Potassium is something that you have probably all heard off - but do you actually know how important it is for the body?

Potassium is essential in the body as it has many health benefits including; heart and kidney disorders, blood pressure, anxiety and stress, metabolism, water balance, electrolytic functions, nervous systems, enhanced muscle strength, relief from stroke and it can also help flush out sodium.

There are several signs that you are not getting enough Potassium such as feeling tired a lot of the time, having leg cramps or muscle weakness, feeling faint or dizzy, bloating and high blood pressure.

So what can you do about it? There are lots of foods that are high in Potassium and believe it or not Bananas are not the highest ranking! Sweet Potatoes contain up to 694 mg of potassium, tomato paste and puree are also high in Potassium containing more than just a tomato alone! So try adding more Potassium to your diet to feel the benefits.
