Does anyone here take an actual potassium supplement? I've always tried to get my potassium through diet, but it's been extremely hot and humid the past several weeks, and because I am now more physically active outdoors, I feel like I need to boost my electrolytes. The hot weather also seems to make my pouch more active (though this could just be the fact that I'm drinking more fluids). Low potassium was a problem for me when I had UC.
I'd only anticipate needing to do this during this very hot spell. For any of those who supplement, how much do you take, and how is it best absorbed? Pill form? Liquid? I'm just looking for some ideas, besides frequently chugging coconut water (which goes right through me!). I also don't like sports drinks as an option. Too much sugar and dye for most.
I’ve been having a problem lately with dehydration. My doc recommended pedialyte, I also sometimes take salt stick chewable tabs, they have electrolytes, can be purchased on amazon.
