Thanks to contact with Healthcare magic.

Potassium is required by our body for smooth muscular and cellular functioning, cardiovascular functioning, muscle contraction, nerve transmission, for conversation of glucose into glycogen and muscle building etc. It is a natural diuretic as it helps in exerting excess Sodium from the body through urine. Potassium plays an important role for maintaining fluid level, pH level and electrolyte balance.

The human body has to maintain potassium level for day to day functioning is 3.6 to 5.2 millimoles / liter.

In maintaining of potassium level the body will recover again. Please consult with your house Physician

Take care
God bless you
