Liquid Potassium

 

T. J. Clark Liquid Potassium: 

Potassium (K) in the form of K+ is the most essential cation (a
positively charged ion) of the cells. Its high intracellular concentration is
regulated by the cell membrane through the sodium-potassium pump.
Most of the total body potassium is found in muscle tissue. Total body
potassium has been used as a measure of lean body mass, of muscle
mass, or (more accurately) of cell mass. Because of its association with
the metabolizing, oxygen-consuming portion of the body, a decline in
total body potassium is usually interpreted as a loss of muscle mass due
to a catabolic condition. Potassium exists in nature in three isotopes: 39K
(93.26%), 40K (0.0117%) and 41K (6.73%). 40K is radioactive and
responsible for most of the naturally occurring internal radioactivity in the
body. This property enables investigators to monitor total body
potassium values as a function of age and disease. 

IMPORTANCE: Works with sodium to regulate the body's waste
balance and normalize heart rhythms; aids in clear thinking by sending
oxygen to the brain; preserves proper alkalinity of body fluids; stimulates
the kidneys to eliminate poisonous body wastes; assists in reducing high
blood pressure; promotes healthy skin. 

Deficiencies: With the exception of starvation, low or declining total
body potassium is not a result of insufficient dietary intake but the
outcome of a catabolic, protein wasting condition which reduces the
total cell mass of the body. Hypokalemia (low serum K) is the result of
excessive loss of K in the urine, usually as a result of use of diuretic
agents to treat hypertension. Hypokalemia may result in cardiac failure.
May result in poor reflexes, nervous disorders, respiratory failure,
cardiac arrest, muscle damage. 

Dietary recommendations: The Estimated Minimum Requirement for
potassium for adolescents and adults is 2000 mg or 50 mEq/day. The
usual dietary intake for adults is about 100 mEq/day. For hypertension
patients using diuretic medications, it is recommended often to
supplement their diet with orange juice, bananas and vegetables which
contain high amounts of potassium. Increased potassium intake helps
maintain normal plasma levels. However, the blood level of potassium
(which is sensitive to diet) is not indicative of total body potassium which
is an index of cell mass and muscle. 

Food sources: Most foods contain potassium. The best food sources
are fruits, vegetables and juices; potassium also is present in meats and
cereals. 

Toxicity: The fraction of potassium which is present outside the cells
plays an active role in the propagation of electrical signals between
neurons, skeletal muscle function and regulation of blood pressure.
Urinary excretion protects against the accumulation of high levels of
potassium. However, acute hyperkalemia can be lethal by causing
cardiac arrest. 

Recent research: Most of the recent research is related to the
importance of total body potassium as an index of cell mass. The
accelerated loss of total body potassium compared to protein loss in
AIDS patients can be used to predict the time of death of the patient.
Total body potassium is depleted with age, a phenomenon associated
with sarcopenia (loss of skeletal muscle mass and function with age).
