A brief history

Himalayan pink salt consists of pink crystals 2–3 centimeters in size, and it is 100% natural, with a rich taste. It contains over 80 types of minerals and trace elements vital for life and good health. It is ideal for salt therapy.

Himalayan pink salt is an extremely pure crystalline salt that is pink in color, formed from sea salt deposits over 250 million years ago during the Jurassic period.

As time went by, the Earth’s crust was subject to geological processes, which gave rise to the continents.
India was once a separate continent, which slowly moved towards Eurasia but hadn’t yet joined it. The Himalayas formed where they met. The salt from the ocean that once divided the continents gradually settled on the newly formed mountains at a plateau 3000 meters high. Volcanic processes continued, and the salt gradually mixed with magma, which gave the salt its pink color and its unique chemical composition. Himalayan pink salt is quite different from other kinds of salt in taste.

Since ancient times Himalayan pink salt has been highly valued by physicians and traditional healers for its excellent healing properties. Even Alexander the Great ordered that it be carried back on elephants along the Indian ridge for his royal family and the aristocrats of that time. The ancient Indian art of medicine, ayurveda, called this salt black (kala namak in Sanskrit) as in its bulk rock form it has a black, slightly reddish color.

Himalayan pink salt: properties and composition

The chemical composition of Himalayan salt is simply stunning. It contains in microdoses almost the entire periodic table. This speaks to the presence of powerful energetic processes in the crystalline structure of the salt. According to various authorities, it contains between 82 and 92 minerals and macro- and micronutrients, to which it owes its unique properties and healing qualities.
Himalayan salt takes its pink color from the presence of iron oxide. Himalayan salt contains minerals which are vital for your health, including macronutrients and trace elements (micronutrients). Macronutrients are needed by the body in relatively large amounts and include calcium, chloride, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and sodium. The recommended daily amount of these macronutrients depends on your age, level of activity, and general state of health. Calcium is the most common mineral in the body and can be found in the bones and teeth, though it also plays a vital role in the nervous system and in muscle performance. Micronutrients are needed in small amounts. The trace elements found in Himalayan salt include boron, chromium, copper, fluorine, iodine, manganese, molybdenum, selenium, and zinc. Other minerals found in Himalayan salt include aluminum, carbon, platinum, sulfur, and titanium.
