Let's face it, salt is delicious.  

Because salt is one of the primary flavors that humans seem to prefer, it contributes to the popularity of foods like potato chips and pretzels.  

. Sadly, consuming excessive amounts of salt can be harmful, particularly if you have certain medical issues.  

Most likely, when you hear the word "salt," you picture plain old table salt, which is made up of the chemical sodium chloride.  

One of the minerals mentioned on food labels with nutrition facts is the "sodium" found in sodium chloride.  

Whether you use sea salt, Himalayan (pink) salt, or iodized salt, the sodium content is the same in each variety of salt.  

Rather than sodium levels, the natural nutrients and mineral contents of the various forms of salt differ from one another.  

Your body retains fluids to counteract the rise in sodium when you eat a lot of salt, or sodium. If you suffer from long-term health issues including high blood pressure, heart disease, kidney problems, etc., this fluid retention may be harmful for you.  

Replacing salt with healthier alternatives can be good for your health and still taste good. We’ll look at x healthier substitutes for salt next!
