Potassium, Sodium, and Chloride

Potassium, Sodium, and Chloride help to regulate the nervous system and heart rhythm.  They are all closely related to one another.

These three minerals are known as electrolytes due to their electrical charge. They are responsible for maintaining a proper pH (along with calcium and magnesium).

Excess sodium can cause an elevation in blood pressure.  Potassium helps lower blood pressure and can reduce the risk of stroke

Chloride helps make up the digestive enzyme hydrochloric acid. Hydrochloric acid helps digest food, destroys harmful intestinal “bugs”, and synthesizes Vitamin B-12.

Potassium is essential for the body’s growth and maintenance. It is necessary to keep a normal water balance between the cells and body fluids.
