I have supplemented with magnesium for a while now (usually 800mg of mg citrate/ascorbate) and can't say it has ever done anything with my moderately high blood pressure.
[/color][quote="ofonorow"][color=#0000FF]Sharon, your answer triggered a thought. Magnesium will lower BP. It is just a question of how much. There is some amount that will put anyone on the floor. For my brother, it was 3000 mg. So, you should be able to control your high BP with a good magnesium supplement until you figure this out. Just remember that at some level of mg intake your BP will go so low that you will start to feel faint and risk passing out.
As far as combining a High Arginine protocol with the Pauling protocol, I don't foresee a big problem, and it is too bad that Pauling's theories are not taught in medical schools. The benefits from "expanding" the diameter of arteries is real, and probably at least part of the benefit of high lysine (NO production), but the Vitamin C theory explains the root problem/cause and the real solution.
The question I have, Owen, is about the 3000mg your brother took. How long did it take to notice the effect and what type of magnesium was he taking? Was the 3000mg the amount that he was absorbing or taking?
