"I have been buying potassium at a lot of different places. Vitacost has the best price. And if they say it has 99 mg, then it does. I have bought potassium at other places and it didn't seem to work. This is the potassium to buy."
"After studying acidity vs. alkalinity within the body, I discovered how effective potassium (especially in the citrate form) is in maintaining proper body ph. Although my diet (coffee, alcohol, ect.) requires quite a few capsules per day, (limited to 99 mg per serving by law) I'm glad it's sold in a 300 count size. I consider it a must as part of my daily supplement regimen in promoting a long and healthy life. Be sure to test saliva or urine in order to determine dosage. (I found that urine testing is most accurate) I would like to see Vitacost stock the test "stix" instead of just the inferior strips."
"Best Potassium product on the market. Can't beat the price. Since the law limits the amount of potassium you can have in each pill, I would like to see this product offered in larger quantities of pills."
