My doctor recommended that I start taking a potassium supplement, but there are so many varieties that I have no idea which to order. Is it actually beneficial to take potassium that came from "multiple sources" or is that just a marketing claim to move product? Any idea?

I'm not sure since I usually just get some bananas or potatoes when I need a boost in potassium. Do you take any other supplements and vitamins? Maybe sticking with the same brand would be best.

I take them to stave off leg cramps sometimes. My understanding is that no form of potassium supplement is any better than the other, but potassium citrate might be easier on the stomach. I usually just buy whatever is on sale at the time.
