To prevent damage to cardiac mitochondria, the critical
question now is how do we measure what is going on inside cells without
heart surgery or invasive procedures.
We know that if you have adequate intracellular electrolytes such
as magnesium it avoids imbalanced cell metabolism, perhaps a heart attack,
it avoids myocardial necrosis, and calcium precipitation in cardiac tissue.
More recent research shows that, in many cases, it avoids Atrial
Fibrillation, a disturbance of the rhythm of the heart.
This illustration shows the heart muscle, the structures, and damage in the
mitochondria following a heart attack.
The insert is not an illustration but an actual micrograph of fresh human
tissue obtained during open heart surgery.
