It helps relax the walls of blood vessels, reducing tension and promoting proper blood flow. Additionally, potassium helps balance the levels of fluids and electrolytes in the body, which also contributes to healthy blood pressure. Therefore, consuming foods high in potassium, such as fruits, vegetables, and legumes, can be beneficial for maintaining optimal blood pressure levels.

    Vegetarian diets are lower in Iron

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement "Vegetarian diets are lower in Iron" is incorrect. Vegetarian diets can provide sufficient amounts of iron if they are well-balanced and include iron-rich plant-based foods such as legumes, tofu, spinach, and fortified cereals. While it is true that some plant-based sources of iron may be less easily absorbed by the body compared to animal-based sources, a well-planned vegetarian diet can still meet the iron requirements of an individual. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Iron stores are much lower in vegetarians

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Iron is an essential mineral found in various foods, with red meat being one of the richest sources. Vegetarians, who exclude meat from their diet, may have lower iron stores due to the absence of this major dietary source. While plant-based foods like legumes, whole grains, and leafy greens also contain iron, it is in a form that is less easily absorbed by the body. Therefore, it is likely that iron stores are lower in vegetarians compared to individuals who consume meat.

    Zinc from plant is lower  absorbed

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Zinc from plants is generally lower absorbed by the human body compared to zinc from animal sources. This is because plants contain phytates, which are compounds that bind to zinc and inhibit its absorption. Additionally, the bioavailability of zinc in plant-based foods can be affected by factors such as cooking methods and the presence of other nutrients. Therefore, it is true that zinc from plants is lower absorbed.
