A UAB team led by Yabing Chen, Ph.D., UAB professor of pathology and a Research Career Scientist at the Birmingham VA Medical Center, explored this mechanism of vascular disease three ways: living mice fed diets that varied in potassium, mouse artery cross-sections studied in culture medium with varying concentrations of potassium, and mouse vascular smooth muscle cells grown in culture medium.
Heart diseases have been leading the causes of death in American women and men - of all races and ethnic groups - for a long time. They found that especially in the case of mice who were eating high-fat foods, potassium levels significantly impacted vascular stiffness. The Sun (U.K.) reports that researchers at the University of Alabama discovered high-potassium diets could keep arteries from hardening.
There are between 40,000 and 45,000 premature deaths from kidney disease in the United Kingdom every year.
Mattis: Army 'must stand ready' in face of North Korean threat
But against this backdrop, Mattis maintained that the only job of the Army at present is to stand ready against the threat. In the past, the North Korean regime has marked national holidays with missile tests.
"The findings have important translational potential, 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". Avocados are close to the top as well, as they also contain a high amount of the substance.
High-potassium foods like bananas might be useful in preventing heart problems.
Trump Assails Republican Senator, Blames Him For Iran Nuclear Agreement
Trump nevertheless is said to be leaning toward decertifying Iran under legislation Congress passed. Decertification itself would not break the US's agreement with Iran .
If the findings are mirrored in humans, those at risk of heart disease could be prescribed potassium supplements to reduce vascular calcification. However, there are nutrients that can loosen them, such as potassium. "All of these disease share common vascular complications, such as vascular calcification". Bananas also contain a good amount of vitamin B6, and is a good source of vitamin C and fiber. Other foods rich in the mineral include potatoes, broccoli, sprouts, seeds, fish and poultry.
Avocados have become very known around the world due to its taste and many benefits. Artichokes were also presented as being useful and healthy such food items, as are seedless raisins.
Most doctors suggest eating four bananas per day which have 3,500 mg of potassium. These also provide antioxidant resveratrol, zinc, calcium, iron, and magnesium. Spinach, carrots, oranges, and bananas are just some fruits and vegetables that are rich in potassium.
The plot thickens for Harvey Weinstein as more women claim sexual assault
Other Hollywood heavyweights, including director Judd Apatow and producer Megan Ellison, have spoken out in support of the women. "He financed the first 14 years of my career - and now I know while I was profiting, others were in awful pain".
However, too much potassium can cause abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea and kidney disease.
