Potassium citrate - 90 capsules

300mg potassium citrate per capsule - for the nervous system, muscle function, blood pressure and water balance

Potassium is an important intracellular mineral and responsible for the water distribution in the body. It can be of importance for the cardiac activity as well as the normal irritability of the muscles and nerves. Furthermore, it is necessary for activating numerous enzymes.

Potassium is the natural antagonist of sodium

The balance between the two minerals potassium and sodium is a condition for an accurate water content in the cells as well as the regulation of many physiological processes in the body.
Fast food and processed foods often contain too much table salt (source of sodium) and too little potassium. Most people’s daily salt consumption exceeds the recommended amount of five grams per day by at least double. It is commonly known that too much salt in food increases the risk for high blood pressure (hypertension).
A too high intake of salt through foods can also lead to an increased calcium excretion by the kidneys. Potassium counteracts sodium and reduces the loss of calcium.

Occurrence in food

Potassium is primarily contained in plant-based foods such as bananas, potatoes, spinach and champignon mushrooms. Good sources of potassium are also legumes, brewer’s yeast and dried fruits.

Bioavailability of potassium

Potassium citrate is the potassium salt of citric acid and can be resorbed by the body quickly. A potential excess of potassium or citrate ions is excreted with the urine. The bioavailability of potassium citrate is higher than the bioavailability of potassium carbonate. The resorption of citrate is up to 66% higher than the resorption of carbonate.
