bluedog,

I have found that the chemical supply houses supply two forms of magnesium chloride.

1) Anhydrous magnesium chloride, (anhydrous).
2) Magnesium chloride hexahydrate, (hydrate).

The hydrate is much more stable and contains six water molecules. Of the three chemical supply houses that I contacted, their product listed as just magnesium chloride, is actually the hydrate form. Anhydrous is close to 26 percent elemental magnesium by weight. The hydrate is close to 12 percent elemental magnesium by weight.

What I do is add the 500g hydrate to a quart jar and then fill it to one quart with water.

According to my math...

1) One quart contains 192 teaspoons.
2) 500g hydrate contains 60,000 mg elemental mag, (500,000 times 0.12).
3) One teaspoon of the mixture equals 312 mg elemental magnesium, (60,000 divided by 192).

Then I just add a teaspoon of this mixture to a shot of water. Bottoms up!

Aloha,
