1. Magnesium for Arrhythmias and Palpitations
As magnesium is found in nuts, seeds, and greens, is it any wonder that up to 89% of Americans are magnesium deficient? The Standard American Diet is very low in magnesium. Magnesium is critical for everything from DNA repair to keeping your heart beating normally.
Arrhythmias, or abnormal heart rhythms, are very common. The main symptom of an arrhythmia is heart palpitations.
Studies show that one in four adults will experience the most common arrhythmia, atrial fibrillation. Even palpitations from skipped beats (PVCs and PACs) are very common and trouble many people.
Besides living as healthy as possible, are there any proven natural home remedies?
Let me introduce you to magnesium. As a cardiologist, I have seen countless patients benefit from either increasing the magnesium in their diets or from magnesium supplementation. Unless you suffer from kidney disease, magnesium supplements are generally safe.
In a review of 17 medical studies involving 2,069 patients, magnesium supplementation was shown to decrease nearly all arrhythmias following surgery. In particular, the risk of atrial fibrillation was decreased by 29% and ventricular arrhythmias by 48%.
