Discover the salt that's actually good for you! Hand-mined from deep inside the Himalayan Mountains, the 84 natural minerals and trace elements contained in Himalayan Crystal Salt are identical to those in our bodies. All of these inherent minerals and trace elements are available in colloidal form, meaning they are so small your cells can readily absorb them. 100% pure, unrefined Himalayan Crystal Salt 8 Oz.

Modern Table Salt
Today's common salt is chemically refined. All of the natural minerals are removed because they are considered to be impurities, and the salt is reduced only to sodium and chloride. This process makes the salt unhealthy. Eating common table salt results in the formation of edema, or excess fluid in the body tissue, which is also the cause of cellulite. For every .035 ounces of refined table salt that the body cannot get rid of, the body uses 23 times the amount of its own cell water to neutralize this salt. If the sodium chloride is still too high, re-crystallization of the table salt occurs that is deposited directly in the bones and joints. This is the cause of different kinds of rheumatism such as arthritis, gout, and kidney/gall stones. In short, it takes very little refined table salt to make our bodies weak, dehydrated, and prone to disease.
Oceans cover 70% of our earth. However, the oceans are being degraded with nuclear waste, industrial waste and farm chemical run-off. It has become common to hear news of at least one fractured oil tanker causing catastrophe each year. Recent government warnings about the increased levels of mercury in our oceans limit us to eat fish only once or twice a month. Today, sea salt does not have the same positive impact on our health, as it used to. Most sea salt undergoes a refining process, that removes a great deal of the health benefits, to get it to the packaged commodity stage.
Himalayan Crystal Salt
Himalayan Salt is pre-pollution and without environmental impact. It is absolutely the most pristine, pure, totally natural, unrefined, and cleanest salt available. It is identical in minerals to the ancient primal ocean with all the minerals and trace elements our body needs. The natural minerals contained in Himalayan Crystal Salt are identical to the minerals in our bodies.
Years ago when the formation of the Himalayas began, the primal ocean evaporated with the energy of the sun as the mighty Himalayas were rising. Salt from the primal ocean was trapped and over time, with intense pressure and temperatures, the salt became crystallized. The higher the amount of pressure, the more superior the crystalline structure. The degree of compression within this mountain range was so extreme that it created perfectly structured crystal grids within the salt.
Today, this Crystal Salt, buried deep in the Himalayan Mountains, is mined and processed entirely by hand to bring you a salt that retains 100% of the original qualities of this ancient body of water.
The moment it again touches water or is heated, this special salt will come alive, setting free its inherent, stored healing energy that can benefit our bodies tremendously.
The Neutralizing Effects of Himalayan Crystal Salt
The largest and oldest salt works in Europe occupies the Royal Salt Mine of Wieliczka, Poland. Here, a hospital was carved out of the expansive salt mountain, specifically for asthmatics, and patients with lung disease and allergies. Thousands of patients have been successfully treated in this hospital with the astonishingly healing rate of over 90%.
Our houses and lives are charged with electromagnetic devices, such as TVs, stereos, computers, microwave ovens, cell phones, and the basic electric currents running through our walls. This electro-smog causes an excess of positively charged ions that disturbs the balance between the positively and negatively charged particles. Further, it creates an excess of positively charged, chemically unbound particles in the air. Only thirty seconds on a cell phone is enough to open up our blood-brain-barrier (a natural barrier that protects our brain from toxins), for eight hours.
Common activities like cleaning, cooking, heating, and cooling can release and spread indoor pollutants in our homes. Studies have repeatedly demonstrated that the inside of our homes can be more polluted than outside.
Negative ions are found naturally in the forests and mountains, but the farther away from these natural ecosystems we are, the more negative ions we lose.
Modern researchers at the University of Madras studying Himalayan Crystal Salt have come up with the good news - it can help control body weight, reduce obesity, and improve skin gloss. They also point out that Himalayan Crystal Salt has a protective action in liver diseases (hepatoprotective activity), and also helps in preventive action in heart diseases and neuro-digestive diseases.
