You know how bananas are notorious for their potassium content? Well, the truth is, avocados actually have more potassium. As a matter of fact, one avocado has more than two times more potassium compared to a banana. Nevertheless, even though it’s high in potassium, an entire avocado still only satisfies 28% of the potassium you need everyday. Thus, you need five to ten servings of fruits and vegetables every day, because they’re the richest source of potassium, and each contains only a small amount. Finally, in case you’re wondering, potassium is desirable because it increases your body’s excretion of sodium. This is important because sodium consumption is the leading preventable risk factor for death worldwide.
