Thorne Research, Potassium Citrate, 90 Veggie Caps10 Reviews
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

Potassium is a vitally important mineral in the cell. Approximately 98 percent of the body's stores of potassium are within the cell. It is the ratio of intracellular-to-extracellular potassium that determines muscle cell excitability. Thus, potassium plays an essential role in the functioning of not only skeletal muscle, but also the heart muscle. Potassium is essential for nerve impulse transmission, muscle contractility, and maintaining already normal blood pressure, energy production, and nucleic acid synthesis. Epidemiological evidence suggests that diets high in potassium provide numerous benefits to cardiovascular health.
A potassium deficiency can occur when large amounts of potassium are lost via the digestive system or the urinary tract; for example, prolonged use of a non-potassium sparing diuretic can cause a loss of potassium via the urinary tract. Individuals with eating disorders are also at risk for being potassium-deficient. A chronic potassium deficiency can result in several adverse health conditions; at a minimum, a low potassium level can result in a prolonged feeling of weakness and fatigue.
Potassium citrate helps prevent precipitates in the urine. In addition, potassium citrate is effective for alkalinizing the urine. Herbs such as goldenseal and uva ursi that support a healthy urinary tract – and are ingredients in Thorne's Uristatin – contain natural constituents that work most effectively in an alkaline urine.

I am presently taking 25mg a day of Prednisone. Prednisone depleats potassium so I take this supplement. This has helped with muscle and joint pain.
I learned taking potassium citrate(at least 10mg) before bed is an effective way to prevent forming kinney stone in our body
