Potassium Gluconate Powder Overview
NOW Food's Potassium Gluconate is an absorbable form of the valuable mineral potassium in an easy-to-use powder. There are many reasons a person may want to use a potassium supplement. When illness or exercise cause extreme fluid loss, both sodium and potassium need to be replenished. Those who retain excess water from over-consuming salt and sodium can also help put things back in balance with NOW Potassium Gluconate. Potassium can also have a balancing effect on blood pressure too. And if you don't eat a lot of fresh food, chances are you aren't getting enough potassium, most people don't, and processing destroys much of the potassium content of foods.
Potassium Gluconate Powder Description from Now
Potassium is an essential mineral that is widely distributed among food sources, with especially high levels present in fruits and vegetables. Potassium is critical for the maintenance of normal whole-body and cellular fluid levels, as well as for the maintenance of acid-base balance. It is also necessary for proper muscle contraction, the maintenance of healthy heart function, and for the transmission of nerve impulses.
