Discussions that mention potassium

High & Low Blood Pressure board


Hi Fizzie -
You might want to consider/investigate a dandelion supplement. I have been taking one for several years (even thru my third pregnancy) for general water retention.
Dandelion is a natural diuretic that does not cause a loss in potassium. You can take it as a capsule, tincture or tea.
I currently take 1 400 mg capsule a day, along with 1/2 of the lowest dose of an antihypertensive med that contains an ARB and hctz.
Hope this helps....... Take Care!
