Make a Relaxing Magnesium Water In Order To Get Rid Of Headaches And Muscle Pain


Magnesium is responsible for over 300 enzymatic reactions within the body, including the metabolism of food, synthesis of fatty acids and proteins, and the transmission of nerve impulses. The human body contains around 25 grams of magnesium. With 50-60% stored in the skeletal system, the rest resides in muscle, soft tissue, and bodily fluids. So that is why when magnesium levels are low, the body becomes at risk for diseases such as osteoporosis, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.

Because the body can retain good levels of magnesium, it’s considered rare to experience deficiency symptoms. There are specific groups of individuals who may be susceptible to lower levels of magnesium. If you have gastrointestinal diseases, type 2 diabetes, or alcohol dependency, you may be at risk for magnesium deficiency.

The recipe below is based on the reaction of magnesium hydroxide (found milk of magnesia) with plain carbonated water. Here’s how to make your own:


  • 1- liter bottle of fully carbonated unflavored seltzer water. Be sure the seltzer contains only water and carbon dioxide (CO2). Note: You can also use club soda with a small amount of added sodium.
  • 3 tablespoons Milk of Magnesia (MoM)
  1. Chilla 1-liter bottle of fully carbonated unflavored seltzer water.
  2. Thoroughly shake the bottle of Milk of Magnesia. Measure and set aside 3 tablespoons.
  3. Carefully remove the chilled seltzer from the fridge. Make sure that you don’t shake or agitate it. To minimize the loss of CO2. Once the initial fizzing subsides, add the Milk of Magnesia.
  4. Replace the cap on the water bottle immediately. Shake the mixture vigorously for 30 seconds or until the liquid is cloudy.
  5. Set aside for approximately 30 minutes. You will notice the liquid will have cleared, and any un-dissolved magnesium hydroxide will have settled to the bottom of the bottle.
  6. Add lemon for taste and enjoy!
Repeat this process one more time. Once the liquid is clear again, all of the magnesium hydroxide in the MoM should have reacted with all of the CO2 to become dissolved (ionized) magnesium and bicarbonate.
