Potassium Compound Salts, 100g
Potassium is the chief cation of intracellular fluid, and many of its salts are used as electrolyte replenishers and antihypokalemics. Many degenerative diseases suffer the loss of potassium ions in the cells, and the invasion of sodium ions along with water into the cells. This brings on edema, loss of electrical potentials in the cells, improper enzyme formation, reduced cell oxidation, and other cell malfunctions. The building of almost all enzymes by the cells requires potassium as a catalyst.
There is no specific RDA for potassium. It is thought that 2 to 2.5 grams per day are needed. In cooking, canned goods and processed foods potassium is depleted but sodium is increased. Potassium, the mineral, may reduce hypertension and arrhythmia and may prevent strokes. Potassium is very important in the human body, as it helps regulate the water balance and the acid-base balance in blood and tissue, and is thought to be very important in cellular biochemical reactions and energy metabolism. In medicine, potassium is one of the most commonly prescribed minerals because it is crucial to cardiovascular and nerve functions, and because it is lost in diuretic therapy.
Potassium compound salts is intended to be taken as a solution and is made from 33% each of potassium acetate, potassium monophosphate, and potassium gluconate, diluted in 32 Fluid Ounces(900ml) of distilled water. Typical dosage varies from 1 to 4 teaspoonfuls 10 times a day of the prepared solution (total 3.5 to 14 grams of potassium daily). They are added to orange, apple-carrot, or green leaf juices, but not to pure carrot juice. The primary benefit of potassium compound salts is to treat the tissue damage syndrome (TDS) which is found in all cancers.
