What potassium does for you

Potassium plays a vital role in the functioning of your muscles, heart, nerve cells, kidneys and your adrenal glands. It ensures that your body’s fluid levels remain balanced and that your body is neither too alkaline nor too acidic.

It also prevents calcium from being lost in your urine and has been shown to protect against stroke and kidney stones.
