Why we need Magnesium bicarbonate
Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps to maintain normal nerve and muscle function, plays a role in bone growth, supports the energy metabolism and helps in the maintenance of a normal balance in water and mineral concentrations in the human body. Magnesium helps in decreasing fatigue feelings. An adult body contains approximately 25 g magnesium, with 50% to 60% present in the bones and most of the rest in soft tissues.
In daily work and exercise / sport, Magnesium plays a fundamental role in optimal muscle functions and energy metabolism. Magnesium and Calcium are antagonists. This means that a high concentration of Magnesium helps the body to excrete Calcium from the soft tissues.
The pH in your body is controlled by bicarbonates
Apart from a high Magnesium usage, the muscles produces acids. These acids have to be removed from the muscles by the body. Research shows that for optimal performance and well-being, the body’s pH level must be slightly alkaline (pH 7.4). If your body’s pH is not balanced, you cannot effectively assimilate vitamins, minerals and food supplements.
Sodium Bicarbonate can rapidly alkalize your body far more effectively than diet, but it can’t be continued long term because of the excess sodium. Magnesium Bicarbonate has no such problems and can be used long term but has the same ability to radically alkalize your body. A great part of our daily food intake has an acidifying effect on our body, and the body’s natural solution to excess acid is to buffer it with bicarbonate and to this end it produces its own bicarbonate. With the onslaught of acidity from foods and stress along with decreasing ability of the body to keep up with buffering all this acidity our bodies often cannot keep up adequately with sufficient production of bicarbonates (especially true as we age or if we have a chronic stress).
This is where Relaxxx Drink comes in providing the body with a form of Magnesium bicarbonate that is taken directly into the cells at therapeutic levels.
What is Relaxxx water exactly?
Relaxxx water is unique in that both minerals which are needed by the body but rarely found together in nature are now combined in one bottle. The bottle is a concentrated stock solution, containing 37 g/L Magnesium Bicarbonate. With a daily use of 30 ml Relaxxx diluted in 1 liter (carbonated) mineral water (preferably with as less Calcium and Sodium as possible), you provide your body with 1,14 gram soluble Magnesium per day.
How to prepare the Magnesium Bicarbonate Drink
- Store the stock solution in the refrigerator.
- Carefully open the bottle and take 30 ml (1 cup), mix it with 1 liter of cold (carbonated, flavoured) water.
- Drink 1 liter of this drink per day.
Frequently Asked Questions
Here is a recipe: start with 30 ml. therapeutic strength refrigerated relaxxx water. Process this in the Soda Stream with 900 ml water to carbonate it. (3-5 sprigs). Add 70 ml of any fresh fruit juice or reconstituted juice from frozen fruit juice concentrate or mixtures of juices.
It is not recommended to drink the Relaxxx water concentrate. When the concentrate is properly diluted to therapeutic strength, the resulting water is quite compatible with the carbonation in carbonated drinks. In other words, all acidity is NOT created equal: dissolved CO2 (also called H2CO3 or H-HCO3 or hydrogen bicarbonate) does not damage MagBicarb Water.
