Pure salt from foothills of Himalaya

History of Himalayan Salt

Himalayan salt, also known as pink salt or rock salt, is a type of salt that is mined in the foothills of the Himalayas, primarily in Pakistan. It has gained popularity in recent years due to its unique color, flavor, and supposed health benefits. The history of Himalayan salt can be traced back thousands of years.

Himalayan salt is believed to have originated from ancient seas that existed in the region around 250 million years ago. Over time, geological forces caused these seas to evaporate, leaving behind salt deposits that became buried under layers of rock and sediment.

The mining of Himalayan salt began in the 19th century when British explorers discovered the vast salt deposits in the Khewra Salt Mine, located in the Punjab region of present-day Pakistan. The mine is believed to be the world’s second-largest salt mine and continues to be a major source of Himalayan salt.

Benefits of Himalayan Salt Lick

Himalayan salt lick or Himalayan rock salt lick, is a popular mineral supplement for animals, particularly livestock and horses. Here are some potential benefits of using Himalayan compressed lick:

  1. Mineral supplementation: Himalayan compressed lick provides essential minerals and trace elements that are often lacking in the regular diet of animals. It is rich in minerals such as sodium, calcium, magnesium, and potassium, which are important for maintaining overall health and proper bodily functions.

  2. Improved digestion: The minerals present in Himalayan compressed lick can aid in digestion. Sodium, for example, is necessary for the production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach, which helps break down food and aids in nutrient absorption.

  3. Electrolyte balance: Animals require a balanced electrolyte level for proper hydration and muscle function. Himalayan salt lick provides minerals like sodium and potassium that help maintain electrolyte balance in the body, especially during hot weather or periods of increased physical activity.

  4. Promotes water intake: The presence of Himalayan compressed lick can encourage animals to drink more water. Since salt is essential for maintaining body fluid balance, animals may be naturally inclined to consume more water when they have access to a salt lick, which helps prevent dehydration.

  5. Dental health: The hardness of the compressed lick can help animals maintain good dental health. Chewing on the solid salt lick can help remove plaque and tartar buildup on their teeth and keep their gums healthy.

  6. Reduces boredom and stress: Having a salt lick available can provide a source of mental stimulation and diversion for animals. It can help alleviate boredom, particularly for confined or stabled animals, which can reduce stress-related behaviors.
