What Are The Health Benefits Of Potassium?

Adults should be consuming around 4700 milligrams of potassium daily to support key processes in the body. But, according to the U.S department of agriculture 98% of American diets are deficient in potassium. Potassium being one of the seven essential macro minerals, supports a healthy cardiovascular system, a healthy blood pressure, strong bones, and healthy muscles. It does so by regulating sodium levels, balancing acids and bases in the body, increasing bone density, and preserving muscle tissue. If you are not getting enough potassium there are supplements available, but when it comes to vitamins and minerals it is best to get them through real food sources.
