It is a mineral that is found in many foods and is needed for several functions of our body Leveraging our rich industry experience, we are engaged in offering Potassium Citrate. This medication is used to make the urine less acidic. This effect helps the kidneys get rid of uric acid, thereby helping to prevent gout and kidney stones. It can also prevent and treat certain metabolic problems (acidosis) caused by kidney disease. Potassium Citrate belong to a class of drugs known as urinary alkalinizers. It is indicated also for the management of Hypocitraturic calcium oxalate nephrolithiasis.
