Magnesium taurate

Hi all, an odd question but does anybody that they suffer worse from afib and ectopics whilst taking magnsium taurate, i am currently taking 375mg daily on advice but have noticed that the last couple of periods that i have used this my heart misbehaves, whilst returning to the norm if i run out or stop using for a period of time, this could purely be coincidence but thought i would ask the question - thanks

I take MG Taurate on recommendations from others here and Dr Sanjay Gupta. My AFIB episodes have reduced in both severity and frequency. I can't be sure it's the Mg but they certainly haven't increased at all whilst I've been taking it. Did your GP recommend it or are you just trying it out?

Sanjay Gupta posts some great advice on U tube about AF and magnesium.I did read that magnesium if you take too much can give you loose stools so to reduce dosage if that happens.

Hi, thanks for reply, i have watched a number of his uploads on this subject, i can only assume that i have coincidently had a bad run of Afib whilst on Mg, but i will keep taking it as it seems to have had a positive effect on all - cheers

I take one tab every day like clock work. I'm convinced it's helped hugely. I also take Hawthorne every day. And co enzyme

Mmmm ....you may want to get some advice on taking CoQ10 as well, my Naturopath thinks for me (Lone PAF, 63yo) Mg works best with CoQ10 - one relaxes the other strengthens. You can be tested for your levels of Red Cell Mg and CoQ10 at BioLab London and I understand is best to make sure you are in the top quartile.

Hope something there helps.

Magseium is required by the body for many functions and especially as a heart calmer. I take 800mg a day. Secret is to slowly increase until you get loose bowel then step it back. Taurine is another excellent heart calmer and I take half a teaspoon a day. If you google a site called AFibbers it has oodles of excellent information on AF. Has kept me sane over the years. tell the Joy sent you 🤗🤗

I am female, 77, and have had PAF for 10 years. Ablation 3 years ago which reduced the frequency. I have been taking Magnesium Taurate 125mg and CoQ10 for a few months now with no AF! Long may it continue. I walk every day, no shortness of breath or pain ever....Meds: Metoprolol 50mg Apixaban 50mg twice a day. Flecainide 50mg pill in the pocket just in case! My plan in life is to get on with it, do it whilst you can.....
