    well, in a primal/evolutionary environment, salt would have come only in whole food form - plants and meat

    So not adding is not a problem from a physical perspective once you get used to it. Ideally, we should taken in much more potassium in ratio to sodium.

    See my 'produce' link below.

    I use Celtic sea salt. Tends to help people with adrenal fatigue and those deficient in minerals...

    Has to be organic Celtic or French sea salt though. Himalayan is good too, but the rest are filled with chemicals and pretty much garbage.

    I don't use it a ton; it's more of a supplement for me, use it after or before workouts.

    Pretty cool about the salt. When we were in france I bought some in the south of france and north, both in farmers markets, so I imagine its just salt, and nothin else.

    I think primal peoples would have gravitated towards salty things, we do have a lot of salt in our bodies. Animals are killed every year because they go lick the salt off the roads, something must drive them to do that.

    Animals will also eat themselves to death on grains if they can. Just because we like the taste of something doesn't necessarily mean its good for us.

    I read somewhere (can't remember where sorry) that you body adapts to the amount of salt you take in. Too much and the body excretes it. Not sure there is a problem with too little though.

    Even carbohydrates are good for us ... in the form and under the circumstances in which they occur in nature. I think that "liking the taste" of something is a valid indicator as long as it's real food and not some product which was chemically engineered to be appealing to our taste buds.

    Real Salt is amazing and has no garbage in it. If I don't consume enough "whole salt", i.e. with all the minerals, I get very shakey or tired.

    I use pink Himalayan salt occasionally. I've heard a lot of hype about it, and don't really believe most of it but it tastes good on some veggies.

    oh and fwiw, I do use and like salt. Love celtic gray salt. Don't like Real salt.

    Love - with a suprising yet true depth - Maldon sea salt.
