What is Potassium Citrate Powder?
Potassium is an essential mineral and electrolyte that the body needs for everyday functioning like keeping your heart beating properly, ensuring proper nerve function and muscle contraction, and transporting nutrients into cells. It’s actually the third most important mineral in the body and when levels dip too low, can become dangerous, leading to a condition known as hypokalemia.
Potassium citrate is an alkaline potassium salt of citric acid that can help alkalize the urine pH to make the body less acidic.
You can find potassium naturally in foods such as cooked spinach and Swiss chard, avocados, lima beans, sweet potatoes, wild caught salmon, bananas, and even coconut water.

What is Potassium Citrate Used For?
- Supports normal healthy kidney function.
Studies show that having unusually high calcium levels in the urine, a condition known as hypercalciuria, increases your risk of developing kidney stones. This is because the calcium is circulating freely in the body and is unable to be absorbed into the bones, where we want our calcium to be stored for proper bone health. Calcium is buffered, or balanced, by potassium intake. This is why consuming potassium-rich foods and supplementing with potassium citrate can help reduce the risk of kidney stones. Potassium citrate makes the urine less acidic, which helps the kidneys excrete uric acid to avoid kidney stone formation, the development of gout and metabolic issues caused by kidney disease.
One study found that potassium citrate supplementation in those with kidney stone formation resulted in a beneficial change of the urinary risk profile by increasing factors that stop stone formation without negatively impacting metabolic function.
- Increases bone mineral density.
The standard American diet is highly acidic. This is the result of an abundance of acidic processed, fried and fast foods in relation to alkaline whole, nutrient dense fruits and veggies. This acidity in the body increases our risk of developing weak and brittle bones, a disease known as osteoporosis.One study showed that over 24 months, potassium citrate consumption alongside vitamin D supplementation resulted in a significant increase in bone mineral density and reduced the risk of fractures.
- Promotes improved cardiovascular health.
We all want a healthy heart. Unfortunately when you struggle with high blood pressure, your heart is working in overdrive, which increases the risk of certain serious conditions like a stroke and congestive heart failure. Diet and lifestyle factors are crucial for healthy heart function, but sometimes we need extra supplementation to help bring the body back into balance.Potassium has been shown to support normal blood pressure levels thereby reducing the risk of a stroke. In fact, one study directly showed thattaking 120 mmol of potassium citrate daily for 8 weeks significantly reduced systolic and diastolic pressures by a mean of 6.2/3.8 mm Hg.
