The result is a more rapid diffusion of the drug to the absorption sites. Potassium salts are generally as soluble as sodium salts, and sodium is probably used instead of potassium because it is cheaper.

And that's where the confusion often arises. To continue reading this article, you must. Electrolytes are essential for basic life functioning such as maintaining electrical neutrality in the cells, generation, and conduction of action potentials in the nerves and muscles. Sodium, potassium, and chloride are the significant electrolytes along with magnesium, calcium, phosphate, and bicarbonates.

Electrolytes come from our food and fluids. Food-drug interactions is a broader term that describes the effects of a drug on nutritional vascular sodium, and chloride from since food reduces drug availability.

They also have more potassium to sodium (or a higher K-to-Na ratio).Author: Melissa Diane Smith. Most humans in “Westernized” countries also consume excess salt. In studies using mice, we found that a high-salt, low-potassium diet activates the thiazide-sensitive Na-Cl cotransporter in the kidney.

This effect led to sodium retention and increased blood pressure, and was dependent on plasma by: • Eat a plant-based diet, and be sure to include potassium-rich foods. Eat a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds high in fiber, healthy fats, and nutrients such as calcium, magnesium, and the all-important potassium.

Potassium helps our bodies eliminate excess sodium and relax blood vessel walls, both of which help lower blood. For example, one cup of low-fat milk contains milligrams of sodium. Naturally-occurring sodium accounts for less than 12 percent of dietary intake in a typical diet.
