Description
  • Potassium in the form of highly bioavailable potassium citrate
  • Helps in supporting normal muscle function 
  • Supports the maintenance of optimal blood pressure
  • Supports the functioning of the nervous system 

Swanson Potassium Citrate is a dietary supplement that contains potassium in the form of potassium citrate. This form is distinguished by high bioavailability and resulting ease absorption of potassium ions.   

Potassium is a macronutrient essential for the proper functioning of the body. The human body's main storage place for potassium is the intracellular compartment. It contains nearly 90% of the body's total potassium. Primary sources of this element for humans are fruits and vegetables such as bananas, potatoes, avocados, and green vegetables. Unfortunately, dietary errors, intense workouts, and heavy sweating, as well as the use of diuretics may increase the risk of potassium deficiency. 

Potassium participates in regulating the body's water balance. As a sodium antagonist, it prevents excessive sodium transfer to the cells. Excess sodium in cells can cause fluid retention, which in turn promotes damage to cell structures.    

Potassium is important for the nervous and muscular systems. This element is involved in the processes of generating nerve impulses and determines proper nerve conduction. Disorders of potassium metabolism may result in impaired smooth muscle function and abnormalities of the peripheral and central nervous system (including paresthesias, impaired concentration, hyperactivity, or apathy).  

Potassium helps maintain proper blood pressure. Experts suggest that the average diet, based on processed foods, provides too much sodium and too little potassium, which may increase the risk of developing hypertension. Several studies show a correlation between low potassium intake and elevated blood pressure. 

In conclusion, Swanson Potassium Citrate is a product that enriches the diet with potassium. The form of the used potassium is characterized by high bioavailability and excellent absorption, so it effectively supports the fight against deficiencies.

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.


 

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.
