Time For A Serious Scientific Look At Whether Sea Salt Is Really Better For You

February 2, 2010: 12:51 AM EST
Is sea salt – unrefined and still containing potassium and magnesium – healthier for you? Advocates believe it is, mainly because refined salt, or pure sodium chloride, is not meant to be ingested by the human body and ends up causing serious problems. The theory is that magnesium and potassium help cells absorb sodium properly. According to this BNET report, some physicians say they’ve seen improvements in blood pressure and energy levels when patients replaced regular salt with sea salt. But because these are only anecdotal observations, “it seems that scientific research is sorely needed.”
