Himalayan pink salt is a type of mineral salt that is mined from the foothills of the Himalayas. It has matured for millions of years under intense tectonic pressure and is untouched by many of the toxins and pollutants that permeate ocean salt.
It contains the same 84 minerals and elements found in the human body. It is chemically similar to table salt. Contains up to 98% sodium chloride. The rest consists of trace elements, such as potassium, magnesium and calcium, which give the salt a light pink hue. The presence of these trace elements also explains why this particular salt tastes different from ordinary table salt. In contrast to table salt, which due to its chemical treatment has eliminated almost all trace elements, pink Himalayan salt is clearly better.
It is used in the same way as ordinary salt - in cooking, seasoning food and food preservation but also in the bathroom as bath salts.
- Contains less sodium than table salt. It is rich in minerals.
- The minerals it contains are in colloidal form, which means that they are very small and thus easily absorbed by our cells.
- Contains less sodium. But it has a more intense taste than table salt, which means that you need less to have the same effect on the taste.
- Enhances hydration. Adding pink salt to a meal or drink is believed to help the body optimize fluid balance, thus preventing dehydration.
- It reduces retention as the absorption of the trace elements it contains stimulates functions that control fluid levels in the tissues.
- It is a more natural type of salt. Does not contain additives and flow enhancers.
- It contains less iodine than table salt.
Caution! Although sodium is essential in our lives, too much has a negative effect on health, so it is important to be careful about your intake of any type of salt. People with kidney, heart or liver problems or people on a low-sodium diet should be careful about their sodium intake and limit their use of all types of salt.
