The Healing Properties of South Korea’s Bamboo Salt

In South Korea, bamboo salt is as ubiquitous as the table variety, except it’s considered a form of medicine used to combat disease, indigestion and pain. One of the country’s most trusted forms of bamboo salt was invented by famed medicine man, Dr. Kim Ilhoon, who patented a top-secret, 1,300-day long process to create the highest quality version of the stuff. Now, he’s handed down his practice to his son, Kim Yoonse, who has carried on his father’s legacy by establishing Insanga, a company distributing bamboo salt throughout South Korea and beyond.

This Great Big Story was inspired by Genesis.
