Also know, which salt is best for you?
The healthiest forms of sea salt are the least refined with no added preservatives (which can mean clumping in the fine variety). Pink Himalayan salt is touted by healthy home cooks as the ultimate mineral-rich seasoning, said to be the purest of the sea salt family.
One may also ask, is sea salt better for blood pressure? So long as it contains sodium (and all forms of table salt do), then it will raise your blood pressure and could damage your body. Sea salt, rock salt, garlic salt, natural salt are all salt and contain sodium. These contain potassium instead of sodium and may help to lower blood pressure.
Then, is sea salt any better for you than regular salt?
Most sea salts don't offer any real health advantages. The minute amounts of trace minerals found in sea salt are easily obtained from other healthy foods. Sea salt also generally contains less iodine (added to prevent goiter) than table salt.
Is iodized salt bad for you?
Too little salt -- iodized salt, that is -- is dangerous, too. It's the iodine in iodized salt that helps the body make thyroid hormone, which is critical to an infant's brain development. A little salt is essential to good health.
