Pink Himalayan Salt

Pink Himalayan salt is a truly unique salt.  This salt is classified as rock salt or halite, which comes from the Punjab region of Pakistan about 190 miles from the Himalayas. This region has one of the richest salt fields in the entire world, and they are very, very old. Himalayan salt is believed to be composed of dried remnants of the original, primal sea.

Himalayan crystal salt comes from salt mines 5,000 feet deep below the Himalayan Mountain Range. The salt from these mines has experienced tremendous pressure over millions of years and is said to be over 99 percent pure.  Pink Himalayan salt’s color as well as its color variations are indicative of its mineral content.  Himalayan crystal salt can be pink, white or red in color. As a salt, pink Himalayan salt is chemically sodium chloride (NaCl), which is defined as a “mineral substance of great importance to human and animal health.”

In general, salt is essential for maintaining healthy functioning of the body’s cells, nerve conduction, digestion, as well as the absorption of nutrients and the elimination of waste products.

Why Is Pink Himalayan Salt Better than Table Salt?

Pink Himalayan salt is a much more balanced and healthy choice in comparison to common table salt. True, high-quality pink Himalayan salt is one of the purest salts you can find. It’s even typically mined by hand.

With most table salts, you’re only left with one mineral (sodium), some added iodine and most often some really health-hazardous anti-clumping agent like yellow prussiate of soda. Many commercial table salts also undergo a bleaching process and contain aluminum derivatives and other terrible ingredients known to be highly toxic to human health.

Mineral composition

Himalayan salt is not chemically similar to table salt because it includes natural trace minerals. It consists of 95-98% sodium chloride, 2-4% poly-halite (potassium, calcium, magnesium, sulfur, oxygen, hydrogen), 0.01% natural fluoride, 0.01% real iodine, and micro-amounts of numerous trace minerals.

The salt crystals have an off-white to transparent color while impurities in some veins of salt give it a pink, reddish, or beef red color.  The reddish color is due to the presence of elements in poly-halite and trace minerals.
