Ancient, beautiful, and mysterious, Himalayan salt is one of the most valued elements on Earth and hails from the valleys and rivers which lie deep within the Himalaya Mountain Range. It has been coveted for centuries due to its beauty, rich mineral content and versatility.
Himalayan salt is incredibly unique - in appearance, texture, history and usage. This amazing salt carries a vast array of benefits both when used in the bath and when used in food. It softens the skin, soothes aches and pains, and contains up to 84 minerals that balance and detoxify the body. Himalayan salt is the one of the purest, most natural salts in the world. This pinkish salt is mined from ancient sea beds inside the Himalayan mountains. It is completely unrefined and comes to you in its raw, natural form. This salt was formed over 200 million years ago in the primeval sea where the first signs of life formed in the mineral rich water. Because of its location and how it was formed it is extremely pure and free of contaminants or pollutants. It gains its pink color from the high content of Iron. It also contains trace amounts of 84 minerals and elements including Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium, Iodine, Zinc and Sodium.
Himalayan salt, when left raw and in its natural state, is rich in nutrients and minerals. Since many of these elements found within each grain of salt naturally occur within us and in the environment, they are easily absorbed and utilized on a cellular level. This is why Himalayan salt is popular both as a food and as a bath salt - as salt goes, it is incredibly healthy and carries a variety of benefits.
Recent research suggests that natural unrefined salt, like our Himalayan salt, could be better than anything else, including calcium, for strengthening and building bone mass. Bones are made of at least a dozen minerals and we need all of them in perfect proportions in order to have healthy bones and healthy bodies.
