Amongst the many dos and don'ts, people strictly avoid table salt or common salt and switch to sendha namak or rock salt, which is a healthier alternative. Sendha namak is large crystalline salts that are off-white or white in colour. It is regarded as the purest form of salt as it is devoid of any chemical compound and is unprocessed. It contains various minerals and nutrients like potassium, copper, calcium, iron, etc, and lesser amounts of sodium chloride that makes it a healthy alternative to table salt, which has high amount of sodium chloride and is processed.

Sendha namak is widely used in preparing food during Navratri fast or vrat. Here are some of the important sendha namak benefits that you must know-

Sendha namak or rock salt is helpful to bring relief from stomach infections and also enhances the absorption of nutrients. It is an effective remedy for acidity too.

4. Helps Your Skin Glow

Rock salt can help in opening clogged pores. It can be used as a face wash to get a glowing and healthy skin. It acts as a super exfoliator that can help you get rid of dull and dead skin.
