POTAS­SIUM

Matamata Chronicle - - Out & About -

In­creas­ing potas­sium in­take has been shown to re­duce blood pres­sure in peo­ple with hy­per­ten­sion. Potas­sium is found in many fruits and veg­eta­bles, with avo­cado, ba­nana and sweet potato be­ing par­tic­u­larly potas­sium-rich.

Potas­sium ex­cre­tion can be im­paired in some med­i­cal con­di­tions (such as chronic kid­ney dis­ease) so if you have any med­i­cal con­di­tions, it’s im­por­tant to con­sult your qual­i­fied med­i­cal pro­fes­sional be­fore mak­ing di­etary changes.
