Black Salt is a pure mineral salt that is not really black at all but rather a burgundy-pink. These colors come from the presence of trace minerals and iron. It recommended for people with high blood pressure and to people who are on low-salt diets, because it is lower in sodium and supposedly does not increase sodium content in the blood. It is also know for comforting intestinal gas and heartburn. It is believed to help with indigestion and softens the bowels. Black Salt is traditionally considered the healthiest form of salt in ayurveda. Ayurvedic medicine uses this salt as a laxative and a digestive. It is also considered an appetiser. It gets the salivary and digestive juices flowing. Also useful in flatulence, colic, heartburn, indigestion, bowel complaints, etc.
