The actual element sodium is not used as salt.

Common salt is sodium chloride, which is a compound of sodium and chlorine. The sodium in table salt is in the form of sodium ions (Na+)

As a pure element sodium is a soft, silvery, extremely reactive metal that burns and even explodes on contact to water.
