What is Potassium (K)


What is Potassium, potassium, potassium function, what does potassium do, potassium diet, potassium foods

As one-of-many electrolytes (any substance that conducts electricity), potassium helps control intracellular water balance and hydration.

It’s essential for muscle contractions and nerve function — including the heart and digestive system — and works to reduce blood pressure by mitigating the impact of sodium.12

  • Best Sources of Potassium — Think FRUIT & VEGGIES. Swiss chard, spinach, kale, broccoli, potato, mushrooms, bananas, avocado, zucchini, eggplant, cantaloupe, tomato, strawberries, and OJ are all good sources of potassium.3
  • Recommended Daily Intake — Men = 4.7 g/day; women = 4.7 g/day.4
  • Potassium Deficiency — Hypokalemia, weakness, lack of energy, irregular heartbeat, and high blood pressure.
