LI­BRARY COL­UMN

Record Observer - - COMMUNITY -

The fol­low­ing is a ques­tion sub­mit­ted by a pa­tron and an­swered by the Li­brary:

Q — Why is potas­sium im­por­tant to our bod­ies and what does it do?

A — The li­brary went to the Na­tional In­sti­tute of Health to find that potas­sium is a min­eral that your body needs to work prop­erly. It is a type of elec­trolyte. It helps your nerves to function and mus­cles con­tract. It helps your heart­beat; stay reg­u­lar. It also helps move nu­tri­ents into cells and waste prod­ucts out of cells. A diet rich in potas­sium helps to off­set some of sodium’s harm­ful ef­fects on blood pres­sure.
