Alkaline Water Recipe
An easy alkaline water recipe that adds a boost of minerals to your everyday drinking water.
Recipe type: Remedies & Supplements
  • 2 liters of carbonated water
  • 6 tablespoons plain Milk of Magnesia (sold in the pharmacy with laxitives)***+ Your daily drinking water
  1. Open your 2 liter of soda water. I like to place it in the sink just in case it overflows.
  2. Use a small fork and stick the tines down into the opening of the bottle. This also helps pop the bubbles so it won't overflow.
  3. If your soda bottle is very full, pour off a few Tablespoons of water to make room for the Milk of Magnesia.
  4. Shake your Milk of Magnesia, and measure out 6 Tablespoons. (This is a little more than ⅓ cup)
  5. Pour the Milk of Magnesia down the fork tines into the bottle.
  6. Put the lid on quickly and shake.
  7. Place in the fridge for half an hour or so, and shake again.
  8. Repeat: half hour and shake, and your concentrate is ready to use. (Or you can be lazy like I am and just make it at night and shake it once the next morning)
  9. This is your *concentrated* magnesium supplement. You'll add 2 Tablespoons of this concentrate per gallon of drinking water, so this 2 liter will treat over 36 gallons of water, turning it into alkaline water!
According to my calculations:

Per 8 oz. glass, the diluted alkaline water contains about 5 mg of magnesium and 2.5 mg of bicarbonate.

How Does It Work?
The water with carbon (carbonated water) reacts with the magnesium hydroxide (Milk of Magnesia) to create magnesium bicarbonate.
