Hi,

Is there any reason not to use magnesium sulfate (epsom salt) instead of magnesium chloride?

Can magnesium chloride crystals be purchased in bulk somewhere on the internet, e.g. 2kg?

Thanks,

No reason at all, other than the risk of diarrhea. If I'm not mistaken, the presence of the sulphate anion increases the osmotic pressure into the gut.

Magnesium sulphate is very inexpensive. I'm not sure what the tolerable dose would be, though. Here's a link that discusses doses of the various magnesium salts:

I don't know of a source. I know where to get magnesium ascorbate, though.
