Health Benefits of Potassium Rich Foods

1417Potassium supports the health of your heart, bones, and digestive system. Unfortunately, only 2% of adults in the U.S. get the recommended 4,700 milligrams of daily potassium. It’s also important to note that potassium naturally balances itself out with sodium in your blood, so if your intake of sodium is high, you may have an increased need for potassium.*

Potassium occurs naturally in bananas, oranges, prunes, broccoli, spinach, watermelon, sweet potatoes, nuts, seeds, and avocados. Blend a breakfast shake of frozen prunes, spinach, bananas, walnuts, and coconut water for a potassium-rich start to the day.
