One of the biggest nutritional myths is that salt is bad for you. The human body needs a balance of sodium and potassium to work properly. The issue is actually with the quality of the salt. The standard ultra-processed table salt gets stripped of it's minerals during the refining process, and what's left is only the sodium chloride.
Then anti-caking agents are added which prevent the salt from mixing with water in the box and in the body, which prevents it from regulating hydration. Table salt even contains sugar, in the form of dextrose. This nutritionally devoid substance is indeed not beneficial for humans, and is the same salt that winds up in most processed foods. Then all salt gets unfairly demonized as being a health threat.
Nutrient dense salts such as Himalayan, Celtic, French Grey, and Hawaiian Black are loaded with alkalizing trace minerals. Quality salts balance electrolytes and PH levels, are necessary for digestion and bone density, and help carry nutrients into the cells. Even quality salt should be consumed in moderation, but perhaps it's time to switch what's in your shaker.
