Magnesium and Potassium

Do any of you take magnesium or potassium supplements to help maintain normal sinus rhythm? If so, how much of each do you take daily, and which version (chelate) do you take?

I take Magnesium Gluconate 550mg twice daily.

    I take 250 mg Cardio Research Magnesium Taurate with my PM pills.Before bed, I take 250 mg Triple Calm Mag.  I've been taking some form of Magnesium since my Triple Bypass in 2009.  Except once at the beginning, I ran out and didn't bother getting more.I had an 'incident'.....ended up in the ER & have taken Magnesium every day since then.  ~barbara  ♥

    As long as the body is low on magnesium it will not absorb the potassium.I corrected my afib with magnisium chloride liquid, magnesium citrate powder, and pills of magnesium taurate along with magnesium oil applied directly to the skin. I did not just take the normal dosage I took a lot. Hope that helps. I was also taking about 600 mgs a day. 65 will not make a dent.

    I take 665mg of magnesium glycinate twice a day as well as 99mg of chelated potassium daily. Both are from Piping Rock, a respected seller of vitamins and supplements. I drink seltzer water throughout the day and keep my caffeine intake down to two cups of coffee in the morning with an occasional cup of black or green tea in the afternoon.

    Realitychek: I saw a docuvideo yesterday where a patient stopped chronic leg cramps with vitamin E. You might want to try it.

    I found out by trial &error that a glass of V8 will stop my Afib if I take it soon enough. This discovery has led to my having a glass every morning. It is loaded with Potassium, 900mg per 8oz. I use the low sodium variety. Check your BP meds to see if you can handle it.I use a gel form of magnesium. If you have kidney issues, don’t use it, otherwise one once a day applied to skin or massaged into sore muscles works wonders. We are all different. I’m just sharing what works for me.

    I have been investigating magnesium and potassium for the past five months after serndipitously discovering that magnesium stopped my arrythmia of 15 years. Still have not been able to find a cardiologist or other MD who is willing to give me a hand on this journey of balancing minerals/electrolytes. I have discovered a treasure of information on a facebook group called Magnesium Advococy Group - and warmly you recommend you "join" the group and search through the many files available there to learn more about balancing minerals. Good luck!
