It’s no coincidence February is Potato Lovers’ Month and the American Heart Association Heart Month.
Sarah Agena with the Wisconsin Potato Growers Association says that potassium can reduce your risk for heart disease. “What many Americans don’t realize is potatoes are a good source of potassium,” explained Agena.
Consuming more potassium can help reduce the risk of high blood pressure. So show your heart a little love by incorporating potatoes into your diet.
