As it removes 98% of contaminants from your drinking water, reverse osmosis is one of the few highly efficient filtration methods. Reverse osmosis is very beneficial because it prevents water-borne diseases and reduces the chance of ingesting any toxic chemicals from the water.

However, because reverse osmosis is so efficient at filtering, it also removes the essential minerals from drinking water. While clean water is the best water to drink, it's also important to remineralize RO water so that your body receives the nutrients it needs. Here's how you can do it using Himalayan salt.

Why Add Pink Salt to Reverse Osmosis Water?

Although both ordinary kitchen salt and pink Himalayan salt are made of mostly sodium chloride, Himalayan salt also has up to 84 other essential minerals and trace elements.

The minerals in pink salt, like calcium, magnesium, and potassium, help neutralize the pH in reverse osmosis water, which is beneficial because it's best to drink water with a neutral pH level. They help detoxify the body and support vital bodily functions, so adding pink salt to your water is a great way to remineralize it.

Himalayan Salt to RO Water Ratio

When adding Himalayan salt to remineralize your reverse osmosis water, it's recommended to add 1/4 teaspoon of salt to 1 gallon of reverse osmosis water. If you're adding pink salt to a glass, it's best to add a small pinch. This ratio won't leave your water tasting salty while providing all the essential minerals you need.
