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

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...

Easy to swallow, good amount of capsules. I think they capsules should be a bit bigger, for instance 500 mg/cap

Works well with Magnesium Citrate, and should be taken in combination with it. I'm taking 3-4 caps each time.
CAREFUL! Gave me diabetes symptoms!

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!
