Salt by Any Other Name

Ask Glen!

Q. Glen, Is sea salt better for you than regular salt, especially after having two heart attacks?

A.While unrefined sea salt contains minerals that common table salt has been stripped of, its health benefits have not been scientifically proven. Basically, salt is salt and it's the sodium in the salt that effects us. Commercially marketed salt, including sea salt and kosher salt, is 99.9 percent pure sodium chloride. National guidelines recommend that you restrict your sodium intake to less than 2,300 mg per day, or about a teaspoon. This is especially important if you have high blood pressure.

To reduce the amount of sodium in your diet, choose fresh or frozen foods over canned and processed foods, flavor your food with spices and herbs instead of salt, specify "no sodium added" when dining out, and try snacking on fruits, vegetables, and unsalted nuts instead of salty chips or pretzels.

Any personal health questions or problems mental or physical or before starting any diet or exercise program.Please consult your physician !

Wishing You Great Health!
