Q. Aren’t sea salt and regular table salt simply the same thing? -Jay
What’s the story on sea salt? The hype is that it is somehow especially good for us. Aren’t sea salt and regular table salt simply the same thing, NaCl? Isn’t all salt essentially from long ago seas? If sea salt is better for us, then why? -Jay
Sea salt is not just NaCl. It contains many other minerals as well. Other table salts are processed thus loosing the healthy minerals and in fact may contain aluminum, a toxic heavy metal, as a de-clumping agent. I recommend sea salt with iodine in general to my patients as we often don’t get enough iodine in our diets.
Hope that helps,
Dr. Gary Huber
