Magnesium – Superhero Of Rejuvenation
Magnesium chloride or nigari in the Far East is, and increasingly in Western medicine, considered as a strong ally in the natural methods of preserving and restoring health.
To prepare tofu
Magnesium chloride describes the chemical composition of nigari. The Japanese word nigari translated into our language might be “bitter”. Nigar is formed as a by-product from the extraction of salt from sea water and is used for coagulation of soy milk in curd and by squeezing and pressing becomes tofu. This is the form in which the nigari is best known to Westerners. All those who have at least once in their lives thinking about preparing tofu at home sooner or later they had to meet nigari. But in Japan, nigari is used for other purposes, even in allopathic medicine.
The synergy with vitamin C
In Japan, there is a drink known as nigarisui and is prepared by dissolving 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of flakes of nigari in 1 liter of water. One gets the impression that the water with nigari becomes wetter, if at all possible, and therefore better quenches thirst, but in Japan, nigarisui is respected as a potion of rejuvenation and detoxification. If you add to nigarisui a spoonful of honey and fresh squeezed lemon juice, you will get excellent preparation with the bonus. Specifically, magnesium and vitamin C act in synergy, encouraging one to another better absorption. Results of clinical trials on the effect of magnesium on the immune system have shown that it strengthens the immune system even up to 300%, and in combination with vitamin C and high-quality honey is becoming an indispensable friend in health.
How much magnesium is important is evidenced by the fact that it participates in more than three hundred metabolic processes. Magnesium makes us a “flow-through” – that’s the only word that comes to mind, no matter how strange it sounds.
