My son is now on his fifth session for his guitar lesson. Every time he finished one session he would always tell us all that he has learned during that day and that how impressed his instructor to him. His teacher told him that he is a fast learner.

I am full support with my kids when it comes to discovering and enhancing their talents. Even if it means spending some money, i don’t regret because it is all worth it. When it comes to their instruments I also want to give them the best so we’re looking for exceptional guitar parts to purchase to get excellent music.

My daughter is now one of the keyboardists in our Church Music Team, and I’m looking forward to see my son to play on stage using his talent to serve God as well through music.

Studies show that if Americans increased their intake of potassium, the number of people with high blood pressure would drop by about 10%. In cultures where the intake of fruits and vegetables is high, the risk of high blood pressure occurs in as few as 1% of the total population. In America, one in every three adults has high blood pressure, and it is drastically increasing in children as well.

The Third National Health and Nutritional Examination Survey (NHANES III) studied more than 17,000 adults and showed that those who already had high blood pressure and ate at least 8.5 servings of fruits and vegetables/day (providing 4100 milligrams [mg of potassium]) lowered their blood pressure by 7.2/2.8 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg), when compared to people eating only 3.5 servings/day. Some studies show that getting enough potassium is especially important for African Americans with high blood pressure.

Limiting sodium intake is still extremely important to preventing and treating high blood pressure. If you already have high blood pressure, you should try to keep your sodium intake at or below 1500 mg/day.

Diet and prescription drugs – Many nutrients besides sodium and potassium can impact your blood pressure. The best advice is always to choose a diet with a variety of whole foods and avoid processed foods, whenever possible. Too much potassium sometimes is harmful to older people and people with kidney disorders. Some diuretics are potassium sparing, meaning that you need to use caution and not consume too many potassium-rich foods.

People who take nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), ACE inhibitors, heparin, cyclosporine, Bactrim®, Septra®, or beta-blockers should not start a high-potassium diet or take potassium supplements without first talking to their doctor. Always talk to your doctor or a registered dietitian if you have any concerns.
