Pink Sea Salt is one of my favorite things to introduce people to. Not only is it pretty, it’s packed with 80+ minerals and elements necessary for our health. Its pink hues are a result of its iron rich content. (Iodized table salt is a processed food that is stripped of its natural elements, then, through a chemical process, has iodine added back in).
What do the 80+ minerals and elements present in Pink Sea Salt mined from the Himalayan Mountains have? Here are just a few benefits:
Creates an electrolyte balance
Balances pH (alkaline/acidity) and help to reduce acid reflux
Prevents muscle cramping
Aids in proper metabolism functioning
Lowers blood pressure
Helps the intestines absorb nutrients (fresh cracked pepper assists with this also)
Dissolves and eliminates sediment to remove toxins
Reduces the signs of aging
Salt has gotten a bad rap over the last few years. If you are eating ‘good’ or ‘real’ salt in moderation it actually helps the full spectrum of your health.
Pink salt has a great mild flavor. It helps bring out the flavors and nuances in your food rather than covering it up. Also, by eating real salt, rather than iodized table salt, your salt cravings actually go down because you are satiating your need for real minerals. Give it a try. Sprinkle it on eggs, veggies, fruits, lean meats, use it in your cooking in place of other salts and even top your popcorn. Pink salt also helps your body absorb and utilize the water you drink to actually hydrate you. It's packed with electrolytes.
I put mine in a pepper grinder to cook and season with. Once you go pink you really never go back! You can order a grinder of pink salt on Amazon.com, Costco, Thrive.com, Whole Foods and Trader Joe's carry them for sure but ask your local grocer, you'll be surprised what you find these days at your 'regular' stores.
