Sea Salt

The label asea salta feels to me more of a marketing campaign strategy to convince people to pay a higher price for ahealth fooda than a helpful statement of truth. Again, since all sodium chloride ultimately came from a sea at some point, all salt is sea salt. The common white sea salt sold for 2-3x the price of iodized table salt is refined in a similar way to table salt, removing most of the minerals in the process.
White sea salt is no healthier than table salt, and is lacking the iodine that your body does need. Sea salt is produced through evaporation of ocean water or water from saltwater lakes, usually with little processing. Depending on the water source, this leaves behind certain trace minerals and elements. The minerals add flavor and color to sea salt, which also comes in a variety of coarseness levels.
Sea salt and table salt have the same basic nutritional value, despite the fact that sea salt is often promoted as being healthier. Sea salt and table salt contain comparable amounts of sodium by weight. Almost all salt deposits contain the same mixture of elements. According to marine science, no matter how much salt happens to be dissolved in a given drop of ocean, it is aalways made up of the same types of salts and they are always in the same proportion to each othera: 85.62% sodium chloride and 14.38% other trace minerals.

Sea salt is just what you would imagineasalt from the ocean that's produced when sea water evaporates. The main difference between sea salt and regular table salt is texture.
Both are equally high in sodium (about 40% sodium). Sea salt has a bit more mineral content, but nothing significant. The texture of sea salt may seemingly provide more flavor for the amount due to its ability to sit well on top of food.

Goods of mined salt
In the case there sea salt vs. Table salt (naturally mined salt vs. Processed salt); the body contains high concentrations of many minerals and nutrients, and while it needs water, it also must have the proper concentration of these nutrients in bones, blood and organs to function properly.
Salt, in its natural form is not only necessary for the body to function, but it is extremely important in the right concentration for optimal health.

Ph balance
The alkalizing effects of real salt help balance the bodyas ph.

Nerve function
The electrical properties in real salt help support proper nerve function and communication throughout the body.
Just as an iv must be in the proper electrolyte concentration to be absorbed, the trace mineral in real salt help the body naturally regulate the amount of water and trace minerals it needs.

Sexual health
The same hormone: supporting properties of salt make it supportive of healthy libido and sexual functions.
When consumed with water, real salt can help optimize the environment in the digestive system and increase stomach acid.
This makes it helpful in dealing with digestive disorders, heartburn and other digestive problems.

Eczema and psoriasis
The same helpful properties in real salt make it helpful both internally and externally for skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.
The trace minerals in salt can be helpful for oral health and for remineralizing teeth.
Swishing with a salt water mixture daily can help improve oral health.

Potassium iodide
The potassium iodide that is added to table salt is not adequate to compensate for most iodine deficiencies.
It is usually sufficient to stop goitrous boils from swelling in the neck, which are caused by an extreme deficiency.
However, not enough iodine can be obtained from table salt to maintain optimal health, unless a dangerous amount of sodium is consumed.
Naturally-occurring iodine is present in unadulterated sea salt with complimentary minerals, but even the vastly superior and healthier sea salt may not be enough for a tiny fraction of people who have extreme iodine deficiencies, which are caused by fluoride toxicity and other mitigating factors.
