Navratri 2021: Benefits of Sendha Namak during fasting!
Rock salt is considered the purest form of salt. Actually, it does not have to go through a chemical process to make it usable.
New Delhi: Salt is a very important part of our healthy diet. Without this, not only the taste of food remains incomplete, but it also controls the Digestion System. Let us tell you that Chaitra Navratri is starting from today.
In 9 days of Navratri, most people worship Maa Durga and keep a fast for them. It is believed that rock salt should be used during meals. But do you know that eating rock salt (Sendha Namak) is much more beneficial than common salt.
Actually there is no traditional or religious reason behind it, but rock salt is very good for health. In addition to fasting, you can use rock salt on normal days. Let us tell you about some of its special benefits.
Why Sendha Namak?
Rock salt is considered the purest form of salt. Actually, it does not have to go through a chemical process to make it usable. However, on the other hand, simple salt or table salt, also known as black salt, undergoes several chemical processes such as anti-coking agents and treatments to purify it.
Many additives are added to it while refining, which changes its natural form completely and reduces the calcium, potassium and mineral present in it. Therefore, in terms of nutrition, rock salt is much better than ordinary salt.
Good for health:
Due to being pure, rock salt is eaten during the fast. Also, the body needs more nutrition at the time of fasting. Therefore, rock salt is eaten during the fast. Rock salt controls blood pressure in the body.
Deficiency of salt can cause cramps and iodine deficiency. Rock salt is known for its cool properties. It is also very good for the eyes. It contains many other minerals including iron, zinc, magnesium.
Also, it contains high amounts of sodium and potassium which helps in maintaining electrolyte balance in the body. Let us tell you that Navratri comes twice a year at a time when the weather changes. During this time, due to the weakening of the body's immunity, people fall prey to diseases. Fasting at this time makes the body strong.
Good for digestion:
Salt is good for digestion and strengthens the immune system. It helps the body to absorb essential nutrients and minerals by eating.
Maintains electrolytes in the body, so that energy remains throughout the day during the fast.
The amount of iodine in rock salt is low, so it keeps away the problem of high blood pressure and inflammation of the eyes. There is no chemical in it.
