Heart Attacks and Magnesium
Sign of The Times – If You Have a Heart Attack, Insist on Magnesium.
If you end up in the emergency room with a heart attack, make sure you insist on a 2 cc injection of magnesium sulfate.
In double-blind, placebo-controlled scientific study, they looked at 273 patients who were admitted to the hospital for a heart attack. The study published in one of the most prestigious medical journals revealed that after 4 weeks, the people who received the magnesium, only 7% died versus 19% who did not get the magnesium. That means magnesium cut the death rate a walloping 63%.
What was interesting is the fact that the study indicated that the people in the study were give far less than the 2 cc of magnesium recommended above.
Furthermore, the injection of magnesium decreased arrhythmias by 55%. Remember having a heart arrhythmia is one issue doctors are seriously concerned about following a heart attack.
In another study in the same medical journal approximately ten years later revealed that magnesium produced a 24% reduction in the number of deaths in one month after the heart attack.
