People need salt in their daily diet in order to live. Since the human body is not capable of producing its own salt, we depend upon the various sources of salt in food to ensure our necessary daily intake. Salt for human consumption is produced in a variety of ways.
As common as saltshakers are to our kitchen, so are the numbers of diseases associated with salts daily use. Life is not possible without salt. But our consumption of salt is killing us. Why is that? Because our regular table salt no longer has anything in common with the original crystal salt. Salt nowadays is mainly sodium chloride and not salt Natural crystal salt consists not only of two, but also of all natural elements. These are identical to the elements of which our bodies have been built and originally found existing in the “primal ocean” from where all life originated.
Pink Himalayan Edible Salt is all NATURAL and PURE. It is the purest form of salt in the world today.
Our Himalayan pink salt is mined deep under the Himalayan mountains formed over 250 millions years at Khewra Salt Mine, the biggest therapeutic salt mine in the world.
Add pink Himalayan salt to your food helps balance high blood pressure or low blood pressure.
Pink Himalayan salt is loaded with over 84 trace elements for the body.
What About Table Salt?
Table salt or sodium chloride is extremely toxic. Some table salt contains aluminum hydroxide (a toxic metal and a known cause of Alzheimer’s). Regular table salt is usually iodized. Naturally occurring iodine is essential, but added iodine is considered a toxic metal.
What About Sea Salt?
The problem with sea salt is that many of the oceans waters are polluted with heavy metals like lead, cadmium, arsenic, mercury and more. Oil disasters and leaking tankers pollute our oceans even more. Today sea salt is not as good as it was in the past.
Himalayan Natural Salt Contains Electrolytes
Electrolytes such as sodium, calcium and potassium help restore your bodies’ fluids. Electrolytes are what your cells (especially nerve, heart and muscle) use to maintain voltages across cell membranes and to carry nerve impulses and muscle contractions across themselves and to other cells. Electrolytes have to be continually replaced whenever you sweat.
Animal Feed Salt
Animals also require salt to keep them healthy. The right salt intake ensures they grow well, and have strong immune and reproductive systems. Often agricultural animals and commercial livestock do not receive enough salt from foraging and other feeds and for that reason it is necessary to supplement their diet with salt. Interestingly tests show that animals have a natural finite appetite for salt meaning they eat only what they need.
Since animals will naturally eat salt, it can be often used as a carrier for other essential trace minerals that are also vital to health. These trace minerals are iron, copper, zinc, manganese, cobalt, iodine and selenium. Different levels of various minerals are added to salt for specific and different situations.
Whilst acute trace mineral deficiency is relatively easy to identify, a major issue for farmers is in spotting when animals are suffering from relatively small deficiencies. The Salt Institute in America summarises it as follows, “In this instance the farmer will probably not see specific symptoms that are characteristic of a trace mineral deficiency. Instead, the animal grows or reproduces at a reduced rate, uses feed less efficiently and operates with a depressed immune system. The end result is inefficient production and lower profitability.”
Salt is provided to animals in different ways but predominately as salt blocks which the animal licks, or loose salt that is mixed directly into the feed.
