You have probably heard of the incredible health advantages of the Himalayan salt. However, it’s much more potent than you have imagined. It originates from the Himalayan Mountains in Myanmar, Nepal, India, and China. Its crystalized beds were covered in lava for more than 2 millions of years ago, and that’s how this salt remained clean and fresh from irritants.
Himalayan salt is the purest salt form which provides you with innumerate health properties. Thanks to the extremely important minerals it possess which work in synergy with the sodium, this salt prevents and treats diverse health problems.
Some interesting facts about this salt:
It contains more than 80 important minerals, including strontium, magnesium, bromide, sulfate, potassium, borate, bicarbonate, and fluoride. Therefore, it hydrates the body, strengthens the bones, regulates the electrolyte, accelerates the metabolism, prevents muscle cramps, boosts circulation, cleanses the body from toxins and chemicals, and decelerates the aging.
Moreover, Himalayan salt is rich in iodine, and although it has the same elements as the sea salt, its crystal structure is lower in sodium.
On the other side, table salt is processed and by so doing, it’s stripped of all important minerals. In addition, it’s chemically bleached and exposed to extremely high temperatures that destroy its structure. It is not easily dissolved in the body as it can’t be dissolved in food. Also, the iodine it contains is added in an artificial way.
You can add Himalayan salt to your meals and enjoy the healthy and delicious veggie, meat, or fish. Despite cooking, it can be used for:
Baths – Soak your body in a bath consisting of water and Himalayan salt to optimize the mineral levels in the body, soothe muscle pain, and detoxify the system.
Purifying the air – Himalayan crystal rock lamps are the best way to cleanse the air in a natural way and at the same time, to relieve respiratory issues.
Decoration – Put a container with a little bit of Himalayan salt in the living room to cleanse the air and to decorate the home as well.
