Reasons You Should Be Using Himalayan Pink Salt

It's Good for You

Have you heard the hype about Himalayan pink salt? Here's the scoop. Himalayan salt is an unrefined, unprocessed raw mineral hand-mined from caves that formed 250 million years ago. The gorgeous pink salt boasts many health properties, including regulating water content throughout your body, promoting healthy pH balance in your cells, promoting blood sugar health, regulating your sleep, and helping to reduce the signs of aging.
