Potassium Broth Recipe

This potassium broth recipe makes a fantastic addition during a fast or detox.

It helps flush your body of unwanted toxins while adding nourishing vitamins and minerals to your diet.

Potassium is a mineral that is essential for maintaining the pH levels in our body fluids. It plays an important role with the following functions:

  • Regulates blood pressure
  • Muscle function
  • Nervous system
  • Heart function
  • Kidney function
  • Adrenal functions
  • Bone mass and strength

Earlier studies have shown that low potassium intake could be a significant factor in the development of high blood pressure which can increase the risk of stroke.

Some signs of potassium deficiency may include dry skin, acne, constipation, depression, fluctuations in heartbeat, muscular fatigue, weakness, headaches, chills, cognitive impairment and unquenchable thirst.

Ingredients:

4 carrots, washed with skin
2 red potatoes washed with skins
1 onion chopped
5 cloves garlic
3 stalks celery
1cup of parsley (no need to chop)
1 cup of spinach (no need to chop)
1/2 head red cabbage
1/2 bunch broccoli
1 tomato (optional)
10 cups of water
Sea salt and pepper to taste

If available, always try to purchase organic vegetables which are pesticide and chemical free.

Preparation:

Chop all clean vegetables and place into a soup pot. Bring to a boil then simmer about 2 hours. Strain into a clean container and discard vegetables.

This broth will keep in the refrigerator for 5 days or months in the freezer.

This broth is mainly used as an addition when fasting or when potassium levels need to be increased.

There are other foods you may choose to eat that are rich in potassium such as apricots, avocados, bananas, lima beans, brown rice, dates, figs, garlic, nuts, potatoes, raisins, spinach, and winter squash.

There are also some herbs that contain this mineral such as hops, nettle, sage, skullcap, catnip and red clover.
