    Can’t I just guzzle some MOM and chase it with seltzer ? Or does this reaction not occur in my belly ?

    Yeah that's 1667mg Magnesium, I can't even get less than 3tablespoon M.O.M.~3600mg MgOH2, 1500mg Mg , to dissolve in one liter seltzer. I'm gonna play around with it and see if I can get a better ratio

    Sometimes I have to do the "shake for 30 seconds followed by 30min refrigeration" three or four times before everything mixes well. Any more and it lets me know I used too much powder.

    Actually sounds like a walk in the park compared to what people do with eggshells here.

    Huh?

    All I do is weigh the powder, mix, shake, walk away, and try to remember re-shaking later in the day. The time between shakes isn't exact lol. I'll make a new batch when I have 1-2 servings left so I don't have to be meticulous with the process. Using a 2L bottle (same ratios) helps cut down repetitiveness.

    Are you ok with imploding ones?
    If you have powder left at the bottom later on you put in too much Mg hydroxide or didn't shake enough or cool enough.

    Want to clarify: is 3 tablespoons of magnesium hydroxide a reasonable amount to add to a 1 liter bottle of seltzer? And that would make 1500mg of magnesium bicarbonate per bottle?

    What's a good estimate for a daily amount of magnesium bicarbonate be for most people?

    3 tablespoons of magnesium hydroxide is def not right. Have to measure out 4 grams next time.

    Remember that this is a concentrate, once it is done you need to dilute it down. I'm not where I have my info, but I believe, don't quote me, that 330 ml of concentrate woud be added to a gallon of purified water to my drinkable alkaline water.

    Correction - ....purified water to 'be' drinkable alkaline water.

    It tastes better if you use less MgOH, I have a feeling what you are tasting is dissolved MgOH (it’s obviously not very soluble but it must be a little). If you put in just enough to react completely but not so much that the bottle caves in you should just have magnesium bicarbonate and even the concentrated mix just tastes like strong mineral water. Try 3.5g of MgOH

    Tried this to get magnessium bicarbonate:


    Seems to work pretty well: water seems pretty clear after two shakes
    Strange thing I notice (drinking it up to 30 ml per 250 ml of water) is that I have a strange sensation that water "tastes" better, like thicker, but it's subtle and I'm not sure why.
    Haven't noticed something relevant supplementing with it, yet. No digestive issues so far.

    When I use the 330 ml concentrate to a gallon of the final drinkable water, and I measure the Ph, I get about 9 Ph. For me, I don't want to drink that high of a Ph water since I don't want to inhibit digestion. I use half the amount of concentrate/gallon, and when I measured the PH it came out close to 7 Ph. I like that better, but the compromise is that the amount of magnesium isn't as much in the water, however, I can drink it whenever I want and don't have to work it around meals, etc. Plus, I also use other Mg supplements in my regimen.

    It tastes a hell of a lot better with some carbonation left in too (ie all MgOH has been reacted).

    Hi again
    I've being drinking this formula without diarrhea or any negatives. How could we measure Mg levels in this? Is the Magnessium hydroxide amount in mg in milk of magnesia added the same available Magnessium in the final liquid?
    I would like to know how much magnesium I'm getting drinking this...
