Mg-Bicarbonate swap-in for Mg-Oxide?
« on: July 01, 2021, 07:43:55 AM »
The current protocol uses a lot of MgOxide.

What about using MgBicarbonate instead?

MgBicarbonate is much higher absorbed than MgOxide reducing the bowel stress (possibly unconverted Mg(OH2) using the below process). I don't think it should contribute to mitochondrial ETC / Kreb, etc.

It can be very easily made using the following process:

Essentially "clean Milk of Magnesia" + "clean carbonated water" + time.

Sure. Mag oxide is a terrible form, of course! It's only used in the EGCG fasting method, where purging the GI tract is a desired outcome. :D

During the maintenance protocol, better forms are suggested / used.

Fair enough...I should have done it during my colonoscopy prep! :)

J/K, that left my electrolytes somewhat depleted.
