Noteworthy Nutrients Vitamin C, Potassium
Pomegranates are consider a high potassium food. There is about 232 mg of potassium in a pomegranate.
Potassium 4700 mg
The RDI for potassium is 4700 mg. That means you have to have to eat about 20 pomegranates to reach this amount not to mention over 1000 calories.－Not going to happen.
What is the most potent source of potassium from pomegranates?
1 pomegranate 4.9% (RDI for potassium)
8 oz glass of pomegranate juice 9.1%

Can you have too much－too little potassium?
I have a bag for this http://www.bagtheweb.com/b/VywmMT but hope to move further in the pomegranate direction.
If your potassium becomes too high, it can cause an irregular heartbeat or a heart attack.
It is crucial that you get the potassium level in your blood tested before starting to increase the intake of potassium in your diet. High potassium levels could be fatal to your health if you are not careful. Ask your doctor all about it.
Pomegranates give you around 9.1 mg (15% the RDI of vitamin C) per pomegranate, which is roughly 1/6 the vitamin C content of an orange when compared in terms of the amount of vitamin C per 100 g.
Here is what I used to compare the vitamin C content of pomegranates and oranges.http://slism.com/calorie/107040 Orange Nutrition Facts
