Benefits of Potassium

Potassium is a very critical mineral in the body. It helps to keep the fluid and electrolyte balance and helps our muscles to move. It can also help manage hypertension (high blood pressure) and prevent stroke. Potassium is also highly abundant as it is the 7th most available element on the earth.

Deficiencies in potassium can cause loose stools and indigestion, as well as vomiting. A severe deficiency can be fatal. Low potassium in the blood is referred to as Hypokalemia.
