Show the potassium menu to your clients and have them pick choices they will make more often. The choices they make will help you develop a personalized meal plan that delivers enough of this important electrolyte. Remember to discuss their sodium as well. You may want to do that evaluation too.

What conditions does potassium help?

If your client wants better skin, heart health, clothes to fit better and better metabolism, their body needs enough potassium. They can use the menu to identify choices they will enjoy to make sure their body gets enough potassium most days.

What about potassium supplements?

While you can get more potassium from better supplements, you don’t want them to take in more than 100mg daily unless advised by a healthcare practitioner. The body needs about 3000mg daily so even with supplements food choices are crucial to meet daily needs.
