Potassium for athletes
Olimp Potassium is a nutritional supplement containing potassium. Although all minerals are important for maintaining health, potassium has special significance for athletes. Together with sodium, it works in sodium / potassium pump, which, in addition to other things, regulates the flow of water into and from cells. The sodium / potassium pump allows the passage of sodium from the cells and potassium into cells, thereby maintaining the electrolyte balance in cells and blood.
Potassium is the main cation in the intracellular fluid, while sodium is the main anion in the extracellular fluid. The difference in their concentration makes it possible to establish an electrochemical gradient on the cell membrane, called the membrane potential. This potential allows the action potential to be triggered and thereby the electric impulse.
Potassium is also important because it acts as a cofactor in enzymes. Thus, the presence of potassium is indispensable for the action of pyruvate kinase involved in the carbohydrate metabolism.
Potassium deficiency is indicated by various symptoms such as fatigue, muscle weakness, cramps and bowel paralysis leading to bloating, constipation, and abdominal pain. Severe hypokalaemia can lead to muscle paralysis and heartbeat disorders, which can be life-threatening.
