Battle high blood pressure with potassium
Everyone's heard that too much sodium can raise your blood pressure. But what most people don't know is that balancing your sodium intake with potassium can keep your blood pressure on an even keel!
Potassium helps move sodium out of your body while boosting energy. And delicious whole foods like avocados, yogurt, bananas, spinach, and salmon are all great sources of potassium. Eat these foods and cut back on salty, processed meat, and you're well on your way to balancing your salt and potassium.
