What about sodium?!?!
When consuming this salt, you are actually getting less sodium intake per serving than regular table salt because it is less refined and the pieces are larger. Therefore Himalayan salt has less sodium per serving because the crystals or flakes take up less room than the highly processed table salt variety. Himalayan salt is mined from 200 million year-old sea beds, it is completely free of the heavy metals and other toxins that show up in sea salts harvested from today's oceans.
Adrenal Fatigue and Pink Himalayan Salt
Many things cause Adrenal Fatigue, from environmental toxins, too much caffeine, lack of nutrients, not enough sleep and stress! Adrenals produce the critical metabolism-supporting hormones epinephrine (adrenaline), norepinephrine and aldosterone and when your adrenals are fatigued those hormones are not present in proper levels which results in many different symptoms but most present, tiredness/fatigue/lethargy. Lack of aldosterone can disrupt the sodium balance at a cellular level and this can actually increase your needs for natural sodium and helps explain the salt cravings many people with adrenal fatigue experience.
It is important to give adrenals all the support that we can and one of the best ways is having salt water first thing in the morning when your adrenals fire up. Their one goal is to raise your blood pressure as increased blood pressure kick starts all our other organs that have been practically stagnant but the problem is that to raise blood pressure, the brain orders the adrenals to pump out adrenaline which is a stressful tasks for them. Flushing your system with salt water raises your blood pressure which saves your adrenals from having to do it.
