:Dear Mary,  I read your concern with magnesium and PVC's and I have to tell you that I too read that if you are low on magnesium it can cause arrhythmias.  I had mine checked with a simple blood test and it was indeed low.  I started a supplement of 200mg of magnesium which I take every day or every other day depending how I feel and want to say that my PVC occurence went in half.  I was getting up to 50 a day and now get around 10-20.  I swear by it.  Before the magnesium, no matter how much I tried not to stress about the PVC's, they still came.  It is a relief to have something that helps, even if its only a little.  I know that I would try anything to reduce them by even one (that's how much I hate them).  Good luck to you and I hope you find that magnesium helps you too.
I am trying a form of magnesium called magnesium glycinate.  It seems to be helping!  Please e-mail me at ***@**** or ***@****
