POTASSIUM!!! You may remember this word from the periodic table of elements, as the letter K to be exact.
But have you ever thought of why potassium is so important?
I remember some years back when I had my son and for some reason maybe a few weeks or so afterwards I started feeling a numbness in my legs. Particularly at night while trying to sleep.
I contacted my doctor only to find out that my body had been depleted of potassium, that my body would not automatically make it, and it was up to me to get that mineral back into my body through certain foods.
Potassium is a very important mineral for the proper function of all cells, tissues, and organs in the human body. It is also an electrolyte, a substance that conducts electricity in the body, along with sodium, chloride, calcium, and magnesium.

Potassium also contributes to every heartbeat by helping the heart to squeeze blood through your body. It helps your muscles to maintain its mobility, your nerves to operate and your kidneys to dispense blood.
The best way to ensure that you are getting enough potassium is by eating fruits and vegetables that are high in this mineral.
