I’m sure you’re all aware of the health damages of a high sodium diet. The medical facts are well established and irrefutable. However, it is crucial to note that these medical studies are referring to highly refined table salt that is almost pure sodium chloride. Refined sodium chloride does indeed throw off the body’s mineral balance because this salt is depleted of the minerals that the body needs. Toxic additives like aluminum hydroxide increase the potential for harmful effects from this type of salt even more.
Additionally, most sea salts on the market, including those that are used in various health food products, are still highly refined.
Eliminating refined salts from our diet is clearly necessary for good health. It is important to note however, that NO salt in our diet is actually BAD for our health. Hillel W. Cohen, an assistant professor of epidemiology and population health at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City, conducted a 13 year study on 7,278 people. After assessing deaths from heart disease and any other cause during a 13-year follow-up, they found that the less salt (good salt not refined) people ate, the greater their risk of dying from heart disease.
So what to do?
The good news is that there is another type of salt. It is a life-enhancing unrefined, pure mineral salt called Himalayan Pink Salt. Modern scientific research indicates that the rediscovery of natural salt may become the most important health discovery of the 21st century
Clearly, to be healthy, we need salt in our diet, but not refined salt!
So what is Himalayan Pink Salt?
Himalayan Pink Salt is pure, hand-mined salt found naturally deep inside the pristine Himalayan Mountains. Harvested from ancient sea salt deposits, it is believed to be the purest form of salt available. The high mineral crystals range in color from sheer white, varying shades of pink, to deep reds, the result of high mineral and iron content. Himalayan Pink Salt has a rich mineral content that includes over 84 trace elements such as: calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper and iron. This salt is recognized for its beautiful pink color, high mineral content, and its therapeutic properties. 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 and conductivity. It can also assist with relief from arthritis, skin rashes, psoriasis, herpes, and flu and fever symptoms.
You can find this salt at most health food stores, however, you should know your source to be assured you are getting pure, uncut, unadulterated Himalayan Pink Salt. I have found a very reliable supplier of this product who sells it for an excellent price. However, he only has a limited supply so if you’re interested you should order soon.
At the local health food stores Himalayan Pink Salt is sold in 7 oz containers for $8.99 or more. That works out to $19.50 a pound. My supplier will sell TWO pounds of ground Pink Salt for $19.95 which is less than $10.00 a pound. On average the shipping fee is $9.00. The pound price then, including shipping, would be $14.50 a lb. Still a $5.00 per pound savings. Additionally, if you buy in groups and have it shipped to one location, the shipping cost will drop considerably.
CSA hosts may want to provide this for their members. Other North County members can do a group purchase through me and pick up in Vista. Contact me for more information.
I have been using Himalayan Pink Salt for years now and I just can’t use anything else. I carry some with me everywhere I go. It is absolutely fantastic and I highly recommend it.
