1. Sole water to flush out toxins
The best way to experience the benefits of Himalayan salt is to make sole water. It is water that is fully saturated with natural salt. Take a jug and fill 1/4th of it with Himalayan salt. Then add water to top it up completely. Seal the jug with a lid and let it sit overnight. By morning, the salt will dissolve in the water and if there is trace of salt left at the bottom of the jar, it indicates that the water has completely absorbed all the salt and is fully saturated. Now, mix 1 teaspoon of this sole water in a regular glass of water and consume every morning. Drinking this water helps in balancing the pH levels in the body, flushes out toxins, improves your energy and keeps you hydrated at all times. Scientifically speaking, the negatively charged ions in pure salt and the trace minerals enter into the cells and pull toxins from them.
2. Regulates blood sugar and hormonal balance
A daily dose of Himalayan salt can ensure proper flow of fluids in the body. A good balance of minerals and hormones, can help in improving your insulin sensitivity and prevent sudden blood sugar spikes.
3. Improves digestion
The process of digestion actually begins in the mouth and Himalayan salt can help activate your salivary glands which release amylase (an enzyme that helps digest carbs). Later, in the stomach it stimulates hydrochloric acid as well as an enzyme that digests protein and further helps in the breakdown of food.
4. Salt therapy for respiratory problems
Salt therapy is a process which utilizes pure Himalayan salt to treat respiratory diseases. In some cases salt inhaler is used for the same while in the others, the person is made to sit in a room full of salt-rich air. When this salty air is inhaled, the particles travel through the entire respiratory system and the antibacterial and antimicrobial properties of salt clean your lungs and sinuses. The salt therapy is also use to treat seasonal allergies and chest congestion.
