Magnesium bicarbonate is a complex hydrated salt only found in liquid form, it is naturally present in pristine drinking water, it is not found in any foods. Prior to the industrial revolution, when food was food, there were 84 organic plant based minerals in the foods we ate and bicarbonate salts in the water we drank. It is impossible to get MAGNESIUM BICARBONATE through eating food.
Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the human’s body and is essential to good health. Some 60% of it in the human body is contained within the bones, over 25% in the muscles and the rest in soft tissue and body fluids; only 1% is found in the blood, which makes it very difficult to test for a magnesium deficiency. The problem of measuring accurate amounts of magnesium in the body is difficult because intracellular magnesium is what needs to be measured… and it cannot be done with routine magnesium tests. The implications of this widespread magnesium deficiency are frightening.
WARNING: MOST MAGNESIUM SUPPLEMENTS ARE USELESS, SOME ARE EVEN DANGEROUS!
There are over 10 types of magnesium being pawned off to the uninformed public as nutritional supplements. Magnesium Chloride is being pawned off as a bio-available form of magnesium… I will ask you one question: do you want magnesium or chloride? We are already exposed to excess isolated chloride in many of the foods we consume. Where did we come in contact with isolated Magnesium Chloride in nature? We didn’t! When you put Magnesium Chloride on your skin the chloride causes a burning pain and you feel a heavy tingling sensation… that is a clear warning of chloride poisoning.
In nature magnesium bicarbonate was absorbed with water into the bloodstream through the small intestine. Just think about this, if magnesium bicarbonate is delivered to the body in water, how can taking metal magnesium pill or rubbing magnesium chloride on your skin be a replacement for drinking magnesium bicarbonate water, the majority of these supplements are excreted in the stool or urine.
Magnesium bicarbonate is necessary for the “spark of life”. The brain and the heart which both produce lots of magneto-electrical activity are very sensitive to levels of magnesium bicarbonate.
