Magnesium is... crucial in maintaining a healthy heart beat


Magnesium plays a massive role in stimulating and regulating muscle contractions, and with the heart being the hardest working muscle in the body, deficiency in said mineral can be detrimental to heart health.⁠

On average an adult heart beats 72 times a minute and these contractions in the cardiac muscle fibres are caused by calcium. Magnesium is calcium’s counter partner in these functions, and by relaxing the muscles prevents overstimulation - which could result in heart rhythm problems such as atrial fibrillation.⁠

Regular heart muscle contractions are further supported by electrical impulses, and the pump that generates these, also relies on magnesium to ensure proper functioning.⁠
