A low sodium salt has contents: 66.6%potassium chloride,33.3%sodium chloride.Should I be concerned on its high potassium or good replacement for salt?
Use caution.: Salt intake and salt replacements are getting a lot of press lately. Sodium load in a diet is getting out of control due to practices of our food industry and taste requirements. People look at the alternatives and Potaccium is one of them. A usual replacement shows that the ratio of NaCL/KCl should be 60/40. So your salt may be showing an unusual ratio. But be aware that it is quantity not ratio. ...Read more
Different molecule: Both Potassium Chloride and bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) are used as potassium supplements with the only difference being the part of molecule (the anion) attached to the potassium.

It is for this reason that potassium bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) can be used as an aantacid. ...Read more

Long distance runners can be susceptible to hyponatremia, and risk factors include long distances (marathons, ultra-marathons), women, low body weight, inadequate training, and water loading before and during the race, especially if more weight is gained by water than lost by sweat. ...Read more
Is salt restriction really necessary for hypertension? Is there any side effect of salt substitute (potassium chloride) that I should be aware of?
Potassium and HBP: In the absence of chronic kidney disease, potassium ingestion has a beneficial effect on blood pressure. A review article showed that increased potassium intake is potentially beneficial to most people without impaired renal handling of potassium for the prevention and control of elevated blood pressure and stroke. Here is the link: http://www.Bmj.Com/content/346/bmj.F1378. Speak to your physician. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
