The Health Benefits of Himalayan Crystal Salt are to:
- Balances the pH level
Himalayan Crystal Salt helps to balance the body's pH level through its alkalanizing effect. Many health problems occur due to the body becoming too acidic, so using Himalayan Crystal Salt is an easy way to help to neutralise the acidity and balance the pH. We tend to be most acidic in the morning when we wake up from a night's sleep, so taking a few teaspoons of the Sole solution first thing in the morning is a great way to alkalanize at the start of the day.
- Restores electrolytes & prevents cramps
Himalayan Crystal Salt replaces the electrolytes lost through perspiration. Taking the salt dissolved in some water is a great way of restoring the electrolytes in the body thereby preventing cramps.
- Balances blood pressure
The regular use of Himalayan Crystal Salt in preference to ordinary sodium chloride has been found to balance blood pressure. Since the Himalayan Crystal Salt is a balanced substance and the minerals are in balanced proprtion with each other, this salt can help to balance the intracellular pressure. The salt can help to break down colestrol in the arteries.
- Excellent source of minerals
Himalayan Crystal Salt contains 84 minerals, including calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc, selenium and manganese. The minerals are found in correct proportions for efficient absorption by the body. The salt mirrors the mineral content of our bodies so is a great way to restore the mineral balance.
- Prevents water retention
Sodium chloride can lead to water retention as when using that form of salt, the body retains water in order to protect itself from the harsh sodium chloride. Himalayan Crystal Salt hydrates the body without leading to extra weight caused by water retention.
- Reduces cravings
Since the Himalayan Crystal Salt is a whole, unrefined substance, it nourishes the body and the body can feel satisfied. This can lead to preference and enjoyment of natural and wholesome foods and cravings created by refined foods being reduced or eliminated.
The Uses of Himalayan Salt are:
- Flavouring of Food
Himalayan Crystal Salt may be used freely on food to add flavour and minerals.
- Bath Salt
Himalayan Crystal Salt may be added to a bath for a powerful cleansing and detoxifying effect. The minerals are absorbed through the skin which is the largest organ of the body, leaving the skin feeling soft, smooth and nourished.
- Sole(So-lay) Drinking Solution
Himalayan Crystal Salt may be used to make a balancing drinking tonic called a Sole(so-lay) Solution. It is recommended that one add 2-3 Tablespoons of the crystal salt to 500ml of good quality spring or mountain water, allowing it to dissolve over night. Take a few teaspoons of the Sole Solution in a glass of water first thing in the morning. This helps balance (alkalanize) the body's pH and stimulates the internal organs.
- Salt Lick
Large chunks of the Himalayan Crystal Salt may be used as a salt lick for horses, cows, sheep and other animals. The salt provides 84 minerals in balanced proportion, replacing electrolytes, preventing cramps and enhancing the overall well being of animals.
