Himalayan Pink Salt There is an old expression "worth ones salt" which has its root in ancient Roman linguistics. Soldiers then were paid a 'Salarium' which was an allowance for the purchase of salt, and in fact the roman word for soldier literally translates to 'one who is paid in salt.' In those days salt was a rare and valuable commodity. Why? Naturally acquired Pink Himalayan salt is packed with 84 essential trace minerals and electrolytes and plays a valuable role in the regulation of myriad bodily processes. However, after the invention of artificially produced sodium chloride (table salt), the overuse and abundance of this type of salt — which is completely devoid of trace minerals — gave salt a bad name. In fact, after the invention and proliferation of this type of artificial salt, doctors started noticing health conditions among the population that were related to lack of mineral intake, so they decided to insert iodine back into this artificial salt. That is where we get 'iodized salt.' But even with the added iodine, table salt does not come anywhere near the mineral packed powerhouse that mother nature created.
