Most people who’ve never experienced cooking with Himalayan salt often ask whether there's really any difference between cooking with Himalayan pink salt and regular sea or table salt.
For starters, Himalayan salt is hand-mined and largely unprocessed. It contains 84 minerals and trace elements including magnesium, calcium, copper, potassiu
m and iron, that have great health benefits including electrolytes balance, proper nutrient absorption, toxins removal, improving the body's pH, normalizing blood pressure, and increasing circulation.
Regular table salt is really composed of many forms of chemicals – sometimes even sugar. This makes such types of salt difficult to digest and can potentially lead to inflammation of the tissues, high blood pressure and bloating.
