½ cup of mushrooms contains 280mg of Potassium.
Potassium is a mineral that is found in most foods. Potassium helps to balance fluids and minerals in your body and it helps your body maintain a normal blood pressure.
Potassium helps your muscles contract and your nerves function normally.
* You may need more potassium if you have hypokalemia (low potassium levels) or high blood pressure, or if you are taking diuretics. Diuretics cause your body to lose potassium.
* You may need less potassium in your diet if you have hyperkalemia (high potassium levels) or kidney disease.
See a Registered Dietitian to discuss your dietary needs, and learn how to balance high- and low-potassium foods in each meal.
