Salt is certainly a vital element in the human body and we cannot take its importance away from our daily cooking. There are different types and different uses of salt in the world. Mainly, we can categorize it in two categories, such as good and bad! While I was conducting a thorough research for the right kind of salt for the health of family, I met a chef who uses Himalayan salt in his recipes and after talking to him, I was amazed by its qualities and health benefits that encouraged me to read thoroughly about it. Today, I am going to share my experience with you in detail that might also help you.
History of Himalayan Salt
While reading about its history, I came to know that this salt is found from the ancient mountains of Himalaya that are based in Pakistan. Actually, the Himalayan salt history is quite amazing as there was originally an ancient sea about 250 million years ago and that was covered by the great Himalayan Mountains because of the movement of the earth plates. So, where we see the tall standing beautiful Himalayan Mountains today, there was once a sea.
When the Himalayan Mountains covered that ancient sea, the sea dried under the enormous pressure and heat and evaporated the water. As a result, the large crystals of pink salt were formed that left uncovered from the world’s pollution and impurities. This salt is considered as the world’s purest and healthiest type of salt as it is rich in minerals and doesn’t have any chemicals or additives to affect the health. The masons are mining it by hands and this salt is being transported to different regions and localities for different uses.
Benefits of Himalayan Salt
The Himalayan salt, that is also known as the pink salt because of its natural color that is pink has got a bundle of health benefits for the humans. From treating a number of diseases by using it for skin improvement or detoxification this salt have everything to offer for the good reasons. Actually, the benefits of the Himalayan salt are countless and I found some of them very interesting and amazing too. Here are the top pink salt benefits that attracted me the most
84 Minerals & the Other Bio Compounds
As we discussed earlier that the Himalayan salt is the most “mineral dense” version of the salt available on the earth that is pure and clean from any impurities of the world, so it has a number of health benefits for us. There are 84 amazingly health beneficial minerals in this version of the salt and the reason why it is said to be the world’s purest and cleanest salt type is because it is only found in the Himalayan Mountains that are far away from the pollution of the metropolitan areas and the companies who sell it never use the lesser compounds to cut it.
As a result, all the 84 minerals remain as it is and nothing artificial or chemical is added into it. It means that you are going to get a perfect injection into your bloodstream that will be a combination of these 84 minerals and the other bio compounds while you are getting it through your diet.
It Effectively Detoxify Your Body
For the human bodies, the salt and water acts together to play a vital role, and they always do it on a regular basis. In order to detoxify the human body, water has the utmost importance. On the other hand, the salt acts like a vehicle that has to transport the toxins from the healthy cells in your bloodstream and eventually, pushing them right out of your body. The pink version is recognized to be the most effective version and it is scientifically approved to be far more efficient than the traditional versions that are also known as the processed versions.
Lowering the Blood Pressure
The Himalayan salt has proven abilities to lower the high blood pressure dramatically and at the same time, it also stimulates the better circulation. You can increase the circulation and lower the high blood pressure, if you have an adequate amount of the salt in your organism. The Himalayan salt has the ability to be absorbed in the bloodstream much more effectively and efficiently, so it can do it in a more effective and efficient way.
Relax the Muscles and Your Mind
If you are feeling fatigued, foggy or stressed, then there might be a deficiency of salt and electrolytes in your body. This salt has a very unique composition and that allows it to get absorbed in the bloodstream much more quickly and effectively as compared to the other traditional and processed salts. IT will allow you to restore & replenish the organism in a hurry.
Banishing the Sinus Issues and the Respiratory Conditions
It can be great to remove clear the sinus issues and to improve the respiratory conditions, after dissolving it in the hot water. It can also be great for the patients of the asthma.
Improved Sleep Quality
You will have a far better, healthier and more regular sleep, when your muscles are relaxed and the mind is at ease. You can replace the traditional processed salt with the Himalayan salt, if you want to improve the mental and physical health dramatically. So, it will dramatically improve the sleep quality and you will have it on a more regular basis.
Balanced Acidity and Alkaline Levels of Body
This salt can be a great factor to help you maintain a perfect balance between the body’s acidity and the alkaline levels, when you have prepared a salt bath. You would just need to put 2 pounds of the pink salt in a single warm bath and it would be enough for the trick.
This will eliminate all the damages to the arteries that have the potential to lead to the creation of the varicose veins (spider veins). This can clear the arteries and improve the circulation of the blood that will eliminate the potential for the varicose veins from ever popping up.
Uses of Himalayan Salt
Because of the several health benefits associated with this salt, there are a number of different uses of this great salt type. Following are the few great Himalayan salt uses that I found through my research:
Because of its “mineral dense” nature and a number of benefits that are directly linked with the human health through the diet, this salt is becoming ever popular for all the top chefs and even in the kitchens of the ordinary individuals. The people are becoming more and more aware of the nutritional values and they are now looking for the health boosting products such as Himalayan salt that has the best value for their health. This salt is flying off on every departmental store’s shelve and people are replacing their traditional edible salt and the seasoning with it.
Because of the mineral composition and the other bio compounds, this salt is acting in multiple ways to increase the health and wellness of the people. Companies are using this salt to make natural air purifying objects such as a salt lamp that emits negative ions in the air to make the indoor environment clean and purified where one can breathe easily in an allergen-free atmosphere. So, you can also grab these unique salt lamps and put them in your bedrooms and other living areas where you need a conditioned air.
The Himalayan salt blocks are also gaining popularity worldwide. A salt block is a great addition to every kitchen and it’s a large piece of the pink salt that is carved by the hands to form a plate shape. These salt plates can be used to serve or cook the seafood, vegetables, chicken, and also the cold dishes such as the raw fish. Again, the 84 minerals of the Himalayan salt will do plenty of benefits while you are cooking on it.
If you are feeling tired and stressed at the end of a hectic day job, then you can plan a salt and mineral bath as it is a great way to relax through simultaneously infusing your skin and the body with the minerals and hydration. The skin soaks up the minerals from the water through the dermal absorption process.
The Himalayan salt is added to the warm bathwater in order to get the necessary nutrients to the body through the salt bath. Along with that, the Himalayan pink salt also works as a very strong detoxifier as it turns into an ionic solution after dissolving in the water, and then it draws all the toxins right out of your skin and the adipose tissues. The Himalayan salt will offer a unique healing mineral infusion and that along with the minerals will make you feel refreshed and a lot more energized.
In fact, there are a lot more uses and the health benefits of using this mineral dense salt version. I will recommend you to replace the traditional processed salt (if you are using one) with the great Himalayan pink salt to get all the health advantages that are linked with it. I am more than happy by using this version of the salt and I am pretty much sure that you will also get benefit from its minerals and bio compounds that are found naturally in this salt.
