What is Potassium Gluconate
Potassium gluconate is an organic potassium salt that is given as a dietary supplement. Available as both an over-the-counter and a prescription medication, potassium gluconate is prescribed for individuals who need to replenish their bodies' potassium supply due to depletion from illness or certain medications. Potassium gluconate comes in liquid and tablet forms. Potassium is one of the most frequently prescribed minerals in the United States.
How Potassium Gluconate Works
Potassium is one of the primary electrolytes in the human body, carrying tiny positive electrical charges through the blood and cells. Potassium plays an important part in maintaining blood pressure, regulating the body's pH, balancing water content, regulating the heart beat and aiding nerve cell impulses. Additionally potassium contributes to the conversion of food to energy and the growth of muscle cells.
Health Benefits of Potassium Gluconate
So far, very few scientific studies have tested the health effects of supplements containing Potassium Gluconate. But while clinical trials are currently lacking, some preliminary research suggests that Potassium Gluconate may offer certain health benefits. Here's look at several key findings from the available studies:
Heart Health
Consuming twice as much potassium as sodium in the diet reduces your risk of dying from heart disease, according to a study published by Paul Whelton in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Taking potassium supplements may cause a drop in blood pressure, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. However, the effect may only occur if you start out deficient in potassium. High blood pressure is a risk factor for heart disease.
Prevents Hypokalemia
Hypokalemia, or low potassium, can be caused by lack of potassium in the diet. It can also be caused by using a diuretic or having diarrhea or vomiting for long periods of time, according to the Merck Manual of Health and Aging. Hypokalemia can lead to low insulin, increasing blood sugar. If potassium stays very low, fatigue, confusion, muscle weakness and cramps can result. Very severe hypokalemia can cause paralysis and abnormal heart rhythms, or arrythmias. Potassium supplements can treat hypokalemia.
Bone Health
Diets high in potassium may have a beneficial effect on bone health. A diet high in bicarbonate, found in fruits and vegetables, and potassium, present in dairy products, significantly reduces bone turnover, or bone breakdown and reformation, according to a 2008 study published by Susan A. Lanham-New in the Journal of Nutrition. The effect could have also been due to other components in the potassium-rich foods.
Muscle Function
The ratio of sodium to potassium is is critical for muscle contraction, according to the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University. Low potassium can cause muscle cramping. Potassium is also necessary for the building of muscle.
Potassium Gluconate Side Effects
Although uncommon, serious side effects can result from taking potassium gluconate. These side effects: chest or throat pain, bloody or black stool and abdominal or stomach pain, require immediate medical attention. Symptoms such as nausea, diarrhea or tingling in the hands/feet are common and are not considered a medical emergency. There are many medications that should not be combined with potassium supplements. Consult your physician or pharmacist before starting any dietary supplement.
