Optimal Potassium Powder by Seeking Health provides 500 mg of potassium per scoop in a refreshing lemon-lime flavor. Potassium is an essential mineral and electrolyte that is found in all of the body’s tissues and organs. It is vital for the healthy function of muscles, nerves, the heart and the kidneys.*
Fluid balance is crucial to maintaining the health of every cell in the body. Electrolytes (like potassium and sodium) are the key players in maintaining this balance. Potassium is the main electrolyte inside the cells, while sodium is the main electrolyte outside the cells. When these two minerals are balanced, the body stays hydrated and cells maintain their proper shape and function. It is important to maintain this balance, even with the modern diet consisting of packaged or processed foods that contain higher levels of sodium.*
Potassium is found in many fruits, vegetables, dairy products, nuts, grains, meat and fish. Because it is present in such a wide variety of foods, most people who eat a healthy diet are able to meet their daily recommended intake of potassium. However, low potassium levels can have serious implications for the kidneys, cardiovascular system, and bones. As the body loses fluids, potassium is flushed out, too. This means that athletes may lose more potassium by sweating and those using certain medications like diuretics may lose more potassium in the urine. For some, supplementing with potassium may be needed to maintain healthy levels of this vital nutrient.*
