Potassium. Potassium is salt's equal. In our diets today, we eat fewer vegetables and fruits, which contain potassium and therefore regulate how much water stays in our system. We eat a lot of high sodium foods and never enough. Many times doctors will prescribe diuretics for high blood pressure
to flush out excess water that salt causes to be drawn from cells. This water drawn from the cells causes overload of the vascular system and in turn causes high blood pressure. Docotrs dont tell us these things because the drug industry is so monetarily profitable. Potassium and salt are electolytes. Potassium is a natural diuretic. Eat more bananas, potatoes and other fruits/vegetables, or take a potassium supplement. It's the best thing anyone can do for themselves.
