#36alive 348: Weekday Detox DAY 3: Pack In Potassium

Potassium is one of the nutrients the body loses through loss of water (i.e. peeing a lot when you’re drinking), or through dehydration – also something that tends to happen when Christmas drinks get out of hand.

Essential for maintaining muscular health, potassium is one of those nutrients you’ll really feel if you’re low in it. Muscle cramps, weakness, feeling faint, low blood pressure and slower healing are all signs of potassium deficiency. To get your fill, try packing in these potassium-rich sources to your diet today!



Butternut Squash

Leafy Greens
