Did you know that peanuts are rich in potassium?

Peanut

Well, it’s true! Potassium is essential for ensuring our survival and is involved in different physical processes. Potassium is especially important for keeping blood pressure at a healthy level and for muscles and nerves. Potassium is an electrolyte and is mainly found within the cells. The other electrolytes, sodium and chloride, are found outside our cells. Keeping the amounts of electrolytes in balance is pivotal for ensuring that they can work together correctly. Enough potassium must be available. If this is the case, nerve impulses can be transmitted correctly. This controls muscle function and regulates blood pressure. As the body cannot produce potassium, which is a mineral, itself, then we take it in via food. Peanuts are inherently rich in potassium, with a potassium content of 705 mg per 100 g. This means that over a third of your recommended daily allowance of potassium is contained in a handful of peanuts.
