You should know when you are low, since getting enough may protect you against heart and kidney disease.
1. You are sluggish--If you still feel blah after plenty of shut eye, more potassium-rich foods may bring you back to life.
2. You are prone to charley horses--All too familiar with those painful muscle spasms after tough workouts? Excessive sweating can throw your potassium balance out of whack.
3. Your sad desk lunch is lacking color--The broader the spectrum of the fruits and veggies in your typical meal, the more potassium you are eating without even thinking about it.
Curb cramps with potassium rich bananas and baked potatoes with the skin on.
