    Pink Himalayan sea salt is believed to be the purest salt on Earth. Packed with minerals needed for the body to perform important functions, this is an ingredient that anyone who exercises (and sweats a lot) needs to incorporate into their diet especially following strenuous activities.


    A few hundred million years ago, crystallised sea salt beds, now deep within the Himalayan mountain range, were covered by lava. Along with the snow and ice that covers the area all year round, the lava is thought to have protected the salt from modern-day pollution leading to the belief that Himalayan pink sea salt is the purest salt found on Earth. It's now hand-mined from the mountains and brought to you by Innermost.

    What is pink Himalayan sea salt?

    Pink Himalayan sea salt contains the same 84 trace minerals and elements found in the human body including sodium chloride, sulphate, calcium, potassium, and magnesium. Conversely, the common table salt found in most homes contains none of those. Another great thing about pink Himalayan sea salt is that, because of its unique cellular structure, the minerals it contains exist in colloidal form, which means that they are small enough for our cells to easily absorb.

    The health benefits of pink Himalayan sea salt

    Pink Himalayan sea salt has been touted to offer a myriad of health benefits including lowering blood pressure, detoxing, balancing your body's acidity and promoting the health of your arteries. In addition, the minerals found in the salt are needed for hydration, nerve impulses, muscle function and maintaining balanced pH levels. Given we lose those same minerals as we sweat, it becomes even more important that you replace them after activities that might cause you to sweat a lot such as working out.

    Innermost Thoughts

    Pink Himalayan sea salt is one of the ingredients in The Fit Protein. Recommended for anyone looking to rehydrate and restore their mineral reserves (especially) after a workout. Along with the other ingredients found in The Fit Protein, this blend serves to nourish and replenish your body.
