Magnesium: One of the Most Important Nutrients for Heart Health

Without magnesium the heart muscle cannot hold potassium, resulting in palpitations and increased heart attack risk.

Take both magnesium and potassium citrate.

The best form of magnesium and potassium for the heart (but expensive) is magnesium and potassium orotate, but potassium and magnesium citrate will work as well.

(Take no supplement that contains artificial sweeteners in any form (Aspartame, NutraSweet)).

If you additionally take bromelain 500 mg (daily) your heart will be very happy.

Magnesium — One of the Most Important Nutrients for Heart Health:

Story at-a-glance

  • Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in your body and is involved in more than 600 different biochemical reactions. Research suggests even subclinical deficiency can jeopardize your heart health
  • A lack of magnesium will impede your cellular metabolic function and deteriorate mitochondrial function, and magnesium deficiency has been identified as the greatest predictor of heart disease
  • Magnesium is also important for chromosome folding, which allows cells to divide, multiply and regenerate to make up for lost or damaged cells
  • Check your RBC magnesium level and track signs and symptoms of magnesium insufficiency to determine how much magnesium you need. Low potassium and calcium are also common laboratory signs indicating magnesium deficiency
  • To optimize your magnesium level, eat magnesium-rich foods and/or take a magnesium supplement. Taking Epsom salt baths is another effective way to boost your magnesium level

By Dr. Mercola

Magnesium deficiency is extremely common, and recent research shows even subclinical deficiency can jeopardize your heart health. Magnesium is also important for brain health, detoxification, cellular health and function, and the optimization of your mitochondria. In short, magnesium has enormous potential to influence your health and general well-being, especially the prevention of heart disease and cancer, but also for general energy and athletic performance.

Dr. Mercola: Magnesium Reduces Diabetes and Helps Keep You Young

Drinking alcoholic beverages consumes large amounts of magnesium.

Magnesium Reduces Diabetes and Helps Keep You Young:

Story at-a-glance

  • Magnesium is an essential mineral used in energy production, protein signaling and cell signaling in almost every organ and muscle in your body, especially your heart, bones and kidneys
  • Research found higher intake of magnesium was linked with a lower risk of diabetes, even when combined with eating foods with a high glycemic index
  • Magnesium insufficiency, or levels lower than supports optimal health but not low enough to trigger symptoms of deficiency, are associated with over 22 different medical conditions, including diabetes, heart disease and infertility
  • Insufficiency is related to a higher rate of aging but may be prevented by consuming foods high in magnesium, protecting your gut health, using supplements and Epsom salt baths

By Dr. Mercola

Magnesium is an essential mineral used in pathways for energy production, protein synthesis and cell signaling.1 The mineral is involved in nearly 300 metabolic reactions.2 It is used by every organ and muscle in your body, especially your heart, kidneys and bones. Deficiency and insufficiency have been associated with a number of health conditions, including heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, hypertension and osteoporosis.

Study: Sugar Industry Shut Down Research Over Cancer Link

Sugar industry shut down research over cancer link – study:

A newly discovered cache of documents has revealed an alleged decades-long effort by the sugar industry to conceal the detrimental effects of the commodity on consumers’ health.

In a study published Tuesday in the journal PLOS Biology, scientists from the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) claim the industry manipulated science, influenced regulations and even shut down its own research when it indicated a link between sugar and heart disease almost 50 years ago.

“The Sugar Association proved to itself that calories from sugar had different metabolic effects than calories from starch,” lead author Cristin E. Kearns, who discovered the industry documents, told UCSF. “This is in stark contrast to its public position, then and now, that all calories are created equal.”

The study claims that a Sugar Research Foundation (SRF) scheme, entitled Project 259, which had been set up to investigate the effects of sugar in animals in 1969, deliberately withheld evidence that sugar consumption creates high levels of triglyceride, a type of fat that travels through the blood – an issue that can lead to poor bladder and cardiovascular health.

After attacking coconut oil as “dangerous” and pushing blood pressure drugs as the solution, American Heart Association president suffers a heart attack

After attacking coconut oil as “dangerous” and pushing blood pressure drugs as the solution, American Heart Association president suffers a heart attack:

In what appears to be a clear case of irony, the president of the American Heart Association, John Warner, suffered what doctors say was a minor heart attack earlier this week after his organization advised Americans earlier this year to stop using butter in their foods and replace it with toxic, artery-clogging vegetable oils instead.

According to a published report on the AHA website, Warner — himself a cardiologist (another irony) and CEO of UT Southwestern University Hospitals in Dallas — is in stable condition after doctors inserted a stent into a blocked artery.

Scientists Transform Spinach Leaves Into Beating Human Heart Tissue

Scientists Transform Spinach Leaves Into Beating Human Heart Tissue:

Using the plant like scaffolding, scientists have transformed spinach leaves into working human heart tissue. This amazing discovery is expected to one day aid in tissue regeneration.

Scientists have found a way to use spinach to build working human heart muscle, potentially solving a long-standing problem in efforts to repair damaged organs reported National Geographic.

Their study, published in the journal Biomaterials, offers a new way to grow a vascular system, which has been a roadblock for tissue engineering.

Scientists have already created large-scale human tissue in a lab using methods like 3D printing, but it’s been much harder to grow the small, delicate blood vessels that are vital to tissue health.

“The main limiting factor for tissue engineering … is the lack of a vascular network,” says study co-author Joshua Gershlak, a graduate student at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) in Massachusetts, in a video describing the study. “Without that vascular network, you get a lot of tissue death.”

THE ULTIMATE MICROBIAL CLEANSE

FYI.


THE ULTIMATE MICROBIAL CLEANSE:

Walter Last

Most diseases are caused or aided by microbes and parasites. Due to antibiotics, steroidal drugs and chemotherapy our natural intestinal bacteria have been damaged and pathogenic microbes, especially fungi and mycoplasmas, are out of control. Commonly babies now become inoculated with pathogens already in the birth canal. Also microbes from childhood vaccinations may still be present, and there tend to be infection foci in root-canal treated teeth and possibly in scars from surgery. All of these greatly weaken our immune system and allow pathogenic microbes to invade the blood and internal organs. Now we become susceptible to frequent infections, autoimmune diseases, allergies, diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Pathogenic microbes are the underlying cause of basically all chronic diseases.

H/t reader squodgy:

“I wonder if this is instrumental in the Arhythmia epidemic?”

Deficiency of minerals like calcium, potassium and especially magnesium can be considered to be the main cause.

Consumption of alcoholic beverages dramatically increases also the consumption of magnesium.

You can’t easily replace the loss of magnesium caused by just two glasses of wine.

“Heart palpitations, “flutters” or racing heart, otherwise called arrhythmias, usually clear up quite dramatically on 500 milligrams of magnesium citrate once or twice daily or faster if given intravenously.”
– Dr. H. Ray Evers
