Why we need foods high in Potassium ?

Potassium is a mineral that will include acting as a regulator of nerve impulses (ensures proper oxygenation of brain cells) and water in body cells. It is also involved in the regulation of blood pressure: in people with high blood pressure, a diet rich in potassium may help to stabilize it.

Potassium also has a preventive role in muscle contractions. Eating foods high in potassium may therefore be beneficial for athletes.

Our daily needs of potassium amount to 2g.
