As the plates of the earth moved and over the ages pushed the Himalayas towards the heavens, the sea evaporated under the heat of the sun to form what we now know as Himalayan Salt. Because of the conditions by which it was formed, this form of salt is one of the best sources of natural minerals on the planet and is exponentially healthier than the bleached and processed table salt. Pro Nature Classic Himalayan Pink Salt is often utilised in the same way as table salt. It is used for cooking, seasoning & preserving food. It contains 84 Essential Minerals, is completely Natural & Unrefined.
