Live a Heart-Healthy Life with Potassium
With high blood pressure and heart disease as the leading causes of death globally, proper intake of vitamins and supplements such as potassium is the easiest and most convenient way to counter heart problems.
Here are things you can easily follow to steer clear from an unhealthy heart:
Move it. No matter how much you weigh, sitting for long periods of time could shorten your lifespan. If you work at a desk, remember to take regular breaks to move around. Go for a quick stroll during your lunch break as taking a daily half-hour walk is even better for your physical and mental health.
Avoid processed food. Processed food tends to be high in sodium, and low in potassium. On the other hand, homemade meals are usually lower in sodium and higher in potassium. To avoid serious heart problems, consider buying more fresh produce and making meals at home.
Take a potassium supplement. Potassium, a mineral found in bananas, milk, and oranges, plays an important role in keeping us healthy. This mineral is crucial for everyone, and disrupting optimal body levels of it can be very dangerous. Increasing potassium through diet is recommended in adults with blood pressure above 120/80 who are otherwise healthy.
But for those who do not have much time to prepare healthy meals, a potassium supplement is available OTC to make it convenient to achieve the required daily dose.
Neutra K is a simpler, better, and easier way to meet a person’s potassium needs. The Philippines’ first potassium food supplement with no prescription needed, Neutra K is sourced from one of the world’s leading producers of natural ingredients. The potassium in Neutra K is non-acidic, has no artificial flavors and preservatives, and effectively promotes a more regulated acidity in the body to prevent the potential ill-effects of prolonged imbalance.
Taking Neutra K tablets twice a day – one during breakfast and another during dinner – makes it more convenient to stay healthy. Neutra K is available in 300 mg tablets, in boxes of 100 or 12, exclusively in Mercury Drugstore branches nationwide.
