It is believed that it may also be due to the low-potassium level in the blood that stop the expression of genes.

Potassium-rich foods may stop fatal blockages from occurring by preventing arteries from hardening, a study found. They are seemingly capable of doing so as they contain potassium, which can help protect the arteries from calcification and hardening. Some people who suffer from strokes don't experience another one in a row again.

There are many other benefits apart from these minerals and vitamins.

A recent study also found the husk of the avocado can be used to treat several diseases.

Atherosclerosis is a key risk factor for heart disease. This includes the cost of health care services, medications, and lost productivity. "Since they demonstrate the benefit of adequate potassium supplementation on prevention of vascular calcification in atherosclerosis-prone mice, and the adverse effect of low potassium intake". From that total, in 2015, more than half of the deceased were men. Also, it is necessary to carry out prevention to prevent a heart attack. Mice who fed a high-fat diet food are at risk of the heart problem, the study showed. It also comes with B vitamins and an enzyme known as amylase, which encourages normal blood sugar.

Previous research has also revealed that rigid and inflexible arteries increase a person's risk of suffering a heart attack or stroke. "All of these disease share common vascular complications, such as vascular calcification", Yawing Chen, a researcher working on the study, said.

Researchers have discovered a new way of keeping heart disease at bay. There's still a lot of work to be done to prove this nutrient makes the arteries more flexible, as the World Health Organization says.

Bananas are a good source of potassium, containing more than 400 mg of the mineral each.

Sweet potato contains 448 mgs of potassium per cup. Raisin also contains the antioxidant resveratrol, which can help control cholesterol, and reduce inflammation.

When thinking about foods rich in potassium, bananas are the first ones on the list, with about 425 mg contained in one serving.

Most doctors suggest eating four bananas per day which have 3,500 mg of potassium. This, in food-terms, is not much.
