Himalayan Crystal Salt is a superior form of salt containing the most easily assimilated forms of minerals and trace elements required by the body. It is created when the sun dries sea water and the earth’s pressure over the millenia turns it into large crystals. The higher the pressure, the more perfect the crystalline structure. Mined from deep within the earth, it has never been exposed to pollution. Himalayan Crystal Salt, with its wealth of minerals and trace elements, has been valued through the ages for its health benefits. Our common cooking salt does not contain the vital elements that make crystal salt from the huge Salt Range about 200 km from the foot of the Himalayas so precious.Common cooking salt lacks most of the minerals and trace elements needed for optimal body function. Now it’s easy to use the real thing!
