Functions of Potassium
Potassium functions in the intracellular fluids the same as Na does in the extracellular fluids.
The major functions of K in the animal body are to:
- maintain water balance
- maintain osmotic pressure
- maintain acid-base balance
- activate enzymes
- help metabolize carbohydrates and proteins
- regulate neuromuscular activity (along with Ca)
