WHAT DOES IT DO?
According to the manufacturer:
"Modern human dietary requirements were encoded into our DNA during evolution starting with the Paleolithic diet, which contained about 35% meat and about 65% plant foods. Moreover, these foods of the early human diet had a different composition than foods do today, including a much higher level of potassium (from fruits and vegetables) and much less acid-forming content (because of the increased ratio of plant to animal foods).
The change to a low potassium, high acid-forming content diet has had a profound impact on many aspects of wellness and healthy aging. But adding potassium bicarbonate to your daily dietary program can help support healthy:
- Blood Pressure
- Muscle Mass
- Endothelial Function
- Dietary Acid Load"
Use caution if pregnant or nursing. WARNING: IF YOU ARE TAKING A POTASSIUM-SPARING DIURETIC PRESCRIPTION DRUG DO NOT TAKE SUPPLEMENTAL POTASSIUM. If you have kidney disease you should discuss potassium bicarbonate supplementation with your physician before use. Do not reduce your dose of antihypertensive drugs or discontinue them without consulting your physician.
Take 2 capsules, 2 to 4 times daily, which provide a total of 2.7 g of potassium bicarbonate (1.35 g in each capsule) per 2 capsule serving. The elemental amount of potassium in 2.7 g of potassium bicarbonate is 1.05 g. Each serving should be taken on an empty stomach and washed down with a glass of lukewarm water.
