    Get a look at this!

    "Those with experience in licorice root processing have determined that glycyrrhizin exists in licorice root in the form of mixed potassium-magnesium-calcium salts."

    Good find.

    And licorice is more delicious than supplements.

    Another interesting twist is some forms of licorice are salty.

    I guess I'm asking if the expensive supplements appear to work better than the inexpensive ones.

    By the way: I'm craving black licorice!
    What's up with that?
    I've been using the Spring Valley Natural brand (Wal-Mart or online):

    Potassium 99 mg (cut in half)
    Magnesium 400 mg (cut in half) this also includes Zinc 15 mg
    Oyster Shell Calcium 500+D (Calcium 500 mg + D 400 I.U.) full tab twice-a-day

    Now, if you are more into the natural foods, I would suggest eating plenty of potato skins, bananas and cantaloupe for natural potassium (yummy) and plenty of black or red beans as well as tomatoes and tasty spinach for magnesium. Hmm... I'm hungry.

    (I've never been a fan of black licorice -- you can have all of mine!)

    BTW, I eat a wide variety of foods that contain calcium, magnesium and potassium... however I think my body just needs more; I would be huge if I ate the way I wanted to! Supplements, thankfully, seem to work for me.

    My wife once wondered aloud if she was having thyroid problems.

    I looked at her legs and said "I think your thigh-roids are fine. It's your butt-roid that's getting out of hand."

    I didn't see her for two days after that.

    On the third day, the swelling went down a little and I could see her some with my left eye...
