What Are Potatoes Secret Weapon? ..Potassium!
Regularly eating potatoes can lead to lower blood pressure. The secret lies in the potassium levels found within the potatoes.
This wonder mineral helps to naturally fight high blood pressure, and a medium-sized potato (with the skin) has over 900mg of potassium.
That is nearly 1/3 of your daily recommended value.
Potatoes have also recently been found to contain natural compounds known as kukoamines, which also have blood pressure reducing qualities.
So treat yourself to that baked potato! Just go easy on the butter…
