A Himalayan salt block is a large piece of pink salt, hand carved and formed into a plate. It is this giant, luminescent chunk of salt that is infused with magnesium, iron, zinc, manganese and all these beautiful minerals that give it this preternatural, pink, crazy color. They are a very unique way to prepare and serve vegetables, seafood, chicken and even cold dishes like raw fish.
Himalayan salt is considered among the purest in the world, free from pollutants
Himalayan salt is 100% the healthiest and purest salt hailing from a pristine area deep in the Himalayan mountain range. It is also known as “pink gold”. It has been used as valuable foods in since ancient times the human diet.
When heated, they change color and develop a patina in the same way that a cast-iron skillet or a wok is seasoned with use.
Rich in calcium, iron and some 84 trace minerals.
It contains 84 precious elements that are found in our body, thus supplying our body with all the necessary and essential minerals. It does contain small amounts of calcium, iron, potassium and magnesium. It also contains slightly lower amounts of sodium than regular salt. These minerals and elements are present in the crystals as tiny particles of colloidal size, which can be easily absorbed and metabolized by the human cells.
Food tastes better
Something magical happens when food is prepared on a Himalayan salt block. Unlike regular table salt, you can’t over- or under-season your food. It provides just the right amount of flavor.
A salt block is probably one of the safest cooking utensils that you can have in your kitchen. Salt is an antimicrobial agent that has been used since the start of time for killing off microbes and preserving food.
Extreme Temperature Resistance
Another benefit of a Himalayan salt block is that it withstands extreme temperatures. So, you can chill it in the fridge to serve cold food, or you can place it on a grill or gas stove to heat up for frying food. It is said that it can withstand temperatures between 0°F and 900°F (-17°C to 482°C).
You shouldn’t, however, expose the salt block to sudden temperature changes and you should let it rest for 24 hours between uses.
How to Use Your Himalayan Salt Block for Cooking?
The Himalayan salt block is best used on a grill or a gas stove. It is not recommended for use in an oven.
To use it on a gas stove, you should start at a low temperature and gradually increase the temperature. It will take around 30-40 minutes to reach a temperature of 300°F (149°C).
Budget plenty of time — 40 minutes to heat the salt block gradually before cooking.
… Let the block cool completely before cleaning.

Take the quiz above and see if you got the correct answer!
In April, 2009, researchers stunned the medical community when they reported chronic inflammation as the root cause of several major diseases.
See, every year 610,000 people in the U.S. die of heart disease. Cancer claims another 584,000...stroke 130,000...Alzheimer's disease nearly 85,000 — and the list goes on.
Truth is, we now know... chronic inflammation is responsible for 7 out of the top 10 leading causes of death in the United States! Hundreds of studies and scientific reviews prove it.
Fortunately, newer research shows you can prevent-even reverse-most major diseases by "turning off" inflammation. And in our new book, we show you how to do just that.
If you or a loved one is suffering from a debilitating condition-and you"re not sure what the culprit is-now's the time to find out...while you can still do something about it!
