Heart palpitations are no fun, and something that has been reported with potassium intake. Not everyone has this problem with potassium of course, but for those that do it can be a bit…disheartening (forgive the pun).
Potassium is a necessary mineral for the human body to keep normal water balance between cells and body fluids while aiding in nerve conduction and muscle support. It helps your heart to pump, your kidney’s to filter, and in general the whole circulatory system. One thing it has really helped for me is the increasing muscle cramps I seem to be getting as I age.
There are some great sources of naturally occurring potassium in foods like…
- Beans, peas and other legumes
- Dried prunes, raisins, and apricots
- Avocados (nice little source and slow carb diet approved)
- Potatoes (not slow carb diet approved)
- Tomatoes (also slow carb diet approved, but moderate well)
- Fruits like bananas, citrus fruits and strawberries
A Great Potassium Supplement without the Heart Palpitations?
The problems that people sometimes have regarding heart palpitations is a bit ironic because potassium plays such a vital role in the circulatory system. However, there is hope.
The Vital Biologics Heart Calm with Potassium product is built to combat anxiety and to stop heart palpitations while delivering potassium, magnesium and other vital minerals to your system.
It is possible that people that are REALLY sensitive to potassium that they could still be effected in a negative way, so if this is you, make sure you add this product after having established a baseline where this is the only variable so you can tell if any issues arise.
As always, if you are concerned at all and especially if you do have a history of problems, make sure you consult your doctor before trying ANY supplement.
