If you think bananas have more potassium than any other foods, think again.

Everyone knows potassium is good for you, right? That’s why we eat so many bananas (more than apples and oranges combined). Eating more potassium works in concert with a low-sodium diet to lower blood pressure, and potassium is essential not only for heart health, but for the skeletal and muscle systems as well.

The big surprise is that bananas don’t even make the top 10 list of superfoods with the most potassium!

The Top 10 Sources of Potassium Are:

  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Orange Juice
  • Beet Greens
  • Potatoes
  • White Beans
  • Dates
  • Yogurt
  • Tomatoes
  • Raisins
  • Clams
