What is Potassium Citrate?
Potassium is a mineral found in foods such as bananas, orange juice and potatoes. Like sodium and chloride, potassium is an electrolyte, meaning it takes on a positive or negative charge when dissolved in fluids. Potassium helps regulate the body''s fluid levels.* It''s also important for the transmission of nerve impulses, the contraction of muscles and energy production.*
Potassium citrate is a form of potassium in which potassium ions are bonded to citric acid. Citrates are highly bioavailable, meaning they''re readily absorbed by cells.
