Himalayan Pink Sea Salt is an excellent source of sodium. But wait a minute! When did the Himalayan Mountains move to the sea?
Actually the sea moved away from the mountains, approximately 250 million years ago they were under water. This is fantastic for us because as the ocean salt water settled into caves and lava tubes, it created a pure, unprocessed and unrefined rock salt.
This rock salt is mined by hand from the salt caves then stone ground. This pink salt provides us with a full complement of minerals and trace elements that are essential for life just as Mother Nature intended.
And it does all of this without contamination from environmental pollutants. I think this is pretty amazing!
Celtic Sea Salt
is sourced from the Northwest coast of France and harvested once the sun has evaporated the seawater from the pristine, clean clay ponds near the shoreline. The salt is collected by hand using 2,000 year old traditional Celtic methods.
This salt is light gray in color and has a 'moist' texture. It is unprocessed and unrefined, allowing it to maintain all of the health benefits.
Celtic Sea Salt also contains a full complement of minerals and trace elements our bodies require.
Both of these salts are easily found in most grocery stores or you can find them online.
The best way to avoid unhealthy salts is to avoid packaged and processed foods, read the ingredient label when you do purchase these foods.
I can't stress this enough READ THE INGREDIENT LABEL on all packaged and processed foods, not just the nutrition facts.
Eating whole foods, cooking from scratch and maintaining control of your ingredients is the best defense.
