1Maintains electrolyte balance
Dissolving pink salt in water can become a solution for people who need to replace the lost electrolytes in their bodies.

Add a few cups of salt in a bathtub and turn the tap to a temperature you can handle. So, next time if you want to be relieved of the stress your work or love life brings, spend it in the bathtub.
3Treats sore muscles

4Heals sinus congestion
Instead of using decongestant pills to relieve your itchy and stuffy nose, use can try this mixture of pink salt and luke warm water. Also known as a “Saline solution,” this wash will effectively help get rid of the troublesome dripping off an annoying snot.

5Acne Wash and Toner
Buying those chemically processed facial washes and toners can be quite expensive. So, try this cheaper and efficient way instead. Pink salt contains astringents that are perfectly ideal for the skin. It is a natural ingredient that gently cleanses your skin while leaving your skin’s pH level perfectly balanced. Undeniably, though those store brought toners keep your skin tight, it is only for a temporary period and overtime it can cause more harm than good.
6Builds healthy and strong bones
“A salt a day keeps the bones straight.” Okay, that does not a lot of sense but, it is true that Himalayan salt makes your bones stronger. As I have said earlier, HPS contains many minerals, and some of these minerals help in fortifying your bones and their structure. Substitute your ordinary table salt with HPS instead and use it to add flavor to healthy dishes. Always remember though that too much of something can be bad, so take good care of your bones.
7Boosts nutrients absorption
Taking in a lot of ‘health’ pills or nutritious meals can be quite disappointing if it just exits our bodies without actually doing anything. When you ingest something in the hopes of becoming fit and active, it is important to note if our bodies are absorbing all those nutrients or just letting it wash down the drain. Pink salt, when regularly consumed, provides plenty of vital minerals that will boost our bodies absorption level.
Inadequate sleep can affect you a lot. Studies have shown that not having enough sleep can affect you severely, from your mood making you down right irritable, to your physical performance making you slow and sleepy. Not having enough sleep can damage your whole well being. Adults need at least seven to eight (7-8) hours of sleep for their bodies and brain to function properly. However, stress from our everyday life and affect our sleep negatively which in turn can have an impact on a whole lot of aspects of our life negatively.
Not to worry anymore, two ingredients when combined will give you all the good night sleep you need. Mixing honey and Himalayan pink salt and taking it in before going to sleep can make you energized the next morning. Honey releases melatonin, a sleep hormone, that will help you sleep like a baby.
9Treats skin problems
From acne to rashes, to warts and rashes. Pink salt is also a what I would dub a “wonder” ingredient. People, unique as we are have different skin tones and types. Depending on the climate and weather of a particular place, our skin could get rough, scratchy, and patchy which is a major EW and it would probably horrify and possible suitors. Not to worry ladies, Captain pink salt is here to save the day! Mix a cup of pink with a few drops of your favorite essential oil and use it as a scrub. Not only will it remove dead skin cells on your skin, but, it will also leave it feeling smooth and moisturized. Thanks, captain!
The sun shone beautifully, waking you up from your deep slumber and you look in the mirror with a smile on your face only to quickly morph into an expression of utter horror. A huge lump has grown in your throat, and you scream a painful scream only to wake up again, you quickly touch your throat for any signs of humps and realize it was all just a dream. Okay, waking up with an extremely painful throat is just horrible, how much more if it is a goiter.
Thankfully, pink salt can prevent this from happening. Goiters are caused by iodine deficiency which can also affect your offspring. Just using table salt or ‘iodized’ salt will not cut it. Pink salt, unlike iodized salt, is not processed. In other words, all of its minerals and components are intact, making it a more healthy choice than just regular salt.
