  • Men consuming 5400 mg of potassium per day vs 3350 mg were 22% less likely to die during 7.6 years

    The one-fifth of men consuming the most potassium, an average of roughly 5400 mg of potassium per day, were 22% less likely to die during a 7.6 year study than the one-fifth of men consuming the second most potassium, an average of 3350 mg per day according to The Scottish Heart Health Study.

     

    American men consume, on average, roughly 3500 mg of potassium per day, and some consume much less than this.

    This suggests that consuming an additional 2000 mg of potassium per day appears to be highly protective against dying over a period of time.

    Potassium was powerfully protective

    Unexpectedly powerful protective relation of dietary potassium to all cause mortality

    “In contrast [to sodium], potassium excretion showed a highly significant protective gradient for all deaths in both sexes and significantly protected against all coronary heart disease in men.”

    “[There was] an unexpectedly powerful protective relation of dietary potassium to all cause mortality,” the study concluded.
