Potassium Magnesium (citrate) -
Potassium and magnesium are essential for healthy nerve impulse function, muscle contraction, cardiovascular function, acid/alkaline balance and carbohydrate and nutrient metabolism. Magnesium also plays an important role in facilitating potassium utilization, helping to provide optimal support from this important combination.
What Is It?
Potassium and magnesium provide wide range support
for numerous physiological functions, including nerve
function, nutrient metabolism, bone health, muscle
function and cardiovascular health. Magnesium also plays
an important role in facilitating potassium utilization,
helping to provide optimal support from this important
Uses For Potassium Magnesium
Cardiovascular Support: Potassium plays a critical role
in the transmission of electrical impulses in the heart
and supports healthy blood flow. Magnesium provides
broad-spectrum cardiovascular support, including
arterial function, endothelial function, c-reactive protein
metabolism and lipid metabolism. A meta-analysis of
20 randomized trials suggests that it also promotes
healthy systolic and diastolic function. In one 15-year
study involving 4,637 young adults, higher intakes of
magnesium were associated with healthy cardiovascular
function and glucose utilization. Magnesium and
potassium also play important roles in muscle function,
mood and cranial vessel comfort.*
Bone Health: Magnesium is essential bone matrix
mineral that promotes healthy bone metabolism. A trial
involving 2,038 older individuals indicated that higher
intakes of magnesium were positively associated
with bone mineralization for certain individuals.
Potassium supports alkaline balance, bone cell function
and bone mineralization in part by enhancing calcium
absorption and supporting healthy bone resorption. In
one randomized, double blind trial involving postmenopausal
women, potassium citrate supported healthy
bone composition of the neck, vertebrae and hip.*
Nutrient Metabolism: Magnesium activates the enzymes
necessary for a number of physiological functions,
including the metabolism of macronutrients, energy
production and the utilization of calcium, phosphorus,
sodium, and potassium. Potassium is also important in
maintaining acid/alkaline balance.*
What Is The Source?
Magnesium and potassium are from the lime of rock.
Aspartate is synthetic. Citrate is derived from corn dextrose
fermentation. Ascorbyl palmitate is derived from
corn dextrose fermentation and palm oil.
Are There Any Potential Side Effects Or
If pregnant or lactating, consult your physician before
taking this product. Magnesium can cause loose stools.
Potassium can cause GI upset, nausea, diarrhea or
vomiting in sensitive individuals. Consult your physician
for more information.
Are There Any Potential Drug Interactions?
Magnesium should be taken separately from
bisphosphonate medications. Individuals taking ACE
inhibitors, angiotensin receptor blockers or potassiumsparing
diuretics may require monitoring of potassium
levels. Magnesium may also be contraindicated with
certain antibiotics. Consult your physician for more
