Himalayan salts are widely known for their beauty, purity, history, and health benefits. Named 'White Gold' by ancient civilizations, Himalayan salt has a history of being enjoyed in many ways: it is wonderfully delicious in food, and it can be used in the bath, as a body soak and as a body scrub. But the benefits of Himalayan salts are not only enjoyed by humans, they are enjoyed by horses.
That's right - horses. Next time you buy a salt lick for your horse, consider buying a Himalayan salt lick. These salt licks all the benefits of Himalayan salts and are far better than those made with simple table salt. Your horse will love being pampered and you'll find that these salt licks are far better - and healthier - than any other you will find.
If you buy your horse a Himalayan salt lick, chances are you will never go back to the store-bought salt licks you used to buy.
Himalayan salt is harvested from the river beds and valleys of the ancient, breathtaking Himalaya mountain range - the largest mountain range in the world. The salt crystals are a light pinkish color, and when observed through a microscope, you would notice that they come in an astonishing variety of gorgeous geometrical patterns. These salts are mined from deposits that are over 500 million years old, and are extraordinarily pure, virtually untouched by pollutants and environmental toxins. They have been treasured for hundreds of years for their purity and physical beauty, and in ancient civilizations were greatly prized, served only to royalty.
There are many reasons Himalayan salt is wonderful for us - but does it really make a difference to your horse? The short answer is, yes.
When table salt (or rock salt) is sold, minerals are often regarded as 'impurities' and are removed during processing. Commercial salt licks are made with table salt, and nutrients are often added later during the manufacturing process. Himalayan salt licks already contain these minerals and nutrients - without any processing whatsoever! The levels of the minerals are more likely to be healthy to consume, since the levels are naturally occurring within the salt
Salt from the Himalayan mountains is nourished by the nutrient-rich water and soil in the area, and contains upwards of 84 minerals, including calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper, and iron. Calcium promotes muscle strength and nourishes the bones, leading to stronger and healthier bones, joints, teeth, and hooves. Magnesium is particularly wonderful for your active horse, providing relief for tired and aching muscles. Potassium is essential for a strong heart, while Iron keeps your horse's blood healthy.
Other health benefits include:
Regulation of Water: Himalayan salt is natural and authentic, and the crystalline shape of each piece of salt keeps its original integrity - it doesn't absorb amount of water that traditional salt does, which means less bloating and water retention for your horse (and less work for you!).
Healthy Blood Sugar Levels: Your horse will achieve and maintain healthier levels of blood sugar.
No More Muscle Cramps: Since Himalayan salts help regulate electrolyte balance, muscle cramps from running, jumping, and generally straining are kept to a minimum.
Better Blood Pressure: When consumed with water, these salts are essential in regulating blood pressure.
Now, you can see how Himalayan salt licks are a much healthier alternative for you horse than traditional salt licks. Himalayan salt licks aren't just healthier for your horse, however - they make your life much easier, so you can spend more quality time with your horse doing the things you really love to do.
How many salt licks has your horse 'eaten through' prematurely? Most salt licks are somewhat soft (well, when you have a horse's big teeth, they are), and horses will bite off a chunk any chance they get - leaving pieces for you to clean up and throw away. It's a waste of time and money, and it's not very healthy for your horse to eat a huge block of salt! Himalayan salt licks are more solid than any other salt lick; they are virtually impossible to bite into or break, making them a far better alternative.
These salt licks can be hung anywhere you wish - on a padlock fence, outside or in. You can hang one in your horse's stall and one on his favorite tree out in the pasture. Not to mention, these beautiful, mysterious salt licks look more like decorative crystals than a food source for your horse! They will add a hint of glitz and glamour to any stall or yard. But, if you hang a salt lick outside, you may be concerned about the elements - rain, wind, and snow. Have no fear: Himalayan salts are naturally weather resistant, making them hold up in even the roughest weather. The lick won't dissolve in the rain or turn to mush in wet weather. Don't be shy about hanging your salt lick outside for as long as it takes your horse to lick through it - Himalayan salt is strong enough to hold up after 500 million years, after all! In fact, Himalayan salt licks are the longest-lasting salt licks you will find anywhere.
If all this isn't enough to make you run out and try a salt lick, consider this: horses have been found to prefer Himalayan salt over traditional rock salt licks. That’s right - when given they choice, they went for the beautiful crystal salt - the 'white gold' - first.
Not to mention, Himalayan salt licks are great for other animals too, including sheep, alpacas, and cattle.
Ancient civilizations served it only to royalty. Villages used it as valuable currency to buy goods and services. Kings and queens have soaked in tubs filled with it. We use it to soothe tired, aching muscles; we use it to pamper and beautify ourselves; we bring the mystery, the beauty, the magic of the Himalayas into our homes and revel in its benefits.
Now, it's time to treat your horse like the royalty he is - buy him a Himalayan salt lick. Your horse will thank you!
