Potassium is a needed mineral for our body. There are many food sources for potassium . When it comes to potassium, bananas may seem like the go-to food to get your fill of this mineral—one medium banana has around 420 mg, that’s 12 percent of your daily value. Potassium can help you ward off muscle cramps. It’s also important for keeping your heart healthy and your blood pressure in a healthy range. That’s because potassium helps counteract the blood pressure-raising effect of sodium

There are other sources for potassium other than a banana. One bean, the lima bean contains 485 mg per 1/2 cup . They’re high in iron and fiber too, and low in sugar and fat. I find them tasty, but not everyone finds them tasty.

Prunes have lots of potassium but they are also packed with sugar. A medium potato also contains a lot of potassium but high in sugar. I advocate this fruit , Avocado at least twice a week. Remember avocado is a fruit not a veggie. Avocados should give you a good dose of potassium, along with vitamins A, C, and E. They’re also full of healthy monounsaturated fats that might help lower cholesterol levels

The one fruit that has a lot of potassium is the watermelon. Watermelon contains a lot of sugar
