Re: does regular coffee affect potassium level

Regular coffee has alot of potassium, but unless you have kidney problems, the amount of potassium you take in has no bearing on your blood potassium level. The body naturally regulates this electrolyte very tightly, as too low or too high can affect the heartbeat.
