A WONDERFUL NATURAL PRODUCT FROM THE ROOF OF THE EARTH
Himalayan Salt has been formed over more than 200 million years ago as a result of the drying-up of the prehistoric sea.
Through the formation of the Himalayan Mountains, the salt was covered.
Today it is still protected and being kept away from any environmental pollution and harmful wastes.
This is the reason why Himalayan Salt is pure and rich of many trace minerals, such as iron, potassium, magnesium, and calcium rather than Sodium which is also found in casual salt.
These minerals (especially iron) give to the Salt its light-pink tint.
Pink Himalayan salt is a pink-colored salt extracted from the Khewra Salt Mine, which is located near the Himalayas in Pakistan.
The Khewra Salt Mine is one of the oldest and largest salt mines in the world.
The pink Himalayan salt have been formed millions of years ago from the evaporation of ancient bodies of water.
The salt is hand-extracted and minimally processed to yield an unrefined product that’s free of additives and thought to be much more natural than table salt.
Like table salt, pink Himalayan salt is mostly comprised of sodium chloride.
However, the natural harvesting process allows pink Himalayan salt to possess many other minerals and trace elements that are not found in regular table salt.
Some people estimate it may contain up to 84 different minerals and trace elements. In fact, it’s these very minerals, especially iron, that give it its characteristic pink color.
Because of the potential dangers of consuming too much table salt, many people have turned to using pink Himalayan salt, believing it to be a healthier alternative.
Pink Himalayan Salt Contains More Minerals
Both table salt and pink Himalayan salt compose mostly of sodium chloride, but pink Himalayan salt has up to 84 other minerals and trace elements. These include common minerals like potassium and calcium, as well as lesser-known minerals like strontium and molybdenum.
Below is a comparison of well-known minerals found in a gram of the two salts:
|Well Known Minerals||Common Table Salt||Pink Himalayan Salt|
From Punjab – PAKISTAN
|Common Table Salt versus Himalayan Pink Salt|
|COMMON TABLE||HIMALAYAN PINK|
|“Purified”, a process that involves a re-crystallization at over 648°C||Contains 84 essiential minerals required by the human body|
|97,5% sodium chloride, 2,5% additives||85% sodium chloride, 15% trace minerals|
|Depeted of its natural minerals||A goodsource of magnesium, in which 80% of all individuals are deficient|
|Includes anti-caking compounds||Promotes a healthy pH balance of the cells|
|Likely contains idoine and/or is fluoridated||Helps regulate blood sugar levels|
|Hepls regulate the body’s natural sleep cycle|
