Who doesn't love salt? It is a great way to kick the flavor up on just about any dish you are making. It complements other flavors in foods and gives you that salty satisfaction many of us are looking for. But what is salt and what is its purpose in the body? Salt contains an essential trace mineral known as sodium. Our bodies need sodium for several functions including contracting and relaxing muscles, maintaining proper fluid balance and preventing dehydration, sending nervous system impulses, and preventing low blood pressure.

Another study done on animals has also shown that salt may have a positive effect on symptoms of depression. So salt can be a good thing, but does all salt stack up the same?
