You may have encountered various marketing campaigns about commercially available Himalayan salt.
Today, it is widely distributed by various companies across North America, Europe, and (the place that really counts) Australia. But many people still ask the question; what is Himalayan salt?
Himalayan salt is harvested from the Khewra Salt Mines in Pakistan, which is located at the foot of the Himalayan mountains, approximately 275 metres above sea level.
It is categorised as a marine fossil salt, which is believed to have been formed hundreds of million years ago.
According to experts, this special salt carries trace minerals that could hardly be found in regular table salt commercially and widely available today.
The crystals usually appear lustrous pink; hence, some people call it Himalayan pink salt. In some cases, the salt may feature an off-white and/or transparent color.
One could easily distinguish it from the regular types of salt sold in the market. The unique appearance also indicates the rarity that it has over other salts (in my humble opinion).
Ideal Molecular Structure
Himalayan salt is often defined and described as salt in its most natural and native form. With claims that this salt has been stored by nature under natural tectonic pressure for millions of years, no one could question its purity.
All other types of salt easily pale in comparison when issues about possible exposure to impurities are raised.
Himalayan salt features a unique composition / structure. The crystals have been found to store adequate ‘vibrational energy’ on the molecular level.
The inherent trace elements and minerals in the salt are in colloidal form so those are small enough to be readily absorbed by human body’s cells.
The array of elements found in Himalayan salt forms a compound wherein every molecule is inter-connected. This unique molecular bond allows vibrational component of up to 84 trace elements to be in ideal harmony with each other.
Such a molecular feature enables Himalayan salt to further and promote a healthier biological balance.
Himalayan salt does not burden our body like many other types of salts do.
The body could assimilate only a regulated amount of such salt crystals as there are effective and powerful loops that facilitate regulation of the absorption process.
You’ll not be consciously worried about taking too much of this salt.
Himalayan salt does not contribute to the typical health problems brought about by ordinary table salt like high blood pressure and kidney ailments.
Moreover, Himalayan salt is easily considered as currently the highest natural salt grade available. It is hand-washed and hand-mined.
On the molecular level, the crystalline structure of the salt is (almost) perfect, making it more immune to various electromagnetic fields.
It does not contain possible environmental pollutants.
Lastly, this salt does not prescribe any limitation on shelf life. Keep it, and grow old together if that’s your cup of tea.
It is definitely the salt for the health-conscious.
