Natural salt chrystals contain more than 70 minerals. When they have been chemically treated, what is left is sodium chloride which has only two elements. So we want to use no sodium chloride, but natural crystals with all its minerals, which is required for the body.
Did you know that salt or sodium chloride comprises 4 parts of sodium and 6 parts chlorine by weight?
Whole Chrystal salts like the himalayan chrystal salts are rich in minerals and can be good for health.
"Commercial refined salt is not only stripped of all its minerals, besides sodium and chloride, but it is also heated at such high temperatures that the chemical structure of the salt changes. In addition it is chemically cleaned and bleached and treated with anti-caking agents which prevents it from mixing with the water in the salt container. Unfortunately the anti-caking agents perform the same functions in the human body, so the refined salt does not dissolve and combine with the water and fluids present in our system. Instead it builds up in the body and leaves deposits in organs and tissues, causing severe health problems." - A.L.Gittleman
