Magnesium hydroxide powder has many purposes. It can be added to plain water (ideally filtered!) and it becomes “milk of magnesia” and can be used as a deodorant, mouth wash or tooth paste or some choose to use it as a laxative.
Another popular use for those working within the Root Cause Protocol is to add it to carbonated water and to create a “magnesium water” (magnesium bicarbonate) concentrate. You then use smaller amounts of that within other water you may drink during the day.
Read on below for more information about how to use it.
Magnesium hydroxide is something most people can use at home!
Kristan prefers to use her filtered water and gases it with her soda stream rather than commercial carbonated water, but she always suggests people use whatever they have accessible. You may prefer to start with a bottle of commercial water and then one day get a soda stream.
In Australia, the water we typically look for at the shops for this is “soda” water – you want to check the label to make sure there’s nothing else in it beyond carbonated water. In other countries, it will go by other names – it may be Seltzer water (USA) or some countries will have it as mineral water. It pays to label read no matter where you are.
“Mag water” is readily used by the body and is well tolerated – you can start to add the concentrate in small amounts each day, and build up with ease – just add it to your drinking water. Kristan started with just 1 teaspoon per day, and with time, built that up to be 1/4 of her 1L water bottle each day.
In order to learn how to make mag water, you can watch this video! If the video doesn’t load for you below, please follow this link.
- 3/4 tsp magnesium hydroxide powder (I used this) or 45ml of milk of magnesia
- 1L of soda stream COLD carbonated water (could be a chilled bottle of carbonated water from your local store if preferred)
You may be interested to know that Kristan also adds some “potassium bicarbonate” to her water bottle too. She started with a small sprinkle within the 1L water bottle and has since increased it to be between 3/4 tsp to 1 tsp each day. How much works for you will be unique to you and learning to listen to your body here is important. Please Note: If you are currently being treated for kidney disease, please consult your healthcare professional before taking any magnesium or potassium supplement.
