Potassium Citrate is a well-absorbed form of potassium. In addition to its role in heart and skeletal muscle function, it also alkalinizes urine to support kidney and lower urinary tract health.
- Mineral supplement
- Essential for skeletal muscle function
- Alkalinizes the urine to promote good kidney & urinary tract health
- Supports cardiovascular health

Individuals at high risk for mineral deficiencies include the elderly because of deteriorating digestion, children and teenagers because of poor diet, individuals who have an eating disorder, and anyone suffering from a chronic disease. Taking certain prescription medications can also result in mineral deficiencies. Because the mineral content of fruits and vegetables depends on the soil health of the crop it is grown in, even a healthy individual who maintains a good diet can be at risk for a mineral deficiency because of mineral-depleted soil.
By their very nature, minerals are not particularly well absorbed by the human body. In addition, various dietary, lifestyle, and health factors can have a negative impact on mineral absorption. One of the barriers to mineral absorption is overcoming the natural form the mineral comes in. Thorne’s mineral ingredients are primarily in their chelated form – the mineral is linked to an amino acid or an organic acid via a molecular reaction that provides a predictable, high quality, and hypoallergenic chelate. Thorne’s mineral supplements are designed for optimal absorption.

If pregnant, consult your health-care practitioner before using this product. ACE inhibitors (captopril, enalapril, ramipril, etc.) can produce potassium retention by inhibiting aldosterone in the adrenal glands. Potassium supplementation concurrently with ACE inhibitors and potassium-sparing diuretics (spironolactone, amiloride, triamterene, etc.) should be undertaken with caution to prevent excessive potassium levels in the body.
