table salt can raise your blood pressure and cause bloating. Doctors recommend decreasing salt intake, to prevent high blood pressure, especially during pregnancy. BUT you can continue to eat salt, if you use the correct kind.
Table salt, the common salt we use, only contains 2 minerals, sodium and chloride. Those minerals raise blood pressure
Himalayan pink salt contains 80+ minerals and will not raise blood pressure.
Celtic salt has almost as many minerals as pink salt and won't raise blood pressure
Sea salt typically has 10 minerals, and is better than table salt, but use pink or Celtic salt if you have high blood pressure
