BIG Hydration Series - 7. Himalayan Pink Salt
Sourced from the foothills of the Himalayas, Himalayan Pink Salt is a valuable source of 84 trace minerals which give it its famous pinkish hue.
These trace minerals also give it the ability to hydrate your body intensely. Many of us are dehydrated without even realizing it and this has ramifications for our overall health and well-being. Sometimes, despite drinking water, we are not able to hydrate our bodies properly. This manifests in conditions like water retention with swollen hands and feet.
This is where Himalayan salt comes into the picture. Chockfull of essential electrolytes, it not only provides your body with the much needed nutritional boost of these minerals, it also helps ensure that your body is properly hydrated by boosting the absorption of these electrolytes into the cells of the body. This can be a game changer if you are dehydrated and drinking water to just expel it out instead of absorbing it deeply into your cells and tissues.
Rich in sodium, Himalayan salt also helps the body maintain various functions including muscular function, nervous system, and maintaining blood pressure. It also helps balance the pH of the body as well as maintains blood sugar levels. Himalayan salt also works to balance hormonal health by supporting the thyroid and adrenal glands which can eventually also help assist in weight loss.
Its ability to deeply hydrate the body also translates into improving the health of your skin by reducing dryness, premature signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles, and also reduces inflammatory skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. It is also rich in zinc with helps reduce acne and breakouts. The sulfur content works to strengthen hair and nails as well.
In addition to this, Himalayan salt also improves digestion. It works by activating the salivary glands which can work more efficiently at breaking down food and hence improving absorption of nutrients. It also stimulates hydrochloric acid and enzymes that boost the metabolism of proteins which further assist in breaking down food. This all aids in ensuring the most efficient absorption of nutrition and a sound digestive function.
A regular part of Ayurvedic medicine, it is recommended that this salt be used to make sole water which is basically just salt left overnight in water to become completely saturated ensuring that the water has absorbed all the nutritional content of the salt. Whether by this means or just by adding a pinch of it to your regular drinking water, Himalayan salt is a wonderful addition to your daily hydration.
