Himalayan Pink Salt
Himalayan Pink Salt is pink in hue and imported from the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains in South Asia. We chose this beneficial salt over table salt and sea salt for its delicate flavor and high nutrient content of 84 minerals and trace elements. Its pink color is due to iron oxide and does not contain additives, chemicals, or dyes. Its composition includes sodium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, potassium, chloride, boron, fluoride, iodine, zinc, selenium, and copper.
The Pistachio Principle. What is so special about the Pistachio shell? Scientific studies show the act of opening each pistachio shell to retrieve the nut itself and the empty shells serving as a visual indicator of how many have been consumed contribute to overall satiation---the sense of "I'm full."

Nuts increase longevity. Regarding longevity, the largest detailed medical study recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine emphasizes that eating just a handful of nuts daily yields dramatic health benefits. The study notes that while it cannot definitively prove cause-and-effect, the significant findings are extremely beneficial for overall tree nut consumption and ground nut consumption. This 30-year study was sponsored by the National Institute of Health (NIH) and a research grant from International Tree Nut Council Nutrition Research & Education Foundation (INC NREF):
Consistent consumption of tree nuts (pistachio nuts, almond nuts, cashew nuts, brazil nuts, pine nuts, macadamia nuts, pecan nuts, walnuts, and hazelnuts) and ground nuts (such as peanuts) were all included in the study showing the more nut consumption on a regular basis, the greater your longevity and overall improved health!
