  • Potatoes have more potassium than bananas as well (as long as you eat the skin too)

  • Be careful if you take potassium tablets, too much can cause cramps and heart problems as well as too little. Eat potassium rich foods is a better way of getting extra.

  • Like the others said bananas, which contain potassium. A good multivitamin will have some too.
