Born of Tibetan glaciers, the Indus River runs a course through the pristine valleys of Kashmir. For a total of 3200 kilometers, the river feeds the ecosystem of temperate forests, plains and arid countryside. On the banks of the river, high in the Himalayan foothills, lies the village of Wanda Kukranwala. It was near here, in the time of Alexander the Great, that mankind first discovered "the finest quality crystal salt on earth".
The crystal salt found here was so pure that it was used as local currency - nature"s "white gold". Today, you and your body can benefit from the "salt of life" that nature has provided. Nirvana Organics Himalayan Crystal Salt was formed about 250 million years ago when the energy of the sun dried a primal ocean. The ocean bed was thrust skywards by tremendous geological forces as the mighty Himalaya took shape. The pure veins of crystal salt lay locked away - waiting to be unearthed.
Nirvana Organics Himalayan Crystal Salt is much more than just rock salt or the sea salt processed in modern times. It is a complete food, identical in composition to the primal ocean itself. It contains an abundance of stored sunlight plus 84 minerals and trace elements found naturally in the human body, essential for life and good health. Due to the salt"s remarkable crystalline structure, the elements are available in minute particles (colloidal size) and can easily be absorbed by human cells and metabolized.

The origins of Himalayan Crystal Salt
Nirvana Organics Himalayan Crystal Salt is found in veins flowing beneath the salt mountains of the Kalabagh region in the Himalayan foothills. Our salt is extracted exclusively from the Kalabagh. The salt is hand mined from the Khewra, Warcha and Kalabagh mines. Salt from this region was formed about 250 million years ago when the energy of the sun dried a primal ocean. The ancient ocean bed was thrust skywards by tremendous geological forces to form the mighty Himalayan Mountain Range. In the process, the pure veins of crystal salt were locked away - waiting to be unearthed.
Consistency & Purity
Unlike normal sea salt, Himalayan Crystal Salt is uncontaminated by environmental factors. Better still, Himalayan Crystal Salt from the Kalabagh region, in particular, is renown for its consistent composition and purity. The composition of the salt is tested regularly each year by an independent company [SGS Laboratories]and has been shown to consistently contain all the major components of the known 84 mineral and trace elements of Himalayan Crystal Salt. A typical analysis of salt from the region indicates that the salt consistently contains the same minerals and trace elements. The salt is a completely natural product, so the exact quantity of minerals and trace elements in the salt may vary marginally from batch to batch.
84 trace elements & minerals
Nirvana Organics Himalayan Crystal Salt is much more than just sodium chloride. Our Crystal Salt naturally contains 84 minerals and trace elements essential for life and good health. These elements, found naturally in the human body, are available in a form that is easily assimilated and metabolized. The list of minerals and trace elements are clearly listed on our packaging.
Pink. And proud of it
Genuine, pure Himalayan Crystal Salt is found in veins that may vary in colour from "pure white" to "white with a pink hue" to peach. On rare occasions it may even contain red or black specs. This is perfectly natural and simply reflects the mineral and trace element content. Nirvana OrganicsTM select salt for your table that tends to be "pure white" or "white with a pink hue".
