He is in fashion. But you should? Study finally reveals what is really behind the health benefits provided by Himalayan salt.
Salt Released - This Is Hard To Swallow
Flavor Without Guilt - Reinventing Salt
Like all fashions, it has spread rapidly.
And suddenly, Himalayan salt is everywhere - see more here.
But how much truth is behind these rhinestones?
We know that its color comes from the unique combination of the minerals of its composition.
In this variety are calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium and phosphorus in large quantities.
These elements are vital for good vascular health, promoting pH balance and increasing bone strength.
Used in light bulbs, it is claimed to have the power to relieve symptoms of seasonal affective disorder, a form of depression.
Spas treatments were created using the substance.
The therapy consists of patients staying in rooms coated with Himalayan salt to take care of respiratory conditions through negative ions.
However, according to a new study, none of this can be proven.
The research was done by the Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona (United States).
In it, the scientists decided to question the alleged benefits one by one.
First, on the power of negative ions, there is no evidence that they can interfere with consciousness and mood.
And anyway, the Himalayan salt does not emit negative ions.
As for taste, some people prefer its taste.
After all, salts differ in taste exactly in the content and quantity of each mineral present.
According to the study, this “formula” does not make Himalayan salt more nutritious than sea salt.
It is only more expensive.
