Salt is essential for life. Yet, most all commercially available table and cooking salts have been “chemically cleaned” and reduced to sodium chloride – an unnatural chemical. To help your body function properly you need a salt that is complete with all-natural elements. We have found the purest salt available on earth, free of contaminants. Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt is the one and only we should be consuming.
Benefits Backed by science:
Himalayan salt’s rich mineral content can help your body detoxify.
Himalayan salt contains more than 80 minerals and elements, including potassium, iron and calcium. All of these minerals aid our body’s natural detoxification process and promote the removal of bacteria.
It contains less sodium than processed table salt and lowers blood pressure.
Table salt is highly processed and contains fewer minerals and more sodium than Himalayan salt does. When you swap table salt for Himalayan salt, your body has an easier time processing it because it doesn’t require as much water to clear out the excess sodium as it would have if you had consumed table salt.
To boot, Himalayan salt is naturally rich in iodine, which food companies add artificially to table salt after processing it. The natural iodine in Himalayan salt is very effective at helping your body create an electrolyte balance, helping your intestines absorb nutrients and lowering blood pressure.
Contrary to what most people believe, Himalayan salt can aid hydration.
Want a great post-workout hack? Drink some sea salt and lemon water.
The average adult body is approximately 65 percent water. If we don’t drink the proper amount of water each day (as most of us don’t), our bodies feel it. If the body’s water content drops by as little as 2 percent, we will feel fatigued.
How can sea salt and lemon water help? The same way popular sports drinks do. Essentially, when we sweat or workout, we lose minerals, or electrolytes. Drinking water with a pinch of mineral-rich Himalayan salt after a workout can help you regain them and, in turn, your energy and hydration.
It improves digestion
Himalayan salt’s rich mineral content helps balance your body’s pH levels. When our pH levels are balanced, our bodies have better immunity and are better able to process and digest food.
A recipe for a great night’s sleep
Do you tend to wake up at 3 a.m.? There’s a reason why this is one of the most common times of night for people to wake up and struggle with sleep, and it has to do with your salt intake.
Between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m. biochemical reactions that occur due to a high level of stress hormones that flush through our system cause sleep disturbances and interrupt our ability to stay asleep. Studies show that low-sodium diets cause blood volume to decrease in the sympathetic nervous system, which in turn, activates adrenaline and the “fight or flight” response.
For a great night’s sleep, mix some raw honey with a pinch of Himalayan salt and eat it or put it in a cup of tea.
