Pink Sea Salt is a rock salt mined in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains in India. It was first used by the Hindus of India as their religious salt. Today, it is used around the world for its varied uses including for table salt, for sprinkling food, for spa treatment and for many other applications including food preparation, decorative, therapeutic and industrial uses. There are two kinds of this pink salt; kosher and “people’s” salt.
Scientifically known as monosodium phosphate, this Himalayan pink salt benefits most people because it increases blood circulation, lowers bad cholesterol levels and increases the body’s ability to eliminate waste products and toxins from cells. Among its many other health benefits, it can help you to: lower bad cholesterol levels, improve blood circulation, improve your nervous system, improve your vision and more. It is better to use this salt in conjunction with table salt rather than using table salt alone as both types have very different mineral and chemical compositions.
In addition to the above mentioned benefits, the pink sea salt contains trace minerals such as calcium, magnesium, sulphur and potassium. Each of these minerals improves the health of the human body in a variety of ways. For example, calcium helps the body make stronger bones and teeth; potassium helps to regulate fluid levels in the body; and magnesium increases the body’s ability to excrete waste and toxins.
