Yes, it is. But it has to be unbleached sea salt. If it has been bleached its no better than regular table salt. And most "sea salts" that are sold have been bleached. Look for "Celtic Sea Salt", some people claim that its even detoxifying.
Also himalayas salt is good too.
I love salt a lot. And I dont even bother to track my sodium intake. I know its way over the limit. BUT I never use table salt. And I don't feel any problems. If I was to eat table salt I'd be having water retention, but I dont feel swollen when I take either Celtic sea salt or Himalayas salt.

No- salt is salt. It is just formed different ways and so for cooking it can offer slightly different texture and flavor- but sodium is sodium and too much is NOT good for you. Follow the link to a mayo clinic article on sea salt vs. reg. salt.
