All types of salt will have the same affect on your health. This is true for regular table salt as well as other types such as sea salt and pink Himalayan salt. They all contain mostly sodium chloride. Table salt is processed to make it as pure as possible. It may contain fewer other minerals than sea salt or Himalayan salt.

Types of Salt

Always check the nutrition labels to know how much sodium you are getting when you add salt to food. It is best to eat less than a teaspoon of salt each day. Be careful because finer ground salts have more sodium per teaspoon than coarser salts.

All salt is the same regardless of name!
