Drinking Magnesium Citrate


There's nothing I like better than a good poop story. Unfortunately with the subject of having to drink magnesium citrate, while it makes me laugh at what people have to go through to have a poop baby, it also pains me knowing what the stuff tastes like. I have had to drink magnesium citrate before. I always have used it as a last resort because of the taste, but the results are always worth it.

So I had been sitting here watching "I Shouldn't Be Alive," getting the courage up to drink some magnesium citrate, thinking that these people who faced death didn't really have it so bad: They didn't have to drink what I was about to drink. I digress...

Through desperation I found a way to drink magnesium citrate that made the experience bearable and left me with no aftertaste, and I wanted to share it with all of you.

First, fill one glass with room temperature water to avoid brain freeze (you'll see why) and fill another glass with ice. Pour the magnesium citrate over the ice and wait a few minutes, until it gets cold, and then scoop the ice out. Put a straw in each glass.

Second, and this is the most important part, set aside four to six Altoids mints. (Editor's note: The author did not specify a flavor.)

Third, put half a teaspoon of sugar on your tongue. Then put a straw in the chilled glass of magnesium citrate and, while holding your nose, drink that shit fast. If you have to take a break, breathe through your mouth and keep holding your nose!! Immediately after your finish the MC, keep holding your nose and eat those Altoids! I was totally amazed and astounded how well my method gets rid of the disgusting salty taste of the magnesium citrate.

Fourth, you then drink your eight-ounce glass of room temperature of water afterward. No aftertaste.

I'm still in shock. I should get an award for this discovery.

How do you handle the disgusting taste of magnesium citrate?

After years of consuming rotgut alcohol products such as Korean Soju or Japanese Shochu, both can be made from sweet potatoes, and the occasional swig of Tennessee Corn Whiskey I have no difficulty at all tossing off a bottle of Magnesium Citrate. I just turn the bottle up and empty it, no big deal. If there is an unpleasant aftertaste in my mouth I kill it with a bite or two of fermented squid or octopus.

If I had two faces do you think I'd be wearing this one?

Luckily, I have never had the pleasure of having to drink that crap, so I have no idea what it tastes like. I have no desire to find out anytime soon, either.

Cherry flavored mag. citrate actually isn't bad and sort of smells like a cherry jolly rancher.

I'm due for my semi-centennial scoping. I'll have to remember the cherry flavored shit juice when my time comes.

Magnesium Cit can't hold a candle to Suprep which tastes like a vinyl by product.

YOU are my new BEST FRIEND!!! I am having my first colonoscopy tomorrow and everyone I have talked to told me the procedure itself is a piece of cake (sorry for the food reference for all of you like me having clear liquids the day before the procedure) BUT the Magnesium Citrate made them gag or felt like getting sick just trying to consume it. I searched and found your step by step for making it bearable and while I was happy to have it I was still uneasy based on you using the word "bearable".

I decided to chill the MC in advance so I didn't have to deal with scoping out the ice and I substituted Life Saver Pep-o-Mints.

OF MY GOD - it was PERFECT! I kept my nose pinched even when drinking the water just to make sure but all I tasted was the Life Saver Pep-o-Mints!!

Thank you ! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!!!

Don't let him fool you, even the cherry flavor tastes like crap. Good luck.
I had a colonoscopy scheduled for tomorrow, today they called and said they had to reschedule.... ...... I had already drank the MC, I was so pissed.

BRILLIANT! First dose I puked up. Then I read your column. Worked like a charm. Thank you so much. Why don't doctors tell us these tricks?

Just did your method and it worked amazingly well! The only thing I did differently was I used peppermint essential oil instead of Altoids. Miraculous! And now - we wait :-/

Thanks for your tips! Worked really well, except I switched the Altoids for Ice Breakers Mints. Thank you!

Mixed the cherry citramag with apple juice and ice and it is "tolerable"

YES! This really works, keep holding your nose longer than you think necessary and suck the mints. Now I'm following up with mint tea. I used breath saver mints. Thanks so very much.

I def chilled the cherry flavor, had 2 dentyne ice crystal gum cubes at the ready, a cup of room temp h2o...extracted the ice, chugged that shit without a straw whilst plugging my nose...kept nose plugged until I felt the gum coat my ENTIRE mouth, AND treated the pint of Cherry MC like I was competing in a Pub Crawl beer contest! Feel super nauseous but, didn't taste a thing...now just waiting for my contractions
