Potassium is critically needed for maintaining water relations of plant, activating enzymes
, supporting photosynthetic systems, translocating sugars and starch out of the leaves.
Best known as a powerful antioxidant, the vitamin was recently discovered to assist in iPSC induction by activating enzymes
that remodel chromatin --the spiral scaffold for DNA--to regulate gene expression.
The mineral plays a key role in various brain processes, such as building the fatty coating that insulates brain-cell connections, activating enzymes
necessary for producing energy from glucose, maintaining a proper balance of chemicals in the cell, and converting fatty acids consumed in the diet to a form of fat used in brain cell membranes.
