Salt is an essential mineral that our bodies require. Without it, our bodies develop deficiencies as it becomes chemically imbalanced. Our nervous system, muscles and the entire body eventually weaken.There are varieties of different kinds of salt from sea salt to white salt, but there is one that provides benefits to the body and it is known as, “Pink Himalayan Salt.” This salt has been found to contain many beneficial minerals that are essential to our bodies.
Origin of Pink Himalayan Salt
From its origin which is the Himalayan Mountain, about 200 million years back, crystallized sea beds of salt covered with lava were discovered.
The salt is said to have been kept in a pristine surrounding where it was untouched hence protected from any pollution found in the modern day. The salt was constantly enveloped by ice and snow causing people to believe that the pink salt was the purest kind found on Earth.
Why is the salt believed to be beneficial to the body?
Pink Himalayan Salt contains many minerals as it was naturally formed. The salt is made up of 85.62% of Sodium Chloride as well as 14.38 of other mineral traces such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, sulphate, borate, fluoride, bromide, iron and bicarbonate. Hence, due to these minerals the salt provides the following healing benefits to our bodies:
- Lowers blood pressure: Pink Himalayan Salt is a natural source of sodium which assists in the regulation of blood pressure as well as help to control contraction of muscles, nerves transmissions and effective heart functions
- Balancing the PH levels of the body: The salt helps in promoting a proper balance between your alkaline and acid levels. This helps the body to relax and assist in the reduction of acid reflex in the body.
