Magnesium Protects the Mitochondria

Published on December 8, 2009

Magnesium Protects the Mitochondria. Magnesium and bicarbonate given together work to combat the drop in energy within the mitochondria during constant bombardment from toxins. First, magnesium bicarbonate protects the natural organic and inorganic phosphate buffers in the cytoplasm of cells. Second, magnesium bicarbonate neutralizes the acid produced as a result of metabolic processes and ATP hydrolysis. This allows more ATP to be hydrolyzed, or more energy to be made. Magnesium bicarbonate buffers the mitochondria in body cells from excess acid concentrations, which improves mitochondrial function and increases ATP.

    I have been reading on your site about using magnesium chloride; here I read about magnesium bicarbonate. What is the difference and which is better?

      Dr. Sircus considers magnesium and sodium bicarbonate when used together to be the ultimate mitochondrial coctail , which protects against many disturbances and which you can read about here:

      There is also more about this in either his magnesium book, or the sodium bicarbonate book.

      All forms are exceleent whether used alone or together as in magnesium bicarbonate. They do different things in our bodies, but together they are unbeatable. Dr. Sircus prefers to use the separately instead of mixing them together.
