Fun fact: Potassium is present in every tissue in the body! It’s required for normal cell functionality.

 

• Around 90% of digested potassium is absorbed and used to maintain normal intracellular and extracellular (presents inside and outside cells) concentrations.

• Helps to regulate fluids and mineral balance in and out of cells.

• Potassium helps maintain normal blood pressure by slowing the effect of sodium.

• Aids in muscle contractions.

• Potassium helps the body to put the proteins you eat to work, to build cells, bones and muscles.

• Essential for kidney regulation. This affects the regulation of fluid balance throughout the body.

• Plays an important role in brain and nerve function and metabolic pathways. (Metabolism functions).
