Electrolyte balance can be an important issue in a number of situations, as well as in the elderly. Particular attention needs to be paid to calcium and magnesium levels. Calcium and magnesium play important roles in maintaining normal bone metabolism in the aging population, and both have links to electrolyte balance. Maintaining a proper balance of potassium and magnesium is especially important in these circumstances.
Both potassium and magnesium are essential for maintaining normal muscle contractility, already normal blood pressure, and proper nerve conduction. Potassium-Magnesium Citrate offers these two important intracellular cations in one capsule. In addition, citrate chelates can benefit individuals with a propensity for precipitates in the kidney.
