Himalayan Salt- So good For You!

January I did the Ultimate Reset from Beachbody for the first time.  I lost a total of 15 pounds and felt better than I had in a very long time.  It was then that I was introduced to Himalayan Pink Salt.  I was completely hooked on this salt and I carry a salt shaker with Himalayan salt every where I go.  The flavor is delicious.  The minerals in this salt bring out the best flavors of my food and I find that I put less salt on my food.

A little bit about this salt. It gets it pink color from all of the minerals contained within it naturally.  It contains over 84 minerals and trace elements such as: calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper and iron.

Regular consumption of Himalayan Pink salt provides essential minerals, trace elements, balances electrolytes, supports proper nutrient absorption, eliminates toxins, balances the body's pH, normalizes blood pressure and increases circulation.

With all those benefits, wouldn't you rather switch out your iodized table salt with something natural and from the earth with a better flavor??

Himalayan Pink Salt was originally formed from marine fossil deposits over 250 million years ago during the Jurassic era. Harvested from ancient sea beds, this rare and extraordinary salt has been a valuable commodity for centuries. Historically, the Himalayan people used this salt to preserve their fish and meat throughout the year, and every spring they transported the salt to Nepalese valleys for trade. Heavily burdened yaks would carry the salt along narrow sloping paths, mountains, and cliffs in order to sell and exchange the salt for other commodities.

Himalayan Pink Salt is still extracted from mines by hand, according to long-standing tradition, and without the use of any mechanical devices or explosion techniques. After being hand-selected, the salt is then hand-crushed, hand-washed, and dried in the sun. However it should be noted that most of the commercial supply of Himalayan Pink Salt on the market today is currently coming from the mountainous regions of Pakistan.

I like to put a teaspoon in my gallon of water a day to be sure I get proper minerals and electrolytes.  I sprinkle it on my food and I even cook with it.

Give it a try.  I bet you will love it just like I do!
