Conclusion, Potassium is a very essential Mineral of great value. With insufficient vitamins in our food supplies, due to depleted soils from over use. Its very important to know if maybe your tired, fatigued, swollen gut, from a simple deficiency. Again, I am not a Doctor nor a Physician so I cannot diagnose or treat any condition. I do however encourage you to seek you Family Physician or Doctor, to see if you are deficient in this mineral. If you are in kidney failure it is not wise to take Potassium as it may make it a worsened condition. Also, You do not want to take more than what you need.
