Of the 84 elements found in the human body, 72 are believed to be essential ingredients of a healthy diet. Himalayan Pink Salt contains these 72 elements, some of which are only needed in minute doses, as well as other elements whose importance for the human body is yet to be determined.
• Sodium: despite the bad press, sodium is indispensable for life;
• Magnesium: vital for heart function, muscles and digestive system. Insufficient magnesium puts the body in a stress response state;
• Potassium: alkalizes the interior of our cells. Potassium deficiency is a cause to heart disease, chronic fatigue syndrome and sleep disorders;
• Calcium: builds our bones and cartilage and relaxes muscles;
• Boron: essential for the use of calcium and magnesium in the body;
• Zinc: critical to enzyme function and hormone balance in the body;
• Manganese: linked to poor growth, impaired reproduction, balance problems;
• Copper: an important part of immune cells, numerous enzymes and necessary for proper iron absorption;
• Iron: vital part of our red blood cells, necessary for oxygen transport;
• Selenium: protects cell membranes from free radical damage;
• Chromium: is the substance that is necessary for insulin to carry out its function of stabilizing blood sugar levels.
Salt is unquestionably essential for healthy life, so the quality of the salt we use determines the nature and amount of health we will experience in our own lives.
