Dr. Hans Nieper, a german physician and innovator of "Active Mineral Transport," combined potassium and magnesium orotates to treat cardiovascular diseases. Other applications include wound healing, immune enhancement, depression and anxiety. Dr. Nieper also used potassium orotates for a variety of health conditions, including symptoms of magnesium deficieny, high blood pressure, rheumatoid arthritis and heart disease.
Each molecule of potassium orotate consists of a molecule of orotic acid in which one of the hydrogen atoms is replaced by a potassium atom. Orotate (orotic acid) is a biochemical substance made by all living cells. It is a necessary raw material for making the genetic material: RNA and DNA. Potassium is an essential mineral throughout the biological world, and is the most prevalent positive-charged ion in animal cells. This element helps to regulate the amounts of water and electrolytes in cells and plays an important role in nerve conduction and muscle contraction.
Orotates are the mineral salts of orotic acid, a natural substance found in our bodies and also in various foods including dairy products. As theorized many years ago by Dr. Nieper, orotates are a component of a natural system of electrolyte carriers for distributing minerals throughout the body. A different compartment of this same system uses amino acid complexes such as aspartates and arginates to deliver minerals.) Based on his observations of cells in culture, Nieper concluded that molecules of calcium orotate and magnesium orotate can pass through cell membranes intact without “dissociating” or breaking apart into their component ions, and thereafter release their respective ions only at specific membrane sites within the cell. Subsequently he extended this principle to include other orotates such as lithium and zinc. Although not an antioxidant itself, potassium orotate facilitates the tissue uptake of vitamin C from serum and increases blood levels of reduced glutathione.

*Dr. Hans Nieper was very particular when ti came to selecting ingredients and insisted we use his complex and multi-step manufacturing processes. He said no other company in the world would bother to go to the expense necessary to do it correctly. He was quite aware that several formulators and fillerswere using ingredients that he had mentioned in his lectures, but he never gave his formulas to any of these "get rich quick copy cats," as he called them.He knew they would take short cuts and not follow his specified formulations properly -- even if they were able to find out how. Only Dr. Nieper could guarantee results and he spent his whole life perfecting his formulation and products.
