Potassium Compositum

«Potassium is essential for: normal growth; muscle function and to maintain a proper degree of alkalis in body fluids.
During that process in which carbohydrates [sugars] and fats are "burned" to produce energy [ATP], different enzymes, which depend on the presence of potassium, come into play. We know that the speed with which nerve cells absorb oxygen is directly proportional to the amount of potassium present. Red blood cells, then, need Potassium to be able to carry carbon dioxide to the lungs where it is expelled in exchange of oxygen. …
Potassium is concentrated primarily in cells, while Sodium is found mostly in liquids [outside of cells]. Sodium is engaged in an eternal battle with Potassium, presumably regarding water supply. When it seems that sodium is the winner, the cells contain a higher amount of water [hold fluid], while Potassium is expelled and eliminated in the urine. When, instead, Potassium wins, large amounts of sodium and water are lost. When we undergo some kind of muscle activity, our cells lose potassium and acquire sodium. When the body is resting, sodium is expelled from the cells and is substituted by Potassium. If the diet does not contain a sufficient amount of potassium, an excess of sodium causes an increase in blood pressure. If Potassium replaces Sodium, blood pressure drops. The administration of potassium to patients with diabetes, causes a decrease in blood pressure as well as in blood sugar.
Apparently, Potassium helps come out of a coma. …
Considering the amount of sodium that we typically consume [kitchen salt], and given that Potassium is found mainly in fruits and vegetables, …
the muscle weakness that is generally recognised as inevitable consequence of advanced age may be, in large part, simply due to a diet deficient in Potassium….
The heart also needs Potassium, without which it would not be able to effectively relax between two contractions.
When you are exposed to the sun for a long time, the content of sodium in sweat tends to decrease, while the rate of potassium elimination rises up to three times the normal one….
Some of the early symptoms of potassium deficiency are: thirst, weakness and/or disorders of neuromuscular functions, absence of reflexes, paralysis, mental confusion, loss of muscle tone [soft and flabby muscles], dry skin, constipation, insomnia, slow heart rate, weak pulse, and acne occurring in teenagers…» [1].
