Potassium-Rich Foods Preserve Muscle Mass
A recent study from the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that plant with potassium rich foods help preserve muscle mass as people age. In the three-year study of about 400 volunteers ages 65 and over, researchers concluded that volunteers with potassium-rich
diets had 3.6 more pounds of lean muscle mass than volunteers with 50% less potassium in their diets. The authors noted that most healthy men and women (65+) lose about 4.4 pounds of lean tissue every ten years.
