Pink Himalayan salt

Pink Himalayan salt is a much more #balanced and healthy #choice in comparison to common table salt. True, high-quality #pink Himalayan salt is one of the purest salts you can find. It’s even typically mined by hand. This is very different from table salt that involves a #great deal of unnatural interference. Table salt is very heavily processed, eliminating its minerals. Commercial table salt is typically 97.5 percent to 99.9% sodium chloride. Meanwhile, a high-quality unrefined salt like Himalayan sea salt is only about 87 percent sodium chloride. With most table salts, you’re only left with one mineral (sodium), some added iodine and most often some really health-hazardous anti-clumping agent like yellow prussiate of soda. Many commercial table salts also undergo a bleaching process and contain aluminum derivatives and other terrible ingredients known to be highly toxic to #human health. This Himalaya pink salt: 1. Improves #Respiratory Problems. 2. Balances Body’s pH. 3. Natural Digestive Aid. 4. Air Purifier. 5. Better Sleep Inducer.

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends eating 1–2 portions of fish per week. This is because the omega-3 fatty acids in fish provide many health benefits, including helping to protect against a number of diseases. It's important to note that the types of omega-3s found in fish oil have greater health benefits than the omega-3s found in some plant sources.The main omega-3s in fish oil are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), while the omega-3 in plant sources is mainly alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Although ALA is an important essential fatty acid, EPA and DHA have many more health benefits: Studies have shown that people who eat a lot of fish have much lower rates of heart disease.
