Himalayan Salt: Why it May be the BEST option for your HEALTH

Last night, we had the Warsaw Himalayan Salt Company speak at our office about Himalayan salt, its benefits, and ways to use it.  Salt is something that everybody has on their kitchen table, and yet not many people know what the best choice is in terms of their health.  Most salt that is readily available at restaurants, in homes, and on the grocery store shelf is regular table salt, Sodium Chloride.  For every gram of Sodium Chloride that your body can’t get rid of, it uses 23 times the amount of cell water to neutralize it. This causes excessive water to be stored in your tissue which can lead to cellulite, rheumatism, and kidney stones.  In terms of Sea Salt, it is a better option than table salt but still goes through quite a bit of processing due to pollutant chemicals in our oceans.  Himalayan salt is mined by hand and not touched by a single chemical.  Therefore, it contains most of the minerals necessary for our bodies.

Containing all of the 84 elements found in your body, the benefits of natural Himalayan Crystal Salt include:

  1. Regulating the water content throughout your body.
  2. Promoting a healthy pH balance in your cells, particularly your brain cells.
  3. Promoting blood sugar health and helping to reduce the signs of aging.
  4. Assisting in the generation of hydroelectric energy in cells in your body.
  5. Absorption of food particles through your intestinal tract.
  6. Supporting respiratory health.
  7. Promoting sinus health.
  8. Prevention of muscle cramps.
  9. Promoting bone strength.
  10. Regulating your sleep — it naturally promotes sleep.
  11. Supporting your libido.
  12. Promoting vascular health.
  13. In conjunction with water it is actually essential for the regulation of your blood pressure.

Everyone received a goody bag with some salt samples for culinary use, some samples for bathing, and salt rocks that you can heat for hand warmers!  They carry so many different things from hot/cold packs that contain salt (so they never go bad) to cooking stones that you can put in your oven and cook on!  They reminded me of the Pampered Chef stones that I have at my house but they impart flavor into the food.  I have been using Himalayan salt to cook with over the past month, and I have to say that I love it.  Not only does it taste amazing, I know that I am actually GAINING health benefits from using it.  For those of you that were unable to attend, they will be selling some of their products at University Park Mall in Mishawaka this Saturday, and I encourage you to head down and pick up a couple pounds of salt!
