Salt has many uses, from seasoning your food to maintaining your house. We all know that salt can be great for adding flavor, but it can also impact your health if used in excess. However, if used correctly and in moderation there can be some incredible benefits also.


There are many types of salt, from table salt to sea salt, and each type will have different qualities. This is largely due to the quality or the purity of the salt itself. The salt we use for basic seasoning can be processed, and that isn’t good for us, but if we use sea salt, we get a higher quality product. You can also get more benefits from the nutrients found in salt itself.

The important thing to realize is that the organic form will offer the best benefits when it comes to your health and this is where Himalayan crystal salt comes into the picture.


What is Himalayan Salt?

Himalayan salt is easy to identify because of its color — it is a beautiful pink color. The salt comes from the famous mountain range, the Himalayans, and was formed over millions of years. It is a pure salt and was born from the ancient glaciers that were also responsible for the creation of the mountain range itself. This type of salt is sometimes referred to as the “virgin” salt of the earth and is near 100 percent purity. The purity of Himalayan salt is important because this is what sets it apart from other organic salts that you may use for your health.

The purity of Himalayan salt is what truly makes it unique and is why the salt is so popular. It was born from the sea and contains the nutrients found in seawater. The benefit also comes from the crystal itself, it is self-contained and protected from other elements which adds to its purity. The nutrients found within Himalayan salt are also parallel to those in your own body.
