We all hear how we need to cut back on salt. Ordinary table salt has been stripped of its companion elements and contains additives. In studies table salts have been linked to hypertension and other heart or blood illnesses. Table salt also gives many people the feeling of being bloated. Well there is a salt called Himalayan Pink Salt. It is a pure, hand-mined salt found naturally deep inside the Himalayan Mountains. It contains over 80 mineral elements that the body needs and has nutrients and minerals that help your body preserve the blood cells. Himalayan Pink Salt is a healthier replacement for ordinary table salt and you can find it at most grocery stores for under $4.
