Have you ever been diagnosed with supraventricular tachycardia or wolff parkinson white syndrome? Does your heart race when you are not exercising? Your heart rate should be no higher than 220 minus your age. That is when you are exercising. Depending on you age, your heart rate should be between 80 and 120 beats per minute (bpm). There is usually a reason for palpitation. You should see a cardiologist. Maneuvers for a racing heart (if that is what you have) are called vagal maneuvers which would be...headstand, submerging face in ice water, bearing down (like to have a bm), holding your breath, breathing through a straw or ice packs to the face and wrists. A headstand is the most effective. You should defiantly cut out caffeine. But there are no vitamins that will help with this condition.

Chromium gives some people (like me) heart palpitations.  Check for it in your vitamins.  It's also in SlimFast shakes.   I've also noticed if I eat a lot of chinese food, gassy foods like broccoli or spinach will cause palps too.  And last but not least,  constipation brings it on.
