It's just salt isn't it? Himalayan Pink Salt is actually a special type of rock crystal salt that is mined near the Himalayan foothills in the Punjab region of Pakistan. This is considered as one of the purest salts in the world and it gets its faint rosy hue from minerals such as calcium, potassium, and magnesium which are all very beneficial to our health.
Here are some health benefits of Himalayan Pink Salt:
Lower Blood Pressure
Pink salt is all natural as opposed to processed table salt so this means that the body can easily absorb these essential minerals
Calcium, potassium, and magnesium can help absorb other nutrients in the gastrointestinal tract which means pink salt can effectively help in digesting your food more easily. Improved digestion also results in better bowel movement.
Helps Eliminate Acid Reflux
You can effectively reduce acid reflux by simply taking a pinch of Himalayan Pink Salt and dissolving it inside your mouth followed by drinking a glass of water. Sodium Chloride can balance the hydrochloric acid inside your stomach, maintaining its overall balance.
Has Soothing and Detoxifying Properties
A warm salt bath with Himalayan Pink Salt can relax sore and tired muscles due to the magnesium and other essential minerals found in it. Most importantly, Himalayan Pink Salt has powerful anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties that can prevent skin ailments such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis.
