What Makes Pico Potassium One of the Best Potassium Supplements?
Using the same proprietary technology that created ReMag® and ReMyte®, we have made Pico Potassium™ liquid potassium supplement available to our customers. Pico Potassium™ is the best potassium supplement to use as it offers stabilized ions of potassium that are fully absorbed at the cellular level. We add it to our mineral family to help support the electrolyte balance in the body. The potassium ions of Pico Potassium™ are derived from potassium chloride originally sourced from potash mined in Saskatchewan, Canada.
What Causes Low Potassium (Hypokalemia)
The Linus Pauling Institute reports that “Potassium is considered to be a ‘nutrient of public health concern’ according to the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans since its under consumption in the US population is associated with adverse health effects.”
Low potassium (hypokalemia) has many causes. The most common cause is excessive potassium loss in urine due to prescription medications that increase urination. Also known as water pills or diuretics, these types of medications are often prescribed for people who have high blood pressure or heart disease.
Athletes who partake in long and intense exercise may lose a significant amount of potassium through sweat.
Vomiting, diarrhea or both also can result in excessive potassium loss from the digestive tract.
Occasionally, low potassium is caused by not getting enough potassium in your diet.
Who needs potassium supplements? Mostly people with low potassium and who are unable to absorb enough potassium solely through dieting. In most cases, low potassium is found by a blood test that is done because of an illness, or because you are taking diuretics.
Low potassium symptoms may include:
- Muscle weakness
- Muscle cramps
Abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias) are the most worrisome complication of very low potassium levels, particularly in people with underlying heart disease.
How much potassium should you be getting daily?
Despite its importance, very few people around the world get enough potassium. A healthy adult should aim to consume 3,500–4,700 mg daily from foods. To increase your intake, incorporate a few potassium-rich foods into your diet, such as spinach, beet greens, potatoes and fish, such as salmon.
Adults who require more potassium, as evidenced by low potassium blood tests, should consider taking a highly absorbed potassium chloride liquid supplement like Pico Potassium. Taking potassium supplements can help ensure you’re getting enough every day.
Advantages of Taking Liquid Potassium Supplements
Potassium is a very popular supplement, but many pills and powders are not well absorbed, causing digestive distress. One of the biggest liquid potassium supplement benefits Pico Potassium is that it’s better absorbed in your gut than some of the less soluble forms.
A liquid is the best form of potassium supplement because it also gives you more control over the dosage amount. Supplements in pill form come in pre-measured doses, which restricts how flexible you can be with intake. But you can easily alter the amount if you are taking potassium in a liquid form. If you need less or more one day, you will be able to make quick adjustments with liquid potassium.
