I started having bad leg cramps. A friend told me to take potassium. I did and the leg cramps stopped. I ran out and didn't buy anymore. The cramps came back so I do believe in supplements. Started taking the potassium again and the cramps stopped again. Be careful of the dosage though. Too much can be bad. I buy mine at a dollar store. Went to a health food store and the lady tried to sell me several things. It would have cost me over $100. I pay $2.00 at the dollar store for one bottle of potassium. They last two months.
A word of advice. If you are getting your supplements at a dollar store you may want to consider whether those supplements are putting your health at more risk than if you had taken too much potassium. A word to the wise. M
