Rock salt, also refered to as saindhava lavana or halite, is formed when salt water from a lake evaporates and leaves behind crystals of what is called salt- NaCl, (sodium chloride). Rock salt is a purer version of our common table salt.Underrated as it is, the benefits of rock salt are innumerable. It is inherently rich in minerals like zinc, calcium, iron, potassium and copper- micronutrients necessary for a healthy body and mind. Himalayan pink salt is one of the best varieties of sendha namak. 500 grams of Anahata’s organic Himalayan rock salt, can last you for a month. Brought straight to our factories, this infused salt is known to have several health benefits over regular white salt. Often used in ‘kadhas’ and medicinal preparations, sendha namak can help treat cold and cough and other digestive problems.
Rock salt or sendha namak, as it is popularly called, is a healthier alternative to your regular white salt. Infused with several microelements like calcium, potasium, zinc and copper, rock salt was used thoroughly in all delectables before being replaced by common salt. Common salt is often refined through a process that is meant to make it look ‘whiter’. What most people fail to notice is that salt often loses a large chunk of its mineral content during this whitening process. Also, a large number of potentially harmful chemicals are added to prevent clumping and settling while storage. Rock salt or sendha namak on the other hand, is pure to the core, devoid of chemicals and 100% safe to consume. Switch common salt with Anahata’s sendha namak, an infused salt that is one of the best organic salt available in the Indian market. Not only will it help improve digestion and metabolism, but can also be used in medicinal concoctions to help treat common cold and cough.
