Why should people monitor their potassium intake?
Many people suffer from a Potassium deficiency without knowing it.
The symptoms of tiredness, exhaustion, muscle weakness, constipation or cardiac arrhythmia are rarely recognised as linked to needs for Potassium.
An insufficient intake of Potassium as part of daily nutrition, combined with diarrhoea, chronic kidney or colon disease, magnesium deficiency, or the excessive loss of bodily fluids or acidosis, can cause Potassium deficiency.
As people cannot generate their own Potassium, dietary intake is absolutely essential and it is therefore important that consumers take care of their nutrition.
What makes this Potassium Chloride a good choice?
Potassium Chloride is the type of Potassium that Doctors prescribe to prevent and treat low blood potassium levels.
This Potassium Chloride product is made in Germany and is completely natural, in that it is derived from the underground deposits that have been protected from environmental influences and contamination for more than 200 million years. From there, this is processed exclusively in secured and closed areas, protecting them from all possible environmental influences during the manufacturing process and packaging. It is simply from the best and top manufacturer in the world.
When you consider that most natural sources of potassium are fruits that are also high in carbohydrates and spike blood sugars, taking a potassium supplement can be a far better alternative. Research has not shown that any form of potassium is better than the others. What is most important, is that you are getting enough and it's source is not contaminated.
