I have heard alot about potassium definancy and concerned about this. I take a multi - vitamin but I am still concerned. What does everyone do to warrant they get enough. Am I getting enough potassium with the vitamins or do I need to supplement.
Thanks for your help.

Potassium is an necessary mineral.. and one of its functions is to help the body release stored water. If you are deficient in potassium you may find that you have leg cramps. I take a potassium / magnesium supplement daily along with my multivitamin. The dosage on my bottle says 2 tablets 3 times a day.. but i only take 2 tablets in the morning with my multi vitamin as my multi had potassium in it as well. If you are experiencing leg cramps etc it might be a good idea to use a supplement. I also take vitamin C and a calcium supplements
Hope this is of some use!

You can switch from normal salt ( Sodium Chloride ) to a " salt substitute " salt made of Potassium Chloride. When I buy it I make sure to get the kind that is 100 % potassium chloride instead of a combo of the two salts.
Making this substitution for just about 1 / 2 the salt I use solves any cramping I get when I ' m ridding my bike alot in the heat of summer.
