So I’ll break it down into what exactly this miracle salt is and then we will go into the benefits in a little more detail and then you can decide if this is a staple in your life that you cannot possibly live without.
So what is Himalayan salt exactly?
The salt itself is a natural, pure mineral substance that is naturally pink in colour (thanks to iron oxide).
It is taken from the giant mines in the Pakistani part of the Himalayan Mountains.
It was used in ancient times as a natural medicine and also a therapeutic cure. Talk about rubbing salt into your wounds.
Now try to keep up, as there are a million different ways to significantly benefit your body and also your life when you start to use this miracle pink salt on a regular basis.
Benefit #1 – Provides Your Body with 84 Trace Minerals & Other Bio Compounds
I know, I know, I can’t possibly be serious. But it is in fact one of the cleanest, purest and most mineral dense salt available on the planet.
There are in fact over eighty, YES EIGHTY! Much needed trace minerals electrolytes, and other elements.
But don’t go shoveling it into your mouth too quickly, in large amounts it does in fact have trace minerals that are toxic to your body. I emphasize in LARGE AMOUNTS though, these little minerals go by the names of as radium, plutonium, uranium, thallium or lead.
Benefit #2 – Effective for Detox
Now we are talking, we all want to detox.
Whether it’s those sometimes awful tasting products you get or even a juice cleanse. Whenever you feel like you have drunk or eaten too much the common thing to do is to do a detox. Salt and water obviously play vital roles in our bodies, and they continue to on a daily basis for everyone.
Although water is the most important thing when detoxifying the body, it is salt that is in fact the vehicle to do so. Salt allows your body to transfer toxins from healthy cells to your bloodstream. From there, you can push them out of your systems. But remember that Himalayan salt has been proven to be much more efficient in the detoxification process over your traditional white versions.
Benefit 3#- lower your blood pressure
No this benefit has not been written by mistake.
Salt obviously contains sodium, and what is sodium responsible for? Fluid retention and rising ones blood pressure. Himalayan salt however contains smaller amounts of this substance over the humble regular table salt.
In addition to its minimal amounts of sodium, it also contains potassium that your body uses to actually lower your blood pressure and because Himalayan salt is actually absorbed into your bloodstream more efficiently this means that in small doses it can help to modulate your blood pressure.
Benefit #4 – Boosts Energy & Relaxes Your Body and helps to promotes Health of Your Arteries

As well as this salt can help you to eliminate all damage done to your arteries that could potentially lead to the creation of varicose or “spider” veins. It is tremendously effective at clearing up your arteries.
