taking ppl away from it to look for "cheap" supps elsewhere (not to mention "off-label" use, since you are on a horse site) may be frowned upon in some circles
not a whole lot of difference between pot hcl and pot gluconate, but I opt for the latter..
also - keep in mind that the body keeps potassium levels within a very narrow range so the nervous system can function properly, and yes while healthy kidney can clear the excess from the body sufficiently, if you have any kidney health issues however, this can not occur and you are a heart waiting to happen
general advise is to not supplement w/ potassium w/o a doctors guidance - and especially the level you are speaking of
in any event - interesting topic

Bananas are very different from potassium supplements, kinetically. What you're advocating is irresponsible and dangerous, and quite frankly, I think this thread should be removed before you give anyone potentially lethal ideas.
PES - Get Enhanced
The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES
there is just something about the feeling i get with a banana in my mouth
In all honesty though. Get your potassium and the majority of nutrients for that matter from food. Nutrient-ism has taken over our diet and given us a skewed sense of healthy eating. We supplement for nutrients we are lacking while in reality we could just be eating more actual food to get what we need. With the added benefit of the other vitamins in them. Believe it or not potassium alone doesn't work as well as potassium and the other host of things that are in, say, a sweet potato.
My methodology was nothing but well thought out and pre-planned.
And please, do explain how "kinetically" they are different. Is this because bananas have more weight to them when you throw them? if so, I guess your correct.
Ahem, excuse me. For the last time, I am not an idiot. If I am getting this kind of caution for taking potassium as a supplement I'll take note to NEVER log any anabolics...
Fuark people you all come with you strong opinions with complete disregard to the fact that I obviously have heard everything you guys are saying about the risk of BLATANT RECKLESS supplementation of it.
Did you guys forget that I track all of my food on a daily basis and weigh it all out down to the gram? Ish, if you guys really want to make this thread about my personal diet and supplementation decisions I'll link my flippin fitness pal.
How do you know I wasnt implying you should have asked for bananas or sweet potatoes instead of supplements for your birthday?? You know what happens when you assume...
The level of scrutiny I'm getting for trying to help people is insane. I feel like I'm being put through the ringer here or am joing a frat. Ish, if I knew trying to help people with similar situations as myself I would attract so many hateful, hostile, and relentless parrots I would of never started this thread.
Since I joined this forum I have been very active and have provided nothing but positive feedback and well-backed information.
People like you make me feel almost backstabbed. /sigh
I'm done responding here. I have gotton the points out that I wanted, particularly that there is a place to buy affordable bulk electrolytes. If people want to continue to attack me with naive and ignorant warnings and assuming ideas that I havn't thought about this choice, they can do so, but they are grossly underestimating someone they know nothing about.
This patronizing and low-estimation of others is shameful. At most, I was hoping this would lead to an (educated) discussion on the supplementation of potassium and studies that go back and forth, but alas, i guess not.
Respect to all those who were aiming at this and have PMed me. Your not all bad people
I must have taken a wring turn somewhere and ended up in the girls supplements for PMS forum.
I must have taken a "wring" turn as well. I think I ended up at BB.com where no one discusses anything in a constructive manner or exchanges ideas..they just play know-it-all and pile on someone.
Alpo, if its good enough for dogs.....
