One of the world’s most potent and powerful “hidden secrets” is nowadays the pink Himalayan salt! It is pulled from the world’s most beautiful (and highest) mountain range and has been prized for its healing and restorative powers ever since the ancient times.

In fact, it was so prized that people used it effectively as a currency system. Actually, its price was higher than its weight in gold thousands of years ago!

Nowadays, we are just starting to rediscover the truly transformative power of Himalayan salt, revealing the health benefits for the human body the ancients long understood.

Hopefully, you’ll be able to use the information below to decide as to whether or not you should be purchasing this excellent product of nature in the future.

What Exactly Is Himalayan Salt Anyways?

This salt is a natural and ridiculously pure mineral substance that is pink in color (thanks to iron oxide) and gathered from a giant mine in the Pakistani part of Himalayan Mountains.  People used it for thousands and thousands of years as a natural medicine and therapeutic cure.

The ancients understood just how powerful and potent this mineral truly was! There is a real reason why words about its power have spread for thousands of years.

Pay attention: There are almost too many significant benefits that your body will enjoy when you start to use the pink salt on a regular basis.

Though this list is nowhere near complete or comprehensive, it should provide you with a “foundational education” as to why it is so prized, sought after, and valuable as a natural remedy!

Benefit #1 – Provides Your Body with 84 Trace Minerals & Other Bio Compounds

As mentioned above, this product of nature is widely regarded as the cleanest, purest, and most “mineral-dense” salt available on the planet. Surprisingly, there are over eighty much-needed trace minerals, electrolytes, and other elements.

Here is a list of the five most concentrated elements (see complete table on TheMeadow.com):

  1. Chloride (Cl) – 590.93g / kg
  2. Sodium (Na) – 382.61g / kg
  3. Sulfur (S) – 12.4g / kg
  4. Calcium (Ca) – 4.05 g / kg
  5. Potassium (K) – 3.5 g / kg

Pay attention: The Himalayan salt includes even trace amounts of minerals that are toxic to your body in large quantities, such as radium, plutonium, uranium, thallium or lead.

Benefit #2 – Effective for Detox

Salt and water have always played a vital role in our bodies, and they continue to play it on a daily basis for each and every one of us. Although water is of the utmost importance to detoxify the human body, it is the salt that is the “vehicle”.

It allows your body to transfer toxins from healthy cells to your bloodstream. From there, you can push them out of your systems.

Keep in mind: The Himalayan salt is an active detoxification carrier that has been proven to be much more efficient than traditional white versions in this process!

Benefit #3 – Lowers Your Blood Pressure

This statement may sound like a mistake because Himalayan salt contains sodium (Na) that is responsible for fluid retention and rising of one´s blood pressure. However, it contains smaller amounts of this substance than regular table salt.

In addition, the pink version includes small amounts of potassium (K) that human body can use for lowering blood pressure. Because Himalayan salt is absorbed into your bloodstream much more efficiently than regular table salt, it can be used in small doses to help modulate your blood pressure much more efficiently.

Pay attention: If you replace you regular table salt for its pink version, you should see a slow, gradual decrease in your blood pressure. Obviously, you need to maintain a healthy lifestyle and stay within the recommended maximum daily intake of 1500mg of sodium!

Benefit #4 – Boosts Energy & Relaxes Your Body

If you have started to feel a little bit foggy or fatigued, the odds are stacked against you that you are dealing with a loss of electrolytes and salt in your body. Luckily, you can restore and replenish your organism in a hurry with the pink Himalayan minerals.

Pay attention: Thanks to its unique composition and ability to be absorbed into the bloodstream more quickly than traditional table salts, you can immediately reap its benefits.

Benefit #5 – Banishes Sinus Issues & Respiratory Conditions

When mixed with hot water and dissolved, this salt can clear up sinus issues and improve any respiratory condition you may be dealing with (including asthma). All you have to do is to:

  1. Bring 1 gallon of water to boil in a pot.
  2. Remove your pot from a stove and place it on a pot holder on your table.
  3. Dissolve 1/2 cup of Himalayan salt in it through stirring.
  4. Lean your face over the pot but keep the distance of around 12 inches to avoid burning your face with steam.
  5. Cover your head with a towel to form a tent that will trap hot steam with salt particles in it.
  6. Breathe as you would normally (for 5 to 10 minutes) and make a slow deep breath in and out once every minute.

Pay attention: Because these pink crystals emit negative ions, you’ll be able to attack your sinus issues with a full force without ever compromising your respiratory (or any other) system.

Benefit #6 – Improves Your Sleep

When your mind is at ease, and your muscles are relaxed, your sleep is going to become healthier and more regular. By switching to pink salt, you will improve the condition of both your body and your mind thanks to various trace minerals such as potassium or magnesium.

All you have to do is to follow these steps:

  1. Mix five teaspoons of raw organic honey with one teaspoon of pink salt and place it in a glass jar.
  2. Before going to bed, all you need is to dissolve one teaspoon of this mixture under your tongue.

Pay attention: Not only that, but you will also give yourself every substance you will need to replenish and restore your energy levels overnight during your sleep.

Benefit #7 – Balancing Out Your Body’s Acidity & Alkaline Levels

If you are looking to promote a true balance between your acid and alkaline levels in your organism, preparing a pink salt bath is the way to go. All you have to do is to follow these simple steps:

  1. Fill your bathtub with hot water (beware not to burn your skin).
  2. Put and dissolve around 1 and a 1/2 pounds of this salt into it.
  3. Optionally, you can add around 2 cups of Epsom salt as well.
  4. Submerge as much of your body as possible and soak for at least 20-30 minutes.
  5. While taking this bath, sip slowly one glass of water to promote sweating and detox.

Keep in mind: This should do the trick. The ancients used this approach to detoxify themselves on an almost weekly basis, and now you can too.

Benefit #8 – Promotes Health of Your Arteries


Last but not least, this salt can help you to eliminate all damage done to your arteries that could potentially lead to the creation of varicose or “spider” veins. It is tremendously effective at clearing up your arteries.

Pay attention: Except that, this product of nature is great for improving blood circulation across your whole body – which will eliminate the possibility of varicose veins from ever popping up in the first place.

Final Verdict: Must Have Product of Nature

There is a tremendous amount of people that could benefit from replacing their daily supply of refined table salt by its much better pink version. Because of its unique composition, it’s able to provide you with some significant health advantages.

Those who are smart and savvy about all-natural remedies rant and rave about Himalayan pink salt (and for good reason). It’s relatively inexpensive today, and getting yours will be one of the best decisions you end up making.

  1. Bullshit, stop your lying. The trace elements have no significance at all. The salt just tastes better to me, that’s why I use it…..and the fact it was formed millions of years ago.

  2. Himalayan Salt contains the same 83+ traces of minerals and elements that are found in the human body. Many people now suggest that Himalayan Pink Salt is the purest salt that can be found on earth and has a much lower sodium intake per serving that regular table salt.

  3. Pink salt is sold in bulk at Sprouts market. You can buy a lot or as little as you like. It is not especially expensive sold by the pound. I think it is about 4 to 5 dollars. Good luck.

  4. I just used the salt mix with warm water and lemon to clear perotoncillar abcess ( puss build up in my tonsils). I’ve been dealing with this for the past 4 days. Doctors gave me antibiotics and told me they have to drained the abcess through a procedure but have to wait for a few days to see if the antibiotics make it go away. I couldn’t eat or talk, it was really painful. I was told to do a home remedy since the antibiotics were not helping and the swollen tonsil was getting bigger and painful. I gargled almost a whole cup of warm water, himalayan pink salt and lemon. I couldnt believe how fast this was working. All this yucky green stuff started coming out of my throat. The mixture had some way some how made a punture right where abcess was and the swollen toncil drained on its own, well with the help of the mixture I gargled. I noticed the soreness was going away, I’m able to talk clearly and my ear pressure disappeared. Coincidence? Idk, but it worked like magic. Just my experience.

  5. I bought My pink salt in Alexander, Joburg, South Africa…and I was told to take it with a glass of water early morning and must be thé first thing I take everyday…its not as salty as sea salt

  6. Pink Salt sounds good. I will have to check out my local area to see who sells it. Knowing my luck it will be extremely expensive though.
    I wouldn’t mind a luxurious bath in it as I know that can be beneficial. Great read!

    • One can find the salt in Indian or Asian shops. The salt is widely used as a food additive in almost all houses of India.

  7. I love pink salt! We have been using it for a few months now…u can use it just like regular salt in any dish. Just got done eating eggs sprinkled with a little pink salt…Delish!

  8. INCREDIBLE!!! Just heard about from friends struggling w/Lyme Disease, like myself. Excellent article! BUYING PINK HIMALAYAN SALT for the family! Thank you! Sunny Blessings Y’all~

  9. Pink Himalayan salt is the way to go! You can store this salt in a dark place and it will last for many, many years. Its also good when you are craving a salty dish. I cut up organic potatoes and put a bit of olive oil and pink himalayan salt and stick it the oven for about 35 minutes. So good:)

  10. I have been using Pink Himalayan Salt for quite some time now. I used to use sea salt until I read that virtually all salt is sea salt because it all came from the sea at one time or another in the Earth’s history.

    The term “sea salt” is just a way for people to buy it. White processed salt can still be called “sea salt” even though it is devoid of full-spectrum sea minerals, which sucks:(

  11. Pink Himalayan salt is so amazing, here in Costa Rica, we use it in many drinks. It gives it a wonderful taste. This mineral was formed over 250 million years ago. It is truly a blessing, with over 84 minerals. Thanks for sharing this, I hope more people will switch to the PINK!

  12. Wow the good old ancient days, when people valued things that made their bodies healthier and stronger and not precious metals.

  13. I bought my first bottle of Pink Himalayan salt from Bj’s last month. Here is what I have noticed, it is not as salty as Sea Salt at all, but it still tastes really good.

  14. All of that from some pink salt?! That’s amazing and I am headed out to the market to buy some now. One question, does it taste more earthy than regular salt?
