Product Description

Size: 1 Kilogram

Potassium citrate is a compound made up of a combination of citric acid and potassium. It has a higher rate of absorption than most potassium supplements and is often the favored source of potassium by people that generally have problems absorbing it. Potassium is an essential mineral. It is important for the body to be supplied with constantly high levels of potassium in order to help deal with the balance of water, the acidity levels of the body, the blood pressure, and the way the muscles respond to commands from the brain. It is also able to carry on impulses throughout the heart. In order for protein and carbohydrates to be properly metabolized, potassium is necessary. When potassium citrate is excreted it comes out in the form of a carbonate. It is often used as a diuretic because it is non-irritating and relatively inoffensive. It is sometimes used as a buffering agent in sodas and other carbonated beverages.

The CDC states that our daily minimum intake of potassium is 4700mg. That translates into 4-5 pound of raw vegetable @ day, or 10 bananas, or 5 avocados, or 5 pounds of zucchini. Something that I simply could not ingest on a regular basis, and was therefore deficient in potassium. Supplements in pill form only provide 3% which is a joke. This deficiency was affecting my health in many ways. Now I take the equivalent of 40% of the potassium citrate which I bought from BulkSuplements. I mix it in a liter of water with the juice of a lemon, add a few drops of stevia, and I drink it with meals. The beneficial effects are immediate! It has lowered my blood pressure. I sleep 8 hours uninterrupted, something I could not do in years!! I breathe deeply. My muscles no longer ache, and I have more energy! I love this product and highly recommend it.
Please measure carefully and follow the BulkSupplements guidelines regarding safe intakes.

The label on the package is missing the milligram to teaspoon conversion. I went to the BulkSupplements website, looked up Potassium Citrate and got this conversion:

0ne-sixteenth teaspoon contains 357 milligrams of potassium citrate.

It might seem that the 275 mg serving size providing only 3% of the FDA-approved Daily Value is awfully small. The BulkSupplements website had all sorts of warnings against even thinking of taking any more than a single serving per day. Some of the other reviewers are making up batches of the Hackerschool's DIY Soylent which calls for ten grams per day of potassium citrate. I myself am taking six grams per day of potassium citrate. (Update July/5/2014: 7.22 grams.)

The truth is potassium pills, especially potassium chloride pills, can be very dangerous so FDA regulations have been created prohibiting sellers from offering any more than 100 mg of elemental potassium per serving. If someone tries to swallow a handful of pills (or even one pill without water), the pills can get stuck in the esophagus or in the intestines and because potassium chloride is a salt, can cause blistering and conceivably potassium chloride could enter the bloodstream.

The mystery writer's favorite murder method is to throw a cat at the victim and in one of the cat scratches inject potassium chloride. All the smooth muscles including the heart will be completely paralyzed, but in a few minutes all traces of the potassium chloride will vanish. (The potassium and sodium ions will have reestablished their proper places.) No one can find the injection mark because it is hidden in a cat scratch.

The California death penalty is executed with three injections:
1. An anesthetic
2. A paralytic
3.

Good packaging and it works. I was having a bit of arrhythmia, and after extensive research, I concluded that it was due to low potassium. So I figured that I would try this before a doctor had a chance to put me on unnecessary meds, and this is the best way to get more than the standard 99mg that's available elsewhere. I received this product in two or three days and after using it for one day my symptoms were gone, and they've been gone ever since.

This product has an alkalizing effect. First of all, I measured a cup (237 ML) of plain filtered water which had a reading of about 6.25 and then added 275 mg of this product and watched the PH level rise to about 8.2.

Secondly, it seems to be helping with my overall blood pressure levels and am encouraged by it, although it may be gradual. I will try to update this review after some more time has passed. The only thing that could make this product easier to use would be by including a small spoon with a 275 mg level indicator.

I recently received this as part of an agreement to provide an honest review on this product. Firstly, let me state I am not a lab and have no way to independently verify the purity and concentration of this product, but have no reason to doubt it is as stated on the packaging. Also, this is my second product from BulkSupplements and can testify to their rapid shipping speed, packaging quality and outstanding customer support! These folks are highly recommended!

Now on to the product. My neurologist advised me to keep my potassium levels high due to the diminishing effect some diuretic and blood pressure control meds might have on me. Of course, one could take mega doses of "daily multi vitamins" or pig out on potatoes (which I love but prob put me in this situation! lol) He also suggested the drug Metformin could keep me from Type II diabetes and I might also be a candidate for late adult early onset dementia! Much of this indicated by a high spike A1C reading recently. Peculiar, because multi daily A1C, cholesterol, blood pressure etc readings done while in hospital all indicated I had very low readings of all these tests over a 4 day period and my own tests over the past 25 years! The nurses even commented my readings were more like a 20 yr olds and quite fine since I was 64 at the time! Maybe the neurologist was looking at someone else's tests as he was poring over my brain MRI? Dunno. But subsequent blood sugar, A1C cholesterol, and daily BP tests indicated I was still better than fine and a recent weight problem was also resolved by a smarter diet.

Anyway, reductions in fats, salt intake and healthier overall diet are always a smart thing and I continue this regimen.
