Fundamental Potassium

Chelated Potassium Supplement - Highly Absorbed Potassium

Importance of Potassium In Health

Potassium is one of life's most precious minerals. A potassium supplement is important for the heart, kidneys and other internal organs to work optimally.  Fundamental Potassium is potassium aspartate (an amino acid chelate of potassium and aspartic acid) which is the chelated form of potassium, making it a highly absorbed form of potassium. In addition, Fundamental Potassium contains vitamin B6 and niacinamide for optimum effectiveness.

When you ask people what they know about potassium, they usually smile and say "bananas." That's because bananas are rich sources of this important mineral. Health experts say that potassium is the third most abundant mineral in the body, and yet so little is understood about the role it plays and the benefits it provides. Sadly many people are deficient in potassium.

Why Potassium Aspartate?

Blending aspartate with potassium enhances the benefits of potassium. Before discussing the benefits of potassium and the signs of potassium deficiency, we'll explain "aspartate." Aspartate - or aspartic acid - is an amino acid. While it is not an essential amino acid, it helps the body eliminate toxic wastes. It also maintains the stability and strength of nerves, releases sufficient amounts of energy from fats, carbohydrates and proteins during metabolic processes.

Benefits of Potassium

Note that there is link between potassium and sodium. If your intake of sodium is high, you may have lower levels of potassium. People who watch their blood pressure will want to reduce their sodium intake, but there are advantages to increasing their potassium intake as well. The reason is that potassium is an electrolyte that when dissolved in the bloodstream, can take on a positive or negative charge. Sodium and chloride are also electrolytes so the body's proper functions rely on the balance of these minerals-electrolytes.

Potassium is found mostly inside cells. It helps to relay nerve reflexes and impulses. It plays a role in supporting a normal heart rate and supporting normal blood pressure levels. It is also responsible for initiating muscle contractions.

Potassium and High Blood Pressure - Sodium/Potassium Balance

Working in tandem with sodium, potassium acts by balancing the water and acids in our body. It helps boost metabolism by synthesizing protein and carbohydrates, aiding in proper digestion.

Potassium also plays an important role in the conversion of glucose (blood sugar) into energy which is stored in the muscles and in the liver.

Potassium's other benefits include:

  • Ensuring that the brain receives enough energy to promote mental alertness
  • Facilitating the elimination of waste material from the body
  • Promoting relaxation and calm nerves

Potassium Deficiency

If individuals followed a healthy, natural diet, they probably already get the recommended daily requirement of potassium.

Here are some natural sources of potassium:

Bananas (of course!)
Lima beans
Bran cereal
Sunflower seeds/Almonds
Watermelon and melon
Poultry and lamb
Celery, broccoli, asparagus
Fresh oranges

While we should do everything we can to avoid being deficient in potassium, we should not overdo it either. Consult your physician if you plan to take potassium supplements, especially if you have been diagnosed with a kidney or liver malfunction or have had some cardiac problems.

Signs that you have too much potassium are nausea, irregular heartbeats, difficulty in concentrating, and fatigue. Excessive amounts of potassium can be toxic.

Experts agree that it is better to get our potassium from food. But with today's lifestyles, no one seems to have the time to make wholesome meals. This is where a chelated potassium supplement is the next best logical step. But do take your potassium supplements with food as they may cause an upset stomach.
