Do You Want A List Of Foods High In Potassium? Think So?

Doing the research and finding a worthy list of foods high in potassium these days, has nearly become a insult. The majority of the information spreading across the web is regurgitated rhetoric, juxtaposed, reworded and ultimately redone to be displayed as brand, spankin’ new. Sharing a list of foods high in potassium, without properly putting such information into real world context, is anything, but helpful, or healthy.

My hope is that my humble effort to help those seeking potassium help, set the record straight and hopefully transform my experience into words you can use that have led to my healthy lifestyle, disease free, or discomfort. Before detailing the high potassium foods and their components, let us first discuss how vital potassium is in your human body, blood, and the reasons why it could be a dangerous result if not properly maintained.

Showing High Potassium Or Low Potassium?

It is unjust to simply assume a deficiency or excess of potassium in your body must be dealt with, by extreme, opposite actions to bring potassium levels back inline. This is the common thinking on ‘health sites’ online. As obvious as poorly researched information usually is, whether all natural or not, is to simply do the reverse that ultimately caused either having too much potassium in your body or not enough.

In other words, although it might be logical at least in theory a human body depleted in a mineral can be solved by adding or subtracting the intake of said mineral, or nutrient, potassium in this case until your deficiency or excessive potassium levels lessens or disappears completely.

Which is exactly the reason so many run to the internet to diagnose and get information previously warned about via often absolutely preposterous web sites (the ‘reporting’ found on Wikipedia presented as medical fact yes, actually could harm you more than help) that misrepresent factual statements, misinterpret medical meanings, and blatantly lie in a distasteful display of manipulation to seduce you to buy into a hidden agenda, often resulting in you parting with your cash.

Foods the boast high potassium include, but are not limited to: bananas, dates, black strap molasses, brewer’s yeast (not the same as the yeast you bake with – brewer’s yeast is an over the counter supplement that can be found in most health stores, or on the internet), brown rice, potatoes, dulse (which is a form of sea weed, usually sold in flat sheets dried and in the ethnic aisle at even conventional grocery stores – think sushi), garlic, dried fruits, winter squash, wheat bran, nuts, figs, yams.

That list of foods high in potassium is just the starting point. I’ll be adding more to the list in future weeks, addressing the low in potassium foods list and expanding upon it as time permits.

Also of note before you go diving into your high potassium or low potassium diet plan; keep this in mind.

If you have any issues with your kidney function, you experience frequent bouts of vomiting, or you regularly smoke cigarettes, or you consume caffeine regularly, each and / or in together will directly effect your potassium levels adversely.

For an ever growing resource dedicated to potassium levels and list of foods high in potassium go to the potassium health site dedicated to exactly that.
