I have benign pvc's.  I supplement w/ potassium, mangesium, don't drink caffeine or alcohol.  Still get them.  Anything else I should be doing?

Benign PVCs: As long as you are asymptomatic during these PVC episodes and the P V Cs are not in sustained runs, no further actions needed. Supplements over the counter generally don't help this condition. It is a good idea to see a cardiologist for a cardiac work up at least once to rule out any cardiac pathology. Continue to cut back on alcohol and caffeine. Stay on a healthy diet and a 20 min cardio exerc ...Read more

I began a calcium/magnesium supplement program, how long before I notice the full effects?

I began a calcium/magnesium supplement program, how long before I notice the full effects?

Depends: Why are you on the program? I recommend a 1:1 dosage--i.e., equal amounts of calcium and magnesium. The dosage is determined by your bowel tolerance--i.e., the dosage that gives you diarrhea or loose stools. Just reduce the dosage to what is comfortable for you. Excess calcium impairs magnesium absorption--and inadequate magnesium impairs calcium absorption. ...Read more
