    Right, but the point is that you couldn't get it from pills without eating a ton of them because it isn't legal to sell it in large enough doses to get 100% of the rda.

    Coconut water has a lot of potassium as well. I personally don't like bananas....

    i don't like them in banana form. i throw one in a blender with a few berries, some yogurt, and a touch of juice.

    If I have to eat them by themselves I like them a touch green/less sweet. What about fried plantains, those are decent once in awhile.

    Durian is loaded with K, but it's pretty stinky.

    Thanks for the list.

    I was mainly curious if anyone had ever been sick from it, since the deadly nature if it is why it is regulated.

    This chunk of potassium is rich in potassium. Just throw it in your blender!

    Wasn't asking where to get it.
    Was asking about experiences with overdosing and toxicity.

    What did you find out about this mandown?

    I find it hard to believe that one could OD or get too much potassium, even if they are taking supplements.

    I started doing bikram yoga again and because of the amount of sweat it causes, I need to take some supplements to put back what I lose, so this subject is something I think about....

    Sweet potatoes and dates are both high in potassium!
