Krampade 2K is ideal for daily use to keep potassium levels optimized. With 2,000 mg of potassium per serving, the equivalent of 5 bananas, our 2K lineup is the best daily source of potassium. Let us help you reach your recommended daily intake of potassium with our 2K formulations.
For acute, severe cramps, we recommend using our 4K (4,000 mg potassium per serving) formulation for rapid cramp relief.
Did You Know
30-70% of athletes will experience exercise associated muscle cramps during competition
Athletes need at least 4,700 mg of potassium each day, plus 250 mg per hour of exercise
- Low potassium in muscles reduces blood flow during exercise, blood flow increases only 30% in low potassium muscle upon exertion but normal potassium in muscles has a 400% increase in blood flow
- Low potassium can cause rhabdomyolysis or muscle cell death
- Low potassium is the cause of exercise associated muscle cramps
75% of men don’t get enough potassium each day, teens consume an average of 2,750 mg per day, while men 20-39 years old consume an average of 3,050 mg per day
99% of women don’t get enough potassium each day, teens consume an average of 2,000 mg per day, while women 20-39 years old consume an average of 2,300 mg per day
The recommended daily intake (RDI)
for potassium is 4,700 mg

How Exercise Associated Cramps Occur
As muscles contract, potassium leaves the muscle as it depolarizes and then is pumped back into the muscle. During each contraction, potassium moves from inside the cells to outside, and is pumped back in when the muscle relaxes. However, not all of this potassium is recovered. With the repeated contractions during competition or practice, more and more potassium is lost. Eventually there isn’t enough potassium left in the muscle for it to relax and a painful cramp occurs.
Cramps occur because the muscle simply does not have enough potassium left to repolarize the membrane leaving the muscle stuck in the contraction signal. Other methods of treatment revolve around stretching the muscle initially to “break” the cramp, and massage to increase blood flow. However, relief is short lived as there still isn’t enough potassium to maintain normal performance.
Only Krampade has the right amount of potassium to not only stop cramps, but with regular use help prevent cramps from occurring. This allows for optimal muscle function throughout competition. With Krampade there is no more fear of cramps and no regrets of what might have been.
Our 4K (4,000 mg potassium per serving) formulation rapidly stops cramps and keep muscles cramps free during competition. Our 2K (2,000 mg potassium per serving) formulation when used several times daily will help prevent cramping.

Benefits of proper potassium
Cramps become a thing of the past
- When used regularly, Krampade prevents cramps from occurring in the first place. Should a cramp occur, the 4K immediately stops active cramps and keeps them away during competition.
- No more inconvenient and painful impediments to your best game.
- Loss of potassium in muscles is the primary
driver of fatigue. Krampade gives you a huge edge with recovery during your workout or competition. To top it off, the potassium in Krampade reduces soreness and increases gains after your workout.
- Help speed your recovery following workouts and games.
- The high potassium in Krampade increases blood flow to your muscles meaning more fuel delivery and longer endurance. Often the edge in a close game comes down to who has better endurance.
- So have the winning edge with Krampade on your side.
- Krampade’s high potassium formulation increases blood flow to skin. This increases the efficiency of cooling and reduces sweating. Professional athletes using Krampade have reported up to 70% less water loss during their workouts just by switching to Krampade.
- Optimize your hydration with Krampade.
Better focus and less brain fog
- Low potassium slows down brain function resulting in “brain fog.” Krampade has the potassium needed to help the brain function faster, increasing focus and reducing brain fog.
- Keep your mind sharp by getting the potassium you need.
How Much Potassium You Need
Athletes need a minimum of 4,700 mg of potassium each day. For every hour of exercise an additional 250 mg of potassium is needed to replace what is lost. But what did the US Army find? They found that new recruits lost an average of 5,600 mg of potassium per day during basic training. Although their plasma potassium level was normal, they lost about 20% of their body’s potassium found in tissues.
This loss resulted in cramping and heat stress, all of which is solved by increasing dietary potassium intake.
Unfortunately, the potassium consumption for a lot of athletes is similar to that of the average American, about 2,600 mg per day. Just two servings of the Krampade 2K daily provides the additional potassium that you need. Using Krampade during your workout will significantly improve recovery and improve gains.
How Krampade Started for Athletes
Our CEO, Dr. Eric Murphy, suffered from chronic cramping his whole life. As a high school and small college athlete, these were extremely detrimental. For years the home remedy for his chronic cramping was grapefruit juice, but this proved less and less effective.
At 49 and still active, if painfully so, he thought there must be another way to live. To the lab he went and with a little self-experimentation, Krampade was born. Suddenly his cramps disappeared! Workouts were easier and recovery was much better!
His son, Sean Murphy, was an avid wrestler and would lose matches he otherwise should win due to cramps and fatigue. Sean started using Krampade and was suddenly winning many more matches. In fact, Sean credits Krampade with propelling him to wrestling at the University of Nebraska.
Shortly after forming Krampade, our first professional athlete, Clarke Saunders, ordered Krampade and saw his performance in professional hockey skyrocket. Clarke could never get his cramping under control and was on the verge of quitting professional hockey.
With Krampade he could finally perform his best and went from an average ECHL goalie, to getting an opportunity in the AHL and even MVP honors in the Alps League and Polish League in Europe.
If Clarke had Krampade earlier in his career where might he be today? Don’t live with regrets, whether a serious professional or a weekend warrior, make sure you can be all you can be with Krampade in your bottle.
