Is Himalayan pink salt good for you? Well, it sure is pretty… and there’s no denying that it’s gorgeous coral tones can evoke some positive, sunshiny thoughts! But is it actually healthy to eat?

In Dr. Paul Drago’s professional take — both as a wellness coach and as a medical professional — Himalayan pink salt is not healthier for you than your average table salt.  And therefore, it’s not any less healthy, at the basic level!  In general, sodium is only good for you in moderation… as are most things, of course.  But while Himalayan pink salt may not necessarily be ‘healthier’ for you, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t come with its own unique benefits!

Some of the most commonly discussed wellness benefits of pink Himalayan salt include:

  • Improvement with respiratory disease
  • Better pH balance in the body
  • Reduced signs of aging
  • Improvement in sleep quality
  • Regulation of blood sugar
