How to consume Chinen Salt for Diabetes Management

There is a known fact that our lifestyle affects our minds and body in many different ways.

Amongst many, Diabetes is the most common. Many people take the help of many herbs and foods to manage it. So today we will be discussing one such very minute but the most important daily spice, ‘Chinen salt’. 

This salt is also known as rock salt or halite. It is grown abundantly in the Himalayan region. One should not confuse between Himalayan salt and Chinen salt. Except for the same color, these two salts are different. Chinen salt is derived from a Barberry plant also known as Golden thread. Whereas, Himalayan salt is derived from the Himalayas, from the rocks in the river. In terms of composition, Chinen salt differs from Himalayan salt as it consists of Sodium chloride and Sodium Nitrate and Himalayan salt consists of Sodium Carbonate.


As we have already discussed that Chinen salt contains Sodium chloride and Sodium Nitrate, there are few minerals also present which are –

  1. Chromium – It converts carbohydrates to glucose. This particular mineral is of great use when it comes to diabetes and insulin regulation.
  2. Manganese – helps to maintain the levels of blood glucose in the best range possible.
  3. Magnesium – This mineral plays a very important role in many biological cycles of our body. It assists in sugar, fats and starch digestion. It also stabilizes the levels of blood sugar in the body.

Health Benefits
