Himalayan Sea Salt Health Benefits

by Tonia Farmer, MD 08 Jul 2018 0 Comments

Himalayan Sea Salt (HSS) has quickly become the “most popular” salt but Salt Me! loves it for it’s proven therapeutic properties. There are not many US-based studies out there that focus on the health benefit claims of HSS but I have spent hours reviewing European-based clinical studies. These studies absolutely support it’s health benefits. Plus, I have personally benefitted from it's use. Simply put, I think it works particularly for respiratory and dermatological disorders! Let’s look at some important things about HSS to consider and why I know Salt Me! products are going to benefit you.


What is Himalayan Sea Salt?

Himalayan Sea Salt is a naturally occurring, unrefined salt that contains up to 84 minerals and elements that help our body to function. HSS is thought to have been formed millions of years ago and is primarily harvested from six salt mines in Pakistan. In fact, these mines are actually hundreds of miles away from the Himalayans. The largest mine, Khewra, is said to hold almost 7 billion tons and harvests about 400,000 tons of salt per year making HSS a reasonably sustainable resource.


Why is Himalayan Sea Salt Healthier?

Himalayan Sea Salt is thought to be healthier because it is not a processed salt like common table salt. Table salt can have additives that help prevent clumping, can be bleached and do not contain the same amount of minerals as HSS. Also, iodine is added to table salt and naturally occurring HSS can have less iodine content. While iodine in our diet is important for thyroid health, other foods in our diet and supplements contain the necessary iodine we need.

In general, both HSS and table salt have the same amount of sodium. But some high-quality, unrefined HSS can have less. Less sodium content is thought to be better because of the well-known relationship between high sodium intact and hypertension.

Remember, both HSS and table salt are harvested from nature- Mother Earth. But, the bottom line is that HSS is thought to be healthier because it is unprocessed and unrefined, thus maintaining it’s more natural form. Most believe that our bodies are better prepared to process this whole, real and unprocessed form of salt.
