Both of my cardiologists (In Philly & Beverly Hills CA.)--tell me taking mega doses of Magnesium....will NOT hurt & may help! (One well known..cadiologist in Beverly Hills--from my home town in Philly--& has written many books...swears by them)
But--You do have to take a significant amt.-the only side effect is a slightly laxitive effect! No big price to pay--for lessining these SVTs... & I HAVE noticed it helps me!
There was a Vitamin Co.(Schiffs) that made a 500 mg tablet--but they do longer do--I buy the TWINLAB Magnesium caps...400 mg....which are easlily absorbed...since they are capsule..rather than hard tablets! I take..3 a day 1.2 grams.....my cardio--says I COULD take up to 5 a day.....2 grams...but...I don;t want to be in the bathrom too much!
Anyway---Discolady-- Hope this helps. Again...you must take at leat over a gram.....This is what the cardiologist told me.....& i'm just quoting him! He's an "electrophysiologist"..& knows his stuff! A small amt...like one capsule/daily--will not help.
Again..i take 3 capsules.....& i notice a small improvment! (IF i stop..i can tell)--The OTHER thing that helps are the "Omega Three & Omega six..gels (Fish oil)-but I buy the top of the line brand--expensive BUT...you';re getting the right amt of the Omega 3s & 6s...I take ResQ150....4 capsules a day...their we site i to order is www.n3inc.com again..expensive--but effective
Primarily they are sold to lower cholesterol....but..it's been found they help w electrical conduction in the heart. My cousin takes them for cholesterol......& his numbers went WAY down! They also have "anti inflammatory qualities! You can take between 4-6 a day. I've been having some increae in my SVTs..(short runs...4 or 5 beats...lasting maybe...5 or 6 seconds at most & many PACs...
Anyway--hope this helps! Taking both--should help-lessen the amt of SVTs..feel free to e-mail me...for other info--regards---Wotan
