Gamma Himalayan Salt FAQ

What is GAMMA Genuine Himalayan Crystal Salt?
In today’s modern society salt has been given a bad rap. It is considered unhealthy and unnecessary. As industrialization came to a full swing, much of what we eat has been genetically altered.

Today’s common salt is chemically refined; all of the natural minerals are removed as they are considered to be impurities and reduced only to sodium and chloride. This process made the salt unhealthy; it is not a natural element and is poison to the body. Eating common table salt results in the formation of edema, or excess fluid in the body tissue, which is also the cause of cellulite. That’s why doctors say to avoid salt. For every gram of sodium chloride that the body cannot get rid of, the body uses twenty-three times the amount of cell water to neutralize this salt. That makes our body weak and prone to diseases.

GAMMA Himalayan Salt is however pre-pollution and without environmental impact. It is absolutely pristine, purest, totally natural, unrefined, cleanest and most complete Salt available. It is identical in minerals to the ancient primal ocean with all the minerals and trace elements our body needs. These natural minerals are identical to the minerals, which our bodies have evolved with and are also originally found existing in the primal ocean.

Life came from the sea, its nutrients and the suns energy. Millions of years ago when the formation of the Himalayas begun, the primal ocean was naturally dried up with the energy of the sun, as the mighty Himalayas were rising, over time with intense pressure and temperatures salt became crystallized. The higher the amount of pressure the more superior the crystalline structure. Alexander the great discovered it and since then it has been a part of regular diet for natives.

GAMMA Himalayan Salt is the finest; hand picked and stone ground crystal salt, which is transparent with pink and reddish veins. Only Genuine GAMMA Himalayan Crystal Salt should be used for flavoring food, Brine solution and for bathing.

How Does GAMMA Himalayan Salt compare to Sea Salt?
Oceans cover 70% of our earth. However, the oceans are being degraded with nuclear waste, industrial waste and farm chemical run-off. Not a single year passes without major news of at least one fractured oil tanker causing catastrophe. Recent government warnings about the increased levels of mercury in our oceans limit us to eat fish only once or twice a month. Today, sea salt does not have the same positive impact on our health, as it used to. Most of the sea salt undergoes man-made refining to get it to the packaged commodity stage.
