POTASSIUM

Potassium is the third most abundant mineral in the human body. It’s essential for us to consume it for good heart, brain and kidney function. It also reduces stress and anxiety and enhances muscle and bone strength, and metabolism. If you’re deficient in potassium, you can experience fatigue, muscle cramps and weakness, heart palpitations, anemia, headaches, stroke and diabetes among other illnesses.
