Potassium is one of the most important elements present in the body. It is responsible for maintaining the water-electrolyte balance and acid-base balance in the body and protects against excessive fluid retention. In addition, it activates several important enzymes.
Potassium is found in many widely available and frequently consumed products – tomatoes, bananas, and potatoes are an excellent source of this element. Nevertheless, potassium deficiencies are quite common. This problem applies especially to physically active people because heavy sweating is associated with large losses of potassium and other electrolytes.
Potassium has a beneficial effect on the condition of the heart and circulatory system. It works great in people with hypertension and heart rhythm disorders. It may also reduce the risk of stroke. In addition, it is essential for the health of the nervous and muscular systems. In addition, it promotes the improvement of bone mineral density and protects against osteoporosis. Potassium deficiency may interfere with the transformation of glucose into glycogen, which leads to muscle weakness and decreased muscular capacity.
Potassium is synergistic with many other minerals, which is why in addition to typical mono-preparations, our offer also includes supplements with potassium, enriched with other elements.
