Potassium contributes to the maintenance of normal blood pressure, the normal functioning of the nervous system and to normal muscle function. Magnesium contributes to a reduction of tiredness and fatigue, supports electrolyte balance, the nervous system, normal muscle function, normal psychological function and the maintenance of normal bones and teeth.
Note: Citrate forms of minerals are an organic presentation to ensure effective delivery utilisation in the body.
Citrates are actual components of the krebs cycle. Evidence suggests that minerals chelated to krebs cycle intermediates are far better absorbed, utilised, and tolerated than inorganic mineral forms such as carbonates, oxides, and chlorides.
Dosage: Maintenance dose – 1 capsule daily with food. It has been suggested that between 2.5-5.0g of potassium have been used for hypertension. The combination with magnesium is likely to reduce this requirement.
