【Potassium can reduce water retention in the body】Potassium helps to maintain electrolyte balance and promote sodium excretion to serve the function of lowering water retention in the body. Therefore, a high-sodium and low-potassium diet could be the main cause of water retention. Unprocessed food including the majority of fruits, vegetables, and beans are good sources of potassium. WHO guideline recommended a potassium intake of at least 3500mg per day with a sodium intake limit of 2000mg per day to obtain health benefits including a reduction in blood pressure, reduced risk of stroke, and cardiovascular diseases.
Friendly reminder: It is suggested to avoid potassium rich foods if you have kidney disease, irregular heartbeat or on long-term medication.
