For anyone who has any sense of consciousness about staying healthy, you already know the importance of staying hydrated. It’s no surprising that drinking water is an essential part of life – and I think we’re all on the same page about how it’s supposed to help your mental health, your skin, your breath, weight loss…and the list goes on.
Recently, I’ve been hearing about Himalayan Salt and the benefits of adding it to your water.
Forgive me for being skeptical, but I’ve always understood that if you are lost at sea, you cannot drink the ocean water, because it has salt in it, and you will just dehydrate yourself. It seems counter-intuitive to me to add salt – known to dehydrate you, or so I’ve always thought – to your water.
But hey, the point of this blog is to try new things – so here we go!
As usual, I start with a quick Google search. Try it – I typed in “Himalayan Pink Salt Water” and a gazillion results popped up about health benefits.
This NDTV Food article, “5 Benefits of Starting Your Day with Himalayan Salt Water (Sole Water,” shares just that – 5 benefits.
This particular article sites the benefits as: staying hydrated, getting vitamins and minerals, clearing skin, better sleep, and improved digestion.
This post from “Wellness Mama” also adds in detoxifying the body, weight loss, and boosting energy to the list.
All stuff I am here for.
But – is it true? How does it taste?
As usual, I’ve found step by step directions – but I’m going rogue and just going to add some sea salt to my water for the first try, and then I’ll follow the directions for the second day.
I’m going to follow the directions shared here, just to be authentic.
I normally have a 16 ounce glass of water as soon as I get up. Maybe I’m a weirdo, but I always use warm water for this. Some days I add mint, other days lemon – sometimes both. This week I’ll add Trader Joe’s Himalayan Pink Salt.
I’ll let you know how it goes.
