Your body stores about 98% of its potassium stores in cells, where it transmits electricity to power your cells, organs and tissue.
And it is the ratio of intracellular-to-extracellular potassium that determines muscle cell excitability.
So, potassium plays a critical role in the functioning of not only skeletal muscle but also the heart muscle.
It is also necessary for nerve impulse transmission, muscle contractility, and maintaining already normal blood pressure, energy production, and nucleic acid synthesis.
You can experience a potassium deficiency when you lose large amounts of potassium via the digestive system or the urinary tract. For example, prolonged use of a non-potassium sparing diuretic can cause a loss of potassium via the urinary tract.
People with eating disorders also have a higher risk for being potassium-deficient.
A chronic potassium deficiency can affect your health, leading to feelings of weakness and fatigue, for example.
To use Potassium Citrate as a dietary supplement, you can take one capsule one to three times a day or as recommended by your healthcare practitioner.

Aspirin, laxatives, sodium bicarbonate, and several prescription medications – including trisalicylate (a pain medication), colchicine, corticosteroids, and non-potassium sparing diuretics (such as thiazide diuretics) – can induce potassium depletion.
ACE inhibitors (captopril, enalapril, ramipril, etc.) can produce potassium retention by inhibiting aldosterone in the adrenal glands. Potassium supplementation concurrently with ACE inhibitors and potassium-sparing diuretics (spironolactone, amiloride, triamterene, etc.) should be undertaken with caution to avoid excessive potassium levels in the body.
