Salt is the oldest known spice that people have used since the ancient times. Today, the use of salt raises a question worthy of Hamlet: is it beneficial or harmful to use salt? As it turns out, the benefits of using salt depend directly on the amount of salt eaten and its naturalness. Therefore, if you really need to use salt, choose the most natural and valuable kind – Himalayan salt.
This is a completely natural product found in the earth.
What does Himalayan
salt look like?
Himalayan salt was formed hundreds of millions of years ago when the Tethys Ocean, then located in the Himalayan region, dried up, and the Himalayan mountain range was formed. Over millions of years, due to high temperatures and pressure, Himalayan salt has accumulated useful bio energy and solar energy.
This kind of salt does not contain harmful chemicals, and its nutrients are absorbed much better by the human body. A unique and very fascinating property of Himalayan salt is the fact that this kind of salt can clear the body of the remains of old salt and toxins together with water.
Himalayan salt may be the only salt with these properties! The secret of Himalayan salt lies in its simplicity – it is not processed or chemically purified, and this is why it does not contain any chemicals that can have a negative impact on health. This is a completely natural product found in the earth.
The main conditions ensuring the purity and naturalness of salt are the circumstances under which it was crystallized. Himalayan salt was crystallized about 250 million years ago and was only exposed to sunshine and perfectly clean air.
Where did it come from?
Layers of this salt, which is the most ancient salt on Earth, lay at a depth of 400-600 meters. Hidden under lava, they have been protected for millions of years by nature itself.
Therefore, this salt is completely natural and not contaminated by atmospheric impurities. Himalayan salt is mined in underground mines and processed manually: first it is sorted, then washed with water and passed through stones. No chemical additives, just natural salt, a gift of nature.
But what about refined table salt?
Most of us cannot imagine their daily diet without salt. However, refined or table salt loses many useful nutrients when it is processed, and the various additives that give this salt its dazzling white color and granular texture are not beneficial for the human body.

Facts to know
Pink salt is healthier because it contains more minerals than the regular kind.
If you are just getting started with Himalayan salt, many questions arise. Does it taste different from ordinary table salt, and will dishes seasoned with Himalayan salt still be tasty? They sure will, and perhaps, they will taste even better! Himalayan salt is different from table or refined salt because of its texture, composition and taste. Its taste is much softer, nicer and does not overpower the real taste of foods and dishes. Quite to the contrary, Himalayan salt emphasizes the natural flavors and tastes of foods and dishes, and shows their best qualities.
One more thing…
Another interesting fact: Himalayan salt can not only be used in the kitchen – a bath with Himalayan salt has a relaxing effect, softens the skin and removes dead skin cells. Inhalations with this salt effectively clear the respiratory system, and special candles made from Himalayan salt refresh the air in a house.
