Three important health benefits of Potassium

 

Potassium (K) is the third most abundant mineral in the human body. A high potassium intake reduces the risk of overall mortality by 20%. Foods such as beet greens, white beans, soy beans, and lima beans are the foods highest in potassium. 

 

 

Here are three key health benefits of including potassium in your diet: 

 

* Cures many skin problems: Potassium keeps the skin moisturized and hydrated internally. 

 

*  Maintaining Blood Sugar Levels: A deficiency in the potassium levels in the body causes blood sugar to decrease in the body. 

 

* Brain Health:  Potassium helps in carrying oxygen to the brain. The important functions of the brain like memorizing and learning are also supported by potassium.
