Potassium is an essential mineral that is widely distributed among food sources, with especially high levels present in fruits and vegetables. Potassium is critical for the maintenance of normal whole-body and cellular fluid levels, as well as for the maintenance of acid-base balance. It is also necessary for proper muscle contraction, the maintenance of healthy heart function, and for the transmission of nerve impulses. Because food processing reduces the levels of naturally occurring nutrients in foods, supplementation may be necessary to ensure adequate intake.
As a dietary supplement, take ½ teaspoon 1 to 4 times daily in separate servings. Take with food and at least 8 oz of water or other beverage. Do not exceed 4 servings per day.
Not manufactured with wheat, gluten, soy, milk, egg, fish, shellfish or tree nut ingredients. Produced in a GMP facility that processes other ingredients containing these allergens.
This product is sold by weight not volume.
Store in a cool, dry place after opening.
Caution: For adults only. Consult physician if pregnant/nursing, taking any medications (especially those that may affect kidney function or blood potassium levels), or have a medical condition (especially heart/kidney condition or diabetes). Keep out of reach of children.

Recently, I was under a great deal of stress and was having constant pain in my upper abdomen. The pain started a few months after I began taking Potassium Gluconate, which I later learned can cause gastritis. I am not sure if it was the Potassium Gluconate, stress, something else, or a combination of things that caused my pain, but I recommend using caution before taking this product. For anyone who might be suffering from gastritis or stomach pain, I stopped taking the Potassium Gluconate and started taking licorice (DGL), Doctor's Best PepZinGI, mastic gum, slippery elm, and acidophilus. This combination significantly soothed the pain I was having. I am no longer having those pains, so whatever it was must have healed. I bought the Potassium Gluconate because I get dehydrated easily from frequent urination. Instead, I recommend drinking coconut water for dehydration and for the replenishment of electrolytes.
Potassium never gets the hype that other minerals tend to get but I feel most people do not get an adequate intake. I eat a fairly high protein diet too and potassium helps offset the acidity associated with this.

It gives my soft stomach. Take it easy with this. Try chloride instead, because it doesn't give discomfort as this.
Cramps are gone.

Even with 1/2 a banana in my smoothie, I had leg cramps until I added this powder. Cramps have been gone for a year now. Love a good nights sleep.
