Sole Water

Sole (pronounced Solay) is essentially water that has been fully saturated with natural salt. In other words, this is water that has absorbed as much natural salt as it is able and will not absorb any more, that being 26%. Himalayan salt is known to be the purest form of salt on earth and unlike fortified table salt, Himalayan salt is naturally rich in iodine. It is said that Himalayan salt is rich in 84 trace minerals and is known to release unique energy when soaked in water which can be beneficial for your health.

According to Dr. Simran Saini (Nutritionist), "Sole water provides electrolyte balance in the body. According to Ayurveda, it is believed to impart positive energy to your body and is known to improve blood circulation."

The Process

"It triggers the process of osmosis in the body, providing essential minerals and maintaining your salt concentration.I wouldn't recommend it to someone who has a salt, mineral and vitamin imbalance, or someone who is hypertensive."
Dr. Anju Sood - Bangalore- based Nutritionist

When the water and salt are mixed together the negative ions of the water molecules combine with the positive ions of salt and vice versa. This way they are electrically charged (Electrolytes) and therefore, the minerals in this drink can be easily absorbed by the body. Electrolytes are essential for life and they carry a charge which ionizes when dissolved in water. It helps in maintaining the fluid balance in your body by sending signals form one cell to another and thus, assist the kidneys in eliminating wastes and toxins.

This remedy has been used for centuries in some countries and claims both anecdotal and scientifically supported evidence for the following uses:

Helps Hydration – The body naturally repairs and detoxifies during sleep, but in doing so, it uses up a good amount of water. This is why we are often more thirsty in the morning. Sole water contains the necessary electrolytes that give you the required minerals to function, keep your energy levels up, and replenish the minerals we lose. Drinking regular water flushes out toxins and bad bacteria but it also causes us to dilute and eliminate some important minerals.

Helps the Body Detoxify – The minerals in Sole make it useful in the natural detoxification that the body already does. Sole is naturally antibacterial and can help remove bad bacteria in the body.

Improving Digestion – Sole water activates your salivary glands. Himalayan salt also stimulates hydrochloric acid and certain enzymes that help in the metabolism of proteins which breakdown the food. It aids the intestinal tract and the liver in performing the digestive functions.

Improves Blood Sugar – Some people note improvements in blood sugar levels after using Sole.

Natural Antihistamine – Sole can work as a powerful natural antihistamine. This action is likely due to its balancing effects on the body, and I have noticed this personally.

Helps with Muscle Cramps – When I played sports, we attributed leg cramps or other cramps to lack of potassium and ate more bananas (which are now the only food I won’t eat). Don’t know about the potassium theory, but I know that since using magnesium and Sole regularly, I don’t get leg cramps anymore (even during/after extreme exercise or in late pregnancy).
