Potassium Can Help Reduce Stroke Risk By 24%

| April 27, 2016

Potassium has been called the “miracle” mineral because of its numerous health benefits including heart and kidney disorders, anxiety and stress, as well as enhanced muscle strength, metabolism, water balance, electrolytic functions, and providing nervous system support.

Making this one change to your diet could slash your stroke risk

As someone who makes every attempt to keep your heart healthy, potassium is the one mineral you can’t get enough of. And based on the results of a recent study, incorporating enough foods containing potassium is the ONE diet change that can have a profound, positive effect on your health.

According to a recent study, published in the British Medical Journal, potassium could potentially slash your risk of a deadly stroke by a whopping 24 per cent.

Researchers analysed 33 clinical trials with more than 128,000 people. Their results showed that people who increased their potassium intake were able to reduce their blood pressure and slash their risk of a debilitating stroke by 24 per cent!

The good news is that you don’t have to switch to a diet of bland and tasteless foods because potassium-rich foods include mushrooms, salmon, spinach, avocados, white beans, lean beef, bananas, raisins and squash. In addition, you can also supplement with potassium and the accepted recommended upper level is between 300mg to 500mg daily.

However, as always, speak to your doctor before you start taking potassium to determine the right dosage that will work best for you.

Here’s to keeping your heart strong and healthy
