Potassium is sodium’s counter actor in regulating the body’s fluid balance. Potassium balance is of the utmost importantfor the well-being of the heart, nervous system and muscles. Together with sodium potassium influences in osmotic balance between cells and the interstitial fluid by the Na+/K+-ATPase pump. Too low or high potassium levels are linked with the body’s disorders.
Lack of potassium may cause tiredness, muscle weakness, swelling and constipation.
From nutrition, potassium can be obtained from dairy and wheat products, vegetables, banana and citrus fruits. A plentiful supply of potassium balances problems caused by excessive use of nutrition high in sodium, such as high blood pressure and kidney overload.
Excess use of salt burdens the heart and accumulates extra liquid in the body. Sodium’s effect on cardiovascular diseases is a well-acknowledged problem. Besides excess salt, excess weight, food containing plenty of fats as well as lack of exercise are some of the main risk factors in cardiovascular problems.
A sufficient supply of potassium is essential especially during dieting, sports and for people doing physically hard work. A low supply of potassium may weaken performance and appear as weaker muscles and cramps. Increased sweating, for example, when doing sports increases the expulsion of potassium from the body.
