Potassium activates many enzymatic reactions and is essential to a number of physiologic processes, including transmission of nerve impulses; contraction of cardiac, smooth, and skeletal muscles; gastric secretion; renal function; tissue synthesis; and carbohydrate metabolism. Potassium is the major cation of intracellular fluid and is essential for maintenance of acid-alkaline balance, isotonicity, and electrodynamic characteristics of the cell. In addition, it works with sodium to regulate water balance, heart rhythm, and normal nerve and muscle function.
Potassium is an essential mineral that offers a wide range of nutritional support to ensure proper physiological functioning of diverse organ systems.

Supplement Facts

Directions for Use: One capsule three times daily, or as otherwise directed by a health-care practitioner.

Other Directions: "This product does not contain wheat, gluten, corn, yeast, soy, egg, dairy products, or artificial colors, sweeteners, or flavors. This product also does not contain lactose, palmitic acid, or magnesium, calcium, or vegetable stearates.

Several prescription medications can induce potassium depletion, including aspirin, laxatives, trisalicylate (a pain medication), colchicine, corticosteroids, non-potassium sparing diuretics (such as thiazide diuretics), and sodium bicarbonate.

The botanical Glycyrrhiza glabra can result in potassium loss. Although it more commonly occurs with long-term use of more than one gram glycyrrhizin daily, some individuals can experience signs of potassium loss with lower amounts.

ACE inhibitors (captopril, enalapril, ramipril, etc.) can produce potassium retention by inhibiting aldosterone in the adrenal glands. Potassium supplementation concurrently with ACE inhibitors and potassium-sparing diuretics (spironolactone, amiloride, triamterene, etc.) should be undertaken with caution to prevent excessive potassium levels in the body."
