Re: Potatoes for Restless legs

Folks -- I don't have the depth of research into this topic that many of you do; however, I noticed a marked improvement in my RLS when I started upping my potassium intake, and, of course, potatoes are high in potassium.

Re: Potassium! Potassium! Potassium!

Folks -- I'm sorry to report I've hit a snag in the potassium regimen I was so excited about.

Re: Potassium! Potassium! Potassium!

badnights -- Thanks for your comments. I sort of backed in to the potassium idea. I saw some TV doctor say on a video that eating foods high in potassium can help RLS. My wife usually has bananas in the house (which I never ate), so I thought I'd try eating one a day. As I looked more into it, I det...
