What Is It?
Potassium and magnesium provide wide range support for numerous physiological functions, including nerve function, nutrient metabolism, bone health, muscle function and cardiovascular health. Magnesium also plays an important role in facilitating potassium utilization, helping to provide optimal support from this important combination.
Uses For Potassium Magnesium
Cardiovascular Support: Potassium plays a critical role in the transmission of electrical impulses in the heart and supports healthy blood flow. Magnesium provides broad-spectrum cardiovascular support, including arterial function, endothelial function, c-reactive protein metabolism and lipid metabolism. A meta-analysis of 20 randomized trials suggests that it also promotes healthy systolic and diastolic function. In one 15-year study involving 4,637 young adults, higher intakes of magnesium were associated with healthy cardiovascular function and glucose utilization. Magnesium and potassium also play important roles in muscle function, mood and cranial vessel comfort.
Bone Health: Magnesium is essential bone matrix mineral that promotes healthy bone metabolism. A trial involving 2,038 older individuals indicated that higher intakes of magnesium were positively associated with bone mineralization for certain individuals. Potassium supports alkaline balance, bone cell function and bone mineralization in part by enhancing calcium absorption and supporting healthy bone resorption. In one randomized, double blind trial involving postmenopausal women, potassium citrate supported healthy bone composition of the neck, vertebrae and hip.
Nutrient Metabolism: Magnesium activates the enzymes necessary for a number of physiological functions, including the metabolism of macronutrients, energy production and the utilization of calcium, phosphorus,
sodium, and potassium. Potassium is also important in maintaining acid/alkaline balance.
What Is The Source?
Magnesium and potassium are from the lime of rock. Aspartate is synthetic. Citrate is derived from corn dextrose fermentation. Ascorbyl palmitate is derived from corn dextrose fermentation and palm oil.

No kidney stones recurrence as long as I take Potassium Magnesium (citrate)
By Bob from Fort Lauderdale, FL on October 20, 2011
For years I suffered recurrent kidney stones before I happened on an article about the US army supplying Potassium Magnesium (citrate) to the Desert Storm troops. I began to take two a day at that point and have not had a recurrence yet!
I would recommend this item to a friend.
Natural Way to fight uric acid kidney stones
By Roxanne from Tennessee on February 16, 2011
I have had problems with kidney stones for almost 30 years. A few years ago they changed from calcium oxalate to uric acid. I do not tolerate medications at all and wanted a natural way to try to prevent or lessen the occurrence of these stones. The last ones I had were in 2006. I take one capsule each day and have done this for 3 years. So far, so good. Hopefully I will never have to experience the agony again, and will have achieved this by doing it safely and with no side affects. As far as I know, this is the only place to find this product combination.
Pros:Easy to take capsules and only once a day.
I would recommend this item to a friend.
