Why is himalayan salt pink?

You’ve probably heard about Himalayan Pink Salt, whether you’ve actually tried it or not. Himalayan Salt actually contains the very same 84 trace minerals and elements you find in the human body, instead of introducing a ton of foreign chemicals to your system. It gets its pink colour from the iron oxide that is present in the salt. When you eat Himalayan pink salt, you are taking in less sodium per serving than you would by eating regular table salt, since Himalayan salt is all natural and less refined, as well as having larger pieces. The minerals in the salt are also small enough for our cells to easily absorb, meaning we get more nutrients out of the salt than we would other kinds.

So why are we so excited about our Himalayan Pink Salt? Well, about 200 million years ago, there were a bunch of crystallized sea salt beds that ended up being covered by lava. Since the salt itself was untouched, being protected and covered by snow and ice for a millennium, it was kept safe from the pollution we know today. This means it is one of the purest salts you could find, untouched by the impurities the world has gone through in the past while.

So What Benefits Do You Get from Eating Himalayan Pink Salt?

Here are just some of the benefits you’d see by switching your regular table salt out in favor of Himalayan salt:

  • Vascular health is aided.
  • Healthy lungs and respiratory functions are supported.
  • This salt promotes a more stable pH balance in your cells.
  • The signs of aging are reduced.
  • Healthy sleep patterns are promoted.
  • Libido is increased.
  • Muscle cramps are lessened and prevented.
  • Hydration is increased because you have lessened sodium intake.
  • Bones are strengthened.
  • Blood pressure is lowered.
  • Circulation is improved.
  • The heavy metals in the body are gotten rid of.

Himalayan Pink Salt Compared to Other Salts

Sea Salt: Since the sea is becoming increasingly filled with pollution each year, sea salt is becoming more and more processed. 

Table Salt: Table salt is pretty much completely stripped of any minerals it has, except for sodium and chloride. Then, it is bleached, chemically cleaned, and heated, with synthetic iodine added to it (which is extremely difficult for our bodies to properly absorb). Then, it has anti-caking agents which keeps it from dissolving in water and clumping in the container, but also prevents the salt from being absorbed into our bodies, which creates buildup.

You can easily see why we are so excited for you to try our Himalayan Pink Salt and receive all the health benefits it has to offer you, especially over other kinds of salt which are not beneficial to your body.
