What is Himalayan Salt and Why You Should Use It?
Himalayan salt is much healthier than the table salt we use on a regular basis. It is obtained from the unpolluted areas deep in the Himalayan mountains, and is free from any kind of contaminants.
This salt, also known as ‘pink gold’ is 100% natural and has been used for thousands of years. The 84 elements it contains help our organism maintains a healthy balance. In addition, Himalayan salt contains valuable minerals like iron, calcium, potassium, and magnesium as well as significantly lower amounts of sodium than table salt. All these nutrients are found in the salt crystals and are very easy to be used up by the organism.
