1. can magnesium lower the pulse?

Magnesium is essential for many tasks in the human organism, especially for blood pressure. As a counterpart of calcium, magnesium regulates the heartbeat. In this way, the heart can beat properly and does not get out of sync. Responsible for the heartbeat is the stimulation system. It consists of cells which are located in the right atrium. This collection of cells is called the sinus node. It determines how often the human heart beats per minute. If people with heart disease have low magnesium levels, the risk of cardiac arrhythmias increases. In most cases, extra beats occur in the heart, also called extrasystoles. Taking magnesium can lower the pulse due to the relaxation of vascular muscles.

What is the daily requirement of magnesium?

According to the recommendation of the German Nutrition Society (DGE), adults should consume about 300-400 mg of magnesium per day. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), which sets the NRV, recommends 350 mg of magnesium per day for men and 300 mg for women.
Children should consume between 170-300 mg of magnesium depending on their age. The daily requirement of magnesium can usually be well met with a balanced and healthy diet. In the event of a magnesium deficiency, the daily requirement of magnesium can be well covered with the help of magnesium as a dietary supplement.

3. when does one have an increased need for magnesium?

Under certain conditions, the human organism needs more magnesium than the recommended daily amount. Athletes in particular have an increased magnesium requirement. The reason for this is the increased excretion of minerals and electrolytes. This is caused by physical activities and movements. It is advisable to take magnesium after training, as magnesium has a muscle-relaxing effect. During pregnancy, more magnesium is excreted through the urine, which often results in a magnesium deficiency. Pregnant women and nursing mothers have a higher magnesium requirement, as they have to provide for their unborn child and the infant. Many people who are often exposed to stress have an increased requirement. Stress causes high amounts of magnesium to be lost, as stress hormones stimulate cells, which in turn release magnesium into the blood. The rest is increasingly excreted in the urine. If the magnesium level drops very quickly, symptoms such as muscle cramps and eyelid twitching can develop. Diabetics often suffer from a magnesium deficiency and need to take in more magnesium. The reason for this is increased excretion due to the elevated blood sugar levels. This occurs via the urinary tract. Magnesium can have a strong influence not only on the effect of insulin, but also on the course of the disease. Some medications, such as gastric acid blockers, make it more difficult for magnesium to be absorbed by the intestines. For this reason, interactions should always be taken into consideration.

4. magnesium in the form of food supplements

If you want to increase a magnesium level that is too low with a dietary supplement, you should always pay attention to the form of the active ingredient and its origin. Magnesium capsules are particularly suitable for increasing magnesium levels. They are very well tolerated and are utilized by the body to a high degree. The preparation should also not contain any chemical additives such as magnesium stearate or microcrystalline cellulose. If you buy a preparation from Germany, you can be sure that the product has also been produced safely and is of high quality.
