Think fast: what’s the eleventh letter of the alphabet?
Now think about your chemistry class: what element does this letter of the alphabet correspond to?
K for potassium. K like Keevo.
It's just good math!
Beyond your chemistry class, potassium is pretty jolting as it ranks high on the list of essential minerals for the human body. In fact, potassium is involved in several important body functions on the daily.
Whether it’s working out, at rest or at work, or even during happy hour or way after the party, you need good K.
All jokes aside, potassium is a mineral that our body does not produce. It is therefore necessary to source it through a thoughtful and complete diet.
Potassium is also an electrolyte, which means it conducts the body's electrical impulses for key functions such as muscle contraction, digestion, heart rate, the nervous system and more.
Running out of potassium is like a flower fading from lack of water. Muscle cramps, extreme fatigue, nausea, vomiting and other unpleasant and sometimes fatal metabolic consequences are felt quickly.
Sources of Potassium
Oh K so, how do you ensure your daily intake of K? (we’re really milking it, eh?)
Bananas are oh k, but you can find several surprising and versatile alternatives that contain much more potassium.
Take bran, an ancient cereal perfect for breakfast or pinto beans which go well on burritos.
The best mineral K that electrifies your metabolism is hence in the baobab, oh K? :)
