The most dramatic and rewarding benefit of magnesium that I have noted, however, is in treating patients with palpitations
and minor heart
rhythm disturbances. One of the most frustrating disorders to treat, from a cardiologist's perspective, is palpitations. Most medications aimed at the elimination of this symptom are toxic. Of the natural approaches, including taurine, the omega-3 fatty acids, coenzyme Q-10, and magnesium, my experience has revealed magnesium to be king.
