HIMALAYAN CRYSTAL SALT BENEFITS
Mineral Salts are naturally occurring inorganic salts found in the earth and oceans. They need to be ingested or absorbed by the body for healthy growth and maintenance.
Created and provided by mother nature to sustain all living organisms.
Simply put.. no mineral salt…no life.
We have created a range of products to assist you in maintaining mineral salt levels.
Whether you are an overworked, stressed or tired parent, love your sports and you play hard, our products will soothe your mood, relax your aching muscles and enhance wellbeing.

Pure, natural Himalayan salt has been subjected to enormous mechanical pressure over millions of years. This pressure is responsible for creating the salt crystals. The higher the pressure, the more ideal the state of order within the crystalline structure. Salt, for humans, is foremost an information carrier and not a spice. For information to be absorbed into our cells, a crystalline structure is necessary. To explain the point: Chemically, a stone and a quartz crystal are both silicates. However, the vast difference in the amounts of pressure they were subjected to, distinguishes them. The quartz crystal embodies a perfect geometric form, a perfect state of order within its structure. The stone does not. Its elements are coarse, because it was not subjected to enough pressure to create a crystalline structure. Crystal salt layers wind through the mountain of salt, shimmering in transparent white, pinkish or reddish veins. The elements trapped within the crystal salt are in particles small enough to be able to penetrate the human cells and be metabolised. Original Himalayan salt contains all the elements of which the human body is comprised. From the periodic table of elements we are familiar with 94 natural elements (stable as well as unstable).
Chemical content of Himalayan Salt: hydrogen, lithium, beryllium, boron, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, fluoride,, sodium, magnesium, aluminium, silicium, phosphorus, sulphur, chloride, calcium, scandium, titanium, vanadium, chromium, manganese, iron, cobalt, nickel, copper, zinc, gallium, germanium, arsenic, selenium, bromine, rubidium, strontium, yttrium, zirconium, niobium, molybdenum, ruthenium, rhodium, palladium, silver, cadmium, indium, tin, antimony, tellurium, iodine, caesium, barium, lanthanum, cerium, praseodymium, samarium, europium, gadolinium, terbium, dysprosium, holmium, erbium, thulium, ytterbium, lutetium, hafnium, tantalum, tungsten, rhenium, osmium, iridium, platinum, gold, mercury, thallium, lead, bismuth. polonium, astatine, francium, radium, actinium, thorium, protactinium, uranium, neptunium and plutonium.
Apart from inert gases, all of these elements (84) can be found in crystal salt. Hence, crystal salt contains all natural minerals and trace elements that are found in the human body. We perceive crystal salt as being the totality of all natural elements. This may not be entirely correct according to chemistry, however we will continue to use the term crystal salt in this context.
Crystal salt from the Himalayas is considered the King’s Salt. It is also known as the “white gold” or “salt of life”. This is not surprising, since the word salt comes from sun (sol). Himalayan salt contains an abundance of stored sunlight. When we speak of Himalayan Crystal Salt, we are referring to only one specific crystal salt, the “Original”, coming from one specific location in the East Karakorom range of the Himalayas in Pakistan, that has been the subject of comprehensive medical research. Original Himalayan Salt is more than sodium and chloride. Original Himalayan Crystal Salt can actually be viewed as a nourishment. When we speak of salt, and as we scrutinize its properties, we mean only the salt in its original form: holistic, wholesome, unaltered, natural salt, as it has crystallized in the Earth over millions of years. Such salt is a pure ocean of energy. Plinius, a Roman writer (23-79 AD) already declared: Crystal salt is the most important remedy for mankind.
CRYSTAL SALT vs. ROCK SALT
The elements in rock salt are not integrated into the salt’s crystal grid, but cling to the outside surface and crevices of the crystalline structure. This is the fundamental difference between rock salt and crystal salt. A salt crystal manifests a superior structure. Due to this sublime form, the elements are biochemically available for our cells as are the individual frequencies or vibration patterns. Rock salt is a cheap alternative to table salt, and is at least a natural and wholesome product. Biochemically and biophysically however, it is of little importance to our organism. We can only receive the resonant effects of the geometrical structure through the superior order or structure of a crystal and our cells can only absorb those elements that occur in an ional form. Only under considerable pressure can the elements be transformed into a specific size, making them ional, which enables them to pass through cells’ walls in our body.
This is important because our cells can only absorb what is available organically or in ional form. Therefore, we cannot absorb the minerals from mineral water as they’re not fragmented enough to penetrate our cell walls. And what doesn’t get into our cells cannot be metabolised. Therefore, the best calcium is useless if it cannot be available to the body’s cells. What we need is the organic, or ional state of an element, in perfect natural symbiosis with all its associated elements, in order for our organism to make any use of it.
FROM THE HIMALAYA’s TO YOUR HOME
Best suppliers harvest their crystal salt from the deepest salt mine in the Himalayas. The purest, nearly transparent crystals, which look like uncut diamonds, come from a thin bottom layer of the mine, the location of which is a highly guarded secret. Salt rocks of 10 to 35 kg are manually cut out in the mine, tested for purity by an internationally accredited independent company, and transported to their production and shipping facility. Our Himalayan Salt is of the highest quality available. After being once again tested by an independent certifying engineer, they are cleaned, sun dried and finally sorted by colour. Attractively coloured crystals, are used for making air ionising lamps. The darker stones are processed into bathing salt. The purest stones are cut by hand into pieces of between 20 and 60 grams each, washed in brine and sun dried.

Sourced from Karom Salts who deal directly with a small family of artisans located in Gujranwala, located in the Salt Range in the NW Pakistan. Our salt is recovered from seams erupting from strata laid down over 200 million years ago.
Himalayan Crystal Salt is most effective as a provider of mineral nourishment due to the aeons of time during which it was formed. The process of maturation under compression allowed abundant time for the rich mineralization of what was originally sea-salt by its surrounding matrix of rock. Our salt is effectively super-charged sea salt without the pollution from compromised sea water.
