What type of potassium is used?Updated a month ago

The type of potassium used in the electrolyte drink is Potassium Chloride - which is a highly bioavailable form (Caplain, 1991). This is via extracting raw materials in conventional mining underground and above ground as well as through brining (brine mining). Our supplier uses the power of the sun to extract salt by evaporating salty water.
