The average adult should have a minimum of 2000mg-3000mg of potassium per day. This can be achieved through the natural consumption of certain kinds of foods, particularly fru…its and vegetables. There are circumstances where potassium is readily lost and needs to be replenished in excess of the minimum daily amount listed above. The number is smaller for children and infants. Anyone with concerns of potassium deficiency, due to food allergies or special dietary requirements, where natural sources for potassium are precluded; should consult a doctor about the exact dosage they need to supplement each day. Potassium is essential for muscle health, particularly the heart. A deficiency, among other things, can cause muscle cramping and in extreme cases, can cause death. People on "low carb diets" will find they need to take special care to get the proper amount of potassium each day, as potassium is used in the ketosis process to diffuse byproduct chemicals left in the bloodstream; therefore additional potassium is needed regularly to replenish the body's potassium stores. Potassium is diffused by the kidneys, through sweat, urine or other bodily excretions. In this manner, excess potassium is removed from the body through urination and sweating. Barring kidney trouble, it is difficult to actually overdose on potassium, but not impossible. People should consume more potassium after intense sweating, if your diet is high in salt or in case of abnormal or extraordinary bodily excretions (such as vomiting or diarrhea) as these will result in a loss of potassium in the excreted bodily fluids. Supplemental potassium can also be needed if you are on certain kinds of heart medicine. Muscle cramps are typically a sign of one being low in potassium.
you should at least exercise 30 minutes a day
1,000 mg for adults / 1,300 mg for kids.
You need 5000 IJ of vitamin A :) Find out on google
Depends if you're from Kazahkstan or not. If not, you won't need that much.. Hope that Helps! CobyGrey He's right in that it depends on your lifestyle. If you drink… a descent amount of water each day, you will not need as much potassium as someone who drinks soda all the time. If you use a water pill, or you sweat for a long period of time, on a regular basis, then most likely you will need more potassium to supplement the potassium that is being flushed out. I am diabetic, and use a water pill to help keep fluid retention at a minimum, therefore, I also have to take a 750mg potassium pill to replenish my potassium loss, or I get charlie horses (severely painful) in my sleep. Basically, if you drink as much water as you flush out, you will have the necessary potassium that your body requires.
