Amazing Health Benefits of Pink Himalayan Sea Salt

himalayan-pink-salt

I just completed my 60 day challenge of Bikram Yoga.  What a body and life transforming experience.  Just the very discipline it takes to get oneself to the studio everyday is challenging enough but to then complete  one and a half hours of Hatha yoga poses in a hot and humid room and to do this 60 days in a row takes an incredible amount of determination and commitment.  This was my first 60 day challenge and I finished it!  The most significant difference I find is in how much easier everything else becomes because the body is performing so optimally after that experience.  I now go to the studio 3 to 4 times a week and the 90 minutes just fly by.

The main lessons I learnt are:

  1.  Breathing-  slow, even flow of breath throughout the 90 mins makes the class much, much easier.
  2. Staying still between postures-  This is still a challenge!  I end up adjusting my clothing or the mat or scratching an itch etc.  But economy of movement allows the body to conserve energy.
  3. Letting the perspiration flow-  there is extreme temptation to wipe the sweat off with a towel or hands  but what this does is prevent the natural cooling system from working.
  4. Staying hydrated and this is where the wonderful Himalayan Pink Salt comes into play.
  5. Totally relaxing in the Shavasana or the dead-body pose.  This is another challenge for most people.  This is very important because the contrast between the active use of the muscles and organs and the total relaxation of them is what allows for fresh oxygenated blood throughout the body.

Why is Pink Himalayan Sea Salt So Amazing?

About 200 million years ago, there were crystallized sea salt beds that were covered with lava. Because this salt was subsequently enveloped in snow and ice for millennia, it was protected from modern day pollution and preserved in an untouched, pristine environment.

The Himalayan mountain range goes across Asia, and passes through China, Nepal, Myanmar, Pakistan, Bhutan, Afghanistan, and India. Many people believe that this pink salt is the purest salt that can be found on the planet.

Minerals & Energy

Himalayan Salt contains the same 84 trace minerals and elements that are found in the human body; that alone is quite impressive! A few of these minerals include: sodium chloride, sulphate, calcium, potassium, and magnesium. When consuming this salt, you are actually getting less sodium intake per serving than regular table salt because it is less refined and the pieces are larger. Therefore Himalayan salt has less sodium per serving because the crystals or flakes take up less room than the highly processed table salt variety.

Another great thing about this salt is that, because of its unique cellular structure, it stores vibrational energy. The minerals in this salt exist in colloidal form, which means that they are small enough for our cells to easily absorb.
