About Himalayan Crystal Salt
Himalayan Crystal Salt was formed over 250 million years ago when the Himalayan Mountains rose up out of the primitive ocean which covered nearly the entire surface of the planet. Back then, the ocean's salt water was completely pure, with none of the pollutants and toxins found in all water today. It has the mineral memory of that original ocean water complete with all the minerals and trace elements that are found in our bodies and essential to life. The same water that many believe is where all life evolved.
Himalayan salt comes from a low-lying region situated in the first foothills of the Himalayas, over an area of approximately 200 square miles, in the northwest corner of Pakistan. Powerful tectonic movements gave rise to the Himalayan Mountain range. Over millions of years, the enormous pressure accompanying the buckling of the Earth's crust and the formation of these mountains, buried and crystallized the salt water. Trapped in the mountains for millions of years, this crystal salt was protected from both air and water pollution which is present today all over the world.
The deposits of salt from ancient oceans are found 1,200 to 2,000 feet below the surface. Carefully mined, this is the highest quality and the purest salt in the world. No need for processing or purification like virtually all other salt. Any salt harvested in modern times directly from the sea will contain pollutants and toxins which must be removed if the salt is to be used for human consumption. Processes which remove pollutants and toxins will also remove most of the minerals and trace elements essential to our bodies.
