      What is Potassium Citrate?

Potassium is critical for normal heart and nerve function, muscle contraction and fluid balance.

          Originally used this project to prevent cramps due to loss of electrolyes. According to Wikipedia and other sources, Potassium Citrate is perscribed by doctors to prevent flare-ups of Gout. I have to say the only time I have had a gout flare-up since I started using this is when I ran out... :-)

              Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe Potassium Citrate 99 MG - 300 Capsules:

              I originally bought potassium to help prevent cramping on rides of more than 40 miles or so - the point at which I could start to feel them coming on in my hamstrings. I read that it doesn't really work that way, but that doesn't jive with my own experience that I can usually go for more miles than I can without it. I take one in the morning every day, and one at night if I've ridden that day. After doing some research, I found that the citrate version helps prevent kidney stones. Since my brother had one last year, I would imagine that I'm genetically predisposed to having one, but haven't yet. Since they seem to have a lot of benefit, and no downside that I can see, I recommend this product to anyone who excercises regularly.

                  This key electrolyte aids in proper heart muscle functioning, as well as eliminates leg cramps at night,(my main use). Never really cared for bananas, and these quickly add a boost to your health. 3 caps a day each morning with the rest of my supplements and I'm good to go. Highly recommended for adolescents in their growth spurts, athletes in-training, etc.

                      As the natural citric potassium salt, this product does a good job and doesn't cause me any upset stomach or any other discomfort. I take it with food and it works well for me. Hopefully it will help me never have to worry about kidney stones; plus it balances acidity---double win ;)

                      Primarily because it is in capsule form!
                      VALERI M on Jan 13, 2016
                      I have been taking potassium citrate 1080 MG SA Tabs three times a day two caps at a time. That replaces "K citrate 20mg" given to me as a sample from my urologist. It was very expensive so it was switched to the 1080 MG SA tabs. Now, the question - how does Vitamin Shoppe Potassium Citrate 99mg compare to the others?
                      Fred D on Dec 17, 2013
                      Dr has prescribed 5mg of potassium Citrate for the clearing of urine producing stones. Is this the same or more than the 5mg?
                      A Vitamin Shoppe customer on Dec 31, 2013
                      Best Answer: I would like to add that all over-the-counter potassium is just 99 milligrams by law. This is why doctors tend to prescribe it for patients that need considerably more - so you don't have to take a lot of pills all day long. The doctors can also prescribe time-release potassium. However, as pointed out, prescriptions are expensive and often unnecessary when you can just buy the OTC version and take a few more pills. I have always found that time-release doesn't work very well anyway and spreading your potassium out throughout the day is the best way to take it to avoid gastric upset. Always take with food or a large glass of water unless instructed otherwise by your physician.

                      This product is sold as a capsule, can it be crushed or cut in half?
                      A Vitamin Shoppe customer on Jan 18, 2014
                      Best Answer: I am not finding information on the website to explain what a capsule is. That would help.

                      Their capsules are actually clear tubes with powdered potassium citrate in it. You can open the tubes and pour out the powder, so this might work for what you have in mind. You could pour out half of the powder or any amount that you want. You could use the other end of the tube to pour an equal amount in both ends and get exactly half.

                      I very much like their vitamins.
