Forget everything you’ve heard about salt being bad for you. That is a misunderstanding.
Salt is one of the most essential elements you need for your health and wellbeing.
What is bad for you is the salt we are accustomed to, which is white table salt. Unfortunately, this is in everything. Another reason to ditch processed foods and eat a natural whole food diet.
White table salt, sodium chloride is refined and processed largely for the purpose of industry. In fact, 97% of salt production goes to industry. It only contains 2 elements (sodium and chloride) but also contains chemical anti-caking agents.
However, there is a salt that is absolutely good for you and that is Himalayan Pink Salt.
While you are here, make sure you grab a copy of my Himalayan Pink Salt Recipes from my Resource Library.
Why Himalayan Pink Salt is so Special
- It is the most natural, unadulterated, mineral-rich, source of salt.
- It comes from a region in the Himalayan Mountains where it was covered by lava and ice for thousands of years and thus protected from being contaminated by pollutants.
- It contains 84 trace minerals that our body needs in the combination and ratio that is naturally in our body and our blood.
