Potassium may prevent Calcified Arteries

Potassium may prevent Calcified Arteries Vascular smooth muscle cells into bone-like cells under low-potassium conditions researchers now hypothesize. The researchers also found that increased dietary potassium levels lessened vascular calcification and aortic stiffness.
