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 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 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 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.

Why do you say you need that much potassium? Isn't the safe sodium/potassium ratio from 2.5:1 to 4:1? That's easily achievable from whole foods.

Bananas pose no such risk because they take hours to digest and absorb.
But alas, if you choose not to heed my advice, we have nothing more than natural selection at play.

Point taken. It appears that even the Linus Pauling Institute people removed that recommendation from their site and no longer advise K supplementation without medical consult/tests.

I have had potassium prescribed to me by my doctor, so I have some experience with this. You really need a blood test to see if you are deficient. You can't just assume you need so much and take it on your own. That can be extremely dangerous.

Besides, bananas are dirt cheap.

Maybe I'll start a potassium supplementation log... That should be fun

I just suggest you take what Cooper said into account.
I'm not sure on how the tablets are formed or the matrix's they used but if they leach out too quickly from the tablet (in high doses) they can kill tissue inside the body. Supplement companies are aware of this and formulate their capsules to ensure they do not secrete too much potassium to quickly.
That is why non-prescription K+ supplements are restricted at ~99mg.
It just doesn't seem like a safe idea to me.

But, it helps some people keep control over eating, or I should say, micro managing their eating, and lead to positive results.
But as far as real accuracy, the numbers you see on a food label are pretty worthless.
Another note, if your so poor, you most likely can't afford a legitimate edee test, done in a laboratory setting, so you bmr is inaccurate as well. Possibility it can be close, depending on which method you use. Most use Harris Benedict, which is outdated, and pretty inaccurate.

The proper term is the Sodium Potassium pump. The body has to maintain homeostasis between the 2. If one becomes overpowering, the individual cells could begin to implode on themselves. For instance, if you inject 5ml of K-HCL directly into the coratid artery, the person will die from the inside out. Why? Because the potassium caused the sodium-potassium pump to become out of whack. And as soon as 1 cell implodes, the ones surrounding it implode as well. Basic biology.
I'm just trying to bring sexy back.

Elevated serum K+ (as seen in the potassium injections) causes hypoexcitability of voltage gated sodium channels due to inactivation by creating a pseudo-depolarized state. This makes it virtually impossible to fire action potentials across the SA-AV-Purkinje system, causing arrhythmia and death. Cells don't "implode." They may shrink due to hypertonicity, but this would not be observed with potassium since it is an inctracellular osmolyte.
