Low-Normal Magnesium Levels and Palpitations

Hello Everyone,

I've been suffering from palpitations (PVCs and PACs) for a couple of years now and I can't seem to find a way to get rid of them. My magnesium levels are low-normal, 1.7 (range: 1.6-2.5), could this be causing my palpitations? Thank you in advance.

Some folks have reported (anecdotal)  relief by supplementing magnesium.  One of the tricks is to NOT use magnesium oxide.   Mag ox is a very strong bond and difficult even for your gut to break down.  Use a chelated form of it, such as magnesium taurate or magnesium glycinate.  I recommend the latter (from personal experience).

Magnesium serum isn't accurate as the body will try and keep magnesium levels in the blood in good range at the expense of the cells which could be quite depleted. My magnesium deficiency symptoms show up overnight when I eat sugar and you can bet no lab will show that! I take magnesium chelated with amino acids for better absorption.

you probably just are going through some random PVC episodes. if you have been tested and checked, its probably benign ectopic beats. my magnesium levels are within normal, and I get em all the time. I wish there was a definitive answer or med. PVCs are a real drag. hope things get better.

Thank you so much for your help. I am currently trying to eat lots of magnesium containing foods such as spinach. If it doesn't work I'll try a chelated version of magnesium.
