I had to google "toxic potassium" to figure what you're talking about. Just ignore that pseudo-science BS. The logic is like "possasium is used in lethal injections, we fertilize plants with potassiums, therefore plants have toxic potassium", pure... (more)

I would take colostrum because of the amount of IgA, PrP's and other constituents that help heal the gut! The colostrum that has done research and has been written up in an editorial is Immune Tree.
