Comment:
I was given 2 vials of 15 grams each. I took the 15 grams and nothing happened. The next day I took the 2nd 15 grams and still nothing. I have now taken 30 more grams (later the second day) and I will have to wait and see. I expected to have something by now after reading the previous reviews. I wanted someone to know, it doesn't't always work and definitely not quickly.

Very bad after taste. Works well to lower K. It causes diarrhea. I am wondering if causes constipation then how it rids of K?

Comment:
I'll never complain about taking pills again! Talk about nasty, this stuff is tolerable but still not pleasant to take, the flavor isn't the problem but the grittiness makes it unpleasant. And I didn't know that it would cause such horrible diahrea. I won't get going anywhere while taking this. Yet I know it's necessary to rid the abundance of potassium in my system.
