Managing Potassium Deficiency - Share your experience

Thanks Freddd.

Having now read the thread, it seems like the question has been asked about potassium affecting B12 absorption, as well as methylfolate. No-one chimed in with any immediately obvious reasoning behind that.

Has anyone any personal experience with potassium interfering with either B12 or methyfolate, if both are taken orally?

@ahmo: when do you take your folate / B12 with respect to your footbaths, please?

@Lotus97: you mention the interference in another thread - can you shed any light here?

Ideally, I can stick Me / Ad B12 & folate in sublingually and drink potassium gluconate solution all day without any problems. Guess I'll have to get myself at a constant level and try it.

The reason I'm asking is because the timing creates problems for me. I would like to achieve the clarity that B12 & folate give as early as possible during the day, and waiting around for potassium is inconvenient...

Possibly I'm not far along enough in the process yet. Maybe a little further down the road, I'll be leaping out of bed first thing in the morning, brimming with energy.

Edit:
Ho hum... Just found another thread with a similar, unanswered, question. I won't hold my breath.

It's never been a problem for me, that I'm aware of. I've been taking potassium gluconate with methylcobalamin and methylfolate since 2010. Freddd's posts were a lifesaver for me, because starting methylfolate caused my potassium levels to tank, creating severe fatigue. And if I had been unaware of the potential for my potassium to drop, I would have had to stop the methylfolate, which I badly needed.

I take Solgar metafolin with breakfast and lunch, and I take sublingual liquid methylcobalamin a.m. and p.m. And I take potassium gluconate with each meal and before bed and in the middle of the night. It used to be very common for me to get foot/leg cramps during the night until I started taking potassium.

eta: it is possible that I would absorb the metafolin better if taken apart from potassium, but I've never read about this before and so don't know if it's really an issue.

Hi Tima,

I and some thousands of others have healed ourselves to various extents with this and perhaps other variations of B12/folate treatments. I can't speak for any doctors or their patients
Excellent post. Subbed.
