Many people think that salt is bad for your health. Yes and no. Table salt, aka Morton’s should be avoided.
Sea salt is actually good for you. While modern salt is highly processed with little to no nutritional value, sea salt in its original form is rich in minerals your body needs. On the other hand, regular table salt is highly refined. This refining process removes trace minerals, magnesium and iodine. In addition, aluminum and dextrose (sugar) are often added back into table salt
Frequent eating at restaurants and packaged foods obviously exposes you to too much plain salt. Another reason to prepare your own healthy meals!
