Disease prefers the body to be in an acid state and fighting that acidity is not easy unless bicarbonates are employed. The body’s own natural solution to excess acid is to buffer with bicarbonates. The stomach, pancreas and kidneys all produce bicarbonate. With the onslaught of acidity from foods, stress and a host of toxins including prescription drugs our bodies often cannot keep up adequately with sufficient production of bicarbonates. This is where magnesium bicarbonate comes in, providing the body with a form of bicarbonate that is taken directly into the cells at therapeutic levels. It would not be a great exaggeration to look at magnesium bicarbonate as rocked fuel for the cells, especially for the mitochondria.
Bicarbonates are the primary transporters of oxygen in the body and are used to buffer acidity, while magnesium is known as the master mineral because it’s vital for most bodily functions. Usually magnesium and bicarbonates come attached to something our bodies do not need any more of, like sodium for the most common form of bicarbonate or the many things attached to common magnesium formulas. Part of the genius of magnesium bicarbonate is that these two necessary substances come packaged together.
Magnesium Bicarbonate is unique in that both minerals are desperately needed by the body but rarely found together in nature except in some natural spring waters.
