Frequently Asked Questions About Salt

1. What are the main benefits of Himalayan Crystal Salt?

  • It has a unique health-enhancing composition; an ionized colloidal form, which allows for optimum mineral absorption.
  • It contains up to 84 minerals and trace elements, which are found in our bodies. These minerals tend to increase energy levels by supplying our cells with necessary nutrients.
  • It is an all-natural, unrefined form of salt with absolutely no additives, making it the most natural source of mineral intake available.
  • It is uncontaminated by today’s environment.


2. Do I really need salt in my diet?

Yes, you cannot live without it! Our bodies require 0.007 oz of salt per day. Ironically, most of us suffer from a lack of salt, even though we are over saturated with sodium chloride (refined salt). When our daily consumption of salt is less than 0.007 oz, salt craving kicks in.


3. Does Himalayan Crystal Salt have healing benefits?

Himalayan Crystal Salt was well known and used for centuries in Ayurvedic and Tibetan medicines. For centuries, the energy/information content in the form of vital mineral elements locked away within these perfectly formed crystals of mineral-rich salt, were used by doctors for treating almost every disorder known to humans.


4. What kind of minerals are in Lumière de Sel® Himalayan Crystal Salt?

Lumière de Sel® Himalayan Crystal Salt delivers the entire mineral spectrum our body needs. The minerals in this Crystal Salt are present in a colloidal form. This means that minerals found in Lumière de Sel® Himalayan Crystal Salt such as Magnesium, Potassium, Calcium and Selenium as well as trace elements, are readily available to the body in the exact balanced proportion for optimum absorption.


5. What makes Himalayan Crystal Salt different from table salt?

Unfortunately, refined table salt is basically an industrial waste product, with only two of the original elements remaining (sodium and chloride). It has no nutritional value for our bodies. In addition, most of today’s sea salt is also refined and processed, which in turn removes essential minerals. Lumière de Sel® Himalayan Crystal Salt is raw and unprocessed, as well as uncontaminated by today’s environment. It is very unique in its composition compared to all other type of salts: all of its minerals and trace elements are interactive with each other, and easily metabolized by the body.

6. Is there any other salt similar to Himalayan Crystal Salt?

Similar deposits of salt exist in many places in the world but Himalayan salt is the only one formed under such circumstances. Sheltered from any traces of atmospheric pollution, it is extremely pure. Himalayan Salt is extracted manually and packed on site without any treatment whatsoever.


7. Where does Lumière de Sel® Himalayan Crystal Salt come from?

Himalayan Crystal Salt is the most rare and precious form of natural salt. It was formed millions of years ago, under the pressure of the Himalayan Mountains where ancient seas have dried up from the energy of the sun. This enormous pressure changed the molecular structure of the rock salt deposits, trapping the sun’s energy (bio-photons) and making it the best quality Crystal Salt in the world. Himalayan Crystal Salt was formed 250 million years ago when the Himalayan Mountains rose up out of the primitive ocean that nearly covered the entire surface of the planet. It is the mineral memory of that original sea. Himalayan salt comes from a low-lying region situated in the first foothills of the Himalayas, over an area of approximately 200 square miles, in the northwest of Pakistan. The sea covering this region evaporated due to climatic changes. Powerful tectonic movements gave rise to the Himalayan range. The enormous pressure accompanying the buckling of the Earth’s crust provoked the formation of cubic crystalline structures comparable to those of precious stones (from a bio-energetic point of view). The deposits of salt from this ancient ocean are found high in the Himalayan range but also 1200 to 2000 feet below the surface. Himalayan Crystal Salt is the most beneficial, cleanest salt available on this planet, where the energy of the sun has dried up the original, primitive ocean millions of years ago. It is absolutely pristine and natural, identical to the ancient primal ocean. As in Quinton’s Plasma and T.J. Clark’s source in Utah, it contains all the elements found in our bodies.


8. How does the structure of Himalayan Crystal Salt impact its absorbability?

This translucent crystal has a perfect geometrical structure: ionized colloidal. As a result, all of its minerals and trace elements are totally absorbed by our bodies. Compared to ordinary sea salt under a microscope, we can see that the elements of Himalayan Crystal Salt are perfectly linked to the crystal itself, while in ordinary sea salt they are dispersed without any links.
