Maybe you’ve heard about how beneficial Himalayan salt actually is to you, but it turns out that this ancient salt is much more powerful and more than we can even imagine!
This salt is mined only in the Himalayan mountains in India, China, Myanmar, and Nepal. The salt layers in the Himalayan mountains were covered with lava about 2 million years ago, so the salt remained clean and fresh, and also far from irritants.
This salt is one of the purest forms of the sea salt, and it has one of the most powerful medicinal properties because it contains countless beneficial minerals inside it. These minerals that are contained in the salt are working with sodium and therefore they are able to fight against many ailments and health issues.
Below you can find out about the most important things about this salt:
The pink Himalayan salt contains 84 minerals inside, such as fluoride, borate, sulfate, bicarbonate, potassium, bromide, strontium, and magnesium.
Therefore the Himalayan salt is able to easily regulate the electrolytes in our body, accelerate our metabolism, balance our pH levels and fluids, hydrate our body, strengthen our bones, boost the libido, prevent from muscle cramps, boost blood circulation, decelerates aging, and cleanses our body from heavy metals, toxins, and chemicals.
This salt is coming from the salty water body, but this form is the purest one. Also, it contains natural iodine, even though the sea salt contains the same components too, this salt has a crystal structure, which makes it very low in sodium, compared to the sea salt.
If we compare it to the table salt, which is processed a lot and from that process it is stripped from all beneficial minerals and is chemically bleached, its structure is also destroyed from the exposure to the high temperatures. This salt cannot dissolve in our body, just like it won’t dissolve in the foods, and the iodine that is contained in this salt is added artificially.
You can add the pink Himalayan salt to your meals as well, to your meat dishes, to your fish, or to your delicious fresh green salad. But this is not its only use, you can also use it for:

Put the water in a pot, put it on heat, and when it starts to boil add all of the ingredients inside to dissolve. Then when the ingredients are completely dissolved, leave the mixture to cool down for six hours. Then you can soak the port in the brine or the poultry to sit from 6 to 8 hours, then put it in the fridge to chill a little bit, for a couple of hours, after that you may roast it.
