The Himalayan Mountains stretch across Asia into China, Nepal, Myanmar, Pakistan, Bhutan, Afghanistan and India. The salt from these mountains are thought to be the purest in the world due to the fact that, more than 200 million years ago crystalized sea beds were covered by lava and then later by snow and ice for a millennia, preserved and protected from pollution.
Himalayan Salt contains 84 different minerals: iron, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, potassium and chloride to name a few; all of these are necessary for healthy bodily function. Some of the benefits include:
- Acids in vascular health
- Supports healthy lungs and respiratory functions
- Promote a stable ph balance within the cells
- Reduces the signs of aging
- Promote healthy sleep patterns
- Increased libido
- Prevents muscle cramping
- Increased hydration
- Strengthens bones
- Lower blood pressure
- Improved circulation
- Detoxifies the body
Table salt is stripped of all of its minerals, with the exception of sodium and chloride. Then it's bleached and cleaned with chemicals and heated to extreme high temperatures. A synthetic iodine is added and lastly it's treated with anti-caking agents. These agents keep the salt from dissolving or clumping together, but they also prevent the salt from being absorbed by our bodies. Eventually this unabsorbed salt will deposit in the body's organs leading to more serious health problems.
A Great Morning Elixir
Right after you wake up: brush your teeth and tongue thoroughly, squeeze one lemon and/or lime into a mug, add one tsp of Pink Himalayan Salt and warm water; it will jump start the body's detoxification process and aid in hydration throughout the day. Drink Up!
**If you are new to this morning elixir, please start with a much smaller amount of salt and work your way up to a tsp**
