Hey there "Mountain Girl" ! I Love your handle! There really isn't any such thing as a vitamin supplement for potassium. As far as i know, all 5 types of Potassium are just plain ol' Mineral supplements with differen't strengths (ie 99mg elemental potassium) They can advertise 'em any way they want to make a few extra bucks, but it's all just different types and strengths of potassium. Sacosam I AM!
