Product Details

Potassium has a number of important functions in the body.  Together with sodium it helps to maintain the water balance of the cells;  an imbalance in the sodium/potassium ratio can upset this water regulation and lead to high blood pressure.

Potassium is necesarry for the transmission of electrical impulses along nerve cells and is essential for converting blood sugar (glucose) to glycogen, the storage form of glucose in the muscles and liver.  This latter role in glycogen storage explains why a shortage of potassium produces great fatigue and muscle weakness.

Potassium is also needed for hormone secretion, including the stress hormones and is probably the reason why high levels of stress can lead to a potassium deficiency.  There is also some evidence that this form of potassium (potassium citrate) may be most helpful for those with high blood pressure.
