Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt supports the body’s natural defenses. In the early 20th century, doctors noticed that people who ate processed table salt often suffered from chronic degenerative diseases, including goitre — an unsightly growth on the neck caused by the lack of iodine, which had been processed out of commercial salt, so iodine was artificially added back in, which is why it’s called “iodized salt” today. However, iodine was the only mineral that was added, because it prevents the most obvious disease (goiter is very noticeable). So processed table salt is still missing over 80 minerals! Why would you want to eat salt that has been artificially enriched with ONE mineral when you could be eating salt that naturally contains eighty-four minerals?
