Dear Sir
Thanks for your query to us.
1. Arginine, one of the principle products, in BIO PT elixir can have blood pressure lowering effect. So you have to be very careful when you take this supplement on your own.
2. The exact management of anemia involve a wrok up to know the cause and then treating the underlying cause.
3. I do not think high potassium levels will be helped by liquor.
Overall I will not recommend you to take BIO PT neither I prefer liquor to decrease potassium level. Please consult your physician and get proper treatment.
