A health tip for you

Do you know what this is?

It's pink Himalayan salt.  We've added this to our diet and here's why:

Himalayan salt differs from regular table salt in that it is unrefined, and therefore contains all naturally occurring minerals. The removal of these minerals, such as calcium and magnesium, increases the amount of sodium found in table salt, which is often connected to high blood pressure. Himalayan salt, on the other hand, can balance electrolytes, is anti-inflammatory, and can help with detoxification. 

Himalayan salt produces negative ions because it comes from an environment rich in dry iron. This kind of environment is able to kill the harmful bacteria and microbes that are found in other salts. Himalayan salt is beneficial to patients who suffer from chronic illness of the bronchial system or allergies.

Because Himalayan salt is not chemically refined, it is completely pure. It contains all of its original natural minerals. Replacing ordinary table salt with Himalayan salt can reduce edema in the body tissue, as well as reduce the formation of cellulite.

Himalayan salt contains at least 84 minerals and trace elements, many of which are beneficial for human consumption:
Calcium, which is important for the development and protection of bones and teeth, is found in this salt.
Chromium is also in Himalayan salt. It aids in metabolizing and regulating blood glucose.
Cobalt, which helps produce red blood cells, is also abundant in Himalayan salt.
Iron, another important mineral that is necessary for cell formation, is a key element in this particular salt.
Some of the other beneficial minerals that are found in Himalayan salt include magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, zinc, sulfur and molybdenum.

Have I convinced you to give it a try?
