Deficiency in potassium can lead to decreased tolerance to glucose along with weakened insulin secretion, urinary ammonium wasting and weakness in the respiratory system.(2)
Potassium along with sodium work together to sustain the balance of water in the body and this may provide an explanation for the ability of potassium to guard against high blood pressure.(3) Potassium can expel sodium from the body(4) which can lower blood pressure. Following this logic, if your body has a lot of sodium and less potassium high blood pressure may result.
Prolonged strenuous exercise can result in potassium depletion and this can lead to cardiovascular irregularities as well as muscle cramping.(5) However, there would have to be severe depletion for cardiovascular issues to arise. Muscle cramping, on the other hand, can happen when there is relativity higher amounts of the potassium still available for use. It is for this reason that those who engage in prolonged and strenuous exercise and who experience muscle cramps should consider supplementation with potassium.(6), (7), (8)
