Potassium Ingredient Manufacturer

Potassium is one of, if not the most underrated nutrient. It is also an electrolyte because it produces positively charged ions when dissolved in water.

Although potassium is not a popular supplement ingredient, it still has a boatload of health benefits, including reducing blood pressure, water retention, and risk of strokes.

1. Helps Regulate Fluid Balance

As you may know, 60% of the human body is made up of water. 40% of this water is found inside cells in a substance called intracellular fluid (ICF).

The rest is present outside your cells in areas, such as between your cells, spinal fluid, and blood. This fluid is called extracellular fluid (IEF).

Interestingly, the amount of water in both ICF and IEF is directly affected by their concentration of electrolytes, including sodium and potassium.

The main electrolytes for ICF and IEF are potassium and sodium, respectively. 

Normally, there are an equal number of electrolytes inside and outside your cells. However, certain conditions can disturb this balance.

When that happens, water from the side with fewer electrolytes moves into the side with more electrolytes for equalizing electrolyte concentrations.

Since your cells shrink when the water moves out of them, or burst when water moves into them, this process can cause a lot of harm to your body. (1)

To prevent a disturbance in the balance of electrolytes present between inside and outside your cells, research suggests you should stay hydrated, along with consuming potassium and sodium. 

2. Essential for the Nervous System

As you may know, your nervous system transfers messages from your brain to your body and vice versa. This transfer takes place in the form of nerve impulses.

Nerve impulses are generated by potassium ions moving out of cells and sodium ions moving inside them. Without this movement of ions, a nerve impulse cannot work.

So when your body is running low on potassium, it cannot create nerve impulses properly. That is why you should always get enough potassium from your diet.

3. Helps Reduce Blood Pressure

High blood pressure is a global health problem. It is directly linked to heart disease — which is the leading cause of death worldwide.

Multiple studies conclude that potassium helps lower blood pressure because it supports your body in getting rid of excess sodium. 

An analysis of 33 studies found out that when high blood pressure patients increased their potassium intake, their diastolic blood pressure and systolic blood pressure decreased by 1.96 and 3.49 mmHg, respectively.

Furthermore, another study conducted with 1,285 participants concluded similar results: people with the highest intake of potassium significantly reduced their blood pressure, compared to those with the lowest intake.


Health Issues Associated With Potassium Deficiency

Potassium deficiency can lead to several health issues, including:

  • Muscle pain, weakness, and paralysis
  • Abnormal heart rhythm
  • Hypokalemia

So to stay clear of these health issues, you should meet the daily recommended intake of potassium.


Daily Recommended Intake

For adults, the daily recommended intake of potassium is between 3,500 to 4,700 milligrams. However, people with certain conditions can consume more than 4,700 milligrams per day.

We just completed a very large Homeopathic tablet order that required involvement from 4 different facilities. There was nobody else in the country that was willing to help us that we called until we found superior. First shipment came last week and we couldn’t be happier or more impressed with the team. Thank you Justine, Phil, Stephenie you are the best!

I was choosing between two companies to create a formulation, and it came down to their level of service, expertise and confidence in their ability to execute. After speaking to Phil, their lead guy who knows all things supplements and is very easy to communicate with, was enthusiastic and helped to create a strategy to see my vision through. The last thing you want is a transactional relationship in this industry, so whether you’re a first timer or a veteran, these guys know how to add value no matter what level you’re at. Highly recommend Superior and their team to get the job done.
When they say “Superior” they aren’t kidding. Of over 100 companies on our NSF list that we called, and over 20 that we talked to, Superior was the ONLY one that consistently answered their phones, worked incredibly diligently to problem solve and R&D an incredibly complex patented proprietary product, and consistently was two or three steps ahead of us, the landscape and their competitors. Looking forward to a long relationship Superior!
We’ve been using Superior for over 5 years. We came to them because our last manufacturer stopped making the capsule size I needed. I looked everywhere for a replacement. Luckily, I found Superior. They quoted me a fair price and sourced a hard to find ingredient quickly. In the 5 years we’ve had them make our product, which is a custom formulation, they have never delivered late once. Quality control is very high and I get constant updates from Phil our point person while it is being manufactured. I cannot recommend them enough.
Our previous manufacturer was 3 months late on a production and barely spoke with us. We have run many runs with Superior and as with all manufacturing, there was an order that was a little late because of poor crop growth. Not only did they warn us ahead of time they showed us the list of suppliers they were calling day and night to try to find replacement material. Best company ever!
Jake, Justine and Phil are just a few of the team members we have had the pleasure of working with at Superior. As a marketing agency working in the supplement industry, we work with many suppliers on behalf of our clients. I especially appreciate Superior Supplements Manufacturing because of their dedication to customer relationships. They go to extreme measures to ensure quality ingredients, fair pricing and great turn around times. The staff is also extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this team.
