Table II.30: Potassium (ii.14654100113118-120)

Potassium is an essential mineral for human health, and is crucial for the electrical signaling functions of the nervous system. Turmeric rhizome is typically high in potassium (about 2500 mg in 100 g of dried turmeric and over 55 mg/tsp. of the ground spice), which it needs and absorbs from the soil it grows in.

Other plants and herbs that contain potassium include alfalfa, avocado, borage, chervil, cocoa, dandelion, fennel, horsetail, kava, nettle, purslane, savory, and tamarind. Research suggests that these potassium-containing herbs and vegetables could also be good for your health. They may help reduce stress and control blood sugar (important with diabetes and insulin resistance). Studies show they have beneficial effects in treating thinning hair, cellulite, and even wrinkles.

  • Potassium could play a role in weight loss. In a clinical study involving obese women, mineral supplements with calcium and potassium as the main ingredients increased the amount of calories burned during rest. One of the features of Ayurveda diets for weight loss is their high potassium content.
  • Potassium plays a role in regulating electrical activity across cell membranes and metabolism.
