POTASSIUM OVERVIEW

Potassium is the most abundant cation in the fluid inside of cells, and is essential for nerve impulse transmission, skeletal and smooth muscle contraction. In addition a number of enzymes require the presence of potassium for their activity, thus it plays a critical role in carbohydrate and fat metabolism, in the regulation of optimal pH balance in the body. Potassium supplementation may help

  • Improve muscular functions
  • Improve high blood pressure
  • Alleviate cramps and muscle pains
  • Improve bone health and density

POTASSIUM SUPPLEMENTS IN-DEPTH

Potassium is a very important mineral for the proper function of all cells, tissues, and organs in the body. Potassium is the most abundant cation (positively charged ion) in the fluid inside of cells, while sodium is the principal cation in the fluid outside of cells. The differences int he concentration between these two mineral create an electrochemical gradient known as the membrane potential, that is critical for nerve impulse transmission, skeletal and smooth muscle contraction, and thus muscular and heart functions. In addition a number of enzymes require the presence of potassium for their activity, thus potassium plays a critical role in carbohydrate and fat metabolism, in the regulation of optimal pH balance int he body. Inadequate potassium intake is related to alterations inmembrane potential and cellular metabolism, thus lead to muscle weakness and cramps, and intestinal paralysis, which may lead to constipation, and bloating. Severe potassium defficiency lead to muscular paralysis, and abnormal heart rhythms that can be fatal.

The right combination and sufficient intake of minerals is crucial to the proper function of every cell in human body. Without this balance and adequate levels, you will experience health problems and a decline in your quality of life. Dr. Linus Pauling the world-famous scientist and two-time Nobel Prize winner stated that we can trace every sickness, every disease, and every ailment to a mineral deficiency.
