Our objective is to study regularity of superharmonic functions of a nonlinear potential theory on metric measure spaces. In particular, we are interested in the local integrability properties of a superharmonic function and its derivative. We show that every superharmonic function has a weak upper gradient and provide sharp local integrability estimates. In addition, we study absolute continuity of a superharmonic function.
