Karuah Active Magnesium is easy to take in a multitude of ways. A scoopful or two can be added to juices, non-dairy smoothies (make your own nut ‘milk’) or add it to pancakes, oats, over cereals, soups, biscuits, meatballs, sauces – the list goes on ….
*** Here is a frustration alert!!! ***
I recently went to find a pre-prepared nut milk and raked over the shelves and pack information on milks made from almond, cashew, nut and soy blends. Horror!
All but one organic brand had calcium added and the organic one had soy milk with calcium added. WE DON”T NEED THIS MUCH CALCIUM!!! In fact, FAR more people taking calcium supplements suffer cardiac events such as strokes and heart attacks than break bones as they age.
It’s magnesium that we need … and lots of it.
The nut milk manufacturers have been misled by the dairy industry in the same way as they have misled the medical fraternity and the dopey governments that approve and say nothing negative about the falling nutritional value of all our produce.
But rather than ranting on and on, I bought bags of organic almonds, cashews, brazil nuts, pistachio and walnuts and made various combinations into my own milks. My regular mix is now 10g of a blend of those nuts I just listed. Add this to a Ninja-type blender and mill to a powder. Take it as fine as possible, even opening up the lid and scrapping down the sides as the oils in the nuts can make it stick.
Next, add 100ml of water, a scoop of Karuah Active Magnesium and blend again. This is your daily drink.
If you are a LIFE devotee, add your heaped teaspoonful of this too for the phytonutrients it contains.
Or another option is to add a high quality, pure, dark cocoa powder, say a heaped teaspoonful. I like the dark cocoa powder marketed under the Plaistowe brand and easy to find in supermarkets. This adds more magnesium and some PQQ which is too long to spell out but suffice to say, it is really good for your energy-powerhouses, the mitochondria, which are in most of our cells.
Blend it to smoothness and drink in the health, the energy and the enzyme food for the start of another amazing day.

Ingredients: pumpkin seed meal, sunflower seed meal, lemon myrtle, anise myrtle, black pepper, shiitake mushrooms
Recommended serving size: Add 1 scoopful (15g lightly packed) to water, juice or non-dairy nut milks. Whisk or shake well and enjoy the slightly spicy, nutty flavour up to twice a day (morning and night) or use 2 scoops (30g) as a single serve. It is impossible to be precise as to the ideal amount for each of us as our diets, activity, fitness level and existing magnesium:calcium balance will vary. Start with 1 scoop daily, add the odd extra at the other end of the day and see how it goes. If you suffer from night-time cramps, take Karuah Active Magnesium with dinner or before bed.
Each scoop delivers 100mg of magnesium and so 1 to 2 scoops each day is a wise addition to a healthy diet.
Food Facts: Karuah Active Magnesium can be added to biscuits, pancakes, cakes, rissoles, sauces, soups, dressings, used as a crumb or sprinkled over cereals or desserts. I like it stirred into a glass of milk of any kind; dairy (yes, it contains calcium so it is not ideal), coconut, almond, cashew or blends of nuts. Check the labels as some nut milks are fortified with calcium which is totally unnecessary, as we now know. Pure, unadulterated almond milk has near-zero calcium.
This is a natural, whole food source of magnesium and does not contain synthetic chemical or inorganic forms of magnesium.
May contain traces of tree nuts and sesame seeds which are packed on the same equipment.
