Himalayan salt, which is also referred to as rock salt or pink salt, is said to be the most beneficial and cleanest salt on the planet. It contains all therapeutic and nutritional properties.

It is thought that the Himalayan salt is composed of dried remnants of the primal salt. It comes from the salt mines below the Himalayan Mountain Range. As the salt has been under great pressure over millions of years, it is thought to be 99 % pure. Chemically, Himalayan salt is sodium chloride, which is of utter importance for animal and human health.

Pink Himalayan salt is a healthier choice than table salt. Namely, the table salt is heavily processed, which means that all its minerals are eliminated. Most table salts usually contain only sodium, some iodine and some hazardous agents, such as yellow prussiate of soda. In addition, they contain aluminum derivates and other toxic components that are harmful to the human health.

On the other hand, Himalayan salt contains over 80 essential minerals, including potassium, magnesium, strontium, copper, iron, fluoride, sulfate, bromide, bicarbonate, borate and other healthy nutrients.
