Potassium is an essential mineral needed by the body. It is vital for muscle activity. As an important electrolyte, it regulates nerve signals from the brain and spinal column to muscles and also promotes proper fluid balance in the body. Potassium also helps to attract nutrients into cells. This formulation provides potassium complexed with the amino acid glycine.

iHerb Customer Reviews
Potassium supplementation can be tricky because typical potassium salts (which THESE Albion-based tablets are NOT) can be caustic to stomach and intestinal linings as they dissolve. This is the reason why the government sets a 99mg limit on the amount of potassium a tablet may contain. You must also be sure that your kidneys are functioning normally and are able to regulate your blood's potassium level since excessive serum potassium (hyperkalemia) is not something you want to induce. This Albion Potassium Glycinate complex (which is not a full chelate, since Potassium cannot be fully chelated) offers the safest and most absorbable solution for supplementing a diet's existing Potassium. Eating Potassium-rich food (and avoiding Sodium) is the best solution, but if additional Potassium is required, this is the best solution.
I need a potassium supplement and this is a good one. I actually chew it because it tastes good to me and it's one less pill I have to swallow.
