Potassium Citrate 200mg from HSNessentials is a vegetable capsule food supplement made from potassium salts of citric acid.
Potassium is the main intracellular cation and plays a significant role in several physiological processes. Potassium plays a crucial role in energy metabolism and its transport across the cell membrane. […] Small relative changes in extracellular potassium concentrations significantly affect the weight gradient across the cell membrane and thus the nerve transmission, muscle contraction and blood vessel tone (EFSA NDA, 2010).
HSN’s Potassium citrate capsules are completely free of ingredients from animal sources, meaning:
It is 100% suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Because potassium is an essential mineral.
And when there's a lack in sufficient quantities of the mineral, it can cause a deficiency state known as hypokalemia, which leads to changes in the polarisation of cell membranes including muscle weakness, arrhythmias, heart attacks, and intestinal illness. Symptoms of mental depression and confusion may also develop (SCF, 1992 citado en EFSA NDA, 2010).
The ionic flow through cell membranes allows electric signals to be sent, known as action potentials, which activate mechanisms that allow endocrine, paracrine and/or autocrine communication of the components of one or several systems; potassium is a determinant of this process.
Hypokalemia, as described above, alters the normal functioning of the neuromuscular system, meaning:
Potassium contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system and muscle function.
Potassium has a close relationship with blood pressure, as it contributes to the maintenance of blood pressure.
The American Heart Association recommends increasing dietary potassium intake to 4.7g/day as diet modification effectively lowers blood pressure (Appel et al., 2006; Lichtenstein et al., 2006; cited in EFSA NDA, 2010).

The effects of potassium on lowering blood pressure may be mediated by direct effects on vasodilation, by suppression of the sympathetic nervous system and the RAAS and/or by natriuretic effects (COMA, 1991; EFSA, 2005 cited in EFSA NDA, 2010).
Potassium citrate is a potassium salt authorised for use in food supplements because of its bioavailability to humans when taken orally.
Each capsule of our potassium citrate contains 200mg of the pure mineral element, responsible for the effects described above.
It's a product with a high quantity of potassium, which, through the consumption of the daily dose of 3 capsules, contributes 600mg of potassium to the diet, 30% of the recommended daily consumption of this mineral.
The product has been made 100% vegan.
The product formula does not contain ingredients of animal origin; and neither does its capsule, which is made from a polymer suitable for vegan diets and not from gelatines, as other products on the market are.
Take one vegetable capsule, three times a day, with meals.
Potassium citrate does not require any special conditions for absorption, so you can take it regardless of the composition of the food you eat.
It goes great with products such as:
- Magnesium Bisglycinate (175mg Magnesium).
- Electrolyte Powder.
- Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamin) 1000mcg.
- EFSA Panel on Dietetic Products, N. and A. (NDA). (2010).
