I like to add the juice of a lemon right before drinking my vegetable juice to preserve its enzymes (some juices blades still heat up veggies and fruits). Additionally, I add a dash or two of Himalayan salt to add some more minerals to this healthy equation.
In the video below you will learn about the amazing benefits of Himalayan salt. Replace table salt and swap it as soon as you find celtic sal, sea salt, or Himalayan salt which already contain up to 52 different minerals including, Iodine, magnesium, selenium, iodine (naturally occurring) and many more.
Benefits of Himalayan Salt
Vitamins and minerals are perfectly packaged in fruits and vegetables because this salt was formed naturally the minerals within the sodium work in synergy.
(Synergy is the interaction of multiple elements in a system to produce an effect different from or greater than the sum of their individual effects.)
Iodine – Natural salts are rich in iodine, so it doesn’t need to be artificially added in.
Less sodium consumed per serving – Himalayan salt is made of the same components as table salt but since the crystal structure is larger than refined salt, and by volume- this salt therefore has LESS sodium per 1/4 t. serving- because the sea salt crystals or flakes take up less room on a teaspoon than highly refined tiny table salt grains.
Packs a hearty 80+ minerals and elements – Himalayan salts are mineral packed crystals which formed naturally within the earth made up of 85.62% sodium chloride and 14.38% other trace minerals including: sulphate, magnesium, calcium, potassium, bicarbonate, bromide, borate, strontium, and fluoride (in descending order of quantity).
Because of these minerals Himalayan pink salt can:
