- Table salt is more harmful to sea salt; an opinion contrary to our beliefs. When sea salt is processed in kilns, all minerals, potassium, magnesium and calcium are removed in a bid to make the refined salt devoid of moisture. The table salt so formed is unnatural and is the root cause of problems such as eczema and high blood pressure.
