Himalayan Pink Salt is a type of rock salt, or halite, which formed as a crystalline mineral in large deposits in the Himalayas. It is the most common type of Himalayan Salt. This type of salt can be used to flavor foods, in food preservation, for natural remedies and for various other purposes such as salt lamps and salt slabs that are used for cooking.
In order to understand about Himalayan Pink Salt, we first need to understand more about salt in general. Salt has the same fundamental importance to our life as water. We could not survive without water or salt. Salt is as vital as water. All the properties of salt that relate to our body are closely connected to water, because the crucial properties of salt- biochemically as well as biophysically- only exist in combination with water. The crystalline sole (so-lay), the saltwater brine, is unquestionably the energy matrix in which life begins, develops and subsists. Here by using the word “salt”, we mean salt in its original form: holistic, wholesome, unaltered, natural salt, as it has crystallized in the Earth over millions of years. When we speak of “table” salt that is sold in the super market, we refer to it as sodium chloride with additives, which is what it really is.
Himalayan Pink Salt is often regarded as the purest and natural form of salt on Earth. It has a very high mineral content. The color of this salt ranges from deep red to light pink depending on the mineral concentration. The pink color of this salt is specifically due to the presence of trace elements including iron. Some of the other key elements found in it include calcium, magnesium, copper and potassium. All of these minerals work together to provide a number of unique and significant health benefits.
