    Hi April, as a sometimes sufferer of AF, and one who believes control of stomach is crucial in minimising AF/palpitations, I try to get all the necessary minerals through foodstuffs, as opposed to supplements, although I do take a daily dose of Nutrimonium, more for the pre and probiotics, but it's packed with minerals as well.

    So my answer to your question would be Nuts! Almonds, cashews and plenty of them. I'm sure there's many other sources, but these seem to work for me.

    Best Regards

      Sherpa_Al,

      An Italian medic using Pulse Wave Velocity analysis show that too many nuts decrease arterial function. Be wary of the powerful 'Nut Industry'. They would have us believe that you can't eat too many nuts!!

      @Conns, interesting about nuts, they have a lot of polyunsaturated fats, and I've seen some people express some concern about too many polyunsaturated fats, for other reasons as well.

      Oops, I've been eating probably too many nuts too, and am cutting down now.

      Hi Jason,

      Well as a non-scientist, it gave me that impression, and I was happy to give AprilBday12 the benefit of the doubt, but it sounds as if you have a different perspective.

      Simple stuff like 

      Magnesium Oxide (MgO) is simply bonded to oxygen, which is obviously also something your body needs 

      That's like suggesting your body can use the oxygen in water

    I agree with Sherpa.. Natural food intake .. BTW: I used to take Magnesium Citrate (it's a chelated form and inexpensive) but I think it interacted with my calcium channel blocker and my results were inconsistent.  

    However, I started taking Apple Cider Vinegar for other reasons and lo and behold my episodes of afib have greatly diminished.  

    I think everyone concentrates on magnesium but there are other electrolytes that affect afib, including potassium and ACV (apple cider vinegar affects that)..

    So, yes, almonds, walnuts, cashews (all raw and unsalted) but also ACV (2 tablespoons daily with 2 glasses of water)

    Also really important: stay hydrated and in the summer when it is hot make sure you get enough salt.  I have taken to eating a few mouthfuls of sauerkraut on hot days, and then more water.

    Fermented foods are very very good for you.

    Good luck
