Solgar Potassium Description

Potassium is an essential mineral needed by the body. It is found naturally in foods like green leafy vegetables, sunflower seeds, potatoes and bananas. It is vital for muscle activity. As an important electrolyte, it regulates nerve signals from the brain and spinal column to muscles, thus promoting healthy neuromuscular function. It also promotes proper fluid balance in the body and helps to attract nutrients into cells.

What is Potassium used for?

Potassium is one of the most important minerals in the human body. It is involed in a lot of cellular functions such as cell signalling, muscle contraction and in some instances, works with sodium together for proper cell function. It is thus very important to maintain a healthy potassium to sodium ratio, especially in the context of blood pressure and blood volume. Potassium is mainly taken to prevent or correct hypokalemia, or as an electrolyte to replenish fluids.

How much Potassium should I take?

The recommended daily intake of potassium is 4700mg. Before taking Potassium, it is best to get a blood test to check your levels. For the purpose of preventing Potassium deficiency knowing that you consume foods low in Potassium and have a history of Potassium deficiency, you can take a low dose Potassium supplement. Starting with a strength of 99mg would be optimal. For treating Potassium deficiency, a strength of 500mg tablet would usually be used and your total daily intake may be greater than 47000mg. How much you take will be determined by blood tests especially if taken at high doses. But generally speaking it would be hard to overdose on 99mg of Potassium even if multiple tablets are taken.

When should I take Potassium?

Potassium can be taken any time of day, preferably with food to reduce stomach upset. If used for dehydration, remember to drink plenty of fluids, taking it multiple times a day as needed.

What are the side effects of Potassium?

Potassium tablets can cause stomach upset, but apart from that, most side effects are associated with overdoses, so you should watch out for signs of hyperkalemia. These include: heart palpitations, chest pain, muscle weakness or numbess as well as nausea/vomiting. Hyperkalemia can be life threatening so be sure to check with a physician before taking Potassium.
