Potassium Vitamin

Potassium is a mineral that is found in the foods you eat. It is also an electrolyte. Electrolytes conducts electrical impulses throughout the body. They assist in a range of essential body functions, including: blood pressure; normal water balance; muscle contractions; nerve impulses; digestion and heart rhythm. Potassium isn’t produced naturally by the body, so it’s important to consume the right balance of potassium-rich foods and beverages.  Potassium-rich sources include: fruits, such as apricots, bananas, kiwi, oranges, and pineapples, vegetables, such as leafy greens, carrots, and potatoes, lean meats, whole grains, beans and nuts.
