Potassium Potassium

Olimp Potassium is a dietary supplement that replenishes potassium deficiency in the body. It is recommended particularly to people who train intensively, abuse salt and consume too few vegetables. The supplement is also beneficial in order to improve circulation and eliminate cramps.

Potassium is one of the most important cations and electrolytes in the human body. Together with chlorides and sodium, it forms a very important component of extracellular fluids, ensuring the maintenance of a constant osmotic pressure. It is a component of the cellular cytoplasm and causes higher permeability of cell membranes, preventing cellular swelling. It acts antagonistically to calcium. It is an essential element of many reactions in the body, it participates in various enzymatic processes. Potassium is necessary for the synthesis of proteins in ribosomes.

Therapeutically, it is used in conditions of potassium deficiency and in case of an overdose of digitalis glycosides (taken to stimulate the heart). Properly high potassium intake may reduce the risk of stroke, lower blood pressure and counteract the loss of muscle mass. Potassium content in blood is 3.5 - 5.5 mmol/l and up to 95% of the potassium present in the human body is in the intracellular fluid (there it is as high as 150 mmol/l). It is excreted in the urine and also during an intense physical exercise.

Electrolyte balance
The human body in 60% consists of water, 40% of which are intracellular fluids. The remaining 20% is in the blood, cerebrospinal fluid or between cells. The amount of water in extracellular and intracellular fluids depends on the concentration of electrolytes, in particular, sodium and potassium. Improper osmolarity may lead to heart and kidney problems.

Effects on the nervous system
Potassium helps in the transmission of nerve impulses in the body. Therefore, it participates in the transmission of information from the brain to other parts of the body. This affects the better functioning of the heart, muscle contractility, and even a quick reflex. Reduced amount of potassium causes the ability to generate nerve impulses to decrease. The proper level of potassium is necessary to maintain the appropriate functioning of the nervous system cells.

Normal blood pressure and cardiovascular health
Too low potassium intake often affects excessively high blood pressure and the development of cardiovascular diseases. Usually, in order to lower the pressure, the amount of sodium consumed has to be reduced (individuals whose diet is mainly based on highly processed food and fast food are at the greater risk of excessive sodium consumption), while the proper supply of potassium is equally important. In addition, the mineral improves the functioning of the heart and regulates its rhythm. According to studies, the recommended daily amount of potassium (about 3.500-4000 mg per day) allows the reduction of the risk of death from ischemic heart disease by up to 49% (compared to the too low intake of 1000 mg/day). 

According to studies, adequate potassium intake may reduce the arterial stiffness, which turns out to be helpful in the treatment of atherosclerosis. It can also help to in the prevention of smooth muscle calcification. Prevention of calcifications is also a preventive action against kidney stones.

Good condition of bones and muscles
Potassium allows maintaining an alkaline environment in the body. A disadvantageous condition for the organism is the metabolic acidity, causing nitrogen excretion, decreased bone mineral density and significant weakness and destruction of muscle. Supplementation of potassium helps in maintaining the optimal mass of bones (counteracting osteoporosis) and muscles. It is recommended in particular to elderly people and people with ketoacidosis (diabetic).

Consequences of potassium deficiency
Too low level of potassium is referred to as hypokalemia. Mild deficiencies usually do not manifest any symptoms, whereas in major potassium deficiencies fatigue, weakness, muscle pains as well as constipation may occur. Excess potassium deficiency leads to serious weakness and even muscle paralysis and sporadic cramps. These are accompanied by tingling, numbness, and itching, especially on the feet, hands and entire limbs. Constipation is then very painful, and respiratory function is threatened.

In summary, Olimp Potassium is a dietary supplement that allows replenishing of potassium deficiencies resulting from improper diet and frequent and intense workouts. It is recommended especially for athletes and individuals who care about physical activity. It is also recommended for people who do not pay too much attention to a proper diet and consume large amounts of processed food. The supplement helps to eliminate muscle cramps, it may lower blood pressure, prevent excessive water retention, and facilitates transmission of nerve impulses.

Potassium citrate

Information

Potassium citrate is an organic form of potassium, which is characterized by high level of absorption. This element is essential in the proper functioning of the organism. It regulates water balance, thanks to which it is possible to maintain homeostasis.

Potassium also helps to maintain proper blood pressure and is essential to maintain proper work of the heart. I takes part in the proper functioning of the nervous system - it takes part in nerve impulse conduction and supports the work of the brain by its oxygenation.

Introducing potassium to a diet is incredibly vital in case of sportsmen, as during long-lasting effort, it decreases the risk of the organism’s dehydration. It also ensures proper work of muscles. This element is also essential in the process of protein synthesis.

Potassium

Information

Potassium and sodium regulate the body's water resources, ensuring normal heart rhythm. Maintaining the proper level of potassium provides the proper oxidation of the brain, lowers blood pressure, increases the permeability of cell membranes (as an antagonist of calcium). It is a base-forming element. It is widely used in sports diet before and after training in the form of supplements, nutrients, vitamin-mineral preparations and minerals, concentrates and ready, isotonic and hypertonic beverages. Natural sources of acquisition of potassium are: vegetable products (bananas, citrus fruits, melons, mint leaves, green vegetables, potatoes) and animal products (sea fish, meat). Potassium is present in the form of organic compounds: citric acids, and fumarates gluconates and inorganic (chlorides, sulfates, oxides and carbonates).
Potassium deficiency (hypokalemia): excessive tiredness, headaches and irritability, problems with sleeping, muscle cramps, constipation. Potassium levels may drop sharply in the event of a reduction in blood sugar levels, prolonged starvation, severe diarrhea. They can occur when too much of strong coffee is consumed, with alcohol abuse and when eating too much sweets.
The excess of potassium (hyperkalemia) is often the cause of depression, hypotension, tingling in the extremities.
