mMagBicarb is USP grade magnesium hydroxide that is tested at a 99.9% purity (no fishy, metal taste). We source our magnesium from the Dead Sea where we also get our other magnesium products. mMagbicarb must be infused into carbonated water in order to create magnesium bicarbonate, like nature intended. Starting with purified water (carbonated spring water can be used) is key and then adding unprocessed salts along with restructuring creates the most potent form of magnesium bicarbonate water in the world.
Magnesium bicarbonate or magnesium hydrogen carbonate, Mg(HCO₃)₂, is the bicarbonate salt of magnesium. It can be formed through the reaction of dilute solutions of carbonic acid and magnesium hydroxide.
Dr. Beckett has recommended two levels of consumption—a therapeutic and a maintenance level. The therapeutic dose is 2 liters/day on an empty stomach at least 45 minutes before a meal. The maintenance dose is ½ liter/day. Most people should build up to the therapeutic dose – taking 2 or more weeks to get to the 2 liters/day level. Start with 500 ml (1/2 liter)/ day. Break this into 2 does and take one first thing in the morning (or even when you get up at night to go to the bathroom if your morning is rushed) – then later in the day before a meal or before bed – always on an empty stomach. If you take the magnesium bicarbonate water with food, the bicarbonates will be neutralized (and of little therapeutic value) by the stomach acid that is produced when food is ingested. Depending on age and health, take the therapeutic dose for six months to a year, then reduce to the maintenance level. You may also want to take the therapeutic dose for 2-3 weeks out of each year thereafter.
Matt's Thoughts: This source of magnesium hydroxide is higher quality than what you can buy from the BulkSupplements website. It is the most affordable supplement you can take when you make it yourself at home with cooled and carbonated water. The detailed instructions on how to make it are on their product page in both text and video form.
If you're buying any premade bottled magnesium bicarbonate products I highly recommend you STOP doing that and ONLY make your own at home. You'll save a ton of money.
