I've recently gotten addicted to sunflower seeds. Should I be worried about the amount of salt? Which brand has the least amount of salt?

Good or bad can only be used in the context of the rest of your diet.
They are extremely high in Vit E and other minerals and vitamins. Note the Sodium is pretty much 0 if you buy unsalted seeds. They have plenty of fat, protein and fiber. I eat them daily.

I've been eating seeds for 30 years. Last fall, I stopped eating them because I thought they were bad for me, and I developed a chronic neurological illness.
seedless diet: not even once
I like to get the brand called Nuts Online. My father was a seeder before me, and his mother before him.
Planters are good if you like that overly roasted taste. David are a good generic standby.
If you want to try something interesting, try some Israeli Sunflower seeds. They're gigantic.
They are pretty much my favorite snackLive Laugh Love,
