The best time to take magnesium to prevent killer heart attacks

Back in December, I showed you how taking magnesium could save your life if you have a heart attack. If you’re having an attack, it’s vital you take the magnesium within three hours of having the attack. The sooner, the better. But have you ever wondered when is the best time to take magnesium to prevent the deadly attack in the first place?

Conventional medicine has said for years that you should take an aspirin every morning to prevent a heart attack. But I showed you that magnesium is much better than aspirin. So should you take it in the morning, like they tell you take aspirin?

According to a new study, the answer is yes. But it’s not the only time you should take it.

Researchers published the findings of their new study in the research journal Nature. They found that your risk of suffering “sudden cardiac death” is highest in the morning. The next highest risk period comes in the evening.

Why are you more likely to have a heart attack during these times? According to the researchers, your body has a 24-hour cycle that it works on called the Circadian rhythm. At certain times of the day, your body produces proteins. So the level of proteins in your body rises and falls on rhythmic patterns.

These changes in protein levels can impact your health. For instance, when your body’s patterns get out of whack — like when you have jet lag — you feel it. One protein in particular affects your heart rate. The kruppel-like factor 15 (Klf15) protein influences the ions that control your heart’s pumping pattern. If you have too much of this protein, or too little, you can have a heart attack. The researchers said these peaks and valleys typically occur in the morning and the evening.

The researchers in this case suggested developing slow-release medications to make sure your heart has the protection it needs. However, I’ve never heard of one heart attack that occurred because of a drug deficiency. So that’s not the protection you need. You need to provide your heart with the fuel it needs to sustain these changes in protein levels. Remember, these changes are normal occurrences, so you don’t want to change them. You want your heart to be strong and ready to handle the normal bodily processes of life. And to do that, you need ample magnesium.

So what’s the best time to take your magnesium? I suggest you divide your daily dose between morning and night. It’s far better to keep your heart supplied with the mineral all the time and avoid a heart attack throughout the day. If you’re taking Healthy Resolve, you’re getting 250 mg every morning and every evening. You can add up to another 250 mg in the morning and evening. Doing so can help protect you against having a deadly heart attack.
