Coarse-Ground Himalayan Pink Salt Millions of years ago, two continents collided and the magnificent Himalayan Mountain range was formed. As the mountains rose out of the ocean, they took with them large deposits of salt. These deposits were formed long before man polluted the oceans with toxins and heavy metals, and to this day, remain pure. Our Himalayan Salt is a wholesome, unprocessed natural salt that comes from the East Karakoram range of the Himalayan Mountains in Pakistan. Our Coarse-Ground Himalayan Salt is hand crushed for use in your salt grinder. It has all the characteristics of the original crystals from which it comes, and it has a distinctive “alive” taste that's naturally delicious. Slightly pink in color. You can use this precious salt to help you balance your energy and improve your health. Incorporate Himalayan Crystal Salt into your cooking or seasoning, or make a mineral infusion called sole (pronounced so-lay) with pure water. It can also be used to create a therapeutic and healing saltwater bath solution. 16 ounce resealable package. Himalayan Crystal Salt Himalayan Crystal Salt has a wide range of exciting characteristics: Over 250 million years old Captivating pink diamond-like crystals from within the Himalayan Mountains Contains all minerals and trace elements essential to the body's health High crystalline structure allows the nutrients to be absorbed at the cellular level Can restore the body's alkaline balance and electrolytes Extensively researched Hand mined with respect for nature, the environment, and the workers Common table salt, which is basically sodium chloride, has numerous known health risks. Our bodies recognize it as an unnatural substance and try to eliminate it as quickly as possible, overburdening our organs of excretion. Because we are only able to excrete a limited amount of it through our kidneys, our bodies use cell water to neutralize it, causing cell dehydration as well as overly acidic edema, or excess fluid in the body tissue. High levels of sodium chloride also lead to overproduction of uric acid, which binds with the sodium chloride, resulting in arthritis, gout, and kidney and gall bladder stones. In contrast, natural salt or its inherent elements is needed for even the simplest processes in our body. When we lack the natural elements in salt, we suffer from a chronic energy deficit. And, despite the large quantities of sodium chloride we consume, most of us have inadequate natural salt intake. Fortunately, there is an easy solution to our salt deficit. Incorporate Himalayan Salt into your cooking or seasoning on a daily basis. And to make sure you are receiving the full benefits of the salt, make a mineral infusion called sole (pronounced so-lay; from the Latin word for “sun”) from salt and pure water, and use it to balance your energy and improve your health simply and naturally. A recent study utilizing Himalayan Salt and a high-quality bottled artesian water (FIJI Water), demonstrated the beneficial effects of using sole: Remineralizes the body with 80+ minerals and trace elements essential to health Replenishes electrolytes and helps to balance the body's pH Causes significant positive changes in respiratory, circulatory, organ, connective tissue, and nervous system functions Patients who drank the artesian water and used Himalayan Salt also reported increases in quality of sleep, energy and concentration levels, brain activity, and nail and hair growth. Our Himalayan Salt is hand mined to preserve its bio-energetic qualities with low environmental impact. We carry it in three forms: fine granulated, coarse, and stones (used for making sole).
