The potassium RDA is 4,400mg.

Added to that list are:

  • Cucumbers
  • Spinach
  • Figs
  • Dates
  • Avocados.

These five additions are lower in K mineral than the previous foods but are still high enough to help those who are taking potassium wasting medication for high blood pressure.

The body uses potassium as it is assimilated. It does not store it, so it is necessary to make sure you are getting sufficient amounts in your diet.

These foods are numbered from 16 – 20 on the main list for your convenience.

1 cup (184gms) = 420mg of potassium
