I keep having this problem where I burp and then my heart starts beating really fast I've tried taking magnesium tablets and they seem to be helping a?

HeartRate controlled: from brain/mind, not a single element; Mg. Most focus on body behavior (not the control mechanisms underlying all behaviors; thus medical industry focus on body mechanic ,not humans; http://goo.gl/Blh6rW). Heart+brain+mind interaction (termed autonomic) = >100 cycles/second. Most common triggers of faster heart rates are fear & pain. Could same issues triggering the burp also involve heart? Yes. ...Read more

I took 500 mg magnesium 12 hours ago. My heart is starting to have palpitations. Is it dangerous? My hr is 62 also.

I took 500 mg magnesium 12 hours ago.  My heart is starting to have palpitations. Is it dangerous? My hr is 62 also.

Magnesium safe but:: Magnesium is not dangerous and usually helps prevent palpitations. You don't say what form of Mag.; some forms like mag. oxide are very poorly absorbed and thus may have a laxative effect. Mag. taurate and glycinate are best absorbed. The palpitations are likely a coincidence. As for if they are dangerous, most are benign but can not tell for sure without an EKG.

Why does taking magnesium in any form or doseage cause my system to become overstimulated ( heart raceing, wired feeling) instead of calm as it should?

Why does taking magnesium in any
form or doseage cause my system
to become overstimulated ( heart
raceing, wired feeling) instead of
calm as it should?

Why Magnesium?: First question should be why would one need magnesium (mg) to begin with. In normal individuals, the body's homeostatic mechanisms knows how much mg it needs, extracts what it needs from food & excretes the excess. Too much mg usually causes a low heart rate & not a racing heart rate, unless it is concomitantly causing other electrolyte abnormality such as elevated potassium. Try pumpkin seeds. ...Read more

Is there a connection between magnesium oxide and heart health.?

Is there a connection between magnesium oxide and heart health.?

Yes, sometimes: If you have a proven low magnesium level, you need to improve the levels of magnesium in your blood before heart rhythm disturbances develop. Mag oxide helps correct levels. Remember, high magnesium levels in blood also cause heart rhythm disturbances, too. That's why you need not use mag oxide long term without known blood levels of magnesium level. Ok to use it short term for a week or so though. ...Read more

Is one particular form of magnesium better for heart palpitations?I like Glycinate because it doesn't have a laxative effect. Is this good for palps?

Magnesium taurate or: My favorite form of mag. by far is magnesium taurate. Glycinate is a good form too; both are well-absorbed but the taurine in magnesium taurate is good for heart health- see https://tinyurl.com/hpdlzgl
It's hard to find but there's a good form from Cardiovasculat Research Ltd.
Magnesium orotate, sold as Cardo-Mag, is another good choice.

The impact of magnesium on HR I notice when I eat lots of raw almonds heart rate down to mid 50's at rest. Should I stop?I also take atenolol daily.

It is unlikely: that the volume of almonds significantly changes your magnesium level or your heart rate. The Atenolol is much more potent and probably is the source of your bradycardia. It's just coincidence. Enjoy the treat. ...Read more

I did echocardio i have mvp & extrasystole. I take magnesium. Small effort my heart beating 120 min and 2-3 extrasystole. Can i do sport? Dangerous?

Begin slowly: MVP is generally not dangerous. Relatively increased heart rate with very mild exertion can be signs of dehydration, anemia (low blood count) or thyroid issues, and a high adrenalin state related to stress and anxiety. Also could be a sign of being out of shape. Would address above issues with your doctor. Hydrate, start exercise slowly and add stress reduction eg breathing, yoga, meditation. ...Read more
