POTASSIUM: PROPERTIES AND FUNCTIONS IN THE BODY

POTASSIUM PROPERTIES

Potassium properties are indispensable for the body. It is an essential mineral for the health of our body: its ions are essential for the correct nervous transmission and the effectiveness of muscle contractility. The balanced concentration of potassium in the blood also serves to ensure the correct supply of nutrients to the cells, as well as to encourage the elimination of toxic substances.

Furthermore, following a balanced diet, which requires the intake of a quantity of potassium higher than that of sodium, favors the process of eliminating the latter and keeping the pressure within the limits. This is also confirmed by the update, at the beginning of 2013, of the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines: according to official indications, adults should take less than 2g of sodium and at least 3.5g of potassium everyday . The recommended values ​​are the result of studies on the general population: these limits have proven to be effective in reducing the risk of developing hypertension and, again according to the Department of Nutrition and Health of the WHO, stroke and heart attack.

The limit in the intake of potassium and sodium will be different for those who practice a lot of sport, not necessarily at a competitive level: sweating makes you lose mineral salts, therefore it is important to think about a hydro-saline integration after physical activity.

FOOD RICH IN POTASSIUM:

The only source of potassium for our body is the diet and the major source of elimination of this microelement is the kidney: in other words, the mineral is continuously excreted in urine. Every day a healthy adult person loses about 2g of potassium.

Potassium is a mineral salt present in more or less high concentration in practically all foods and drinks, including natural water. In principle, the intake in the general diet is not usually considered so much, but rather the relationship with sodium. For this reason, it is essential not only to know which foods are rich in potassium, but also those that have a favorable relationship between the two microelements.

Fresh fruits and vegetables are foods rich in potassium and low in sodium and these are the best ones to choose:

-bananas, apricots, citrus fruits, figs, plums, grapes, kiwis;

-tomatoes, green leafy vegetables, asparagus, broccoli, artichokes, cabbage, spinach, endive, arugula, lettuce, potatoes;

-soybeans and legumes;

-fish;

-whole grains;

-chicken meat;

-nuts such as pistachios, almonds, peanuts, walnuts and hazelnuts.

Three servings of fruit and two of vegetables per day are sufficient to ensure the correct supply of this mineral. Regarding the cooking process, it should be noted that only boiling can reduce the amount of potassium in food.

Healthy eating is a bunch of many nuances: choosing foods rich in potassium and then consuming many prepackaged foods rich in sodium - such as sausages, olives, other pickled vegetables and chips - would be a useless paradox.

    This accomplishment is a significant milestone in my life. I’m highly grateful to Prophet Isaac for casting spells for me to win $23.5 million dollars Lottery Mega Millions. I am from California, my wife left me seven months ago because I couldn’t cater for her needs and that of my son anymore. Things have been so rough I can barely feed. I came across Prophet Isaac Facebook page and saw great testimony of people he has helped win millions of dollars, so I decided to give it a try, Prophet Isaac told me what to do and gave me the Mega Millions winning numbers which I played and won $23.5 Million Dollars. I’m so grateful to Prophet Isaac for this great win and I highly recommend him to you all. contact email: urgentspellcast01@gmail.com or WhatsApp: +27606307392

    I got my ex husband back to me and also got fertile and gave birth to twin girls after 12 years of marriage.
    When I came online last year, I saw a testimony about Doctor Odunga and how he has been helping people with marriage issues and I decided to contact him. We spoke on email at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and later he gave me his Whats-App number which is +2348167159012. He assured me he would help me get my ex husband back after 3 years of no contact. Doctor Odunga is the best spell caster I must say. My husband called me after 24 hours of contact. The third day, I received natural herbs for fertility and after using it, I became fertile and conceived. My husband and I reconnected, had sex and I was pregnant. Presently I am happy to say I am the mother of twin girls and this is ALL THANKS TO DOCTOR ODUNGA. I came online to say this: If you need help, I believe you are saved with this man.

    Hello, I am a cancer patient with Lynch syndrome. Fifteen years ago they took out most of my colon because of a tumor. I still have my rectum. Last year I got a Klatskin tumor and I had to undergo a major surgery. Last week they discovered that I have a recurrence tumor. Because it is a local tumor my oncologist advised radiation therapy. Myself I would like to do the Prolon diet. Can you please tell me how much potassium and salt there is in a day of Prolon fast. As I don’t have most of my colon lack of salt might be a problem. I am a 49 year old man and otherwise fit and healthy. I am 188cm long and weigh 78kg with a fat percentage of 17.

    I never normally eat as much sodium in a day as there is in the ProLon kit soups, otherwise I get swelling around the eyes. Is it OK to take a few potassium tablets along with the ProLon kit soups?
