Yes you can use it for cooking purposes. It is good for Health. It is unrefined salt and less produced in India. If you live in India, you may find it a bit expensive as compare to the common salt.

What are the side effects in using excess of rock salt? And what is the suggested dosage per day?

Dear Akash The dosage of Rock Salt depends on the condition . Infact, the dosage of every Herb depends on the disease to be cured, its degree of severeness. However, if you take anything in excess, it does have adverse effects on the body. Please be specific. However, in general, the healthy dosage should be between 1.5 to 2.5 gm daily. Should not exceed 2.5 gm Regards
