Himalayan Crystal Salt vs Table Salt
- Table salt consists of sodium, chloride and additives and has nothing to do with real, natural, holistic salt.
- Table salt is a dangerous cellular poison that the body eliminates or stores with an immense energy and effort.
- Natural salt is crucial for maintaining vital body functions.
- Crystal salt contains all the minerals and trace elements of which the body is made of.
Common table salt is referred to as inorganic sodium chloride. It
can't maintain water balance in the body as well as sea salts.
Common table salt crystals are hard, dry, and isolated from each other.
Your body has difficulty processing this. Water molecules surround
salt crystals and try to dissolve them. This separates them into sodium
and chloride ions. These large, hard crystals are difficult to
solubilize. The salt is also present in excess amount due to its large
crystal size. All of this contributes to water being pulled out of your
cells causing cell dehydration.
Sea salts are in colloidal form, easily dissolve and absorb in the
body, and they contain all salts known to exist not just sodium
Taking in too much salt and the wrong kind of salt has a number of
consequences. Consider taking in one serving of table salt (1 tsp,
Your body uses 23 times that amount of cell water to dissolve the salt.
Think about having 3 meals a day plus salty snacks compounded daily.
Many people are taking in somewhere between 4 to 6 grams a day.
Excessive salt contributes to the formation of cellulite, arthritis,
gout, hypertension, kidney and bladder stones.
Common table salt contains sodium chloride, calcium silicate, dextrose, and potassium iodide.
Calcium silicate is used as an anti-caking agent. This keeps the salt
flowing in humid conditions but if there's too much moisture in the air
it will clump. Dextrose is used to stabilize the iodide.
Potassium iodide happens to be one of two forms of iodine that the FDA
allows in table salt. Animal feed is generally fortified with potassium
iodate. This is also true of food salt outside the U.S. because of its
stability. The U.S. doesn't allow potassium iodate in food salt for
some reason. Being unstable, potassium iodide is easily oxidized to
iodine and lost by volatilization (evaporation) from the salt. Dextrose
is added to prevent iodide from being oxidized and escaping as a
Iodine is added to the salt to prevent goiter. The thyroid requires
iodine to make the hormone thyroxine. Deficiency in iodine causes the
thyroid to enlarge in the neck. Goiter symptoms may include neck
tenderness, pressure on the windpipe and esophagus accompanied with
shortness of breath and choking, coughing, and hoarseness. See the

Himalayan salt's colloidal nature allows each salt molecule to be
inter-connected through molecular vibrations. This salt is said to be
the purest salt available essentially uncontaminated with any toxins or
Quite often this salt has been hand mined and washed in an environment
that is pristine. Himalayan salt is over 250 million years old that has
been exposed to high tectonic pressure surrounded by ice and snow high
in the mountains.
When observed under a microscope, this salt has a perfect crystalline structure.
It is believed to be of the highest grade. This salt has an unlimited
shelf life and doesn't require any pouring agents.The renowned Frezenius
Institute in Europe analyzed the Himalayan Crystal Salt. The research
analysis confirmed the holistic properties of the original Himalayan
crystal salt. The sodium chloride content is
97.41% and meets the worldwide necessary standards for table salt.
Some sea salts are referred to as organic salts. Clearly, salt is a
mineral and not a plant/animal so it can't be organic. Nevertheless,
there are sea salts that are certified as organic salts.
This means that the salt has been collected from protected,
pollution-free environments, and unrefined. For that reason, the pink
Himalayan salt is
called an organic salt.
