potassiumPotassium is a mineral and electrolyte that conducts electricity. It is necessary for the proper functioning of the body, including the nerves, muscles, and heart. Additionally, it facilitates the transportation of nutrients and waste within cells.


The potential health advantages associated with potassium include the reduction of blood pressure, protection against strokes, safeguarding against osteoporosis, prevention of kidney stones, and the reduction of water retention.

Various factors can affect the amount of potassium in the body, such as climate, physical activity, the use of diuretics, and sodium consumption (salt).


Potassium plays a vital role in sustaining life. It enables nerve responsiveness and muscle contraction, including the muscles of the heart. It also counteracts the effects of sodium (found in table salt) on raising blood pressure and aids in the movement of nutrients into cells while removing waste products from cells.


An imbalance of potassium can lead to health issues. Insufficient potassium (hypokalemia) may result in symptoms such as weakness, fatigue, muscle cramps, constipation, and abnormal heart rhythms. On the other hand, excessive potassium (hyperkalemia) is a serious and potentially life-threatening condition that can cause weakness, fatigue, nausea, and abnormal heart rhythms. Hyperkalemia is often caused by kidney disease or the use of medications that reduce potassium excretion in urine.


Potassium is primarily obtained through food consumption, and it can be found in various potassium-rich sources, including:

  • Fruits like apricots, bananas, kiwi, oranges, and pineapples.
  • Vegetables such as leafy greens, carrots, and potatoes.
  • Lean meats.
  • Whole grains.
  • Beans and nuts.

In general, a well-balanced diet provides an adequate amount of potassium for most individuals. However, in cases of low potassium levels, a doctor might recommend potassium supplements. Severe deficiencies may require intravenous (IV) treatment.


The recommended intake of potassium depends on age and life stage. The following are the adequate daily intake levels for potassium:

  • 0-6 months: 400 mg/day
  • 7-12 months: 700 mg/day
  • 1-3 years: 2,000 mg/day
  • 4-8 years: 2,300 mg/day
  • Adult men: 3,800 mg/day
  • Adult women: 2,800 mg/day
  • During pregnancy: 2,800 mg/day
  • While breastfeeding: 3,200 mg/day

It is important to note that taking potassium supplements should only be done under medical supervision, as excessive potassium intake can negatively impact health. Infants under 12 months can obtain all the potassium they need from breast milk, formula, and food.
