As you may know, I am a part time health nut. It occurs about 3 to 4 times a week. I am a firm believer in moderation and not completely obsessing over what to eat to be free of all bad things. A girl’s gotta have some guilty pleasures and indulgences sometimes, ya know? One of the things I have become more conscious of is my seasonings and things I use for my diet that can have multi-purpose uses, such as organic brown sugar, honey, ginger root, turmeric, etc. My newest trial and curiosity has been the pretty pink salts I’ve been seeing people use for their food and other things. The correct term for the pink salt is called Himalayan Salt. Now, I am by no means a medical expert but I do tend to read a lot and do enormous amounts of research because that’s just how I roll. Most of the articles I’ve read speak highly of this less refined salt and what benefits it has to offer.
Just a little History:
Himalayan pink salt is mined by hand in the Himalayan mountains. The color can range from white to deep red, depending upon its mineral and iron levels. Himalayan salt is richer in minerals than ordinary table salt, containing over 84 kinds that include calcium, potassium and magnesium. Believed to be the purest form of salt on Earth, Himalayan pink salt is mined from sea salt deposits from ancient sea beds–meaning it doesn’t contain the pollutants and chemicals found in today’s sea salt.

Not only does Himalayan salt work for your food (many top chefs uses it), it also works for the body, which is why some top spas and holistic health coaches uses it also. Consider it a brine bath – I haven’t tried it yet ( I may tonight), but apparently it helps to detoxify your body and strengthen the immune system. Aside from a luxurious and toxin-sucking soak, it also supports weight loss and balanced hormones. Check out the rest of the health benefits below.
