5 Benefits of Himalayan Pink Salt
Gorgeous Pink Himalayan Crystal salt contains the full spectrum of 84 minerals and trace elements. Slightly pink in colour, the 84 minerals can be easily assimilated and metabolised by the body.
It is an unrefined, unprocessed raw salt with no added iodine that traditional table salts contain.
This salt has all the natural characteristics of the original crystals from which it comes and has a distinctive alive taste that is naturally delicious. When combined with good quality water the concentrated salty solution can be used for cooking and as an iodized salt substitute. This is called a SOLE
This salt is truly wholesome and delicious! 1000 grams should be enough for at least 12 months.
1. Improves Respiratory Problems
According to the Lung Institute, salt is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, loosens excessive mucus and speeds up mucus clearance, removes pathogens in the air like pollen, and decreases IgE level (immune system oversensitivity). If you Google “Himalayan salt cave,” you see that there are now salt caves made of Himalayan salt all over the country (and world) so people can experience the beneficial health effects, especially when it comes to the respiratory system.
2. Better Sleep Inducer
Research way back in 1989 showed that low-sodium diets can cause disturbed and irregular sleep patterns. The study was small, but the results were very interesting. Subjects on low-sodium diets (around 500 milligrams a day) woke up during the night almost twice as often and got about 10 percent less sleep than those on a normal diet (2,000 milligrams of sodium a day). A high-sodium diet (5,000 milligrams a day) led to even longer sleep than the normal diet with fewer nighttime wakings.
3. Air Purifier
When pink Himalayan salt is used to create a lamp, it just may provide your home or office with cleaner air. One of the main Himalayan salt lamp benefits is its supposed ability clean the air. How? By its inherent nature as a salt, the lamp (which is a block of pure pink Himalayan salt) attracts water vapor to it as well as air pollutants. The water vapor evaporates due the lamp’s heat, but the dust and allergens remain in the salt instead of getting into your body.
4. Balances Body’s pH
Pink Himalayan salt’s rich mineral content can help balance your body’s pH levels. You may think this is no big deal, but when your pH has a healthy acid-to-alkaline ratio, it makes a huge difference in your overall health. A proper pH helps foster your immunity and encourage good digestion. Since pink Himalayan salt contains sodium as well as other electrolytes, it has a direct effect on the pH of your blood.
5. Sole water to flush out toxins
The best way to experience the benefits of Himalayan salt is to make sole water. It is water that is fully saturated with natural salt. Take a jug and fill 1/4th of it with Himalayan salt. Then add water to top it up completely. Seal the jug with a lid and let it sit overnight. By morning, the salt will dissolve in the water and if there is trace of salt left at the bottom of the jar, it indicates that the water has completely absorbed all the salt and is fully saturated. Now, mix 1 teaspoon of this sole water in a regular glass of water and consume every morning.
Drinking this water helps in balancing the pH levels in the body, flushes out toxins, improves your energy and keeps you hydrated at all times. Scientifically speaking, the negatively charged ions in pure salt and the trace minerals enter into the cells and pull toxins from them.
