Himalayan Mineral Salts


This delicious and nutritious salt supports your organs function by providing trace minerals that are essential for a healthy life and necessary for proper and safe absorption of sodium.


Sodium is one of the main ALKALINE elements our body needs to stay healthy and this salt has over 80 trace minerals (including sodium). It’s known to replenish your electrolytes and helps balance your pH levels, helping you stay active and energized. Table salt doesn’t contain the minerals necessary to process sodium properly, so they are pulled, in trace amounts, from your bones and organs. However, the minerals in Himalyan Salt helps your body process sodium safely while supporting the health of your bones and organs.


Sodium is an electrolyte responsible for many critical biological processes, including regulating the amount of water that’s in and around your cells, so if your blood becomes too low in sodium, your body’s fluid levels rise and your cells begin to swell. This swelling can cause a number of health problems, from mild to severe. (taken from this fabulous article on http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/09/20/salt-myth.aspx)


If you’re going to soak in a tub full of salt, knowing it will pass through your skin and into your body, don’t -you think it should be a food grade salt?  We thought so too!  Make sole and enjoy a great detox bath! You can also use sole for a foot soak, to gargle for a sore throat, or use as a mouth rinse after brushing. The traditional use of Sole is to drink 1 tsp everyday for improved health.


As much as I love the taste of salt, drinking Sole isn’t something I like – way too salty!  Also, I have had several hygienist agree that using this mineral salt as a mouth wash is especially helpful for our teeth, however, there is some concern among others that it may damage teeth. Please decide for yourself and use your own discernment.
