Terrible ulceration and PAIN within hours! Even with food.
I've tried this brand and others like it. Of course it's top notch as it's pure powder by NOW! All potassium chloride powders ulcerate my stomach and cause terrible pain that takes a day or so to go away. I have severe low potassium issues without supplements and tolerate potassium gluconate with NO stomach side effects whatsoever.
Works really well

I have suffered from severe adrenal insufficiency and pregnenolone has helped me to regain so much of my own adrenal function (and to greatly reduce replacement cortisol therapy). Too many stop looking for precursor hormones when they find DHEA and miss out on its unique benefits even before it converts to other hormones like improved visual perception and mental ability. This brand works pretty well for me and is one of the more effective brands I've tried. I open the capsule up and sublingual the powder and I absorb more that way.
Fantastic for two certain desiccated thyroid products!
Cellulose binds up the active ingredient in American-made porcine thyroid tablets that causes a portion to not absorb no matter how well your gut works. Candex, which has cellulAse = death to cellulose, unbinding what just couldn't absorb before. Killing Candida is just an added bonus!! Digestion has improved on this product and my tongue is less white and I don't even eat a low carb diet. I did have 7 days of initial die-off symptoms when starting Candex.

We put a tablespoon in our dishwasher as we make up our own detergent. Citric acid makes our stainless steel shine and protects glassware from the highly alkaline/basic ingredients we use. 90% iso alcohol with as much citric acid as can be dissolved in makes up the rinse aid. A little citric acid on a damp cloth shines up dull stainless steel pots and pans. Also, this is the main ingredient in dishwasher cleaners. Manufacturer states this is from corn-derived dextrose. This is unlike citric acid that is from wheat-derived dextrose, made in China and exported all over the world. Some celiacs, such as myself, react to the minute amount of protein that remains in dextrose or maltodextrin based on wheat. This makes these potentially dangerous ingredients as the Asian types from wheat can be cheaper and American food and supplement companies sometimes choose them over the domestic corn-based products.
Only form I can tolerate orally
I've tried magnesium citrate, malate, oxide and aspartate. All those forms of magnesium gave me bowel issues even at doses below 200 mg elemental. This form does not cause any issues at one pill a day. AND it works like it's supposed to along the lines of increased energy and relaxing muscles.
This Taurine is good

Helps darken stool by apparently increasing bile output. Very slight calming and potassium-retaining effect too. Otherwise this has been good for the cats as cooked tuna has had the taurine destroyed.
Besides all the benefits, this one doesn't "soy" me

Unlike the forms from soy, this vitamin K2 doesn't bother my very sensitive gut. I take K2 MK4 because I have issues where simple cuts keep bleeding and bleeding. Not with vitamin K2. I also don't have calcification issues that got worse trying to capture the benefits of taking vitamin D3. Love this stuff!
No longer gluten-free per label and Now allergen list

The enzymes work well digesting food, although you'll probably need a few pills. The product was 100% gluten-free, but apparently no longer (wheat-free isn't gluten-free as some enzymes are barley-derived). I suggest pancreatin instead.
Effective form of B1

I find that when I take benfotiamine I feel better. I have more energy and my potassium retention greatly improves to where I almost don't need to supplement any (I've traditionally relied heavily on potassium supplements). I stopped this for a day and noticed a strange breathing issue when waking up in the middle of the night, leg burning and of course had low potassium symptoms return. I think regular B1 is fine for some, and it does help me somewhat, but ones like me need this form as it continues to absorb in higher amounts when the dose is increased. Also, definitely a soy and gluten-free product as I react to those nasties if they're in anything.

Nettle root can be used for those with high SHBG (sex hormone-binding globulin) and can suppress its production. I take it for this purpose and I can feel the difference with testosterone levels and it's doing what I want it to do by releasing more testosterone to be free (unbound).
