Rock Salt or Himalayan pink salt - side effects
Side effects of Rock Salt
Less Iodine Content
The pink salt has less iodine content which makes it unsuitable for people with iodine deficiency. Iodine has a vital function in maintaining thyroid hormone production.
The Himalayan pink salt may only contain some traces of the mineral iodine but is still less as compared to other iodized salts.
Too Much Sodium Intake
Sodium is harmful for your health as it raises blood pressure. Hypertension patients should reduce their sodium intake from the normal 2300 mg to 1500 mg to stay safe. Again, it has almost the same quantity of sodium like any other table salt but the crystalized form may reduce the quantity you use. This will ultimately reduce your sodium intake.
Try not to overdose on Himalayan pink salt thinking that it will be better than other salts.
Too Much Chloride
Chloride can cause malfunctioning of the kidneys and make the body environment acidic. Insulin resistance and diabetes are other health issues to arise if you overdose in chloride intake.
However, the environment may turn alkaline if there is no chloride intake as the vegetables and fruits turn into bicarbonates in the body. It is essential to maintain a healthy acid base balance in the body for vital functioning of organs.
