For those looking to add lots of potassium to their diets to fight high BP, I can recommend two biggies: organic blackstrap molasses, and coconut water. The first has between 600-750 mg of potassium per tablespoon, and 11 oz. of Harvest Bay coconut water has 660 mg. Both have less sugar then you might think, and as a bonus, have a good amount of magnesium too. With just these two you are more then 1/4 your daily recomm. of potassium as per the DASH diet.
I know about bananas and raisins, but if anyone else knows of any super-concentrated potassium foods/drinks, please pass them along.
Oops- I accidentally deleted my last post saying I was hoping to get moderator approval to post an old link I once posted 4 years ago with potassium content of various foods.
Well, anyway, The Board Administrator would not allow posting of my original link but here is a good resource for foods and their potassium content from the United States Govt. Dept Of Agriculture Database.
Not as easy to read as my original source but it's ultimately the same info.
I'm sure I have a Potassium defiency, I spent days and weeks without fruit and vegetables. My heart rate is higher than normal and I'm always short of breath, I don't take multi-vitamins because they make me feel breathless don't know why. I like bananas but it also has an effect on my heart rate, so I don't eat it much. Anyway, I try to do my best.
