When we get sick, our bodies lose essential vitamins and minerals. The depletion of these minerals can prolong our illness and often worsen our condition.
Through stomach viruses and the flu, we can also lose electrolytes, substances that become ions when in a solution. The most common electrolytes in our bodies are sodium, potassium and chloride. An electrolyte imbalance affects vital organs like our kidneys, heart, and lungs.
Specifically, a lack of potassium can be a result of diarrhea, vomiting, medication or a poor diet.
You might have low potassium levels if you experience any of these five issues:
1. Water Retention
2. Digestive Problems
3. Nerve Issues
4. Heart Irregularities
So, if you discover that you’re constantly battling with one or more of these problems, try supplementing your diet with foods that will boost your potassium levels and get you back on track to better health:
2. Coconut Water
4. Sweet Potato
