It does help. I am on 400 andonce my body got used to it, my last SVT that took me to the ER was in December.

I have to make it this time! My health depends on it!

I've had an extra heart beat since I was a teenager. I used to think my heart would stop and when I told my Mom that it scared her.

Only recently my cardiologist said it is not a skipped beat, but an extra beat. He put me on 250 mg of magnesium/day. It helps.

thank you
Coach Jen for the info. I notice they say for my age group 310mg a day. My cardiologist has me on 400 and so far with the help of the Cardizem it has held the attacks at bay. I need more bran in my life.

I have to make it this time! My health depends on it!

Here's some info you might find helpful:

Also keep in mind that magnesium isn't one of the nutrients required to be reported on a food label, so you could actually be getting more of it in your diet than you think.

I have SVTs but have been controlling them with magnesium and some of the meds the doc prescribed when I can't get my heart rate down myself. I know that menopause brings this on, and it did for me as well as other triggers but since I have been taking large doses of magnesium, I have not been to the ER to convert since 12/21/13. Does anyone have an idea about how to get more magnesium in their diet and still lose weight? Especially vegetarians.
