Potassium is also a type of electrolyte, that helps the human body's natural electrical impulses and nerve functions to work properly.
Electrolytes are regulated very carefully in our blood and tissues to maintain the proper functioning of all of our electrical impulses for the muscle, heart, and neurological function.
If you’re eating a healthy diet loaded with fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and nuts, you’re likely covering your daily need for potassium. RDI (recommended daily intake): 4,700 mg daily for adult men and women
A deficiency of potassium ions in the body fluids may produce a fatal condition called as Hypokalemia. This condition results in diuresis, vomiting, and diarrhea. Symptoms of potassium deficiency include decreased reflex response, muscle weakness, cardiac arrhythmia, ECG abnormalities, paralytic ileus, alkalosis, and in severe cases respiratory paralysis may occur.
