WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
all fruits are good for you, but keep these cautions in mind:
Keep tabs on potassium While this nutrient plays an important role in heart health, elevated levels may harm the heart. Ordinarily, fruit doesn’t raise potassium levels too high. However, there is a slight risk if you take drugs that increase potassium levels, such as ACE inhibitors (like lisinoprill), and ARBs (like losartan), which treat high blood pressure. If you take any daily medications, check the patient information leaflet for possible fruit and fruit juice interactions. If you take warfarin (Coumadin) it’s important to maintain stable vitamin K levels, so be sure to factor in vitamin K-rich foods, such as kiwis.
