High Pulse Rate

Posted by S on 08/02/2007

Thanks Ted. I am going to try vitamin B-complex thrice a week. Is there any special kind of Vitamin E I should take? I am already taking Vitamin C and try to take some cod-liver-oil ( Vitamin A & D). I am just not sure abt the king of B-complex and Vitamin E. If I am eating 2 tbsp of wheat germ every day, am I covered for Vitamin E, or should I buy the supplement.

Also I will try your suggestion of like 1/16 th tsp of Magnesium Citrate powder in a liter of water and see if I can tolerate that. Perhaps I should also get Potassium Bi-carbonate powder as well. As you said, we should go easy with POtassium, as too much of potassium can be harmful. So just a pinch of POtassium bicarbonate, right?

If the B-complex and Magnesium does not work, I am gonna buy some sodium thiosulphate and give that a try.

I am hopeful, I can beat this problem. I might also take some Zinc ( I found some Zinc GLuconate 50 mg tabs) . I guess the dose would be like once a month? Best regards

Usually natural vitamin E are more effective.

So just a pinch of Potassium bicarbonate, right?

I might also take some Zinc ( I found some Zinc GLuconate 50 mg tabs) . I guess the dose would be like once a month?

A precautionary dose I will usually take them once a month, but if I catch cold easily or have oily skin, I may take it more frequently.

For me it is usually it is best to go easy on the potassium. I would monitor myself to determine the proper dose looking at my heart. Assuming I won't monitor usually a pinch is what I would start out with anyway.

The key to high pulse rate are the electrolytes imbalance, those are usually the basics. Vitamin E will raise some blood pressure and that should help some, which is seen as beneficial for those with low blood pressure.

There are some amino acids which plays a role in the controlling the transports of sodium, magnesium and potassium such as L-glutamine or glutaminic acid, which is an amino acid. However, I am a bit more conservative and prefer an amino acid supplements in general before I consider taking the glutamine and glutamic acid separately as a supplement. Generally I have seen one woman who haven't gotten to eating fish and protein diets for quite sometime to have heart problem such as fast beat of heart as well. Even if it were not possible to obtain such amino acid supplements there are soy sauce (without MSG) in the market which is high in amino acid that can be added to the food, or soy proteins, or whey protein, whichever preferences people prefer so the body can normalize them further.
