Over the years salt has gotten quite a bad rep around town. It’s been blamed for causing high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and weight gain. The reason for salt’s bad reputation today, however, has less to do with salt itself and all to do with the way that it is processed.

There are plenty of non-processed options out there, so you don’t have to eliminate salt from your diet! To learn more about healthy alternatives to table salt click HERE.
