HIMALAYAN SALT is similar to common table salt. It is 98% sodium chloride and the rest contains minerals including calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, aluminium and others.
Himalayan salt is used to add flavor to the food and is healthier than the common table salt / sea salt. It is used to make household utensils such as cooking slabs, shot glasses and serving dishes. In recent years it has also been used to make Salt lamps which releases ions that benefit health.
Pink Himalayan salt keeps you hydrated and maintains blood pressure. It also strengthens your bones as it contains calcium and magnesium.

Himalayan Salt licks are the perfect salt nutrition and mineral supplement for cattle, horses, and other livestock. With all the essential nutrients needed by the animal at all life stages – they are an essential part of daily feed.
Salt licks are especially important in harsh weather and environments with poor availability of the much needed nutrients, as well as elements such as phosphorus, sodium, calcium, iron, zinc and other trace elements required for bone, muscle and other formation in animals. Lactating cows, for instance, are particularly vulnerable to salt deficiency and every day, they need salt to make milk which contains a good amount of sodium and chloride.
Himalayan salt licks are more than just salt – they are complete health supplement both for animals and cattle including horses, cows, buffaloes, sheep, camels, home and farm pets. Cattle require salt every day for osmotic pressure maintenance, acid-base balance, body-fluid balance, nerve transmission and active transport of amino acids, as well as cellular uptake of glucose carrier protein, and Sodium, as part of salt, provides the majority of alkaline reserve in plasma. Chlorine is necessary for activation of amylase, formation of gastric HCl acid, and is critical for respiration and regulation of blood pH.
Himalayan salt lamps are crystals carved from amber-colored rock salt, hollowed out to fit a lightbulb inside. When you light them, they give out a warm, reddish-pink glow.
Sellers of these decorative pieces say they do more than light up a room. They claim the lamps can boost mood, improve sleep, ease allergies, help people with asthma breathe better, and clean the air, among other benefits.
The claims sound impressive. Yet the scientific evidence to back them up is scarce.
The salt in these lamps comes from the Himalayas, a mountain range that stretches about 1,500 miles across Pakistan, India, Bhutan, and Nepal.
True Himalayan salt lamps come from the Khewra Salt Mine in Pakistan. The salt this mine produces has a reddish, pink, or off-white color.
