So, what is citrato de potássio?

Citrato de potássio, also known as potassium citrate, is a white crystalline powder that's commonly used as a food additive and supplement. It's a source of potassium, a mineral important for regulating blood pressure, nerve function, and muscle contractions. Potassium citrate is often added to sports drinks and other beverages to help replenish electrolytes lost during exercise or sweating. It's also used as a buffering agent in processed foods like jams and jellies. In medicine, it's prescribed to treat kidney stones and gout by reducing acidity in the urine.
