Is Potassium helpful to your Body

potassium is highly classified as an electrolyte because it’s highly reactive in water? When dissolved in water it produces positively charged ions.

This special property allows it to conduct electricity, which is important for many processes throughout the body.

Interestingly, a potassium-rich diet is linked to much powerful health benefits. It may help reduce blood pressure and water retention, protect against stroke and help prevent osteoporosis and kidney stones.  

Potassium is helpful for Nervous system

The nervous system relays messages between your brain and body

Those messages will be delivered in the form of nerve impulses and help regulates your muscle contractions, heartbeat, reflexes and many other body functions.

Mainly nerve impulse is generated by sodium ions moving into cells and potassium ions moving out of the cells.

That right movement of ions changes the voltage of the cell, that activates a nerve impulse

A drop in blood levels of potassium can affect the body ability to generate a nerve impulse
