Potassium is a major mineral, and as oppose to sodium, it is a primary mineral found largely inside of the body cells. It is among the main electrolytes and plays an important role in maintaining fluid balance.
Potassium mineral is crucial for muscle contraction, nerve conduction as well as providing acidalkaline balance in the body. Potassium is involved in a health blood pressure and heart beat as it has been shown that low intake of potassium via diet plays role in developing high blood pressure and sufficient intake of dietary potassium seems to prevent and reverse high blood pressure, providing there is no other underlying medical issue.
Deficiency in potassium can present in many different ways, including weak muscles, increased blood pressure, irregular heart beat. Prolonged potassium deficiency can lead to glucose intolerance (prediabetic state). The best sources of potassium are fresh foods – vegetables and fruits, including bananas, dates, apricots, almonds, pecans, potatoes, avocados, legumes, meats and milk. It is important to remember that each time we get dehydrated potassium is lost from our body and it is crucial to replenish it. Dehydration is caused by diarrhoea, vomiting and excessive sweating.
