I was walking through the gourmet grocery aisle the other day, and I saw something that caught my eye. What was this pink salt that looked so good? Well, it was nothing other than Himalayan Rock Salt. I had never heard of such a thing. I thought it looked pretty cool, so I decided to buy some as it wasn’t too expensive. When I got home I decided to do a little research on my little pink friend, and I was amazed as to the health benefits.
First, to understand the benefits of Himalayan salt, you must know that our bodies are 90% water and 10% minerals. As a matter of fact, the mineral portion of our bodies contains 92 different minerals. Himalayan Pink Salt contains a whopping 84 of these minerals. It is well-known that our bodies need salt in order to function. Most “white” salt that you will find has been highly processed and stripped of any nutritional value. Himalayan Pink Salt is natural and harvested by hand in the Himalayan Mountains.
This salt is considered to be the King of Salts. The locals in the foothills of the Himalayas are practically begging to work in these salt mines because of the health benefits and healing properties from breathing in the minerals. There are long waiting lists to work in the mines.
Many references throughout history have been concerting Salt and Life. Who has ever heard of the saying, “Human Beings are the Salt of Life”??? Why not give it a try and see if it improves your health!
