29 May Benefits of Himalayan Salt
If you’re looking for a healthy alternative to standard table salt try opting for Himalayan Salt. With all of its amazing benefits, we aren’t surprised it’s often referred to as a superfood. Here are a few reasons why it’s amazing:
Himalayan Salt is Clean
Himalayan salt is said to be over 99% pure. Unlike table salt and even rock salt, most Himalayan Salt isn’t processed, stripped or bleached. In its natural form, Himalayan Salt contains 84 good-for-you trace minerals.
It Lowers Blood Pressure
Although Himalayan Salt also contains the same sodium found in table salt (a mineral responsible for raising blood pressure), Himalayan salt contains significantly less and is also full of potassium which the body can use to lower blood pressure.
If you are struggling with your blood pressure, and can’t stay away from salty and savory foods, try swapping out your table salt.
It Improves Digestion
Himalayan salt lamps can be used as ambient air purifiers. The lamps suck moisture out of the air and onto the surface of the lamp where the evaporation process occurs. This creates negative ions which are said to combat the positive ions produced by pollen, dust, dirt and other pollutants.
Unbalanced ph levels can lead to all sorts of health issues and can actually create a constant feeling of illness. Whether your body is too alkaline, or too acidic, Himalayan salt can help rid the body of acidic toxins and balance your body’s ph level.

Elevate Mood & Detox
Improved mood, sleep and feeling less stressed are all linked to Himalayan Salt Lamps. This again has to do with the negative ions being released into the air. You can also try adding the salt to your bath to help absorb the everyday toxins we are exposed to.
