Is Pink Himalayan Salt Really Good for You?
The Answer to This Is Yes &...Well, No?
Both table salt and pink Himalayan salt consist mostly of sodium chloride, but pink Himalayan salt has up to 84 other minerals and trace elements!
This salt is recognised for its beautiful pink colour, high mineral content, and its therapeutic properties.
Salt is often a hotly debated topic in the natural health community & we'll explore WHY in this blog post...
SALT = MONEY
It was literally once worth its weight in gold!
Yes, it is SO important to our health & longevity that has been used in multiple cultures & throughout history as currency.
Think about it like this; the human body has all these little "tradesmen" inside of them that create life, balance the body, take things apart & put things together on a consistent basis...they're called enzymes. Without enzymes, there's no life. Without minerals there's no enzymatic activity.
The 84 trace minerals we get from natural salt are like keys to unlock enzyme activity. Technically speaking they are called "cofactors" and they have the ability to turn on, or up, more enzymatic activity. This helps everything in your body from a faster metabolism, to the colour of your hair, to expressing more DNA, to your cleansing, healing and repair mechanisms.
Here's some benefits you can find with regular consumption of natural salt containing ALL its essential minerals and trace elements:
- Balances Electrolytes
- Increases Hydration
- Increases Metabolism
- Increases DNA Expression
- Supports Proper Nutrient Absorption
- Eliminates Toxins
- Balance Hormones
- Increase Cell Communication
- Increase Insulin Sensitivity
- Balances the Body’s pH
- Normalises blood pressure, and increases circulation and conductivity.
- It can also assist with relief from arthritis, skin rashes, psoriasis, herpes, and flu and fever symptoms.
If it's so good for us, then WHY does everyone tell me to stay away from it?
Table Salt, which is 97% Sodium Chloride (NaCl) is chemically produced, bleached and devoid of most other nutrients. They cook it at such high temperatures that it "denatures" the minerals and renders them useless, which throws the whole body's electrolyte balance off.
Lastly, they add anti-caking agents like; anti-caking agent (554), which is sodium aluminosilicate, a man-made product that increases heavy metal toxicity.
