Potassium shortfall? Potassium fulfills a long list of jobs in the body, including helping to regulate water balance (via the active transport pump), maintaining pH balance, maintaining blood pressure levels already within the normal range and supporting neuromuscular function. This mineral also plays a critical role in the transmission of electrical impulses in the heart.
Although there's plenty of potassium in many natural foods, commercial over processing results in the loss of potassium and increases the sodium content. The ratio may be as high as 4:1 in favor of sodium. In addition, certain diseases and physical exertion can also deplete the body of potassium.
Other factors that may lead to a potassium shortfall include aging, injuries or burns, mental stress, diarrhea, vomiting, and the use of diuretics and laxatives. Potassium shortages can lead to a variety of unfavorable health conditions.
