Potassium is a very important mineral for the proper function of all cells, tissues, and organs in the human body. It is also an electrolyte, a substance that conducts electricity in the body, along with sodium, chloride, calcium, and magnesium. Potassium is also crucial for proper heart function.
People with IBD (ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease) often have trouble absorbing nutrients from their intestine, and may have low levels of potassium and other important nutrients. This is important because potassium (along with magnesium) plays a key role in skeletal and smooth muscle contraction, making it important for normal digestive and muscular function.
So if your intestine is spasming or cramping, you may need magnesium, or you may need potassium, or both! Likewise, if you cannot relax your rectum, or your peristalsis is malfunctioning, then you likely need one or both of these minerals.
