Magnesium/Potassium Complex Capsules, as provided by Douglas Laboratories®, delivers 90 mg of elemental magnesium and 90 mg of elemental potassium in their bioavailable aspartate forms.
Magnesium and potassium are two minerals with fundamentally important physiological functions in the body. However, typical diets in the U.S. and other industrialized countries often provide less than adequate amounts of magnesium and potassium. Supplementation with bioavailable aspartate salts of these two minerals can help bridge the gap between dietary intake and optimal requirement.
Magnesium plays an essential role in a wide range of fundamental cellular reactions. Magnesium is involved in maintaining already normal heart function and blood pressure.The aspartate salt used in Magnesium/Potassium Aspartate is highly absorbed and well tolerated
Potassium is of great physiological importance, contributing to the transmission of nerve impulses, the control of skeletal muscle contractility, and to the maintenance of already normal blood pressure. Potassium is generally well absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract, and the kidneys regulate total body potassium by controlling urinary potassium excretion.
