Potassium bicarbonate is an alkaline mineral found in nutritional supplements. This alkaline mineral can assist a diet that is too acidic. An imbalance in electrolytes such as potassium can stress several processes including muscle function and nerve conduction. A lack of this important electrolyte can inhibit intestinal motility and lead to constipation. Potassium is found in many foods and is an important nutrient for cardiovascular health. It also supports bone health, the digestive process and muscle function, especially muscular contractions. Because of this, it is essential for a strong, regular heartbeat.
