I had happened upon an article online, as you do when you are searching for something totally unrelated, and it was all about the amazing health benefits of Himalayan Salt. From then onwards I was on a mission to find this wonderful Himalayan Salt. Little did I know it would take me almost two years to locate a supplier of the finest quality Himalayan Salt. It is important to realise that there are different qualities of Himalayan Salt and the salt you need to be looking for is pale in colour (from clear through shades of pink, apricot and orange) but most importantly the salt should be vibrant and energetic, not dull and lifeless.
I realised after drinking sole (Himalayan Crystal Salt Rocks in mineral water - see section on Health Information) for a few short months that the search had been worthwhile.
It was then that I decided that I would like to make this amazing pink salt easier for other people to access, as it had been so difficult to source.
Myself and my partner embarked upon intensive research into all the different salts available on the market. We knew, like everyone else, that common salt was harmful and wanted to know why.
Below is a very short synopsis of our findings:
Himalayan salt is a full-spectrum salt. Instead of just getting sodium and chloride, you're getting a full spectrum of trace minerals as well. Table salt is just sodium chloride. You don't get the trace minerals in table salt, and it is those trace minerals – those other 80+ elements that you need in order to be a healthy, vibrant human being.
Sea salt - Subjected to pollution, sea salt has irregular and isolated crystalline structures disconnected from the natural elements surrounding them. Thus, however many vital minerals it may contain, they cannot be absorbed by your body unless the body expends considerable energy to do so.
Common table salt at best is useless, and at worst a destructive toxin that can lead to heart disease, high blood pressure and fluid retention. (This is why doctors tell us to use less salt in our diets). It has been stripped of its trace minerals, leaving sodium and chloride, and has been further treated by adding an anti-caking agent, to make it free-flowing. Therefore it builds up in the body and leaves deposits in organs and tissue, causing health problems. Please find more culinary and gorumet sat at our sister site Gourmet Salt www.gourmetsalt.co.uk
We need salt - It is essential for maintaining healthy functioning of the cells, nerve conduction, digestion, absorption and elimination of waste products. Whereas common table salt can be detrimental to our health, natural crystal salt is reported to have healing properties.
