A Mediterranean staple, seasoned, crispy, juicy lamb is potassium packed. If lamb is not available in your area, feel free to substitute with your favorite protein with a concentration of 300 mg potassium or more in a 4 oz serving. This simple recipe is all about the spices... Mint is the secret, both fresh and dried. A couple of medical studies of women with polycystic ovarian syndrome have shown that drinking spearmint tea may reduce hirsutism (unwanted hair growth) and reduce excessively high levels of testosterone, which is a male hormone that causes symptoms of polycystic ovarian syndrome.
