Potassium is a mineral that plays a key role in many bodily functions, including the regulation of blood pressure, the transmission of nerve impulses, and the contraction of muscles. Some potential benefits of potassium include:
Supporting heart health: Potassium is important for the proper functioning of the heart, and may help reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke.
May help lower blood pressure: Adequate intake of potassium may help lower blood pressure, which is a risk factor for heart disease and stroke.
May support bone health: Some research has suggested that adequate intake of potassium may be important for bone health, and that low levels of potassium may be associated with an increased risk of osteoporosis.
May support muscle function: Potassium is important for the contraction of muscles, and may help reduce muscle cramps and spasms.
Microgreens are often high in potassium, with some types containing significantly higher levels than their mature counterparts. For example, one study found that red cabbage microgreens contained up to four times more potassium than mature red cabbage.
