What is PentoKan?
PentoKan has been specially developed for the treatment of potassium deficiency. The active ingredients of PentoKan are potassium, vitamin C and ribose. PentoKan is a rich source of potassium. Thanks to effervescent tablets, dissolved potassium can be absorbed up to 97.5% of the body.
Ribose is an important component in PentoKan. Ribose is a monosaccharide from the group of pentoses (natural carbohydrate). Additional intake of ribose increases the production of ATP by 300-400%. The reproductive capacity of the cells increases by 700%.
ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is available as an energy source for numerous metabolic processes. About one-third of total energy expenditure is needed to maintain the ATP-powered sodium-potassium pump.
Vitamin C is an important means of transport in the cells in the PentoKan combination.
1 minute and PentoKan is ready to drink
Dissolve one tablet in approx. 60ml of water or frut juice. You can drink 1 to 2 tablets daily before or during meals.

Pentokan helps against stress
Stress is an integral part of life in our society. At work, driving a car, shopping, with the children. Often it is also emotional stress that we experience.
Researchers even describe happiness as stress, as well as releasing hormones that pollute our cells. Further stress factors for our body is the consumption of alcohol, nicotine. Eating fast food, too long sunbathing, air pollution by cars and industry. Too much sport or too long TV look are stress for the body.
Stress triggers can not be just emotional. These include:
- Unfavorable environmental conditions
- Bacterial and viral infections
- Natural aging of the body
- Psycho-emotional stress, nervous tension
- Excessive UV radiation, including sunshine or sunbed
- Toxic ingredients in cosmetics and household items
- Overeating, excessive consumption of fast food, canned and fried foods
- Bad habits: smoking, alcohol
- Taking certain medications
- Increased physical stress or, on the contrary, lack of physical activity
- lack of oxygen
- Effects of radiation exposure, caused i.a. through computer and telephone
The body can adapt to stressors. As long as the body can handle that, we do not run the risk of getting sick. When the body’s defenses and protective forces are damaged, this can be the direct route to the disease.

Oxidative Stress – How Can PentoKan Help?
Our body is a union of trillions of cells. Every minute, millions of chemical reactions take place in our bodies to keep our body alive. These chemical reactions in the body are called metabolism. Through the metabolism, the body can fix its diseases and the cells grow “positively”.
In a healthy metabolism, the cells can neutralize the free radicals with the help of antioxidant systems. When the number of free radicals increases, the cell no longer manages to neutralize it, the cell membrane disintegrates and the cell dies. The dead cell lies between the healthy cells and can damage adjacent cells. The turn dying and so the process is set in motion.

What are free radicals and how can PantoKan help?
A free radical is an oxygen molecule, an unpaired electron. The free radical thus wants to subtract the missing electron from an adjacent molecule. It destroys the healthy cell of the body and triggers an adoring chain reaction. Oxidative stress is called this and leads to numerous diseases of the organism.
To understand the metabolism, one can imagine that every body cell needs an uninterrupted supply of nutrients. Furthermore, the resulting metabolic products must be transported away again.
Scientists have succeeded in discovering a “sodium-potassium-pump”. Sodium is continuously transported out of the cell. In return, potassium is transported to the cell. This exchange process between sodium and potassium is an important mechanism to transmit nerve impulses in the cells, it also ensures a healthy water and salt balance and the regulation of metabolism.

Main cause of potassium deficiency
Excessive consumption of sodium chloride (sodium chloride) is the main cause of potassium deficiency in the body
It was not that long ago in our evolution when salt was still considered rare. In the Middle Ages, salt was traded as gold today and was only accessible to the nobility. Today, however, the salt intake is excessively high.
Sodium is an important component in our body to control neuro-muscular functions. Without sodium, life would not be possible. This also applies to potassium. Unlike sodium, which is stored in the body, the organism can not store potassium.
The body is very sparing with Natirum, but wastes potassium, as it previously used to be abundant in food. Today, our food is enriched with plenty of salt, but less with potassium.
A lack of potassium is often expressed as fatigue, apathy, emotional burnout.
In addition to intense physical stress and excessive salt intake, a deficiency can be triggered by such factors:
- Regular stress
- Bad habits (alcohol, smoking)
- Bad environmental conditions
- Diuretic or laxative ingestion
- Dehydration due to persistent vomiting or diarrhea
- Excessive sweating
- Frequent consumption of chocolate and coffee
