Magnesium influences the heart

During the biochemical processes in the organism, magnesium is an antagonist of calcium and ensures that its effect, which is - generally stimulating, does not go out of control. A deficiency of magnesium can, therefore, favour the occurrence of cardiac arrhythmias.

Studies in the USA and Germany have proven that the mineral plays an important role in connection with the cardiac function. Experts made it clear that the occurrence of cardiac arrhythmias, one of the most frequent causes of sudden cardiac death, is related to a low magnesium intake, so that they provide the advice that magnesium should be taken regularly.

The German Nutrition Association (DGE) recommends that older people should take 300-400mg magnesium per day. Magnesium is especially available with a high degree of bioavailability in magnesium citrate, such as to be found in Magnesium-Diasporal® 300 mg,  granules for oral solution (now packed in practical sticks).
