Why combine potassium and magnesium?
Potassium is found naturally in fish, potatoes, bananas and most vegetables. Magnesium is found in, for example, whole grain products, meat, legumes and nuts. In other words, it is found in much of what we normally eat, but at times it can still be difficult to get in a sufficient amount. In the body, these minerals act in a similar way, contributing to neuromuscular functions, i.e. the function of the muscles and the nerves that belong to them, and sending signals from the brain to the muscles to relax. Both potassium and magnesium are among the electrolytes that are important for salt and water balance in the body. In particular, magnesium is well known for its effect on muscle relaxation ability, and is popular both among people who exercise and before going to bed. Along with potassium, there are also studies that indicate that it helps counteract fatigue and exhaustion. Too low an amount of potassium and magnesium in the body can thus manifest itself as feelings of fatigue and weakness.
Why is citrate used?
Healthwell’s Potassium+Magnesium contains potassium citrate and magnesium citrate. Citrate-bound minerals are well absorbed in the body and are therefore preferable to, for example, magnesium oxide and potassium oxide.
The capsules contain 843 mg of potassium citrate per dose, of which 300 mg is elemental potassium, and 800 mg is magnesium citrate, 240 mg of elemental magnesium, i.e. the actual amount that the body absorbs.
Potassium and magnesium are also linked to kidney function and help regulate blood pressure - they contribute to lower blood pressure. High blood pressure can pose risks to cardiovascular health. There are many studies that have examined the effects of potassium on blood pressure and that have shown its effect, not least in combination with magnesium. Magnesium also has a promoting effect on the flow of potassium to the cells. Healthwell’s Potassium+Magnesium gives you the opportunity to create a balance between these important minerals in a simple and easy way, every day.
