I use this potassium supplement along with pink salt and/or sea salt to support my body with electrolyte minerals. It helps my symptoms of lethargy when my electrolytes are low and my blood pressure goes low. I've read where potassium gluconate is beneficial because it absorbs well in the body fast when mixed with water or liquid. The size of the bottle is good and it is ONLY one ingredient - potassium gluconate - going into my body, not other unnecessary fillers! I like NOW's quality products.
I have been buying this exact potassium for several years. For some reason I don't absorb potassium from food. The pills you can buy are way too low of a dosage to do me any good. I would have to take so many of them to get the amount I need. So instead I buy this powder and I add it to my water. It dissolves great, and doesn't add a taste. Perhaps a very slight saltiness is the best I can describe it, but honestly I prefer my water with this and won't drink water without it.
There are other brands of this kind of potassium powder, and I've tried just one other, but I find NOW brand to have the highest quality and so I've stuck with them.
Excellent product that has helped me detox my liver and overcome excess copper in my body. The powder is fine and doesn't have any clumping problems. The bottle is large, strong and secure. It is made up of pure Potassium gluconate without any fillers or other ingredients at all, which is I appreciate. It is quite a large bottle and its one pound of Potassium gluconate will last for some time. I've got a severe Potassium deficiency due to liver toxicity and copper overload, so this has helped me a lot. The quality of the product seems very good and works better for me than the Potassium gluconate tablets from a different brand I've tried. It's helped improve my digestive symptoms after meals. The taste is neutral and inoffensive. There is a slight bitterness but that is all. Very pleased with this product overall.
I'm sure that potassium gluconate is pretty much the same no matter how or who makes it. However if someone has the same product, and the price is say 50% less than somebody else's price, then that is worth something.
I don't know if I'm allowed to mention the Amazon word, but their price for the same product, not the same brand, but the same product, was at least 100% more expensive.
I am on frusemide and so is my dog i like this tasteless powder i can put in some food or milk with other things for my little dog with heart failure. its hard to keep shoving pills down a small brachycephalic dog who is wise to balls of mince with tablets in the middle. I believe this product gives me a lift i can put it in a bit of milk or juice.
I just started using Now Foods,Potassium Gluconate Pure Powder four times a day. I use it per directions of 1/2 teaspoon dissolved in water. This gives me an extra 700 mg, which helps lower my blood pressure and guard against AFIB. It is a very high quality supplement.
No potassium no stomach acid. After years of struggling with reflux which is caused by LOW stomach acid, taking 1 teaspoon of this 3 times per day resolved it in a week. Now all I need to do is find out what is causing my potassium deficiency.
Potassium for clear thinking, and the balance to Sodium and Magnesium. Those are the electrolytes we need in our body. Sodium is every where for flavors, but the added potassium keeps you level headed daily.
An adults RDI (Recommended Daily Intake) is between 3.7 and 4.7 grams. I dont eat many potassium rich foods, so i supplement my potassium intake with this supplement. I find it easy to add the amount i want to a gatorade or powerade and just drink up the amount i want. Taking more than 1 gram in one moment sits like a rock in the stomach though...
