|Rose pink crystal salt|
Seems that it is salt with a difference - i.e. it is unrefined - not mucked about with, processed, jazzed up, over packaged. It has some 84 elements within it, apparently the same as is found in the human body. These elements are in colloidal form, meaning they are small enough to be absorbed into the body, so that's a handy thing to know. It comes from the natural waters in the Himalayas and is harvested naturally and by hand. There are no additives (such as anti caking agents, bleaches and so on) and this explains why it is presented in such an unusual form - small pinkish coloured crystals.
The idea of us trying this out is three-fold:
- seasoning for our food; perhaps bringing a nice, new taste
- could this be a possible cure for the cramp I seem to suffer from more these days
- it's something new for us to try
I mentioned about cramp. Yep I get cramp in my toes, feet and legs quite a bit these days. The most inconvenient time is when I'm on my bicycle with my feet locked into the pedals courtesy of SPD pedals and shoes. I tell you, that can be pretty scary at over 30mph. Take a look at this article for the full account.
Mind you, while I'm looking forward to trying this salt out, I'm going to be careful I don't end up taking too much salt in. No matter how good this is, too much salt can raise blood pressure which is best avoided these days for us all.
So there you go. Some new salt which is possibly millions of years old and costs £3.99 for 500g. It is supplied wholesale by http://www.profusionorganic.co.uk. Whether it cures my cramp or not - we'll wait and see!
