Now that you know how to use Himalayan Sea Salt to avoid sleep deprivation, we want to share some other AMAZING health benefits of switching from synthetic table salt to this nutrient rich natural pink salt, Himalayan Sea Salt.
I am sure by now that you are well aware of the dangers and health risks associated with table salt. But did you know that natural pink sea salt is healthy and has a host of beneficial minerals and nutrients that are good for you? We no longer use table salt in my house for anything but cleaning out sink and tub drains! That’s all table salt is actually good for.
So what can you expect if you make the switch from table salt to himalayan sea salt? Read below about 10 of the health benefits as reported in an article from e-health 101:
Better Food Absorption
When your body’s mineral content is properly balanced, your body will be better able to actually absorb the vitamins and other nutrients in the foods you’re eating. Does that mean that you’re currently not getting any nutrition from the foods you’re eating now (provided that you know you’re not getting enough salt)? No, it just means that switching to Himalayan salt will help you absorb them better.
I’ll explain in just a little while exactly how it works, but you can bet your bottom dollar that the trace mineral concentration in addition to the negatively charged ions will help rid your cells of toxins. Cleaner cells means feeling better on a whole – What a perfect way to start out the New Year if you ask me!
Regulated Blood Pressure
It’s no secret that (nutrient lacking) table salt can actually raise your blood pressure, which is why so many people tend to stay away from it. However, real salt can actually help to regulate your blood pressure (which is incredibly good news for anyone that finds themselves taking an abundance of medication to keep theirs in check). On a related note, it can help your heart health as a whole – The negative ions can help to regulate an irregular heartbeat.
If you’re looking for a way to balance out your pH levels, Himalayan salt is a great place to start because of its alkalizing effects (baking soda can help you out here as well, but that’s a post for another day).
Asthma, Allergy, And Sinus Relief
Have you ever been at your local health food store and seen a salt inhaler? You may have wondered what exactly the vase-looking contraption was actually used for. It’s actually used to help relieve congestion from mucous and phlegm.
Better Hormone Health And Stability
If you’ve been trying to conceive a baby but haven’t been having any luck so far, making the switch to real salt could be your solution! Since Himalayan (and other natural) salt is supports natural hormone function, it can actually help improve the reproductive health of both men and women. It also help support a healthy libido (which in itself can help get you in the mood for conceiving).
Better Bone Health
Your bones hold more than ¼ of your body’s salt content. When sodium and other trace minerals aren’t high enough in your body, it will pull the salt from your bones in order to make up for it. This can eventually cause osteoporosis. Ensuring that you get that salt you need can help your body keep those trace minerals where they need to be, and can definitely help prevent bone problems down the road.
We all know that drinking water is important (and is one of my personal favourite things to do), but simply getting water isn’t enough. The trace minerals found in real salt can help your body regulate; ensuring that your body has the water content it needs, but also that it has the trace minerals it requires to function properly. It’s kind of like getting an IV at the hospital, except without the horrible needle part.
Better Digestive Health
When it’s consumed with water, real salt can actually help increase your stomach acid and in turn help to optimize your digestive health as a whole. This can help resolve a ton of digestive issues such as heartburn, gas, constipation, bloat and more. Not sure if you have low stomach acid? Read this article that we posted back in August of last year to find out more.
Better Oral Health
You’ve probably heard before that swishing with salt water can help to draw out any infection that might be in your mouth, but did you know that swishing real salt water around your mouth daily can actually help to improve your oral health and can even help to remineralize your teeth? Well if you didn’t, you do now; so get swishing!
