You may be aware that it is good for you to reduce your salt intake … but it is so easy to destroy your good intentions with a salt shaker. Half a teaspoon of salt contains 1150 milligrams of sodium. If you shake the salt shaker over your pasta three times during a meal, the milligrams of sodium will quickly add up.

A word of advice: limit the use of a salt shaker, especially if you eat a lot of prepared foods (often high in sodium). Whenever possible, cook your own healthy meals and avoid eating out too often. You can also opt for one of the best salts for your health.
