    Hello All,

    Up to this point, most of the discussion seems to be about increasing Potassium consumption as methylation starts-up.

    However, I haven't seen much discussion on how to improve the concentration or utilization of potassium in the cell, and how to improve the potassium transfer into the cell. I stumbled upon a few links that may help the discussion. Perhaps, there is some inefficiency in the K+/Na transfer which is causing a lot of electrolyte waste. Is this a real problem for us or am I barking up the wrong tree?

    The last link suggests two methods for passing K+ through the cells.
    1. Passive based on electrochemical gradient
    2. Na/Ka+ pump. However, per the 3rd link, this method requires ATP which we may be low.

    Internal potassium stimulates the sodium-potassium pump by increasing cell ATP concentration
