Using Magnesium Oil with Vitamin D
Thanks for your page about the importance of using magnesium oil with vitamin D.
You spelled out the answer I was looking for.
I've been taking 5,000 IU of vitamin D for a few months now and recently started suffering episodes of rapid and/or irregular heartbeat. I put it down to recent stress and anxiety - or high levels of zinc I've also been taking (for 'pyroluria'). But stopping the zinc didn't fix it.
Now I've stopped the vitamin D since yesterday and I have a feeling this was causing it. I've just started using magnesium oil and will wait to reintroduce the vitamin D until I feel the magnesium has improved. (I'm also hoping to see improvement with issues such as digestion, sexual function, and scalp psoriasis.)
Glad you found the page about magnesium and vitamin D
helpful. Magnesium deficiency is incredibly common and in and of itself a serious health concern.
A lot of people are finding themselves in your situation. They learn about the importance of raising their vitamin D levels, but find that they have trouble taking enough (or have trouble raising their levels even though they are taking enough vitamin D).
Generally, the underlying cause with a problem like yours is a magnesium deficiency.
Magnesium is required for proper utilization of vitamin D (among other critical functions). If you increase your vitamin D intake and are low in magnesium, you can experience the kind of side effects you mentioned (heart racing and arrhythmia).
So why is this happening? Your vitamin D intake is revealing an underlying magnesium deficiency (enough magnesium is critical for proper heart function). Perhaps alarming for you, but it's incredibly good to know. Now you can do something about it.
The magnesium oil is a fast and easy way to get your levels up to where they should be. Just be sure to rotate the areas you spray it on for maximum absorption. Your levels will probably be in the healthy range within a couple of months (oral supplements are much less effective and can take a year or more!).
And just a brief mention about the zinc – if you try out the zinc taste test
, you'll know if you are getting enough of the mineral for good health.
Wishing you the best of health,
