Until recently, I was under the impression that salt was something to be avoided as much as possible. I presented it under the same category as Sugar , trans fats, and prolonged exposure to UV rays. In a word: bad. But while the white table salt to create a bad reputation for a reason, I was surprised to learn that natural unrefined salts such as Himalayan pink salt , have a very different mineral composition.
Himalayan pink salt is packed with more than 84 minerals and elements that make it very nutritious for the body. pink salt has many benefits to help detoxify the body to increase energy to improve digestion of promoting hair, skin and nails.
So how is it used? Of course you can use pink salt in any dish you would use regular salt, but goes beyond that too. To get a boost of energy free of caffeine, you can add a pinch of pink salt to your morning lemon water or shake every day (this Dark Chocolate Salty Maca Crunch smoothie is one of my favorites). To experience the benefits of pink Himalayan salt, it can also be done only salt water (pronounced so-lay ), which is water that has been fully saturated with natural salt to the point where it will not absorb never more. This is the salt form that is easier for the body to absorb.
According to the holistic nutritionist Kelly LeVeque , salt water pink makes a great sports drink: When we sweat and training lose minerals (or electrolytes), and the sole it is a great way to add back into the body with water. Himalayan pink salt is packed with over 84 minerals and elements instead of table salt is 97.5% sodium chloride. Excess sodium increases the risk of hypertension, osteoporosis and kidney disease, while the diversity of elements shown in pink Himalayan salt to create a balance of electrolytes in your body, strengthen bones, lower blood pressure and improve circulation. It also helps protect the delicate balance of minerals in your cells, prevent excess water retention, and prevent premature aging. Each cell requires a balance of potassium and sodium.
Here is how to make and use its unique salt water:
- fill a jug of approximately ¼ the way with pink salt .
- Add filtered water to the jar, leaving some space at the top in the case of having to add more salt later.
- Put a lid on the jar and shake gently. Leave it on overnight against time to dissolve the salt. The next day you should still see a little salt at the bottom of the jar that can not be absorbed by the water. This is how you know you have a real “unique” solution. (If you do not see any salt on the bottom, just add a couple of teaspoons more and let it sit for another day.)
- To use your sole, add up to 1 teaspoon salt water for another glass filtered water first thing every morning. To drink!
