan Rock Salt helps to:
- Regulate the water content within the body
- Balance excess acidity from your cells, particularly brain cells
- Regulate your sleep
- Clear congestion in your sinuses
- Prevents muscle cramps
- Clear mucus and phlegm from your lungs
- Maintain your libido
- Prevent varicose veins and spider veins on your legs
- Stabilise irregular heartbeats
So how does the white differ to the pink? Commercial refined salt is not only stripped of all its minerals, it is also chemically cleaned, bleached and heated, and this only leaves sodium and chloride behind. In addition, white salt can be treated with anti-caking agents, which prevents the salt sticking together when it comes in contact with water. This doesn’t seem like a problem but when it enters our system is actually prevents the salt from dissolving, which can lead to a build up in organs and tissues causing severe health problems later on in life. So, the pink isn’t just pretty, its pink hue is a sign of high quality, untouched nutrients.
Himalayan Rock Salt isn't just for seasoning; it can also be bathed in to help relax muscles, used as mouthwash/toothpaste to help fight again plaque and decay and it can most importantly be used as a natural electrolyte. It is pack full of trace elements such as sulphate, magnesium, calcium, potassium and bicarbonate.
