"One of the most important
discoveries from our research
was the fact that the administration of magnesium prior to
a heart attack or
even during a heart attack would prevent and protect the heart muscle from forming destructive internal crystals.
discovery of the modulating effect of magnesium in the early
'70's predated the use of calcium channel blockers (First Generation
'81, '82.) But the First Generation of CCBs were developed after
intensive calcium research and were only a slight improvement
from the first CCB effort in the 60s."
Although not promoted as well as channel blockers and less
expensive, the discovery of the calcium modulating effect of
magnesium contributed to the development of new protocols
and medications for the prevention and treatment of
The administering of magnesium is a course of action that has
saved many lives
and has prevented many patients from going into
fatal destruction of heart muscle and ensuing death.
The efficacy of magnesium and mortality has generated
more research in recent years, and the quality of life studies are
