Hemp Guidebook: Potassium
Today on the Hemp Guidebook, we’ll be looking at Potassium!
Potassium is one of the trace elements that can be found within the human body.
It is, like all elements, minerals, and vitamins, a very important part of what makes your body work. Fortunately for us, it can be found in a wide variety of foods with options to be supplemented as well.
Hemp is among the places that you can receive a hit of Potassium.
I want to provide a detailed listing of everything that you’re able to find in Hemp, so that you know what is necessary for health and wellness. In this article we’ll go over all the ins and outs of Potassium and why it is so important for the body.
Alright, let’s get started!
What is Potassium
As I said, Potassium is one of the trace elements in the body.
The others being Sodium, and Calcium which we’ve talked about.
The reason it is so important for the body relates to the effects that it has on the nervous and circulatory systems.
Potassium will assist vital functions in nerve signalling, the process by which your nerves tell your brain what’s going on. In addition, it plays a part in muscle contractions and even aids in maintaining balance.
Most of the Potassium we have in our bodies is acquired from external dietary resources.
Foods including dried nuts and other fruits, vegetables, milk, and some beans are very rich and are often recommended to people with low potassium levels.
Anyone who mentions Potassium must also be sure to mention Bananas, which can suffice your daily needs.
In addition to the functions of Potassium I described above, it can also assist in reducing blood pressure, preventing strokes, and even reducing the pain of headaches!
Having too little Potassium in your system can be quite serious.
If it falls too far your body will begin to have issues in your nervous system.
In addition to this, bloating, chronic fatigue, and lethargy are common symptoms.
Whenever your blood Potassium falls too low, it will also lead to high blood pressure which has it’s own issues associated with it. Insulin resistance and Meniere’s Disease (An Inner Ear disorder that can lead to dizziness and vertigo) are also potential problems
Too much Potassium can lead to much more severe issues than low Potassium. This type of condition is very dangerous and Experts have noted a variety of problems.
Irregular Heartbeat and Weak Pulse are among the cardiovascular effects that can occur. Difficulty in digestion and muscle weakness are very common as well.
People with chronic health conditions such as Diabetes, Hypertension, and Kidney Disorders are harder to detect Potassium problems in. They should have blood tests done every 6 months in order to observe abnormalities and administer treatment.
If you are experiencing health problems, you should always seek the counsel of a medical professional. They may recommend certain medication and supplements that can help manage Potassium levels.
For anyone trying to add more of this element to their diet, I would suggest the addition of Hemp Oil. Not only does it contain Potassium, but also an array of other vitamins and minerals that can be beneficial to the body.
