Potassium is necessary for adequate muscle contraction and rapid transmission of nerve impulses through the body. Proper conduction of nerve impulses is essential for smooth and coordinated movement of muscle as related to motion.
Potassium Helps to Support:
|∑ Healthy pressure within blood vessels*|
|∑ Healthy skin tissue*|
|∑ Healthy lipid levels*|
|∑ Healthy nerve transduction in the body*|
|∑ Cardiovascular health*|
|∑ Athletic performance*|
Potassium constitutes 5% percent of the total mineral content of the body, even though only about 3≠4 ounces are found in the body at one time. Because it is a primary electrolyte, potassium is known as a great alkalizer, important in pH and water balance. Potassium is easily absorbed, but at least 90% of it is excreted through the kidneys and bowels. Potassium is vital to the elimination of wastes in the body.
Potassium is a natural diuretic, helping your body excrete water and sodium, thus promoting healthy cardiovascular health. In fact, a lack of potassium may be a factor in salt sensitivity. Scientists believe that potassium has the ability to pump sodium out of the bodyís cells and reduce the body fluid. One study discovered that high-sodium diets significantly impact pressure within blood vessels. Further, it may be likely that relative deficiency of minerals in the diet, like potassium, calcium, and magnesium, influence salt sensitivity. Potassium may affect blood vessel tone and may modify the way blood vessels react to circulating hormones that affect pressure within blood vessels. Not only is potassiumís role in cardiovascular health quite remarkable, but it is also necessary for healthy muscle contraction.
Potassium produces healthy electrical activity in the heart and rapid transmission of nerve impulses throughout the body. Heartbeat irregularities are commonly considered a classic sign of potassium deficiency. Potassium plays a vital role in nerve function and cellular integrity by regulating the transfer of nutrients into the cell.
Potassium attracts oxygen to tissues; lack of it reduces tissue oxygenation. Potassium aids in good muscle tone, correct positioning of vital organs, and a strong heart. If potassium is depleted, it is likely that albumin, sugar, gelatinous substances, sodium, and chlorine are also in short supply or not fully assimilated. The body clearly needs a certain amount of sodium to support cardiovascular health. It also needs certain levels of other minerals, such as potassium, to keep sodium levels in the body from getting too high. Research shows that controlling the salt and water content at the cellular level with proper potassium levels promotes healthy cellular function, energy production, and overall biological integrity. Low-sodium, high-potassium environments can support proper cell protein configuration.
Potassium also supports the adrenal glands. These glands are often severely impaired from a protracted period of functioning in a continual state of stress response.
Potassium supplements help to support healthy sugar balance in the body.
Potassium is necessary for healthy muscle contraction and rapid transmission of nerve impulses through the body. Proper conduction of nerve impulses is essential for smooth and coordinated movement of muscle as related to motion.
Potassium is essential for supporting nerve impulses, maintaining acid-base balance, and converting blood glucose to glycogen (stored carbohydrates that make up the bodyís priority fuel reserves). It also helps widen the blood vessels during exercise, thereby increasing blood flow to help carry away heat.
