Peel A Banana

As you probably know, bananas are an excellent source of potassium.
It is not true, however, that bananas are the “fat-fruit” unless you eat
a few dozen a week! What you may not know though is that potas-sium is essential for your body to be optimally hydrated. A lack of
proper hydration is one of the top ways to depress your metabolism
since every single energy process in your cells relies on a molecule of
water at some point in time!

Potassium also aids in proper muscle contraction. It is important
for chemical reactions within the cells, stabilization of blood pres-sure and transmission of electrochemical impulses. Thermo gen-esis, which is crucial to a high metabolism, is strongly related to the transport of potassium ions across the cell membrane. A depressed sodium potassium pump will lead to a depressed basal metabolic rate!

In case you just can’t stand the flavor or the yellow mush of bananas,
other great sources of potassium include milk and oranges. LeanFactor
includes a particularly beneficial source of potassium aspartate
which vastly improves energy levels. EnerPrime contains potassium
citrate, which is under consumed by Americans and often depleted
due to overuse of sodium and caffeine. The combination of the potassium aspartate in LeanFactor and the potassium citrate in EnerPrime
makes them ideal supplements to your diet!

    Count me among the people who can't stand the yellow mush of bananas. My next creamsicle I'm going to congratulate myself for pumping up my potassium levels!
