Are you one of those people who experience salt cravings? Before I started adding Himalayan Sea Salt to my water, I used to crave anything with salt. My worst offenders were pretzels and chips. Neither of which are appropriate to consume with my autoimmune issues. I’ve been amazed with how my cravings subsided, after adding sea salt to 1-2 glasses of my water each day.
What is Himalayan Sea Salt?
Himalayan salt comes from salt mines below the Himalayan Mountain Range. It contains 84 minerals and trace elements, including potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron and copper. It’s one of the purest salts out there and is much better than the heavily processed table salt you commonly find in the stores.
Benefits of Himalayan Sea Salt:
- Promotes healthy pH
- Inhibits muscle cramping
- Promotes vascular health
- Aides in detoxing the body
- Helps control water levels in the body
- Soothes Soreness
- Improves respiratory problems (Check out “Himalayan Salt Cave”).
How I use it:
I have a salt grinder, so I grind it 3-4 times into my first glass of water. After I workout, I add it again to a glass of water. It should be noted, that I do not use it in every glass of water. I do add it to many of salads and cooked veggies.
Do you sweat a ton?
I find that it’s most important to add Pink Himalayan Sea Salt to your water if you’re working outside in the heat, are sweating hard at the gym, or using a sauna. When I first started using the infrared sauna, I would feel somewhat lightheaded afterwards. One of the ladies from the sauna suggested adding Pink Himalayan Sea Salt to my water, and wouldn’t you know…. It worked! I no longer feel light headed after using the sauna.
Where to buy it:
Most stores sell it these days, but you can also find it online at Amazon or Vitacacost.com.

Other Ways To Use It:
It’s still salt. Just because it’s healthy for you, doesn’t mean you should go crazy over it. Use it in moderation.
