Magnesium Bicarbonate is only found in liquid form and virtually non-existent in our modern water supply due to industrialization and other factors. Our Mg is the highest dosage per ounce on the market combined with bicarbonate salts, potassium and sodium.
Our Magnesium is produced with a 72-hour slow drip Co2 saturation process.
**Comes with a carbonated taste.
WHAT IS MAGNESIUM?
Magnesium is a mineral, minerals turn on enzymes (enzymes are keys to a car), and as one of the main electrolytes that runs the entire body controls over 3,700+ enzymatic reactions. Guess what our digestion, hormones, energy levels, sleep, recovery, production of hormone D, mood, focus, and pancreas need to function optimally?... You guessed correctly, MAGNESIUM. Our body is made of trillions of cells, each one runs of the energy currency called adenosine triphosphate (ATP), so when magnesium is not present, all systems of the body can begin shutting down or not functioning properly.
WHY IS EVERYONE DEFICIENT?
Our body stores magnesium up to 25,000mg like a reserve tank and there are many factors that deplete our stores. What we did not understand for many years was magnesium is the first mineral to leave the body under a stress response. Whether you get cut off in traffic, have a surgery, eat fried food, have a negative work environment, or supplementing calcium/iron/vitamin D, all deplete your magnesium reserve tank. It can be a physical, chemical, emotional, environmental, or nutritional stress we encounter unknowingly, which continues to take magnesium out of our bank. If you have done nothing to replenish it, soon your body goes bankrupt and symptoms slowly begin to show.
We live in an unnatural world with more stressors present than just 50 years ago that we call this the “magnesium burn rate”. It is important to learn about what habits or lifestyle choices can be causing a stress response internally to stop the dumping of this vital mineral, as well as begin replenishing our tank from all the years depletion! If you want to learn more about these stress-causing habits, we list over 20 you could be doing or have done to stop or at least mitigate in our anti-stress starter guide.
There are over 10 types of magnesium being touted to the public as nutritional supplements. Lactate, glycinate, malate, citrate, sulfate, chloride, oxide, carbonate, hydroxide, hydroxyl, orotate, chelate, taurate, and malate are the most common people take. The most bioavailable and natural form is magnesium bicarbonate.
In nature, we came in contact with organic magnesium (which plants converted into organic plant-based magnesium) in the food we ate and magnesium bicarbonate in the water we drank. Magnesium bicarbonate ion (HCO3) with the mineral magnesium hydroxide attached to it is an excellent base to buffer acids. This means the bicarbonate our body synthesizes will bind with magnesium hydroxide to produce magnesium bicarbonate.
MISINFORMATION & HOW TO CHECK PROPER MAGNESIUM LEVELS
As Dr. Carolyn Dean discusses in her book, The Magnesium Miracle, her first 2 years of medical school was about diseases. In the second two years she studied drug treatments for those diseases. She spent no time on nutrient deficiencies. According to the magnesium expert Mildred Seelig, M.D., while a tremendous amount of magnesium research has been done in India, Britain, France and a number of other countries, doctors in the United States use the excuse that not enough research has been done here for them to feel informed enough to prescribe it. Dr. Seelig calls this the “not-invented-here syndrome”.
There are hundreds of ways that our bodies utilize magnesium, which makes it impossible for science to identify its “most important function”. This approach for looking for the single pivotal function of a supplement is based on the medical model of “one symptom, one diagnosis, one drug”. Science depends on this model to isolate one variable at a time for scientific testing, but they do not seem to realize that it would be unreasonable and impossible to limit food nutrients, such as magnesium in that way. Since it is involved in about 42% (3,751+) of the human body's enzymatic function and interacts with dozens of other nutrients like Vitamin D status, cholesterol, calcium, potassium, & sodium.
There are over 1,000 research papers authored by Drs. Burton and Bella Altura, providing the value of magnesium, but unfortunately seem to have done nothing to make the public aware of the importance of magnesium. Researchers will just keep getting funding to repeat the same studies and doctors will continue to ignore them because they never learned anything about the clinical application of magnesium in medical school. We all just have to dig a little bit more and be willing to grow and surpass our prior education/belief systems. People can do their own Magnesium RBC test as requestatest.com to fully understand where his/her levels are at. Serum blood tests are not a sufficient indicator of magnesium levels because it is supposed to be found intracellularly and not in the blood.
