Potassium is known as a great alkalizer as it is a
primary electrolyte, important in pH balance and water balance.
Potassium constitutes 5% of the total mineral content of the body

is easily absorbed. But it is essential to point out that at least 90%
of it is excreted through the kidney, however, It is also found in fecal
matter. Potassium is vital to eliminate wastes in the body.
Potassium is a natural diuretic, helping your body excrete water
and sodium, and possibly lowering your blood pressure. There is evidence
