Biotics Research is pleased to announce a new product, Potassium-HP® (with Magnesium). Developed in conjunction with Alex Vasquez, DC, ND, DO, Director of the Medical Board of Advisors for Biotics Research Corporation, Potassium-HP® (with Magnesium) is an easy to use, high potency mineral supplement supplied as a powder which dissolves readily in water. Each teaspoon serving supplies 1,200 mg of elemental Potassium (as potassium citrate) and 120 mg of elemental Magnesium (as magnesium citrate malate).
Usage of Biotics Research Potassium-HP™:
With increased appreciation for the need for potassium, the Institute of Medicine and National Academy of Sciences recently increased the minimal "Adequate Intake" of potassium to 4.7 grams per day. Less than 10% of Americans are meeting this level of potassium intake, and the failure to consume enough potassium, magnesium, and alkalinizing substances such as citrate has negative consequences for the health of bones, the brain, the endocrine system, and the ability to excrete toxins. Clinicians can now address these problems with Potassium-HP® (with Magnesium), providing potassium, magnesium, and citrate.
According to the Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies (Dietary Reference intakes: Water, Potassium, Sodium Chloride and Sulfate. February 11, 2004), "Adults should consume at least 4.7 grams of potassium per day to lower blood pressure, blunt the effects of salt, and reduce the risk of kidney stones and bone loss. However, most American women 31 to 50 years old consume no more than half of the recommended amount of potassium, and men’s intake is only moderately higher. There was no evidence of chronic excess intakes of potassium in apparently healthy individuals and thus no UL [upper limit of intake] was established."
Mix one (1) scoop of Potassium-HP™ with 6 (6) ounces of water each day as a dietary supplement or as otherwise directed by a healthcare professional.
Precautions / Interactions for Biotics Research Potassium-HP™:
WARNING: Ask a doctor before use if you have kidney disease or a potassium-restricted diet. High-potency potassium products should only be used under the advice and supervision of a healthcare professional. Minor gastrointestinal (GI) complaints have been reported by those taking significant amounts of potassium citrate. These may be reduced by taking this product with food or reducing the dose. If GI complaints persist, discontinue the use of this product. Long-term use can result in metabolic alkalosis. Renal insufficiency and certain potassium-sparing drugs will increase the risk for elevated blood potassium, which can be dangerous. Patients should not use potassium-rich salt substitutes without the advice of their healthcare professional while taking this or any high-potency potassium product.
