Himalayan Salt…have you heard of it? In the discussion of “sea salt” with my trusted health guru Mario from Canada, he made me aware NOT ALL SALT IS CREATED EQUAL!
I have used Sea Salt for decades, but I didn’t know there are better Sea Salts and I might not be doing my body any good with the one I had from the Mediterranean Sea in Spain.
Your body needs salt. Without salt, you cannot survive. Your body cannot adjust its own water content without it. The problem we face in modern life is our salt on the table is the wrong kind of salt; over-processed, undernourished, and containing pollutants. However, in the Himalayan’s there is a salt source that is over 250 million years old, without modern day contaminants and with all of the natural minerals that enhance the salt and feed our bodies.
I cannot re-write Dr. Mercola’s entire educational pitch on Himalayan Salt, but I have quoted his top ten reasons to use it. Also, at the bottom, you can listen to his interview with a German nutritionist who has become an expert in the area of salts and minerals.
Here is what Dr. Mercola says about Himilayan Sea Salt:
Containing all of the 84 elements found in your body, the benefits of natural Himalayan Crystal Salt include:
