8 Signs You’re Not Getting Enough Potassium

6. You feel faint or dizzy

Lower potassium level does not only affect your heartbeat or muscle contraction, but it can also lead to unconsciousness. If there is a high drop in potassium level in your body, your heart will beat very slowly. It will be enough to make you feel feeble, and you will ultimately pass out.

Many factors could cause the dizziness and make you feel shaky, but it is better to consult a doctor straight away if you experience this kind of notion.

7. You experience constipation

Inadequate levels of potassium not only slow down the other body functions but also majorly affect your digestive system. It is one of the causative agents of the abdominal cramps and bloating. You could suffer from constipation, gas troubles and irritated GI tract.

It sounds crazy but elevating the potassium level will improve your bowel movements. But keep in mind that potassium is not only the cause of constipation. There are other factors as well.
