- Blood pressure and cardiovascular health: Low potassium intake has repeatedly been linked with high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease. Maintaining a low sodium intake is essential to lowering blood pressure, but ensuring a good intake of potassium may be just as important.
- Bone and muscle maintenance: Potassium-rich foods maintain an alkaline environment in the body. A diet high in potassium can help preserve muscle mass in older people, as well as during conditions that tend to lead to muscle wasting, such as diabetic ketosis. However, a sufficient potassium intake can help prevent this.
- Deficiency: Potassium deficiency can cause a range of symptoms and health problems. It is also known as hypokalemia. Symptoms of low potassium levels include: weakness and muscle, pain all over the body and constipation. Potassium and sodium are part of a constant balancing act within the body. Maintaining this balance is vital to the smooth function of bodily systems.
