Wow wikipedia! I prefer a source that has a scientific foundation under it.This reliable source not only proves your childish claim that Epsom Salts are a pharmaceutical is stupendously ignorant and that the common sense fact that combining a base(magnesium) with an acid (sulfate) neutralizes their combined effect.
As usual and consistent from your posting history you are 100% wrong again.
You should learn to do some real research before posting to avoid being consistently wrong!!!!!
LOL!!! Interestingly you have no concept of disassociation. And this means you are also very likely not familiar with the concept of exchange reactions, which is actually what is more at play with Epsom salt ingestion. Not surprising at all. But since you claim that the pH is neutral then how do you explain other sources showing a slightly acidic pH? For example here:
Magnesium sulfate (n=7, e=2.8 mg/L) is a slightly acidic drying agent.
Then there are the MSDS for magnesium sulfate that show a pH from neutral to slightly acidic:
Some MSDS show a pH of 6, which guess what? Yep, 6 is acidic.
But again the pH in water is not really what is of concern. It is what it does in the body. For example, sodium chloride, that can also be considered neutral, can form both an acid and a base in the body. So the fact that the "liver flush" supporters are only focusing on the neutral to acidic pH of magnesium sulfate in water just goes to show either how misleading they really are or how they really don't understand how things really work in the human body. More likely a combination of both.
