Since the beginning of life on earth, natural salt has been an essential element used by ocean flora, animals, and people. Himalayan Salt that comes from the earth is composed of eighty-four elements that are vital to life.
These nutrients are the same elements found in our bodies for maintaining optimum health. Our bodies contain the same salt fluid (water and natural salt,) as that found in the primordial sea.
No manufacturing company can create a substance that matches the healing and health properties of natural salt.
For example, when one s diet becomes deficient in trace elements, their cells lose the ability to manage their ions. The result of a loss in ion balance is the bursting of the body s cells which causes a whole host of health problems.
The body s ability to balance and manage ions is essential to preventing such conditions as muscle spasms, nervous disorders, and brain damage. As well, preventing ion loss helps maintain a proper PH balance to prevent diseases such as cancer. Maintaining ion balance is fundamental to ensuring cell regeneration and growth.
Natural salt contains minerals needed by the body to function properly. Minerals are inorganic nutrients that are absorbed by the body in the form of salts. There are eight major elements required by the body and the other elements are needed in traces.
The major elements are calcium, sodium, potassium, chlorine, phosphorus, sulfur and magnesium. A few of the trace elements include: iron, fluorine, copper, zinc, chromium, iodine, manganese, cobalt etc.
The benefits of unrefined natural salt include:
Natural salt helps to maintain a regular heartbeat due to its ability to regulate blood pressure.
Natural salt helps clear congestion in the lungs and nasal passages. It clears mucus, phlegm, and congested sinuses. Salt is a strong natural antihistamine
Natural salt helps to balance the body s blood sugar levels which benefits people suffering from diabetes.
Natural salt helps to remove excess acidity from the cells of the body which helps to help prevent such conditions as Cancer
Natural salt is essential for power generation at the sites of energy needed by the cells. Essential to the production of the body’s principal energy source, adenosine triphosphate (ATP), natural salt contains elements that are the source of protons necessary for ATP production.
Natural salt is essential to nerve cell communication and information processing which is vital to proper brain function.
Natural salt is essential to maintaining strong bones and warding off such bone conditions as Osteoporosis. As well, it is necessary for absorption of food particles through the intestinal tract.
Natural salt does not contain any chemical additives that can be harmful to the body.
For instance, manufactured salt contains aluminum which is harmful to the nervous system. Aluminum has been implicated as a one of the major causes of Alzheimer s disease.
Himalayan Salt is one of the healthiest and purest natural salts available. The salt formed 250 million years ago when the sun dried up the original prehistoric ocean.
It is completely perfect and natural and equal to the structure of the earliest primitive sea. The salt is full of minerals and nutrients that are found naturally in our bodies.
When the ancient sea near the Himalayas dried up from the sun s heat, the Himalaya mountain range began to rise. The layers of salt that were deposited settled deep into the ground.
For millions of years, the layers of accumulated salt underwent an enormous amount of pressure and temperatures resulting in the formation of pure and uncontaminated crystal salt.
The salt is mined, not processed from sea water, in the Himalayas in the foothills of Pakistan using methods that preserve the salt s purity and structural integrity. It is hand excavated, washed and dried.
