The Benefits of Himalayan Salt

Himalayan Crystal Salt

Himalayan crystal salt is far superior to traditional iodized salt. Himalayan salt is millions of years old and pure, untouched by many of the toxins and pollutants that pervade other forms of ocean salt.

Known in the Himalayas as “white gold,” Himalayan Crystal Salt contains the same 84 natural minerals and elements found in the human body. This form of salt has also been maturing over the past 250 million years under intense tectonic pressure, creating an environment of zero exposure to toxins and impurities.

Himalayan salt’s unique cellular structure allows it to store vibrational energy. Its minerals exist in a colloidal form, meaning that they are tiny enough for our cells to easily absorb.

Himalayan Crystal Salt: The Health Benefits

The health benefits of using natural Himalayan Crystal Salt may include:

  • Controlling the water levels within the body, regulating them for proper functioning
  • Promoting stable pH balance in the cells, including the brain.
  • Encouraging excellent blood sugar health
  • Aiding in reducing the common signs of aging
  • Promoting cellular hydroelectric energy creation
  • Promoting the increased absorption capacities of food elements within the intestinal tract
  • Aiding vascular health
  • Supporting healthy respiratory function
  • Lowering incidence of sinus problems, and promoting over-all sinus health
  • Reducing cramps
  • Increasing bone strength
  • Naturally promoting healthy sleep patterns
  • Creating a healthy libido
  • Circulator support
  • Promotes kidney and gall bladder health when compared to common chemically-treated salt

Table salt: “The Health Destroyer”

Many people are unaware that common table salt contains chemicals and even sugar! Salt is necessary but can be dangerous if taken in this chemical form.

Table salt is composed of 97.5% sodium chloride and 2.5% chemicals like iodine and absorbents, and sugar. Common salt is dried at more than 1,200° Fahrenheit, a process which zaps many of the natural chemical structures.

The table and cooking salt found in most homes, restaurants, and processed foods is void of nutritional value, lacking beneficial trace minerals. Processing salt turns it into sodium chloride, an unnatural salt the human body actually sees as a toxic invader! The body cannot dispose of it in a natural, healthy way which can lead to irritation of the tissues, water retention and high blood pressure.

Processed salt crystals are also energetically dead, as their crystals are completely isolated from one another. For the body to metabolize chemical table salt, it must waste tremendous amounts of energy to keep the body at optimum fluid balance. This creates a burden on the elimination systems in the body. Water is removed from other cells in attempt to neutralize the unnatural sodium chloride.

Studies show that for each gram of table salt your system cannot process, your body will use over twenty times the amount of cellular water to neutralize the sodium chloride in chemically-treated salt. This can lead to cellulite, rheumatism, arthritis, gout, as well as kidney and gallbladder stones. The average American consumes 5,000 mg of sodium chloride a day, the issue is serious and needs to be adressed.

Choosing to use Himalayan Salt as an alternative can have a big impact on your total health and well-being. I only use and recommend Original Himalayan Crystal Salt.

    Same studies and clinical trials that say GMOs are safe or fluoride in our drinking water or aspertine, and on and on until the scientific community has the peoples best interest in mind not the corporations that fund them it would be of little value, I personally prefer to trust in my own innate ability to determine whether something is good or bad for me same ability we all have but it’s always easier to Google and believe others than to questions and explore for ourselves. We are all scientists as science is simply the expression of what is thought to be known and is forever changing as the collective conciusness evolves, but that’s not to say we can’t learn from each other just must be sure of the intentions of those we look to for clues.

    Who did the studies you refer to?

  • David_R59

    All together a perfectly useless article.
    Lots of information about what’s in table salt but nothing about what’s in Himalayan Salt.

    You know, this is exactly the kind of stuff that embarrasses me about being a part of the liberal and new age communities. We’ve become a cliche.

    Pick a food or substance, reject its American version, “discover” a remote or jungle version overseas, put the location in front of the food’s name, bring it here, and suddenly it has magical health and “well-being” benefits – and costs 3000% higher.

    Oh new agers my fellow new agers. Activating kundalini shouldn’t pop our brain cells out of our heads and into the garbage can, but seems it does. With every asana we seem to get more and more naive. This needs to stop, NOW.

    Somebody please define for me, scientifically, what “well-being” is, why we are all chasing it, why it takes eating or a bath to get it, and what “promotes” and “encourages” actually DO.

    I can’t take this anymore. I’m certainly not going to become a Christian or conservative, but the Caucasian yoga and Whole Foods crowd have completely ruined universal awakening for me. Perhaps it’s better to go back to sleep. We’re awful people. This is disgusting.

    Yeah, “magical salt”.

    Remember when it was Acai berries? I CAN’T STAND THIS ANYMORE

    According to Dr. Wallach from Youngevity, The body needs salt for various functions. During the summer, when the weather is hot, your body uses salt for hydration. If your doctor tells you to reduce your salt intake, You need to find a naturalpathic doctor. Back in the late 90’s, there was a heat wave in Chicago. 175 people died from heat exhaustion because they were elderly and on a salt restricted diet. Their doctors never told them to increase they’re salt intake.
    Think about this…The first thing a good farmer does is put salt blocks out for his cattle. SO just salt your food to taste and you’ll be fine.
