Potassium can occur in several natural forms, but the body is most effective in processing the salt form, such as potassium chloride, or the chelated form.
Potassium is important in managing high blood pressure (HBP or hypertension) because potassium lessens the effects of sodium. The more potassium you eat, the more sodium you lose through urine. Potassium also helps to ease tension in your blood vessel walls, which helps further lower blood pressure.
Potassium is a mineral with fundamentally important physiological functions in the body. However, typical diets in the U.S. and other industrialized countries often provide less than adequate amounts of potassium. Potassium is of great physiological importance, contributing to the transmission of nerve impulses, the control of skeletal muscle contractility, and to the healthy maintenance of already normal blood pressure. Potassium is generally well absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract, and the kidneys regulate total body potassium by controlling urinary potassium excretion.
Some Symptoms of Potassium Deficiency include poor circulation, bluish tint to skin, Chronic-Fatigue Syndrome, diabetes, earaches, edema, headaches, heart palpitations, hypertension, insomnia, intestinal pain, muscle weakness, oppressive breathing, pain in the eyes, prolapsed uterus, swollen glands, tissue anemia, and water retention.
All wasting diseases are associated with loss of potassium from the tissues. Potassium deficiency disturbs the excitability of tissues and leads to paralysis of muscle, including cardiac muscle. Sodium and potassium are two of the most important ions in maintaining the homeostatic equilibrium of the body fluids.
Potassium 99 mg Chelated capsules, supplies 99 mg of elemental potassium from potassium amino acid chelate. Chelated minerals are ones that are attached to protein molecules, which in turns allows them easier transport into the bloodstream for better absorption.
