Potassium is the mineral for which we have the highest recommended intake and in foods, potassium is often attached to citrate. It is the citrate that alkalizes. Potassium supplementation in the form of potassium citrate alkalizes by donating citrate to the body chemistry.
Potassium is an essential mineral that offers a wide range of nutritional support to numerous physiological functions, including nerve function, nutrient metabolism, bone health, muscle function and cardiovascular health.
Bone Health: Potassium supports alkaline balance, bone cell function and bone mineralization in part by supporting calcium absorption and healthy bone resorption.
Cardiovascular Support: Potassium plays a critical role in the transmission of electrical impulses in the heart and supports healthy blood flow. Potassium also plays important roles in muscle function, mood, cranial vessel comfort and maintaining acid/alkaline balance.
Potassium is from the lime of rock. Citrate is derived from corn dextrose fermentation. Ascorbyl palmitate is derived from corn dextrose fermentation and palm oil.
