Features

Potassium citrate tablets contain 99 mg of potassium. Potassium maintains healthy nerves and muscles in conjunction with calcium. It is an important electrolyte, supporting normal heart function and the fluid balance in the body. Citrates are extremely well-tolerated and well-absorbed making potassium citrate tablets an excellent way to get this important mineral.

Potassium deficiency most often occurs whenever the rate of loss of potassium through urinary excretion, sweat, or the gastrointestinal tract (vomiting or diarrhea) exceeds the rate of potassium intake. Severe potassium deficiency is most often the result of the use of certain diuretics, but can also occur as a result of severe diarrhea or vomiting. Because severe potassium deficiency can have serious consequences, it is best to consult a health care practitioner if you suspect you may be suffering from potassium depletion.

A potassium deficiency is also characterized by muscle weakness, fatigue, mental confusion, irritability, weakness, heart disturbances, and problems in nerve conduction and muscle contraction. Dietary potassium deficiency is less common than deficiency due to excessive fluid loss (sweating, diarrhea or urination) or the use of diuretics, laxatives, aspirin, and other drugs. Dietary potassium deficiency is typically caused by a diet low in fresh fruits and vegetables but high in sodium. It is more common to see dietary potassium deficiency in the elderly.
