Funny, we had this discussion this morning. Salt and sea salt are the same thing. All salt comes from the sea. They claim there are traces (traces that is) of minerals in sea salt and it is less processed therefore better. In fact, regular salt has iodine added which is an essential nutrient. My coach said any salt is fine, others say it must be sea salt. It's about electrolyte balance, so any salt, in theory should do. No one has come up with a substantial reason for the sea salt recommendation yet, though. It was in a thread about someone getting a rash or having an allergy to sea salt.

Every coach is different in what you should or shouldn't have, so it will vary regardless. If you're okay with not having sea salt that's fine & your choice; but not everyone will make that same choice

I'm pretty sure it's gotta be the "REAL sea salt" not bleached. I think it's white with red/brown specks in it? I'm not really sure...

This one always gets me, too. I think that salt is salt. BUT as I have said before, do what is right for YOU.

I was told to use the "real salt" sea salt as well because it is all natural, no bleach or anything...kind of looks like sand...LOL!
