What makes it improved? Well, for one thing, you can use just plain carbonated water, which is pretty easy to find. No trying to figure out if this or that soda water has the right ingredients. And you get to add your own baking soda to it, so you get a really complete reaction with the magnesium.
And a really big benefit of this method is that I show you what I use to flavor the whole bottle. So you won’t have to drink it plain. (Some think it tastes sweet, and some…not so much (the term “dirty sock water” has come up.)
- a 2 liter of plain , carbonated water; a.k.a. “Seltzer Water”
- 1/2 t. sodium bicarbonate of your choice (baking soda)
- 1/4 c. (4 T.) plain Milk of Magnesia
- 1 dropperful of your favorite flavored “SweetLeaf” stevia liquid concentrate.
Follow the directions for mixing on the printable Magnesium Supplement Recipe here.
The end result will give you approximately the same proportion of carbon+magnesium, which = magnesium carbonite.
I’ve recently learned also, that magnesium carbonite can be slightly neutralizing to your stomach acid, so if you’re a person who struggles with acid reflux from not having strong enough HCl, then you may consider adding in a supplemental form, OR, looking at bitter herbs to help increase your digestive juices all the way around. Which is what I’m studying now. 🙂 Hope to post on that soon!
