Afternoon all... Will start with a description of what caused me to look for potassium, and then get to the question.
Got completely obliterated, shnockered, drunk, blitzed, hammered... whatever you want to call it on Sunday. (- save the speech, it's not a normal occurrence.) Woke up on Monday morning realizing I blacked out some of the night, but not feeling too bad. Matter of fact, I thought it would be good to sweat it out at the gym.
So, I forced myself to workout. I didn't have one of my best gym days, but it wasn't too bad either. I drank mostly spirits and not a lot of beer. Beer usually gives me a ridiculous amount of energy the next day. I digress...
I ran 5 miles and then worked chest, tris, and core.
I drank plenty of water to rehydrate (about a gallon, which is fairly standard for me anyway).
Last night I cramped up something fierce like I never have before. Right quad, left calf, and my jaw... they stuck around for a while, eased off and then came back a few times through the evening and while in my sleep. I rehydrated all day and took muti-vitamins and B complex, but apparently that wasn't enough.
This morning I woke up and the cramping is still pretty bad. Didn't stop me from working out, but got me to the store to buy some Potassium which I understand helps with cramping.
I eat low carb, so not eating bananas for Potassium.
So, the question...
The bottle says Potassium Asporotate. There were 3 brands of potassium available and they all had the same amount of active potassium - 99mg.
Serving is 1 capsule per day for 3% of my daily value.
1 cap per day and only 3% of the daily value? Am I missing something here? Can I take more?
Also while I'm here, any suggestions for natural potassium sources on a Low Carb way of eating?
Thanks - R
