Himalayan Pink Salt

There is an old expression "worth ones salt" which has its root in ancient Roman linguistics. Soldiers then were paid a 'Salarium' which was an allowance for the purchase of salt, and in fact the roman word for soldier literally translates to 'one who is paid in salt.' In those days salt was a rare and valuable commodity. Why? Naturally acquired Pink Himalayan salt is packed with 84 essential trace minerals and electrolytes and plays a valuable role in the regulation of myriad bodily processes. However, after the invention of artificially produced sodium chloride (table salt), the overuse and abundance of this type of salt — which is completely devoid of trace minerals — gave salt a bad name. In fact, after the invention and proliferation of this type of artificial salt, doctors started noticing health conditions among the population that were related to lack of mineral intake, so they decided to insert iodine back into this artificial salt. That is where we get 'iodized salt.' But even with the added iodine, table salt does not come anywhere near the mineral packed powerhouse that mother nature created.
When it comes to naturally acquired salt, there is no finer specimen than Pink Himalayan Salt. The pink color is actually indicative of the presence of valuable trace minerals, and the taste is unlike anything you would find in your local diner salt shaker. It hits the palate with a smoother flavor, the difference between a fine scotch and rubbing alcohol. Pink Himalayan Salt does not have that harsh, stinging bite which allows you to utilize it much more effectively as both a spice and to supplement food. There is perhaps no simpler way to get the 84 trace minerals valuable to the body that mother nature has produced than to include real pink himalayan salt in your diet. The salt deposits from which our Kosher Pink Himalayan Salt is mined are roughly 250 million years old, meaning they were deposited long before the earth became polluted with heavy metals, pesticides, or PCBs. While there is really no such thing as "organic" salt, this is probably the most pristine salt you'll find anywhere on the planet. Eating this salt is a lot like going back in time and consuming minerals from pre-industrial Earth. Once you try it, you will never go back.

Himalayan Salt is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Salt for the masses Used this to mix into water for a start of day boost. After reading Marcus's book, I figured I’d give it a try. Good taste, mixes well. Not a salt aficionado, but 10/10 would try again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Himalayan Salt I have been using Himalayan Salt for a very long time, this particular brand is excellent. I sent it to one of my sons who had never tried it, and he tells me he can taste and feel the difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Salt Ever!!! Hands down, this is the best salt ever. I do miss the individual packets Onnit used to sell. I wish they could bring them back, but I'm still happy with the 2lb bags.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's salt, it's salty. I like this product, and I use this product. I don't think the price is too out of line with similar products, especially when I order it with other ONNIT products. If I could make one change it would be this...coarse ground. I just prefer coarse ground to fine ground salt. I will most likely continue using it.
