Hi folks ! FNG here. I have question regarding the Supps I am taking? I am 52 years old in excellent heath andhave started working out again. 3x week, full body workout with free weights at home( can't stand the "foofy" gyms. I am making pretty good gains considering my age! I started at 172#, dropped 12# at first, then regained 20# lean mass, in 32 -34 weeks, with approx. 10% BF. My question is in regard to my potassium level. I went to the VA hospital for a routine check up , the blood work revealed a " very high potassium level"!!! I believe it may be due to the supps I am taking?
I am taking(am) my thyroid med 1.38mg, L-arginine, 1000mg, CLA, 1000mg, (pm) L-arginine 1000mg, CLA 500MG, Carnitine500mg, Glutamine 500mg, magnesium,500mg, B12 complex,500mg. I am using Body Fortress 'Super Advanced' HP2 Creatine(pre and post workout) and Inner Armour Peak BCCA 12:1:1 Leucine Loaded(intra-workout) along with whey protein am/ pm. The creatine and the Peak BCCA have potassium phosphate and acesulfame potassium respectively as "additional ingredients" . Could one or both of these be the culprits? ..or am I just overloading my 52 year old metabolism with too many supps? Thanks!
