iHerb Customer Reviews
I consider this potassium a must have. I can really feel the benefits of this product helping to balance electrolytes, more so than potassium gluconate or potassium chloride, neither of which were as beneficial (for me). Definitely best to take with meals as per label, as any form of supplemental potassium can upset the stomach. Minimal fillers.
Bicarbonates have a role for those who want to reduce the acidity in the body, and some people have used sodium bicarbonate for exactly that purpose including myself. However most people already have a high sodium intake and a low potassium intake. Therefore this product is a much better option for the majority of people as its increases our potassium intake which is great. I do find this supplement gives me a slight belly ache if I take the recommended 2 capsules with a glass of water. However, if I stir the contents of the 2 capsules into a glass of water first to dissolve it, I do not get a belly ache, so I would recommend that approach. I am delighted that iHerb carries this supplement because it provides the benefits of two important supplements which are bicarbonate and potassium.
