The Benefits of Himalayan Salt

Himalayan salt, also known as Himalayan crystal salt, is a type of rock salt best known for its striking pink color. This salt is unrefined and hand-mined from salt caves in northern Pakistan. Its pink color comes from the natural presence of several trace minerals, including magnesium and iodine. Many believe that Himalayan crystal salt is a better option than traditional iodized salt. Himalayan salt is millions of years old and untouched by many of the toxins and pollutants that pervade other forms of salt.[1]

Himalayan Crystal Salt: The Health Benefits

Himalayan crystal salt has matured over the past 250 million years under intense tectonic pressure; it’s an environment with zero exposure to toxins and impurities.[1] Rather, this form of salt contains about 80 natural minerals and elements used by the human body.[2]

Himalayan salt is popular in Ayurvedic, Tibetan, and complementary therapeutic traditions. Adherents believe that Himalayan salt’s unique cellular structure allows it to store vibrational energy. Practitioners claim the health benefits of natural Himalayan crystal salt include: [3, 4]

The health benefits of using natural Himalayan Crystal Salt may include:

  • Regulating water levels in the body
  • Promoting stable pH balance in the cells, including the neurons
  • Encouraging healthy blood sugar levels
  • Reducing the common signs of aging
  • Promoting cellular hydroelectric energy balance
  • Increased absorption of minerals within the intestinal tract
  • Aiding vascular health
  • Supporting healthy respiratory function
  • Promoting overall sinus health
  • Reducing cramps
  • Strengthening bones
  • Promoting healthy sleep patterns
  • Encouraging healthy libido
  • Promoting kidney and gallbladder health

Advocates of traditional medicine say that processed table salts are energetically dead, as their crystals are completely isolated from one another. For the body to metabolize chemical table salt, it must waste tremendous amounts of energy to keep the body at optimum fluid balance. This creates a burden on the elimination systems in the body. Water is removed from other cells in an attempt to neutralize the unnatural, processed salts.[4]

The Trouble With Table Salt

The table and cooking salt found in most homes, restaurants, and processed foods is void of nutritional value and lacks beneficial trace minerals.[5] Many people are unaware that common table salt is processed with questionable chemicals[2, 6] and dried at more than 1,200° Fahrenheit—a process that disrupts natural chemical structures.[2] Salt is necessary but can be less than healthy if taken in this form.

The average American consumes 3,400 mg of sodium chloride a day, over 1000 mg more than the recommended limit.[7] The body cannot dispose of it in a natural, healthy way, which can lead to irritation of the tissues, water retention, and high blood pressure.[8]

Many of the traditionally attributed health benefits of Himalayan salt have yet to be scientifically established, but regardless of what salt you choose, it is clear that restricting your sodium intake can have a big impact on your total health and well-being. Fortunately, salt isn’t the only, or even the best, way to get vital trace minerals into your body. For that, I recommend IntraMIN®, an all-natural trace mineral supplement. Exclusively derived from plant sources, IntraMin offers 71 organically-bound trace minerals including magnesium, iodine, fulvic acid, calcium, potassium, and iron.

Choosing to use Himalayan salt as an alternative can have a big impact on your total health and well-being.

    Türöffner in der Not Sehr guter Service. Weiter so. Hat alles so preislich gestimmt wie am Telefon abgemacht. Ein anderer warb mit 9 Euro für Türöffnung. Es war offensichtlich daß das ein Lockvogelpreis ist. Im Impressum stand auch Herford, das ist doch sehr weit. Dann stießen wir auf diesen Anbieter. Herr schien uns seriös und nett also bestellten wir diesen. Wir wurden nicht enttäuscht. Eine absolute Empfhelung sind Sie. Danke für Ihre Bewertung. Freut uns zu hören, wie Sie es empfanden.
