Himalayan Pink Salt: from bath to kitchen

Being on a mission to eat and treat my body better, I research many ideas for cooking healthier meals.  One of my quests is to find multiple use products and ingredients. In the past few years Himalayan Pink Salt products have gained mainstream notoriety due to the major benefits it can provide to the human body. 

Himalayan Pink Salt is said to be salt at it’s purest form due to there being no changes to it’s composition when harvested. The fact that regular table salt has been chemically altered with anti-clumping agents and additives that strip the important elements from the salt is shocking. Himalayan pink salt is rich with minerals such as iron, magnesium, calcium, and potassium. It also contains traces of fluoride, iodine, zinc, and copper just to name a few. Due to many horror stories regarding low-sodium and sodium-free diets many people shy away from this important component from our diets. However using Himalayan pink salt can replace the regular salt in a much healthier way.
