So calcium (500mg/day) has been a supplement Ive used forever, and recently Ive added Magnesium (800mg/day) because Ive read it could be beneficial for raising HDL levels and lowering blood pressure.... I have high blood pressure and recently my doctor put me on a couple of meds, lisinopril and hydrochlorothiazide. He recommended I take a potassium supplement because the hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic..

I have recently started hot yoga, and with all the sweating, the instructor and class recommends adding minerals to a supplementation regime such as calcium, magnesium and potassium.

I am pretty active, cardio, weights, yoga, and with all the activity and living in Arizona I sweat a lot!

I drink about 2.5 gal a day and I take in about 4,600mg of sodium from Celtic Sea Salt....

Heres the question...
In taking Calcium, magnesium, potassium, is there a ratio to follow? Ive been looking online and some sites recommend upwards of 5g of potassium a day but potassium supplements only come in 99mg, then they say that too much potassium (supplementation) in bad for you.... :confused: There was one site saying that calcium should not be taken with potassium because one will take away from the bioavailability of the other?


Potassium has the benefits of lowering bp among others.....


I look forward to anyone who can shed light on this area... I appreciate any advice or info.
 
one more question...

In looking at the mineral supplements of calcium, magnesium, potassium...

There are sub categories for each :

Potassium:
Asporotate
Citrate
Gluconate
Sulfate
Chloride

Calcium:
Ascorbate
Carbonate
Citrate
D-Glucarate
Hydroxyapatite
Pyruvate

Magnesium:
Ascorbate
Citrate
Malate

What do the different subcategories mean...? Have any of you noticed a difference between any?
