I’ll admit… I never knew Potassium could solve these 3 problems.
This list is not only going to blow your mind, but it might even help you with diabetes…
So here we go:
Potassium keeps you from gaining fat.
So, Carbs are made up of a sugar molecule called glucose. When glucose enters your body it can either be used or stored as glycogen. When glucose is stored like this it’s really easy to break it back down and use it.
So what does potassium do?
Well, it’s actually what lets you store the glucose this way. So when you don’t have enough glucose your body can’t store it as glycogen and ends up storing fat instead!
So in summary, too little potassium = more fat.
Potassium can help Diabetes.
As we now know, Potassium affects how your body stores sugar, this means it can also help your body control it's insulin levels better! This makes it so that potassium can help those with diabetes or insulin resistance by decreasing your body’s need for insulin.
Oh and a little bonus, potassium can also lessen the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis too!
Potassium helps you lose weight.
Have you ever seen some chocolate cake and just want it so bad? You know it would ruin so much work you have put in but it still looks so good. Well, once again potassium can come to the rescue for you!
And it actually comes back to the fact that potassium helps you control insulin and sugar levels in your blood. It keeps these levels from going up or down quickly, which will actually help you get rid of your sweet tooth!
Now, where can you get your fix of potassium?
Some great sources of potassium are avocados, leafy greens, beatroot, coconut Water, sweet potatoes, and bananas... to name just a few. It is also suggested that you eat about 4700 mg of potassium every day. And just as a point of reference, 1 cup of leafy greens has, on average, 600 mg of potassium!
