Potassium Gluconate Powder
Health Benefits of Potassium Gluconate
Potassium Gluconate is important in the prevention of Hypokalemia or the condition where the body experiences a low supply of Potassium. Hypokalemia is rarely caused by a Potassium-deficient diet but is usually caused by severe diarrhea, vomiting and increased urination.
A Hypokalemia patient show signs of this disorder in the form of arrhythmia, slow muscle reflexes, problems in bowel movement, muscle weakness and abnormal electrical activities of the heart.
Another important benefit of Potassium Gluconate is its ability to balance the body's acid-base content to maintain the body's normal metabolism and physiological functions. Potassium produces alkaline salts which are products of a weak base and a strong acid combination preventing an extremely acidic body environment.
Potassium Gluconate acts as the body's natural diuretic. Diuretics are substances that stimulate the production of urine and promotes the removal of excess water content from the body. Potassium Gluconate as a diuretic is therefore important in the treatment of kidney diseases, cirrhosis of the liver, hypertension and other heart ailments due to its cleansing effect to the body.
Potassium Gluconate, together with other major electrolytes ensures a balance of electrolyte content inside and outside of body cells.
Potassium Gluconate also called Potassium D-Gluconate, is important in ensuring normal heart beat, converting our food intake to energy that we can use daily, promoting growth of muscle cells and properly balancing the body's water content.
