Default Potassium supplement choices...

Quick question...

I need (a lot) more potassium in my diet...I am not even close to hitting my numbers.

I can't find Lite Salt or Nu Salt where I am from. I went looking and I found both Potassium Chloride Powder and Potassium Citrate Powder. I figured I will mix it with some Crystal Lite and be good to go...

Similar prices, similar "stats", but what is the difference between Chloride and Citrate? Will it make any difference?

Thanks in advance...

the taste is different.

will that matter to you? only you can define the answer for that.

as for potassium sources - check your veggie intake - some are higher in it than others.

Don't mean to hijack, but is it okay to supplement with Klor-Con 10 mEq tablets that is by prescription? It's about 750 mg potassium, and Lyle says to supplement up to 1000 mg of Potassium on the PSMF.

Thanks I was wondering the same.

So besides taste any other medical differences? Some sites like this say "Potassium chloride and potassium citrate—they’re both potassium so they should be the same, right? The names of these medications look nearly identical and can be extremely confusing, but you should know that these different forms of potassium treat different conditions and can’t be substituted for each other."

I'm no expert so in your opinion, ok to take either?

Potasium is potassium, it's just what it's bonded to. Which mostly doesn't matter.

What about adding Cream of Tartar to your water, etc? It is potassium bitartrate.

Thoughts?

Old thread obviously, but here's what I do personally:

Bulk Supplements Potassium Citrate Powder
I mix 1 (one) TEAspoon with about 8 ounces of water and a splash of mio. A slight buzzed feeling an hour or so after is normal. It tastes terrible.

I'd never take more than a teaspoon in a day, even if I thought I could benefit from it. Depending on your diet, you may need less. Potassium can be dangerous I need to read the rules post.I need to read the rules post.I need to read the rules post.I need to read the rules post.. It's not like the other supplements you take; it can kill you if you take too much. Look at how much you're already getting in your diet first.
