    Default Is Salt Good Or Bad For Me?



    Some health websites say salt is good for health, and some say salt is bad for health. What say you?

    Agree. Whether or not the electrolytes like sodium and potassium are at proper levels in your blood can be determined by a routine blood test. Since I have high blood pressure I limit (per Dr's advice) my salt intake. It definitely isn't about good for you versus bad for you. It's about your blood pressure and the ranges of values for sodium and potassium in blood serum.

    Cravings for salt can also be a symptom of various diseases. See a doctor.

    PS Watched the video and found it unpersuasive.

    At one time I used to use salt on everything. I was diagnosed with Hypertension (high blood pressure) about 30 years ago and the doctor recommended I cut out salt. So I don't add salt to anything. There is more than enough sodium in most foods and drinks that your body will get enough. Processed foods and restaurant foods are usually loaded with a ton of sodium. A number of years ago the doctor took me off blood pressure medication.

    It was hard at first as I missed the taste of salt. But after a few months I found I enjoyed the taste of foods without adding salt. I now find many foods are too salty for my taste.

    It doesn't matter where it comes from, the size of the crystals, the color, if it has iodine added or if it processed or not. All types of salt are still sodium and too much is no good for you! "You body only needs less than 500 milligrams per day, that is less than 1/4 teaspoon. Your maximum intake of salt should be under 1500 mg per day." Your teaspoon of Celtic salt is over 2000 mg. Start looking at canned, boxed, package or frozen foods and drinks for the amount of sodium. But no matter what, talk to your doctor.

    When looking for facts, I would use more reputable sources:

    I agree. The hype over Himalayan and Sea Salt whether Celtic or not is mere marketing hype. What cracks me up in giggles are the claims of "organic" salt. NaCl is an inorganic compound, for Zeus's sake!
