2:47 For optimum potassium, consume seven to ten cups per day of vegetables
In this video, I’m going to talk about why potassium is so important to your body. The more deficient you are in potassium, the more your pancreas has to pump out insulin. This puts more stress on your pancreas. If you have diabetes, that’s not good.
Your body needs potassium more than any other nutrient. Your body needs close to 5,000 mg per day of this mineral. Almost every cell needs it for energy. Your cells have pumps that put out energy. Without enough potassium, the pumps don’t function correctly and you feel tired.
You need potassium to make muscle protein, and other kinds of protein too. Potassium is used to store glucose in the form of glycogen, a chain of glucose molecules. Each link in this chain needs potassium. All of your cells except your brain and red blood cells have glycogen. Your brain is dependent on the sugar in your blood. Without enough, you experience fatigue, moodiness, and brain fog.
Junk food depletes potassium because of its high sodium content. Adrenal stress, which results in high cortisol, also depletes potassium. Insulin resistance and diabetes block your ability to absorb potassium. By consuming enough potassium in your diet, you can decrease your need for insulin, and help correct your blood sugar issues.
You need to consume large quantities of vegetables in order to get enough potassium and help regulate your insulin. Each day, you must consume seven to ten cups of vegetables. There is no shortcut. You require so much potassium that taking supplements isn’t feasible.
