Potassium Rich Foods

An important electrolyte, potassium is also the third most abundant mineral in the body. It interacts with sodium to perform a number of important functions every single day, such as balancing fluids and mineral levels within the body.

It’s why having low potassium levels can be so dangerous. Symptoms of low potassium — aka hypokalemia — are dangerous and can include severe headaches, dehydration and heart palpitations. 15 Foods High In Potassium

As of 2019, an expert committee with the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine established updated recommendations for potassium consumption, which can vary based on age and gender.

Here are the most recent recommendations for potassium:

0–6 months: 400 milligrams/day
7–12 months: 860 milligrams/day
1–3 years: 2,000 milligrams/day
4–8 years: 2,300 milligrams/day
9–13 years: 2,500 milligrams/day for males and 2,300 milligrams/day for females
14–18  years: 3,000 milligrams/day for males and 2,300 milligrams/day for females
Over 19 years: 3,400 milligrams/day for males and 2,600 milligrams/day for females
Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding: 2,800–2,900 milligrams/day

In addition, athletes who work out for more than an hour most days may need even more potassium, and intakes vary based on muscle mass, activity levels, etc.

Olive Oil - Real or Fake and some of the Health Benefits

Something that many people don’t realize is that it’s common for “extra virgin olive oil” purchased in most major grocery stores to be laced with GMO canola oil and herb flavors. Many store shelves are lined with fake olive oil options. A CBS report found that up to 70 percent of the extra virgin olive oil sold worldwide is watered down with other oils and enhancers, thanks to the Mafia corruption involved in the production process. (1) (Yes, you read that correctly.)

Real, high-quality extra virgin olive oil has well-researched anti-inflammatory compounds, antioxidants and numerous heart-healthy macro-nutrients, which explains why there are so many olive oil benefits. Extra virgin olive oil benefits include lowering rates of inflammation, heart disease, depression, dementia and obesity. But with all of that in mind, unfortunately, not all olive oil is created equally — not even all of the “extra virgin” kinds have the requisite olive oil benefits!
