What is Swanson Ultra Potassium Citrate?
We all know potassium on the elementary chart - so we know that it's a mineral - but what you probably didn't know is just how important it is to the running of your body. As a dietary mineral and electrolyte it plays a major role in balancing the fluids around our bodies.
Perhaps most famoulsy naturally occurring in bananas, it can also be sourced from orange juice, potatoes, fish, meat and whole grains. To understand the role it plays in our health, perhaps it would be best to understand how our body consumes it first.
As an electrolyte - one of the essential minerals that our bodies use to properly metabolise food into energy, it is crucial. In order for our bodily energy to transfer from neurons to other cells, we require a proper balance of potassium on both sides of our cell walls. This has a huge knock on effect on to the day to day running of our blood pressure regulation, converting glucose to glycogen, kidney health maintenance, heart and liver maintenance and even keeping us safe from strokes.
Swanson Ultra Potassium Citrate is a is a potassium salt of citric acid. This incredibly bioavailable crystalline powder is considered to be state of the art when it comes to creating a truly ‘body-ready' version of potassium.
What is Swanson Ultra Potassium Citrate used for?
The energy conductivity that potassium enables is important not just in its primary role but in its secondary and tertiary roles too.
Potassium plays an incredibly important role in controlling our blood pressure. By working with sodium to keep our water balance at a constant, it can actually help lower blood pressure. By increasing the amount of potasium in our body, we can even control the amount of sodium we excrete. Lower sodium levels mean less chance of hypertension.
The greatest cause of stroke today is high blood pressure (hypertension). A daily dose of Swanson Ultra Potassium Citrate can lower those risks massively and not just by lowering sodium levels either.
Through a series of complicated electrical and chemical interactions, Swanson Ultra Potassium Citrate will also help regulate your muscle contractions, most importantly of all - your heart contractions.
