Comments about Country Life Magnesium Potassium Aspartate, Tablets, 90 ea:
Back in 1997, after a terrifying late-night trip to the ER with skipping heart, labored breathing, and tunnel vision, I was diagnosed with Mitral Valve Prolapse and Pre-ventricular Contractions. The wise doctor at the ER discussed with me all the available options as far as medications, and said I could be on something like beta-blockers, but I would have to take them for the rest of my life (I was 30-ish then). He then offered me an alternative: Go to the health food store and buy some tablets from Country Life called Magnesium Potassium Aspartate. Since the heart is a big ol' muscle, and since magnesium is necessary to keep muscles from cramping or spasming, he said I would be the perfect candidate to try this vitamin instead of dangerous, side-effects-loaded medicines. I took the tablets for about four or five days, and started noticing a decrease in the "skipping beats" episodes. As time went on, they got further and further apart, until one day I realized I had gone quite awhile with none at all!!! I have taken this vitamin ever since. OF COURSE, anyone with the symptoms I had should go to a heart specialist for tests and counseling, but ask if this vitamin is a possibility in place of medications. It has worked like a charm for me for over 13 years now--can't say enough good about it.
