I don't think I'm getting enough magnesium in my diet.

The thing about buying a white powder: how does one know if it isn't cornflour?

Same problem with buying cocaine, I guess.

Me: before and after taking my magnesium.

[or is it the other way around?]

I hate it when I get cocaine instead of cornflour. It's crap for dumplings.

@jamie
Yeah, but, the dumplings just seem better.

@fitheach
If you really want to know:

For
MAGNESIUM
Dissolve about 15 mg of the substance to be examined in 2 mL
of water R or use 2 mL of the prescribed solution. Add 1 mL of
dilute ammonia R1. A white precipitate is formed that dissolves
on addition of 1 mL of ammonium chloride solution R. Add
1 mL of disodium hydrogen phosphate solution R. A white
crystalline precipitate is formed.

@Wizardofosmium
Not sure I would go that far. 😃
Are these ingredients readily available at the chemists?

@fitheach
Maybe just give it (aka white powder) a try. If you like its effect, do you still care what kind of powder it is?🤔

@pandora
I did buy from someone that I thought was a reputable source. Consequently, I paid a little extra.

I'll let you know if it is effective to-morrow.

@fitheach
Language question: "to-morrow" - Is that a common spelling for the next day in Scotland or are you a native speaker of Gaelic (a-màireach)?

@Wizardofosmium

@fitheach
Like with cocaine, the answer is chemistry! According to Wikipedia you should be able to dissolve around 20 grams into 100ml of water, that shouldn't be too hard to test.

@uglyhack
Cornflour doesn't dissolve in water, but, other powders might.

@penguin42
I might consider one of those, if I get into the cocaine distribution business.
