Potassium is a key mineral and electrolyte. The body cannot produce potassium on it’s own, therefore consumption must come from food. However, unfortunately many people do not consume enough potassium in their diet alone. One study stated that less than 3% of people receive the Adequate Intake of 4,700mg of potassium from their diet. Many potassium supplements do not contain high doses of potassium, however MaxLiving Optimal K + 2 Potassium has been formulated to provide the body with a high-quality form of potassium with optimal bioavailability.
Potassium is essential to human function, and it is known to support healthy blood pressure, cardiovascular function, and build healthy muscles and bones. MaxLiving Optimal K+2 Potassium provides 300 mg of potassium per capsule, which is a higher dose of potassium than commercially available potassium supplements. Additionally, it is formulated with optimal potency, stability, and tolerability to provide a high-quality supplement to diet.†

The health benefits of potassium are very widespread. Potassium, a mineral and electrolyte, is necessary for human function. It plays a large role in cell function, and is the most abundant positively charged electrolyte in cells.
Potassium can be found in sources such as bananas, avocado, and tomatoes, however, the typical western diet contributes to most people not consuming the Adequate Intake of potassium daily. Consuming too little potassium can contribute to high blood pressure, calcium depletion, and other issues.
- Hypertension is the most common cause of cardiovascular disease. (Stone) Potassium is very important for regulating and improving blood pressure. One study on 22 randomized controlled trials and 11 cohort studies showed that systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure were both reduced following increased potassium intake.
- Potassium can protect against salt-induced cardiovascular damage through symoatikytic and insulin-sensitizing effects.
- One study stated that low potassium levels in the body contribute to weak muscles.
- Potassium has also been shown to positively affect bone mineral density, specifically in men over the age of 50.
- Optimal K + 2 Potassium is composed of potassium bicarbonate and potassium bound to the amino acid glycine. Minerals are commonly more bioavailable in this form.
