This is Magnesium chloride pharmaceutical grade is supplied in aluminium doypack pouch with resealable zip grip and heat seal.
Magnesium chloride is an important coagulant used in the preparation of tofu from soy milk.Medical and veterinary use
Magnesium chloride is one of the readily available forms of this element. It provides magnesium ions and chlorine that are needed to stimulate the activity of the digestive enzymes and the production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach. With an optimal combination is widely used in the treatment of neurological disorders (depression) and cardiac (magnesium deficiency causes growth failure, and cardiac dysrhythmia). Taking large amounts of magnesium chloride can cause disorders of the digestive system, recommended daily intake (RDI) is between 360 – 410 mg. For problems such as stress, aging, cardiovascular problems and signs of calcification, many doctors recommend increasing it to 1,000 mg per day (1g). It is important to divide the dose throughout the day into smaller portions – increases the absorption and reduces the risk of purging. It can be added to foods and beverages (preferably the juice to lose its bitter-salty taste).Use as an anti-icer
Number of state highway departments throughout the United Kingdom have decreased the use of rock salt and sand on roadways and have increased the use of solutions of magnesium chloride as a de-icer or anti-icer. Magnesium chloride is much more friendly to plant life surrounding highways and airports, and is less corrosive to concrete and steel (and other iron alloys) than sodium chloride. The liquid magnesium chloride is sprayed on dry pavement (tarmac) prior to precipitation or wet pavement prior to freezing temperatures in the winter months to prevent snow and ice from adhering and bonding to the roadway. The application of anti-icers is utilized in an effort to improve highway safety. Magnesium chloride is also sold in crystal form for household and business use to de-ice sidewalks and driveways. In these applications, the compound is applied after precipitation has fallen or ice has formed, instead of previously.
Use in dust and erosion control
Road departments and private industry may apply liquid or powdered magnesium chloride to control dust and erosion on unimproved (dirt or gravel) roads and dusty job sites such as quarries. It’s hygroscopy makes it absorb moisture from the air, controlling the number of small particles which become airborne. Magnesium chloride is acidic due to the hydrochloric compound for the amplification of electrified hydrogen atoms. Owners of indoor arenas (e.g. for horse riding) may apply magnesium chloride to sand or other floor materials to control dust.
Use in hydrogen storage.
Magnesium chloride has shown promise as a storage material for hydrogen. Ammonia, which is rich in hydrogen atoms, is used as an intermediate storage material. Ammonia can be effectively adsorbed onto solid magnesium chloride, forming Mg(NH3)6Cl2. Ammonia is released by mild heat, and is then passed through a catalyst to give hydrogen gas.
Magnesium in natural seawater values are between 1250 mg/L and 1350 mg/L. Magnesium helps to stabilize the correct combination of calcium, alkalinity, and pH values. Severely low values of magnesium (900 mg/L or below) can cause low pH values and an inability to maintain proper alkalinity and calcium values. If levels of magnesium become too low, coral growth ceases; decline of coral health follows. Carbonates and calcium are essential for all growth of corals, coralline algae, clams, and invertebrates. Maintaining the correct magnesium values is very important and is indirectly responsible for coral and coralline algae growth by making it possible to maintain correct calcium, alkalinity, and pH values. Magnesium can be depleted by mangrove plants and the use of excessive Kalkwasser or by going beyond natural calcium, alkalinity, and pH value.
