                        need to be grand, but should keep you motivated by being reachable.

                If You're Trying To Lose Weight, Make Sure You're Getting Enough Potassium
                                                                    By Cate Moon



  Our modern lifestyles tend to contribute to a potassium deficiency. For example, many people
wanting to lose weight fast resort to all kinds of fad diet.

Many of these diets are produced with one aim in mind,to make money for the person(s) who think it
up. There is no concern for the health of those who are duped into giving away their hard-earned cash.


One of the health concerns of these diets is that some of them provide only a fraction of the potassium
needed for our good health, 2000 to 3500 mg per day.

Another problem that can cause low potassium levels is sodium. Because of a chemical relationship,
when sodium intake is high then potassium intake is low.

Unfortunately, modern diets contain a lot of processed foods, which is a double whammy because food
processing not only increases sodium content but also decreases potassium levels.

Potassium becomes depleted from the bodies of those who: take cortisone or diuretics, body build or
have illnesses such as kidney or liver disease. Such people would benefit greatly from dietary
supplements containing potassium but only if administered and carefully monitored by a doctor.

Also, drinks containing caffeine and alcohol can produce a deficiency because they lower potassium
levels.

The importance of having sufficient potassium in your diet cannot be overstressed. Why? Because it is
fundamental to the normal functioning of the heart, nerves, muscles and kidneys; it is beneficial for
those with blood pressure; it is needed for the body's fluid balance, it can protect against osteoporosis
and minimises the risk of kidney stones plus many, many more.

Symptoms of potassium deficiency include dry skin, weakness, muscle fatigue, slow reflexes,
confusion, irritability, heart problems etc.

So, make sure that you eat plenty of the foods with high potassium/low sodium content, which include:
baked potatoes (with skin), bananas, soya beans (boiled), spinach, beetroot, almonds (raw), bran

wheat, Raisin Wheats, black treacle, sultanas, raisins, wheat germ, figs, dried mixed fruit, currants,
seeds, plantain (boiled), chicken, salmon, lima beans, whole milk etc.

The real trick for safe, healthy weight loss is to find the high potassium/low sodium foods which also
have a low glycaemic index (GI). Watch this space!

P.S. Do you need a potassium top up? For breakfast try wheat germ with whole milk topped with
sultanas, raisins or banana. Then have a baked potato for lunch and for dinner have a piece of salmon
with vegetables or salad.

                                 Cider Vinegar: A Good, Natural Source of Potassium.
                                                           By Rupert Malone



Cider Vinegar is a very good natural source of potassium and potassium is an essential ingredient for
normal growth and the replacing of worn out body tissues. It can also help prevent the hardening of
blood vessels.

Causes of Potassium deficiency in the body can be caused by certain medical conditions, including
something as simple as a bad case of sickness and diarrhea. Even some medications, can purge the
body of this much needed mineral.

It is interesting to note that problems with splitting fingernails can be an indication of a potassium
deficiency in the body. Tooth decay can also be caused by the same deficiency. Of course, if you do
have bad teeth, and happen to be eating several dozen chocolate bars a day, then it is probably safe
to say that Potassium deficiency isn’t the problem.

If your sweet-tooth hasn’t got out of control, and you do have a problem with decay, then perhaps cider
vinegar, with its high Potassium content, might be your answer. Yes, that apple a day will keep the
doctor away and a glass of cider vinegar might keep the dentist away.

Potassium deficiency, or Hypokalemia if you want to use the correct terminology, can have a lot of
negative effects on the body; some of them are a lot more worrying than tooth decay. In severe cases
the deficiency can cause heart problems to develop or a condition called Hypokalemic Paralysis that
renders the entire body stiff.

Fortunately, Potassium is present in a lot of foods apart from apples, so in the normal course of events
most people should have no trouble in getting enough of this important mineral. Good sources of
Potassium include fish, chicken, beef, bananas, apricots, melons, and lima beans. There are many
others too, including chocolate, strange to say, so you can have your tooth ache if you want it, without
having to worry about your Potassium levels falling.
