Product Overview

Description
  • Essential Mineral
  • Supports Electrolyte Mineral Balance
  • Supports Nervous System
  • GMP Quality Assured
  • A Dietary Supplement

Potassium is an important mineral used in various bodily functions. It is an important factor in the maintenance of the body's acid-base balance and nerve conduction, as well as the transfer of nutrients through cell membranes. Potassium is found in a number of foods, including dairy, fish, and other meats, fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Because food processing reduces the levels of naturally occurring nutrients in foods, supplementation may be necessary to insure adequate intake. Potassium Citrate is a well absorbed and highly bioavailable form of potassium.

Suggested Use

As a dietary supplement, take 1 capsule 1 to 5 times daily, preferably with food. Consider taking these other NOW products: Magnesium and Taurine.

Other Ingredients

Cellulose, gelatin (capsule), stearic acid (vegetable source) and silica.

Not manufactured with yeast, wheat, gluten, soy, milk, egg, fish, shellfish or tree nut ingredients. Produced in a GMP facility that processes other ingredients containing these allergens.

Warnings

Store in a cool, dry place after opening. Please recycle.

Caution: For adults only. Consult physician if pregnant/nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition. Do not consume potassium supplements if you have kidney disease or are using a potassium-sparing diuretic. Keep out of reach of children.

CAREFUL! Gave me diabetes symptoms!

Posted by PurplePegasus on Dec 09, 2013

I have been diagnosed with chronic very low potassium and life-threatening hypoglycemia. These pills sent me in diabetes for 2 wks straight, until I figured out what was going on. (I knew it was diabetes because I was diagnosed with steroid-induced diabetes several years ago when put on Cortef). The FDA is right, here, to make these supplements only 3% of the US RDA! This potassium is dangerous! I am giving it 2 stars because when I am severely exhausted it helps with the CFIDS symptoms and makes me stronger but if it's easy to get thrown out of balance with this. I can't even take 2 pills per day! Not sure what is going on. Considering I'm severely low in potassium, I can't imagine what kinds of persons can take this safely. It's a pity because it helps with the debilitating exhaustion but the side effects are way too severe for me. I'm glad I was able to figure out it was this pill causing it, as when I quit it, I went back to balance and thrown again with severe diabetic thirst and discomfort all day yesterday. No good!

Potassium Citrate

Posted by Reviewer2098155 on Jun 23, 2009

I've taken this for a couple of years now. I'm pleased at how it off sets water retention from sodium. I take 3 tabs/day which is about the equivalant of a banana...

uses hydrogenated oil as lubricant

Posted by Reviewer1861584 on Sep 03, 2009

This is a good source of potassium but I will not order it again because hydrogenated cottonseed or palm oil (AKA magnesium stearate) is used as a lubricant.

potassium

Posted by Reviewer1947628 on May 26, 2011

I try to make sure I don't run out of potassium, as I can count on severe muscle cramps at night in legs and feet if I don't get enough! My only complaint is that it doesn't come in larger capsules.
