Potassium chloride vs carbonate as a supplement

I take 10g K Bicarb a day. Helps with many things. Some may say it helps the body stay alkaline without it having to leach calcium. Muscles feel great on it.

However, it raises stomach pH an I can feel that (doesn't help digestion). On an empty stomach, it's fine; but while hiking etc I often need to take it with food.

So considering equivalent amounts of elemental potassium, which is better, what are the pluses and minuses of each?

Just want a comparison with KCL. I dont take it for the alkline bit, but for the potassium. Anyone?

It's probably a matter of being potassium replete more than more alkaline, your body is carefully buffered. Seriously, has nobody read the Andromeda Strain?

I tend to think those body PH people are bonkers.
