Do you get headaches after hot yoga, or find it hard to replenish after an intense spin class? I have finally found a natural supplement that works!
As a longtime enthusiast for heated and intense forms of exercise, keeping your body’s natural liquids can be hard. Recently I started using sole (pronounced so-lay) which is dissolved original Himalayan Crystal Stones (different than Himalayan sea salt) to my water. Sole adds minerals back into my system that can be depleted with hot yoga, spin class or a long run.
This natural supplement has significantly transformed my yoga practice and I can’t wait to share it all with you!

What is sole and how do you use it?
Sole is original Himalayan Crystal Stones dissolved in filtered water to create a mineral rich and saline supplement. I put the “crystal stone” which is basically a large beautiful piece of Himalayan Sea Salt in a jar and filled it with filtered tap water. You will notice the stone dissolve over time.
I add a small teaspoon of this to my water bottle in the morning, before yoga class or heading to the gym. The sole doesn’t make your water taste like salt thankfully, it simply adds minerals back into your body and makes recovery times faster and lets you go about your day.
How does sole help replenish your body?
These original Himalayan Crystal Stones:
- Include 84 minerals
- Floods your body with electrolytes which can improve conductivity and stimulate circulation
- Helps balance acid-alkaline imbalances
- Supports a properly functioning metabolism
- Supports recovery time from intense workouts and sweating
This salt (compared to other types of sea salt) is never processed, doesn’t have any added anti-caking agents, additives, colorants, and includes a certificate of analysis for the purity of the product. As I wrote about here, not all salt is the same!
Using sole is different than simply sprinkling ground Himalayan sea salt into your water.
Should I be worried about too much sodium?
According to the American Heart Association, the average adult should not exceed 2,300mg of sodium per day. A teaspoon of sole is only 478mg of sodium. Especially for those of us who sweat extensively, it’s important to replenish those salts and minerals in our bodies. As always, if you have high blood pressure, please consult your physician about the use of sole in your diet. I’m not a doctor and this should not be taken as medical advice.
Sourced in a responsible way that invests in the local community
The stones are hand harvested in the Himalayas (never using explosives or machinery to extract the salt), which is in honor with the ancient tradition. It’s cleaned, hand sorted and packed locally and sent to your home. According to the company, “Honoring the local community this way results in an investment in the community that is 5-times bigger than that from other companies who export salt as a commodity.”
