these are great tips. About V-8 low sodium, a couple drops of hot sauce make it taste better.

When I started tracking Potassium intake I had to revise my favorites in my food tracker.
I am reading labels and finding some manufacturers don't include potassium content in their food label.
I am talking about things I know have Potassium in them.
How much Potassium is everybody trying to get per day?
My sparkPeople tracker suggested 2000-3500mg per day.
I started tracking Potassium and Sodium about the same time and something is sure helping my BP numbers.

I'm trying to get up to 3,000 with potassium. It IS difficult. However, it CAN be done. Eating all the potassium rich foods.

Double check the nutrition on the food tracker to see if all the vit and nutrients are listed. I had to go back through My Favorites and check. That helped a bit.

I take potassium supplements. Four of them. Don't think I want to take any more.

I try to get all the nutrients from food. At the end of the day, if I'm 'down' on something, I take a supplement. Keeps me from evening munching, also.

I was eating two bananas a day, but that got old quickly. I'm trying to just keep Pot-rich foods in the house, so I'll eat those and make wise decisions.

Oh, did you know you can make decent brownies out of beans??? Check out the SP recipies under Gluten-free brownies.

I noticed that on the foods I put into my menus, many of them only have the calorie and carbs listed, some didn't have anything, so I had to look at other listings. I usually just use the ones other people have already put it to fill in my food on my menus. I was thinking that potassium level sure looks awfully high on the site, is that correct? I never meet it. I just read more messages on this topic, so thanks for the tips about not taking supplements for potassium. I just looked at my last blood tests taken a few weeks ago and mine was 5.0, so I don't need supplements, I must be getting plenty from my foods.

I'm not sure how to display on my ticker how I started in March of this year on a diet, weighting 209# and now have lost 42# so far, and my goal weight is 150! I am at 166# now. I have not been keeping on on updating my progress on my Spark Page. As of 2 12 16 my weight in 157. 7 more pounds to my goal weight. Weight loss has slowed down a lot lately.

I've taken to adding in low sodium V8. It doesn't taste "great" but I remind myself...this is for your health...don't sip it...drink it.

I too try to keep a supply on the job and in the car and have noticed that when a headache hits at work I take the V8 and that seems to help.

I didn't know about cocoa...Thanks for the tip. I've done some research about this and may incorporate into my mornings...and evenings.

You all have provided me with a wealth of information to look into.

I wouldn't say there is anything actually wrong with supplements as such but we can get potassium from natural sources better. Brazil nuts,wholegrains,chickpeas,pumpkin seeds ,yeast extract,strawberries,bananas,tomatoes and many other fruit and veg so why waste money on supplements ?

To me Living Foods is the answer to most if not all the dietary needs including potassium. We cook out too many nutrients and do not include enough Living foods into our diet. I do not say eat a completely raw diet but include a lot of fresh raw foods every day and cut back on the dead cooked food .After all cooking kills food. Can you grow a cooked carrot ? No! but you can put a carrot top that has not been cooked into water and it will continue to grow because it is still living.

Banans, oranje juice, apricots, NoSalt. Avoid artifical potassium supplements. The normal range for blood potassium lever is very narrow; too much or too little can mess your heart rythm up really badly. Talk to your Primary Caregiver before taking a non-food supplement. The food tracker on here is bad about not capturing all your potassium and magnesium intake, so you are probably getting more than you think.

I would try to avoid potassium supliments and look to potassium rich foods instead. I know I go on about sprouted seeds and legumes but really you can't beat them for their nutritional value including potassium.

wow AND wow i'm new, my hubby can no longer tolerate a simple banana because his BP drugs are full of it, he reacts with a servere rash, he has just got out of emergency wih bp of 211 over 136 yet we have changed nothing he takes his meds walks twice a day eats fish and fruit every day, his results will be back on Thurs. This discussion has been excellent, til we see the dietician we have been following a vey low sodium diet, some of the things like you guys suggest we will try. Its just amazing how much sodium is hidden in everyday products ie a tin of tomatoes.
thanks

I have gotten serious about this diet very recently, although I have been reading up on it and trying things since about Dec 3.........One thing I would like to add is that before taking any potassium supplement be sure to check with a doctor and have your potassium level checked.......My doctor (a cardiologist) monitors my blood with a complete workup each month (I also had my aortic valve and a double bypass done withing the past 7 months) My doctor has cautioned me against getting TOO much potassium because it can be very harmful.....I won't take a supplement although I have trouble reaching the levels on this diet......My potassium level must be fine because he took me off a supplement about 4 months ago......Thanks.......Take care..... emoticon

One very pleasant way to help reduce High Blood Pressure is cocoa NOT hot chocolate but good old fashioned dark Cocoa . I drink about 3 cups a day on average and I make a special nibble from cacao nibs that I pick at during the day as well. I have also been testing the DASH diet and the RESPeRATE machine and I am pleased to report that my blood pressure has dropped from 178/98 down to 127/75 . I am not sure if this is entirely due to either method but I sure impressed. emoticon I will continue with the Dash diet and the machine and see what happens.

Excellent point! The normal range for a potassium blood test is very narrow - from 3.5 to 5.0! I would not take any NON-FOOD supplement without permission from your doctor. Getting out of range in either direction is potentially deadly! Magnesium situation is similar. We are probably getting more potassium in our foods than we realize.

Obviously increasing potassium and magnesium is important for many of us with BP issues. Decreasing sodium is really the first step though, in my understanding. I am going to look into the many methods listed here in the forum to increase potassium levels, but I would like to caution anyone who is attempting to increase their potassium to dialogue with their doctor about safe and effective methods and levels. Excessive potassium can lead to kidney damage. I'm sure many or most reading this are knowledgeable on the subject and acting on medical advice, but for those who might not be, please keep this in mind. Most potassium supplements are made low for precisely this reason.

I also have trouble reaching my potassium goal.. I have never heard of using Epsom salts. that would be worth trying.
I take magnesium pills every day because that is low and does help.
It is really hard to track potassium on Sparks because potassium is not listed in the nutrients section of most items.
most items like canned fruits and vegetables do not have potassium listed on the label. Also meats do not.
I looked up potassium count of some of these items on another site and found that chicken and pork etc have about 400mg of potassium that is not listed and the vegetables have quite a bit. so unless you are adding the potassium to your listings you are probably getting more potassium than you think.
I gave up tracking the potassium on my nutrition for that reason.
I try to eat a banana and fruit every day and drink orange juice or v8.

I can't even get close to my intake. Love V-8 juice but don't care for low sodium. Don't eat alot because I'm on leave and don't do much of anything. But read all the posts and am going to try the molasses and some of the other items that aren't high in cals.
Great discussion. Thanks everyone and keep it up.

I've been trying to get my potassium levels up for a number of months now and I've noticed that when feeling ready bad, dizzy, and blood pressure spiking, visual disturbances, that when doing the V8 test...those symptoms clear up and my blood pressure has been stable! Because of this I've been using V8 a lot as I've stated before! However, I recently started using B12 sublinguals and noticed a difference in how I was feeling.

Today I did some research on the connection between Vitamin B12 deficiency and hypokalemia (low potassium) and found some great information at wikipedia here en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitamin_B12_de
fi
ciency
.

What I found interesting in reading the wikipedia entry was this statement:

"Hypokalemia, an excessive low potassium level in the blood, is anecdotally reported as a complication of vitamin B12 repletion after deficiency. Excessive quantities of potassium are used by newly growing and dividing hematopoeitic cells, depleting circulating stores of the mineral."

While everyone may not be B12 deficient, it has helped me a great deal and is worth investigating for those of us suffering from high blood pressure, anemia, fatigue, mood disturbances, etc.

From my research, the best form of B12 is Methylcobalamin! A sublingual is a great way to get it in and the one that I have been using and comes highly recommended (no affiliation) is Jarrow's Formula METHYL B12 1000! This B12 supplement has been phenomenal, as compared to others I'v'e used, and I also find it fascinating that a B12 deficiency is related to ANEMIA as well (which I also have)... This has been an "eye opening" moment for me and I hope someone else stumbles on something that helps them as well...

Best Wishes and GOOD HEALTH TO US ALL...

My husband buys Epsom Salts for the roses. I guess I can use it for a soak or as you did to exfoliate. Worth the try. I had wondered besides eating bannanas and taking more supplements if there were ways to increase potassium without calories.

I was wondering if anyone had tried the Epson Salt baths to increase the magnesium in the body which in turn will increase the potassium. I didn't have time for a soak but instead used the Epsom Salts as an exfoliant on my face, hands, and legs and I can tell you that I felt much calmer afterwards and my blood pressure lowered...I ate chineese and it went up so that helped to bring it back down!

I'm definitely going to be doing this regularly!

Hope someone finds this useful!

I was surprised yesterday at my low potassium and magnesium levels...meant to check and see what my multi vitamin had in it, but then forgot. I also have type 2 diabetes so need to watch my carb intake as well. I'll give the V8 a try (wish they would make a no salt version!)...eating heart healthy is a challenge at first! I thought I had a fairly decent diet with the exception of portion control...and sweet tooth, but generally do good on veges, usually chicken,...but without the portion control, good diets don't help much!

Life...what a learning opportunity!

Hello All,

I was wondering if anyone has any additional advice on getting the potassium numbers up because I'm still not doing well at it. When my potassium is low I get dizzy, have visual disturbances, and feel really weak. I keep V8 in my car and in my purse for emergency situations but I've got to do better at this some how...

I can't seem to get anywhere near the range... Strangey enough whenever I have a seizure, my potassium levels are so low they think I'm anorexic...and I certainly am not. I'm trying to get the doctor to figure this out but am taking potassium supplements twice a day, as well as mag/cal.


Thanks for the list, I will definitely focus on the beans, v8, and sweet potatoes...

Thanks for the link. I found it extremely informative. I try to have as much potassium rich foods daily [banana, potato with skin, canteloupe, coconut water, etc.]....and when in doubt, I have my supplement.

Thanks for the quick list, it is really helpful. It will help me know were to start.
