In today’s uber-connected world, computers, smartphones, microwaves and other
electronics constantly emit positive ions — also known as “electric smog” — that can leave
us feeling drained and down. Excessive positive ions can also come from bacteria, mold
In comparison, the natural environment – such as nature’s magnificent forests, beaches,
and waterfalls – creates abundant negative ions. Pure Himalayan salt (derived from the
Primal Sea) is filled with negative ions.
Gently heated, Himalayan salt serves as a natural ionizer, thanks to salt’s hygroscopic
properties. When heated, the Himalayan salt crystals attract moisture on the salt block
surface, and as that moisture evaporates, negative ions are emitted.
The negatively charged ions from the heated Himalayan salt serve to purify the circulating
air. Our bodies also reap numerous health benefits from the salt, including stress reduction,
energy increases, and mood boosts at a biochemical level.
