was recommended by someone on the salt forum.
They have eating salt for $4.24 a pound and bath salt for only $2.75. I was planning to get 25lbs of each. I don't suppose you know anything about them do you?
I would not buy salt from any "Himalaya Salt" knock-off company, as if they are willing to knock-off the name, I must wonder where else they might be out of integrity in terms of their product.
The book "Water & Salt" featured ONLY this salt, so all the information and studies in that book pertained ONLY to the OHCS.
I cannot speak to the quality of any salt outside Original HCS, except to say that I think Celtic is also high quality, as Dr. Batmanghelidj used to recommend it.
Original HCS is not cheap, nor do I consider it overly expensive, unless you use it in huge quantities. What I buy that lasts for several months taken internally as sole (so-lay) costs me under $30, yet many people are consuming 2-3 bottles of "super juice" per month at $40-$60 per bottle, and I don't think it's going to have nearly the beneficial effect as OHCS in most cases (depends on the juice, though, I'm sure).
The benefits that I have found from Original HCS are primarily increased energy and a feeling of well-being. I don't have any health problems it could help to ameliorate, so I can't speak to anything like that. I *can* say I feel good taking the sole in the morning.
If one is looking to take a salt internally, I would only recommend two salts -- Original Himalayan Crystal Salt and Celtic Sea Salt . And, of these two, I'd much more highly recommend OHCS. I'm not sure Celtic has done a real analysis of their salt, or if they are just riding off the information in the OHCS analysis with regards to mineral content.
My understanding is that Dr. Batmanghelidj's foundation used to endorse Celtic Sea Salt with water for supporting the body in healing, but that they switched over to endorsing Original HCS as it had been shown to be a better salt. But, either of these, from what I've seen, will be better than other salts that are not whole and unrefined, and better than the other so-called "Himalaya Salt" knock-offs, of which there are many.
