How is Magnesium sulfate used?

    “It is often encountered as the heptahydrate, MgSO4ยท7H2O, commonly called Epsom salt. Anhydrous magnesium sulfate is used as a drying agent. Since the anhydrous form is hygroscopic (readily absorbs water from the air) and is therefore difficult to weigh accurately, the hydrate is often preferred when preparing solutions, for example in medical preparations.” Though it is also used in agriculture to replace depleted levels of magnesium in the soil, “since magnesium is an essential element in the chlorophyll molecule.” It can even be used as a coagulant to help make soy into tofu. It also has a number of medical uses in replacement therapy for hypomagnesemia, as an antiarrhythmic agent, and in treating pain related to fibromyalgia and osteoporosis, to name just some of the many medical uses it has.
