Benefitting from a Himalayan Salt Grinder

12 Apr 2018

Recently, Himalayan salt has been in the news for its many health benefits, but note that it has actually been used throughout the world for hundreds of years for a myriad of purposes. One of the most common Himalayan salt applications has been its use as a natural antiseptic.

Along with providing antibacterial benefits, salt from the Himalayan Mountains is also used for culinary purposes. One use is as a seasoning, where the salt is used is to enhance the flavor of meats, seafood, and vegetables. In fact, you can simply sprinkle Himalayan salt on anything you would like to add flavor to. It is to be used just as regular salt, but it has a much more palatable, mild flavor. 

One of the reasons that pink Himalayan salt is such a healthy alternative is that it contains a special combination of 84 trace minerals. These minerals are contained in the salt because it is harvested from deep within the Himalayan Mountains, where it is protected from many of the pollutants that you might find in other salts. As a result, this salt only requires minimal processing and is hand-harvested so that it is as pure as possible. By retaining almost all of its natural nutrients, Himalayan salt is significantly different from most of the table salts that are commonly used today. Most over-processed table salts contain significant amounts of sugar, and even chemicals. Not only can the inferior salts be difficult on the digestive system, they can also result in inflammation.

With its cleaner makeup and natural antiseptic properties, Himalayan salt can work to reduce pain and rather than leading to high blood pressure, like most table salts, Himalayan salt can work to stabilize your blood pressure.

While it can sometimes be difficult to achieve just the right amount of seasoning when working with loose salt, using a salt grinder offers convenience for a proper application. When using our Himalayan salt in a grinder, be sure to use the Coarse Grind Himalayan Salt. Once you try our Himalayan salt, you will never want to go back to regular table salt again.
