Always choose natural meals instead of supplements.

However, if you must, it will vary from person to person and you should consult a nutritionist, where he will analyze your height, weight, and needs. Another good source of potassium: Mushrooms.

Bananas are relatively high in potassium, but you need 4,700 mg of potassium per day and you'd have to eat about 11 bananas every day to get that. Potatoes are higher, at about 950 mg if you eat the skin as well. This all gets a lot harder if you're on a low/no carb diet. Eat Leafy green vegetables, red meat. Use No Salt (half salt/half potassium) and take a supplement. Very few humans can get all of what they need just from food every day.

Eat bananas, plenty of potassium! i cant take banana due to unavoidable circumstances please advice for substitute If your unavoidable circumstances are getting migraine headaches from eating bananas then that may be from the quick rise in your potassium levels; some people are very sensitive in this way. If that is the case you can try eating the banana in smaller pieces throughout the day and with other foods. That usually takes care of that problem. If your unavoidable circumstance is that you can't get any bananas in the market where you live, then there are plenty of other fruits and vegetables that contain large amounts of potassium.
