Did I really just swallow that?

On the ingredients list of the now-decipherable Centrum Multivitamin/Multimineral Supplement, I ran into some ionic compounds that were understandable.  All ten listed below were on said ingredients list; it really is a multi-ionic compound supplement!

1) calcium carbonate

2) magnesium oxide

3) potassium chloride

4) cupric [copper (II)] sulfate

5) manganese sulfate

a) manganese (II) sulfate

b) manganese (III) sulfate

6) nickelous [nickel (II)] sulfate

7) zinc oxide

8) stannous [tin (II)] chloride

9) potassium iodide

10) sodium selenate

You can find ten more examples on my partner's blog.  Click here
