Does anyone use Solgar magnesium supplements?


Does anyone use Solgar magnesium supplements? I thought they were synthetic and not whole food ones, but when I went into the local health food shop I was told that Solgar are wholefood supplements. So Im a bit confused. I’d like a wholefood mag supplement if anyone could recommend one (that’s available in the UK). Thanks!

  1. Magnesium bicarbonate is a complex hydrated salt only found in liquid form, it is naturally present in water, it is not found in any foods. Prior to the industrial revolution, when food was food, there were 84 organic plant based minerals in the foods we ate, and calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, and chloride bicarbonate salts in the water we drank. These electrolyte salts in water have nothing to do with with building muscles, organs, bones, and blood, the are electrolyte salts… they facilitate voltage gated ion channels in the body. There are over 10 different types of magnesium being pawned off to the uninformed public as nutritional supplements.

    In nature magnesium bicarbonate was absorbed with water into the bloodstream through the small intestine. Just think about this, if magnesium bicarbonate is delivered to the body in water, how can taking metal magnesium pill or rubbing magnesium chloride on you skin be a replacement for drinking magnesium bicarbonate water, the majority of these supplements are excreted in the stool or urine.

  2. Here is my recipe for Mag Water, Mg bicarbonate
    How to make Mag Water

  3. That includes: plain sparkling water, carbonated water, or Seltzer water, optionally soda water. The manufactures that make this stuff are not addressing the serious environmental pollutants in the water supply, ACID RAIN, which is leaching out chemicals from the plastic containers.

  4. Forgot to mention the: heavy metals, fluoride, chemicals, disinfection by-products, pharmaceuticals, and a laundry list of other toxins that pose serious health threats!

  5. Thank you so much! I've just ordered the now foods mg oxide powder and can't wait to try the mag water. Is it possible to overdose on magnesium? I think I've very deficient (haven't done tests but I am constantly tired, muscle pains, joint pain and inflammation).

  6. I guess I'm wondering how long a one litre bottle of mag water will last you? Would I keep it in the fridge?

  7. Zoe Lewis – I go through a liter of the concentrate, diluted, in two to three days. Doesn't need to be kept refrgerated once made.

  8. Great thanks MJ Hamp 🙂 I know this is a mag group but are there other vitamins or minerals you take in a "different" way. I guess I mean in a non standard way, ie taking pill form selenium for example

  9. Why does the mag oxide powder have to go in sparkling/carbonated water? Couldnt I use still water?

  10. Zoe Lewis – I get most of my nutrition from food. Here is my simple site.

  11. I hope this is not a stupid question but are Matthew Minardi and MJ Hamp / Hemant Trivedi advocating the same supplementation? It appears contradictory but I've not seen them address each other. I haven't attempted mag water yet but really like the magahol. Thanks again for all the great info.

  12. we use ionic mag 🙂 we are UK based I make mag water and have ES foot baths

  13. Zoe Lewis – without the sparkling water you won't make Mag Water, Mg bicarbonate.

  14. Alisan Hames – Mag Water is Mg bicarbonate that both Matthew and I drink. I also make and use Hemant's Mag-A-Hol which is made with Mg chloride and used on the skin.

  15. Ah, so what would it be with just plain water?

  16. can you make mag water with mag oxide powder? or only mag hydroxide powder?

  17. Zoe Lewis – Mg oxide + plain water (H2O) = Milk of Magnesia, Mg hydroxide.

  18. Ah OK thanks for that. I guess I can take MoM as well then? I was think of doing 1/4 tsp Mg oxide in 1 cup water. Would this be OK?

  19. LOL…. that would not be much, but a good start. 🙂
