What is Potassium?
Potassium is an essential electrolyte that is key to healthy cell function. Like all nutrients, a healthy balance of daily potassium intake can help you feel and perform your best. The recommended daily intake of potassium is 3500-4700 mg. However, suggest consulting the FDA’s guidelines for specific recommended daily intake.
Why is Potassium supplementation necessary?
Potassium losses through normal bodily functions, like sweating, must be replaced by the foods and beverages we consume. Foods like bananas and spinach provide an abundance of potassium. However, these foods take time to digest, and there are certain instances, as in the case of dehydration due to sports or illness, where fast replenishment of potassium is necessary. CF(Rehydrate)® provides 100 mg of potassium to help provide rapid rehydration.
When you exercise, you lose a significant amount of vital fluids and key electrolytes. High concentrations of sodium and chloride, and low concentrations of potassium, magnesium and calcium are lost as you sweat. Rapidly replenishing these nutrients with a hydrating drink is essential for recovery.
What is the role of Potassium in the body?
Potassium is nearly ubiquitous in the body. This unique electrolyte plays a vital role in helping maintain adequate blood pressure. It is also essential in nerve function, allowing electrical signals to transmit messages. Thus, ensuring potassium intake can contribute widely to internal homeostasis and comprehensive health.
